ANYONE ELSE HEARD OR READ THAT THE ACTIONS ON NOVEMBER 22 - 23, 1984 AT THE Z ARE NOW COUNTED AS A COMBAT ACTION??? I HEARD AT THE VA HOSPITAL LAST WEEK THAT INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED IN THE REPELLING OF THOSE NORTH KOREANS BACK ACCROSS THE LINE WERE BEING GIVEN MEDALS AND COMBAT PATCHES. SAID IT WAS IN THE LATEST EDITION OF AR-670-1. I DID NOT SEE IT IN THERE. OH YEA ! THERE IS NOW A TRAINERS BADGE FOR ALL YOU GUYS WHO TAUGHT AT ANNCO ACADEMY.

Comments: 1984 - 1985. 2nd I.D. During a winged-chariot run to our combat holes my squad was overtaken by an early morning cloudlike fog, not far from the Z. I thought that somehow tear gas had drifted on the wind to us but I was not taking any chances and ordered MOPP 4. Four of us where flown to the Battalion AID station and then to the Division Medical Hospital which so happened to be in the field. The staff of medical professionals treated us like we had in-dead been gassed but by what they would not say. They all were in MOPP 4 upon our arrival. I had just recently been to the 25th I.D. NBC Sergeants Course and over heard some key words. Our old uniforms were kept, along with boots, gear and all of the NBC suits. We got some shots that never appeared in our shot records and the care and decon at Division Med never showed up in our medical records. We then had to fly to our Battalion TOC individually and were grilled; (sorry) debriefed by our leadership teams for hours about what did and did not happen to us. We were fed cold chow as always and sent back to Camp. All day, I had wanted to know about my other squad members and was told that they were all fine. Back at the super-huch they were all in bed with some pretty red faces and those noses would not stop running. I got them up and to Medical which treated them for colds. I told all of them to put this day into the back of their minds just incase. Well that just incase day has found me. At 68 inches and 185 pounds I fight four my life every day. Years ago I was diagnosed with TYPE 2 DIEABETES, my KIDNEY'S are failing, have lost my right EYE, have cognitive difficulties and numerous other problems. I made copies of everything in my medical records yet over several moves since retirement had misplaced them. So years ago I requested copies of my medical records from the records keepers. Well they told me that the VA in Waco had them and Waco VA admits to having them still but I can not get copies of the records until my final claim in done. Even though I need them to search for evidence to support my claim. We all know the drill. I started tracing my steps. Way back, pulled all the right and wrong cards. Your federal elected officials are useless. Local fella's, now you can look them in the eye. Use all your service organizations. Even if you are not a member. DAV, VFW, the Legions and hundreds of Associations. DENIALS First I was told that I was never gassed. Then the North Korean military never used chemical agents near the Z. Then was informed that there was no AGENT ORANGE in Korea. NEVER treated for this exposure, right. Closed case..... Wrong answer. Remember that little chopper air evac I and my guys took to the Battalion Aid station. It was in the logs that we were there and the Battalion Commander ordered the medic to send us to Division Medical. You could hear a pin drop at my appeals hearing, but when you could go. GOT MINE. Just do not give up!

Comments: I need information about a private, don't remember his name, who shoot himself while we were living in Tent City near the DMZ. I blocked out the entire incident, and very hard to remember many things, just that from the time I enter country and the unit, he was on permanent restricted duty for going over commanders head because they didn't not approve him to get married to a Korean girl. He had the brightest personality and smile ever. He was either Hawaiian or Spanish decent. He always told me that he will not let the break him. I was transferred to another camp, a mechanized infantry unit that had a motto right at the entrance THE MOST FORWARD DEPLOYED MECHANIZED INFANTRY UNIT IN KOREA. Please assist me.

2ID DMZ VETS RETURNING TO KOREA

Unit: 1-38 INF AND 2-503 INF

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: July 1, 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the 2IDs return to Korea after the cease fire in the Korean War. The 2ID played a major role in the Korean War and it was appropriate that the Division return to continue to play a major role in guarding Freedoms Frontier.
On that day in July, the 1st Cavalry Division was reflagged as the 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Howze which was Division HQ at the time. The 2nd Indianhead Division Association is organizing a return trip for 2IDA members that were present at the reflagging and for other DMZ veterans that would like to go. We anticipate a group of about 25-30 and are still working out the details. We are working on the eligibility for participation. We are beginning a major fundraising effort to help offset the cost of the trip for the returning veterans and need to know the level of interest in this trip. The tentative plan is to depart Los Angeles about June 26 or 27, 2015 to return about July 3. You will need a current passport. If you are interested, please let us know at 2ida.mail@charter.net. Your e-mail is not a commitment, but merely an expression of interest. The leadership of the active 2ID has generously agreed to help with planning the celebration events and perhaps some tours of the area. The 2ID Commanding General and Command Sergeant Major are already at work This can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please let us know now so we can continue our planning.

