Comments: The best years of my Army career where with the Broken Heart Battalion 78-81. Aco Motor Pool, DSU, Four PaPa One and the with the Rock Quarry crew. I miss all the Crew and friendships made at Cp Mercer (Kimpo)and Cp Nimble (TDC)and throughout the Battalion.
We accomplished alot, always mission first. To bad the Cp. Mercer Mess Hall burnt. I really missed the cinnamin rolls baked fresh every morning. I remember waking up to the pleasent smell of cinnamin rolls in T-9 barracks and then the unpleasant morning smell of the rice patties and poultry industries surrounding Camp Mercer. Morning PT runs where always ripe with odors I can't forget. Most of us spent evenings in the Tear Drop Enlisted/Officer's Club. Only two kinds of USA beers to drink, damn good fried chicken at the club too, remember?
Cp Mercer and Cp.Nimble Mess Halls had the best Army chow ever and plenty. Note: It wasn't the chow that kept me in the 44th, Korea's still the Army's best kept secret.

Comments: David, I e-mailed you through this website but I don't believe you received it (I received an automatic response from my sent e-mail regarding spam filtering). I'll rewrite my message here: Please tell me what you can about 1/15 FA's deployment during Operation Paul Bunyan; the unit does not appear on Wayne Kirkbride's list of deployed units in his book "A Story of the DMZ Axe Murders" (although 1/38 FA does). I was in 1/15 FA Headquarters Battery during 1973 and we were always up on the DMZ; I have always been curious about my unit's actions during Paul Bunyan; I know it had to be involved somehow--my guess is it was deployed further east on the DMZ to defend against a North Korean attack away from Panmunjom. Please give me as much detail as possible; you can respond to my home e-mail or respond on this website; I'm looking forward to finally getting an answer to my looming question; thanks.

Comments: I was the company clerk of Co A, 802 Engr Bn (Const) at Camp Humphreys for a period of about 13 months. I surfed in and looked over some of the comments on this website and recognize some of you that I served with. I now live back in my homeland of Wisconsin where I grew up at.
I remember the drinking contests and all of the craziness that went on back then. I didn't participate in any of the contests but I sure remember them as the company virtually shut down for that time period. The KATUSA's entered a Cpl Moon to compete with the G.I.'s and that was pure hilarious entertainment as he tried in vain to keep pace with the Americans but just couldn't hold on. He was in the hospital for 6 days as I remember the KATUSA 1SGT ranting and raving on how 'bad he performed' at the contest.
Does anyone remember the snowfall in the winter of 1972 when a group of people hid amongst the barracks on the hill overlooking the mess hall and peppered people entering and leaving the mess hall with snowballs? One person in the group of revelers hit the CSM in the face with an iceball briefly knocking him out and a major sweep by the MP's put an end to that fun. Nobody got charged but all were scared, especially the rock quarry platoon who was in the midst of it all.
We hada 1SGT by the name of MSG George Moore Jr., and he was a real strickler for rules. One night, the CQ got a message to deliver to him but his CQ runner was at the bowling alley getting drunk and the CQ just happened to see me walking by the orderly room. He asked me if I would deliver the message to 1SGT Moore and I said I would. I knocked on his hootch door and I thought, I thought he said 'enter'. So I did. He was lying on the bed face - up naked with a girl from the barber shop on top of him and he really got P.O.'d when I came in. I promised that I would tell nobody and I have not until right now. I still love ya, 1SGT Moore!
Everybody take care and have a great new years! Jerry!

Comments: Was assigned to A BTRY 1-44 ADA (Kwang-Duk) when the President was shot, worked in the motor pool. Was re-assigned to B 1/2 ADA (Camp Memphis) after the ROK took over 1-44.

Looking for information where Kwang-Duk and Camp Memhis were located and if they still exist. Looking for Haggenmiller, Mark Horney and the "Hug a root Gang" and anyone that served in these areas. It was hard duty but was one of the best tours in my military career.....

Comments: Wierd then the Scouts did screening missions all day the next day. I can remember the sky being folled with Aircraft and all kinds of Artillery with in view on the other side of the Imjin.

Keywords: Found your site interesting. I remember the night before the operation was to start th ROK special Forces were staying in out Gym at greaves and shot the hell out of the place getting fired up. The ROK GP's were going crazy. An SSG from out Unit was told by the Bn commander
to put togeather a patrol to take out that night to observe and listen to sounds. His name was SSG Mahn who was the Scout Platoon Sgt. The commander didn't want him to take out anyone that might start a war. So I can remember him taking out our Motor Sgt name Sgt Gilman who was a Ex Green beret in Viet Nam a SSG Ratliff who was the commo Guy a SSG Novak another SF guy and a few other Sgts and myself who became the RTO. We stayed in the DMZ 7our hours and you could hear th enemy moving Tanks and all sorts of things in. We went up on the west side of the road and observed the bunkers being filled by North Koreans through the starlights. I can remeber when we came out we debriefed by Brigade for two hours.
