Comments: our missile site were ten miles south of seoul korea, the firing battery were on the Dmz, and just a year before in 1969 agent orange was sprayed, and in 1970 in june of that year followup spraying was done in area where it never took affect so well, does anyone have any pictures of the area along the dmz line where the posion agent orange was sprayed, i have type two diabetes and prostate trouble and rash break out in my head, do you know anyone that has got compensated for service in korea for agent orange . i file for it and was turned down, the dod reported than they had no record of where i was located in korea.. it is on my dd forteen. it is my firm belief that the war dept knows where troops were serving in war times ,

Comments: Was stationed at Camp Stanley in 75-76 supporting DIVARTY. My job was in Q/C inspection section. I will always remember the people of Korea as kind. Had many KATUSA friends. I was stationed between the villages of Kon Son Li and Mongah-dae. about 7 miles east of Uijungbu. When not in the field we ran 4 miles every morning before breakfast (can't do that anymore). Was there when the North Koreans hacked to death Major Bonifas and another officer. Tense times for both sides! Luckily had a safe tour of duty. Glad to get out of there when the time came.

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: I was drafted in 72 and sent to Fort Polk for basic. After basic I was fortunate enough to be sent to Fort Gordon, Georgia for MP school. Both places were a real experience!

Upon finishing MP training I was sent to South Korea and assigned to Co A 728th MP Bn in ASCOM. What the new guys did not realize at the moment was that Co A was about to be moved to Taegu and ASCOM given to the ROKs. My first night at ASCOM I accompany a SSG to the scene of a "quick draw" accidental death involving
two young GI's.

A month later I find myself moving to Camp Carroll to be part of a new security squad assigned to the 260th.
Our job was to ride freight trains leaving Camp carroll Depot to mostly Pusan in the south. I rode a few trains but mostly did gate duty and line duty at Camp Carroll. The last few months of my tour I was a desk sergeant at the PMO. It was an amazing time!

Comments: Great site, thanks! I was an MP stationed at Camp Irwin in September 1979. I wasn't there long but got to go for my duece-n-half license and I did some town patrol with a Katusa at Camp Casey. I got a good deal of partying in and drank my share of Ginroe and Oscar. I also had just enough time to have a nice dog fur collar coat made for me. Unfortunately, On Oct. 11, 1979 I was detailed to clean the weapons in the arms room on the missile site we guarded. I asked my buddy to help with the job and I left to go to the latrine. When I got back to the arms room my buddy was holding two .45's pointed at me. He pulled the first trigger...click. Then he pulled the second trigger...KA-POW!!!! I got hit square in the chest! Long story short...Thanks to then LtCol. Albuss for saving my life at the 121st in Soeul. Does anyone know anything about this. The guy who shot me was named Lowry from California I think. I love to hear from anyone who might have been there.

City and State: SNELLVILLE GA

Unit: 1ST BATTALION 9TH INFANTRY

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: In late October or early November 1970 our patrol set up a night ambush on a small hill near GP Katy SW of the road to Panmunjom. It was a lightly wooded area offering a good view of open land towards N. Korea. We could clearly hear their propaganda speakers.

The NCO with us was a Sgt. Washington, who never stopped talking about all of his combat experience in Viet Nam. We decided to have some fun with him, so we set up some of our claymores behind some small trees at the base of the hill. We knew that some of the guys along the DMZ fence had stockpiled lots of tracers and planned a *mad minute" of shooting up the Z. Some of them had taken LSD. None of us had,and we were careful to have the back of the hill and some trees between us and the anticipated display.

When it got completely dark, we blew off several claymores and fired some rounds in the general direction of North Korea. The guys on the edge of the DMZ filled the air with m-60 machine gun fire and a few M-79 rounds for what seemed a whole lot more than a minute. The North Koreans turned off the propaganda and whatever lights they had on. It was a long eerie night after that. We were relieved that we weren't bombed and strafed.

We all agreed that what we had done was incredibly stupid and irresponsible. But it sure was fun. No one was punished.

About two months later I was the assistant patrol leader on an underbrush clearing detail a couple of hundred yards from the center of the DMZ. We were simply setting fires in a brushy and wooded area when the wind shifted and began blowing our now out of control fire into North Korea. We were told that we had burned up a couple of acres of N. Korea in addition to several acres of the DMZ. It was a minor international incident, I think. Then again, maybe that was the plan all along. I had less than 2 months left in the Army and was in no mood to ask questions.

I would love to hear from anyone who remembers either of these incidents.

How do you tell poeple about a place like that, or the bros you had there, when they havent got a clue?! They thought I was making it up. Havent slept a full night in peace since 1979! I sometimes wake up still hearing 4P1 firing over the billits into crab island, and can still hear the short rounds they dropped in my dreams too! I remember SFC Anderson from B CO, and SSG Lee Andrews, RIP Brothers! Also Chaplain, Capt Willoughby, and my buddy Keith, cook from the HHC Messhall! Anyone know where they are now? get back to me, and lets catch up. Keep up the FIre! I will be a Manchu Soldier, eternally!

Comments: I served in Korea in 1966-67 and have pictures of agent orange stored at Camp Kasey but pictures are in black and white, I did many nights of guard duty around these barrels and need more proof the barrels where agent orange, I remember the banding on barrels but my American Legion rep for my claim says we need more proof because of black and white pics dont show banding.

I have an active webpage devoted to helping other veterans who served in Korea in the 60s get info on claims.