National President, 2IDA

I've posted a couple of times on here over the years, just trying to connect with some of the crew, no matter what year or years you were there because as all who served in any part of South Korea know, the connection to our particular unit/location has not so much to do with any particular time frame but more so with the fact that we have that special something in common that only those of us who were there can understand.

Comments: I was there and ran more than my share of ambushes.
It was from 81 to 82.
I was the point man because we had to have a E5 walk point at that time.
I wore the old PVS 5 night vision goggles. I remember laying in nasty rice paddy water on ambush and getting bit by rice patty rats. At that time we were not allowed to engage unless fired on first. We had to account for every round we took out with us and turn them back in when we got back. We always had to zero our weapons and starlit scopes before we went out on ambush so we would swipe all the extra ammo we could get and take it out with us in extra mags we could pop a shot are two back at them with out getting in trouble when we got back.
The SOP was for us to shoot off a parachute flare if we were shot at before we could return fire.
Well the ones making the rules did not have there ass out there so we did not use no flares we used FMJ to say hello. The whole squad stuck together and help fast if we were questioned in the rear. It did not take long before the North Koreans left us the hell alone.
I remember one time were I was leading us of to set up an ambush and I could hear some solders walking towards us. I gave the hand signal and my guys all got down on there bellies I crawled up thur some bushes and counted four of them walking by so close I could have took there little sandals off. I have a lot of the symptoms of agent orange myself and have been denied vet benefits. I wish someone would help us get them.

Comments: Was stationed at F Co 702nd Maint Bn Camp Casey worked in the engineer third shop first half of tour, then the reminder of tour as battalion reenlistment clerk. I often traveled up to other companies stationed near the DMZ to do paperwork. I can recall having some GI problem while stationed there,thought it was the lifestyle. I started having full blown Crohn's disease in 1992. Two years doctors found a gold ball size B Cell lymphoma in my guts. I also can remember being sprayed at Ft Dix with insectide by plane on the parade grounds. I filed for benefits 3 years ago and was denied. My father had three tours in Korea, during the war, in the early 60's and during the Pubelo crisis, who knows what exactly he died of or passed on to his kids.

Comments: I was on the DMZ and did patrols 1981 to 1982. I and some others from my unit were sent to a ROK Army Special Forces Training Camp by Pusan. This camp was in the mountains. We were trained on Survival skills.

I am trying to find out if any one was there?

If they remember the name of the camp and the training program?

Did you get the certificate?

When I look it up on Google search, nothing. I think this was a fooive deal and must have been temporary. Other wise there would be more information on it.

I really enjoyed it.

REGAN LIED AND MADE US WARRIOR HIDE

Comments: Found some old pics of Regan on GP Oulette. I remember fellow soldiers who were up there before me, 84/85 was my time, say Regan made them hide, and Regan told the media there were no troops north of the Imjin.

I was there when the entire GP came down with what I think today was KHF. The GP was quarantined, and my stay up there lasted 30 straight days. If any one up there around mid June to mid July contact please contact me, I was the medic up there working working Chief Crossman back at Warrior base to get those soldiers well.

Issues yes we all them, coupled with the head games the nightly explosions from NK tunneling, the loud speakers, the random gun fire, our restrictive rules if engagement, we diffenently had a big head screw going on, and not be even recognized until 2005 with a campaign ribbon should be enough to push anyone of us over the top.

My fellow DMZ vets, the most professional soldiers on earth, go get what you deserve, what your country has denied you of. Remember the Army Achievement should have been an ArCom IF we were in a war zone.

We have been robbed of benefits, and we should not stand for it. We need to band together to get what we deserve.

As a 91B I patrolled with the most professional well trained 11Bs any 91B could ask for. Remember we have a 45, but I always knew we had each others back.

