City and State:

Unit: 4/7TH CAV

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Comments: HHT 4/7th Cav Medic, spent time on radar site 11 and assigned to Delta Troop as Recon Medic. Was supposed to go to D Co., 2nd Med, but some wise guy at division saw I came from the 101st as a recon medic and had just got back from Jungle School in Panama so he "diverted" me to the cav....boy was I glad he did. Was at Camp Stanton Aid Station in 1979. Looking for Mark Luthner, OH58 pilot. I was his sand bag jockey as his bird was furthest across the airfield and he needed someone to carry a sand bag for the CP seat to balance the aircraft. I remember he was dating the daughter of the Chief of Police at Inchon and reupped to get reassigned at Pusan airbase so he could marry her. He got lots of grief for dating her because she did not have engagement papers, or a VD card that were required by law(despite being the respectable girl she was). I don't know what strings were pulled, but he kept dating her with her father's approval. Also those that attended Korean Marine Ranger School with me Sept-Oct 1978 on the south side of the mountain that radar site eleven was on. Remember goose walking up hill by the bridge to the island that had Han and Yi dynasty historic site? Slide for life and rappeling on HEMP ROPE!!!! They smelled like pot every time you got off the rope. How about yummy fish heads and rice for dinner after we beat the instructors at soccer? Also remember mountain patrols to retrieve propaganda leaflets that were dropped by NK's. They were funny: had picture of NK president helping plant rice in rice patties with big kimchi eating grins on their faces. They were english on one side and Korean on the other, but pretty much told us to come to the north and live like kings in life of luxury. We laughed real good about that one and debated who would have the kingdom with the biggest pooh filled rice patty. Also remember radar site 11. I was there as a medic from late October 78 until December 78. Missed my opportunity to burn the cr*p because we just had flush toilets installed. Learned how to run GSR though...great group of guys there. I had to go test the water deliveries and the samples would freeze while I waited for results before it was pumped into our water tank. I had to stay there with my 45 and guard the water while the driver I did not know from Adam pumped the water into our tanks. They told me he sometimes would get our water from "unapproved" sources so it had to be tested. I had to crawl up on the truck and unlock the tank to get the sample. If it was low I had to add chlorine and wait 30 minutes in the cold. How we never got poisoned with all the infiltrators that came across was beyond me. Man that was some cold times. I remember the site was dug down into front of mountain facing Han River Estuary. Our helecopter LZ was just behind us higher up and all of it was exposed to NK firezone. We had one APC that we were supposed to "escape" in if we were attacked but there was about 150 yards of open ground to the east and the west that we would have to traverse -we were sitting ducks. We pretty well decided that the quickest way out was to run over the top of the mountain on foot and down the other side. If course it was 20 minutes by chopper and 4 hours by jeep to get out so I don't know where we would have went as we were on a penninsula! Also remember boat target that came down creek from the north and stopped on the back side of the little island in the middle of the river. The Korean Marine Rangers fired it up real good and it went back up stream and disappeared from our scope. When we tried to get an after action report, they told us it was a log...yeah, one that goes up stream! The next morning a ROK Marine Ranger Officer told me to check two dead NK frogmen's bodies to make sure they were dead. These guys were so dead and so full of bullet holes you if you poured water down their throats it would have run out on the ground. He told me if I told anyone he would beat me. (All those guys were highly ranked black belts and loved beating people up)I had seen him beat one of his troops for an hour in sub zero weather for taking a piece of bread from our cook. Also the night we heard the machinery sound and got a target to the northwest every night. Later they found it was another tunnel being started. Finally, YongJuGol, sin city with 756 registered prostitutes that SFC ????, the 82nd Airborne 11B sergeant got assigned to monitor as the Case Contact NCO. He hated not being in the 82nd Airborne, he hated Korea, and he hated prostitutes, and was tough as nails chasing girls down the alleys that had been identified as a contact by a positive VD test. As a medic I had to go with him and he was quite funny to watch as he would chase gils through the alleys. He shut down the New Seoul Club one night because the Mamason tried to bribe him. The Niagra Club was infested with VD. He reduced the VD caes from about 60 a month to about 12 so he did his job! I saw him 5 years later at Fort Bragg where he was a CSM of a parachute infantry regement and had 2 kids, a girl named Canopy and a boy named Rip Cord!!!! HARD CORE!!!! Now that I am older I hope to get back to visit soon as I am being considered for a job teaching in Seoul. If so, I hope to take my family to see some of the places I have told them about. Take care everyone.

Any Manchus out there that were dug in to the left flank of the barrage and remember PVT Brown being Medivaced? Additionally, during the summer 74' casualties, as I recall from Co. A, 1/9 INF, from friendly mortar fire and in September 74' Co. B, 1/9 INF called out to defend a radar site located near the west coast in the vacinity of the DMZ were our unit repelled an enemy force. Two of our soldiers were slighty wounded. Hope to hear from old Manchus. God's speed and best regards to all.

Comments: I have spent many years trying to locate this dear old friend. I finally got an email from a young man that was going to help me locate Huh, but my computer crashed and lost his email. I would greatly appreciate it if you see this message to get in touch with me again. I think Huh had just left Inchon, but someone knew where he is now living. Please write again and let me know if you have had any more luck. I am grateful for this website and the opportunity it gives friends and family to learn more of the history of loved ones. Thank you very much!

Comments: I was with D Company, 4th Maint Bn that was at Cp Stanley, but was part of the Forward Det at Cp St Barbara. Would sure like to hear from any of the guys. As most units during that time frame, we worked our butts off during the week, but oh how we partied on the Weekends. We were there to support I Corps Artillery, and spent a lot of time with the 76th and 12th Artillery guys.

I spent 22 years in, and if DA knew how much we partied, they would take my Retirement pay back :)

If any of you guys see this, check out the web page I am making about Cp St Barbara.

THE DEMARCATION LINE

Unit: 44TH COMBAT ENGINEER'S

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN - KOREA

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.

Phillip;
US Army Retired
