Comments: Was stationed in Camp Casey Korea Jan-Oct 1970. Was exposed to agent orange, have been searching for my records like morning reports, daily journals, operational reports, and nothing appears. Claim has been denied because they have indicated that AO was sprayed in Korea till June of 1969. This is not true but I dont have any proof. A buddy wrote me a letter stating that he was there too and that he also sprayed with his unit AO. He died about 6 months later of cancer. I also have been diagnosed and undergone surgery of prostate cancer. Need some help with pictures or letters of buddies stating about the spraying of AO in the DMZ zone and also in the surroundings of the Camp.

Comments: I was stationed in Kunson Korea Feb. 1968. I was with the 336 TFS that left Semour Johnson AFB in 24hrs. to fly to Kunson during the Pueblo incident. On a fam. tour of the flightline and hangers, we were told to look up at the roof beams in one of the hangers. We were told the safety wire we saw hanging from those beams were from the hanging of the maintanence men after the pilots took off and refused to fly ground support.I can't remember if our tour was by an ROK officer or one of ours. But it was from someone that was stationed there not TDY like us. I never had reason to doubt the story. Could never think of why else all that wire would have been hanging down like it was. Nor why we were being told that story if it weren't true. What was there to be gained?

Comments: Seasons in the Kingdom, a novel set in the village of Sinchon, 1973-74, tells the story of village life for the American GI...recent comments about the book:
"AbsoF...loutely, an outF...standing book, to use the vernacular military speak. The custom of putting four letter words between every syllable is a constant in the military, and one soon tunes it out, not noticing when you or others do it. The author Tim Norris, has written an astutely accurate historical narrative, including (as they say in movie reviews) adult language, adult situations, drugs, violence, brutality, racism, prostitution, sex, and in this village -- more sex. The story takes place in a real military camp ASCOM (Army Support Command), and a real Korean village, Sin-Chon, complete with American named clubs for pool, drink, and debauchery. The reader should not be fooled by the backdrop, language, or circumstance. This is a love story, the build-up is slow, and carefully constructed, designed to carefully veil the impending and often tenuous romance. Over all the story is an exploration of love, marriage, children, and life's dreams, as seen by a 20 something boy and girl. The life of a GI in Korea was far from a usual experience. Even the sex is different, as the author humorously contrasts prostitution in America, with love making Korean style."

We preformed our patrols along the DMZ and Made repairs to the lighting system on the fence when the wires would get shot out at night, which was a very uneasy feeling being up on that fence in total darkness making splices, trying to get the lights back on fast, hoping that zips didn't shoot you. anyway we were stationed there at young until the pull out that packed us all to Camp Hovey, and the south korean soldiers took over the DMZ. I never did get my Imjin Scout certificate. Does anyone know what I can do to receive this award? please email me. Thanks Jerry

DMZ 1970 TO 1979
COLD WAR PTSD EXPOSED

Comments: Today I was informed that those who served in the
1/32nd Inf must proof that they were in danger or
witnessed dangerous events while stationed in the DMZ
during the 70s.

Agent Orange presumption has been extended to 1975 even
though science dictates it should be ten years. So we
that were exposed from 1976 - 1980 are out of luck.

In the meantime, I hope you were able to hear the Cold
War Radio Program on Wednesday. If not, go to
http://www.radiosandysprings.com/podcasts/PTSDExposedAu
g25.2010.mp3 and you will here from a 17 year old
private talk about how it was on the DMZ in the 70s.

Comments: I recently started getting my papers together as I am now alone, and after all these years, found that my middle name was wrong as well as the length of time I was with the Cav. On April 29th,2010, I went to a state vet rep to see if it could be corrected. He said sure and added; "did you put in your claim for agent orange exposure." I explained, although scheduled to go to Nam I was literally taken off the bus at Fort Knox (I just completed training as a armor reconnaissance specialist 11d) as a secondary MOS. A thru G were going to Viet Nam. However, once taken off the bus, I was taken to the orderly room and the old man ask me why I had not told him I had a brother in Viet Nam? I was unaware I did. As it turned out, My brother was with a Artillary Unit of the N.H. National Guard and had was in Korea. The family had not yet told me. So I was held over for a few days and sent to Korea. Once there I was assigned to Second Division and then to Hq Hq Troop 4/7th Cav., at Camp MacKenzie. They were surprised to see a Graves Registration Specialist and joked, "do you know something we don't" That was a Ltc Charles Belt, as I remember. Then the SMG took me aside and told me it would take a few weeks to straighten out the error. A chaplain came in complaining he had still not gotten a driver. I was asked did I have any problem with religious people? I stated no, I worked closely with clergy in the funeral profession back home. Thus I became the Chaplains driver and assistant and remained so all the time in Korea. July 69-71. I have strayed somewhat. A senior moment. In any event, that day in April, I discovered our unit, was high on their list as possibly being exposed to agent orange. Needless to say it was confussing finding out this after all these years. And understanding better many of my medical problems over the years somewhat better. Iam looking for anyone who remembers me from that period of 1969 thru august 1971. I have lost track of people over the years, and had reentered the army in 1974 thru 1980. because the 214 was in error, I need help validating I was there in 1969. I imagine, I will be long gone by the time they make a finding, but it is worth the try as long as my health holds out.
Garry Owen to all.

Comments: Email sent to David Apperson from SMA#9 Richard Kidd

Specialist David Apperson, USA, Veteran

David,
I can confirm that during the period of May 1977 and
February 1978, B Company, 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry,
Third Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division did participate in
the following live ammunition combat missions.

Thunderbolt Mission ~ reaction force

DMZ duty on Guard Posts Collier and Ouellette
conducting guard duty, observation post duty, and also
conducting combat patrols.

Special Munitions Security Mission

All of these missions are actual live ammunition
security combat missions.

These missions are held in all types of weather from
extremely heat to sub zero weather. And that you were a
member of the Company during these missions and were a
participant.

Finally, I can certainly validate (even though the
statement presented by a former Battalion Commander at
the time in question and ultimately retiring as a Major
General) needs no validation, the information provided
in his statement.

I assumed the duties of First Sergeant B Co, 1/32
Infantry in May 1977 and departed in Feb 1978 and I
ultimately retired as the Ninth Sergeant Major of the
Army, having served with Chief of Staff, Army General
Gordon R. Sullivan and Secretaries of the Army, Michael
P.W. Stone and Togo West in July 1995
