THE DEMARCATION LINE

Comments: Hello;
I enjoyed your writing of the DMZ and would like to add more history or information.
I was stationed there 1975 thru 1977 as a member of the 44th Combat Engineer's. We, along with the 802nd were responsible for the demarcation line between the buildings running North and South in the Panmunjom JSA area. It was myself and two other soldiers from my section selected to pour the concrete strip between the buildings where the meetings are held. This is probably the most important thing I have ever did in the Military. This demarcation line, a narrow strip of concrete between the meeting buildings is still there today in the JSA area. The North Koreans were not happy about this work being done so tensions were very high.
I was also there, as support to the unit, I think was the 802 combat engineer's, not far away from the tree incident, although I was not directly involved with the incident itself. The rest of my time was spent south, in Camp Casey, Camp Red Cloud and my home town of Camp Indian.

I just thought I should share this information as it is a crucial land marker today.

Comments: My husband was stationed at the 43rd Surg Hospital in Korea in 1974, I came over and stayed a few months with him, we lived in Uijongbu. PFC F. Johnson and his wife were there at that time as well. There was a man by the name of Lewis in his battalion that didn't make it home. Cisco and Norman are some of the names that I can remember. There was another married couple, I think the wife's name was Angela. Frank's wife's name was Cynthia.

Comments: I was adopted at the age of 5 along with my
biological sister in 1976. I have recently re-connected with birth family. Unfortunately, my birth mother and birth father are deceased.
The birth family has no pictures of them or myself.

I have learned that we lived in Kosan-dong Village right next to Camp Stanley. In fact, I used to play next to the fence dividing the
village from the base. I am writing to see if any soldiers might have taken pictures of the people and/or children in Kosan-dong Village while stationed at the base during 1971-1976. And maybe by some chance, it would be pictures of myself and/or birth parents. I am told we spent alot of time by a large rock next to
the fence and a playground-that is still there.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kindly,
Kathy Sacco

Comments: Greetings to fellow vets. In that short 14 months I moved around a lot. I started out at Camp Matta (Last Chance Saloon in Shang pa-ri), went to Camp Casey(TDC)but we ex-7th ID guys hung-out at Rosa's Canteena, an old 7th ID hangout in Toko-ri, just outside Camp Hovey where we occasionaly fought with 2nd ID jokers who didn't like our 7th ID patch. We still wore uniforms off-post then. Well, I ended-up at Camp Rice with C Troop, 7th Cav (Yongi-go, I think it was)before contracting hepatitis and spending a short stint at 121. I spent a second tour (around 26 months)with the 142nd MP Co, 8th Army in Yongsan, 74-76. I was there for the assasination of the First Lady and the Tree Incident. We thought all hell was going to break loose. We're all a little older now and (hopefully) wiser - I had a blast despite some of the hardships we endured. I recall freezing and no hot water the most. The DMZ sure was a spooky place. My father was a Army Korean War Vet with the 24th ID. He later joined the Marines and spent three tours in Nam. He died a few years ago of Agent Orange related cancer. Well, warm regards from Kansas and God Bless you all!

Keywords: 1970 - 1971
Turned Camp Matta over to ROK Army. 3rd/32nd Inf moved to Camp Casey.There was a ceremony wherein remainder of 7th Inf Div awarded Korean PCU (Singman Rhee), 7th ID combat patch, combat chevrons and 7th ID Bayonet Badge. Colors sent back to U.S. and 3rd/32nd becomes 1st/32nd (Bucaneer Bn)under 2nd ID.Most 1st/32nd farmed out to 1st/72nd,1st/73rd and 7th Cav, where I went. We really were the tail-end of the 2nd Korean War. Wow! Never really thought much about that until now. I was part of an historic event.

Did some TDY with the 214th MP. May have been in contact with AO while in areas between Casey and the DMZ. As a result of this, I have placed my name on the VA Agent Orange register. If you think you may have been in contact with AO, get your name on the register. Always looking for old buddys.

Comments: Loved the ville's, To-ko-Ri and T.D.C.. Still despise the Commies.Have my piece of the"tree'' from the "ax murders". Like to talk or e-mail w/ other "Tree Men" from any unit or branch of service., as the V.A. Hospitals will not form a "rap session" for us as they did for Nam and previous combat vets. and yes I have asked to be hooked up w/ other O. P. B . vets that are seeing Mental Health at V.A. and for some odd reason V. A. will not get us together. Any ideas?why. I have my own assumption. I am not seeking help for a claim as I am already 100% S/C. Just a history buff wanting to know what other units were doing during those trying days and months afterwards. Bullshitters keep it in the bars, pleeze.