Comments: I was in A Co 1/9 IN as part of a COHORT unit that started in Ft. Knox for basic training, AIT and stationed in Fort Ord, CA and ended up in Camp Liberty Bell, Korea in 1984. I was lucky to stay with the same guys all 3 years and because of that we truely became brothers. I was in 3rd plt with SFC White as a platoon sgt, SSG Hansen as a Squad leader and one of my buddies CPL Dan Ryan as my team leader. I was a lost sole in those days , but by the end of the 3 years I became a man. The Soldiers and leaders thought me how to grow up, work as a team , and most of all how to take care of myself. I had good memories training, playing and crying with the Soldiers from A CO. I had a couple of best friends I could always lean on such as Lonnie Williams and Kurt Goodpastor. I had no fears to go on patrols on the DMZ because 3rd PLT was tight and we looked after each other so much. When we got on that truck on them cold nights to patrol and do a ambush, I looked over to my right and left and knew I was going to be safe even though some nights it was so dark you couldn't see anyone in the truck with you one you entered the DMZ. In the daytime doing the patrols was scary sometimes and not because of the North Koreans, but the quails that where hiding in the tall weeds, you see because it was so quite when we did our patrols the quail would wait until we got right up on them to fly away and if we already weren't nervous enough. I enjoyed at the end of the day A CO had its very own club that we could all go up to and enjoy the stories of the day. When I was in Camp Liberty Bell I was only 22 years old and only had 3 years in the Army and little did I know I would stay in the military for 25 more years.

I still work with the military today , but as a civilian in Fort Carson, CO and what is so funny is in the Brigade I work for we just got a new unit assigned to us and it is 4-9 INF Manchu. It seems fitting that where I started is where I will end my military service.

Thank you to all of the Soldiers that allowed me to grow when I was just a boy.

Comments: I was a DMZ MP at least thats what the North Koreans thought. I have always said that the DMZ is where I grew up. Stands Alone... I was there May 1990-September 1991. I remember Crossing Freedom Bridge and seeing the explosives that were there in order to Blow the Bridge in Case the North Koreans came across. We were actually just a speed bump for them. Our life expensity was a matter of a few minutes. I could look out my window from the Super Hooch and see North Korea and Propaganda Village and the smell of the rice patties will never leave my mind. I reenlisted on guard post Oulette with my supply clerk and Katusa holding the American Flag and the North Korean flag was not far in the distance. I miss those days. Everytime I went down south I was always ready to get back to Camp Greaves. The farthest I went South was to Camp Casey to get supplies except for that wonderful day when I flew back to the 101st Airborne where I had left From. I still have my camo DMZ arm band signed by all the members of the unit and my Brother Hood coin. that was really an experience. I ended up serving 26 years in defense of our great nation. I will always remember the Mine fields and the Tunnels and running up Curahee Mountain. STANDS ALONE. God Speed to all that have served on the Z.

Comments: Our newest Member Spoon, saw what he thaught was a 1 man sized submarine during an ambush on the lake. We were facing G.P. Collier with Oulette at our backs. Collier was bouncing an infra-red beam to help me and my pvs6 see what he was talking about. I personally never caught a glimpse of Nessie. Neither did number 2 sniper Brooks We sat another Hour extra( usually only 2 hrs or so) and had nothing more to report.... Probably was a sub., as they were screwing with us royal. We were refering to the route from oulette along the river bed south behind Collier and back into the North as Infiltrator alley. Anyone remember the Pagoda on the left side of the horse shoed area we reconned? I used to take my 110 kodak in next to my mags. and took way too many INSIDE dmz photos! Still afraid to show those publically!!!=) Jimmy Hensley Alpha Company 2nd squad 2nd platoon Manchus Keep Up the Fire, so we can find each other and get us fixed!

Comments: I got to the R.O.K. in Jan 1983. I was given the oportunity to be the driver for the Command sgt major of 2nd I.D. Turned it down...... I know wtf was I thinking... I was thinking that I was an Infantryman and a damn good shot with the 16. I was also a dragon gunner ( I won the division gold medal with that at the Indian Head Olympics July 19830 tHE fIRST SET OF RECON/pATROLS STARTED IN fEB 1983 WITH sGT. bLAND AS MY lEADER, hE GAVE ME THE SCOPE AND A PRETTY NICE WRITE UP BEFORE HE LEFT. Then came Bridge patrol... 30 days of saluting generals and checking ID. cards. July was the end of the Armistance of war with North Korea. They started messing with us after that. They Infiltrated the south, they tried to kill the President of the ROK in Rangoon. We went on yellow alert on both those occasions. another weirdly wild story goes like this. I was on a 12 hour pass to yongi-gul and when catching the bus north ,we were sent back to town. This NEVER happens Well A lonley communications private with a dmz pass tried to go north because he could not see his girl. Pfc. White all over again...but he was stopped at the south gate to freedom bridge where the scouts eventualy dealt with him. Next ( for me) mentally came my final, Yes I did 2 sets of missions!!! (timing) During the recon /ambus phase ,on 1 night there was an incursion of Infiltrators, and they were caught. First sgt Holman asked me if I was ready as I was pretty much the best shot . problem was it was 3 am and I was prepping for recon. Fsg. Holman took a squad of us up to gp. Collier. During the incursion the ambushing squad asked to fire Illum. rounds and 203 grenades. they engaged the infiltrators. I happened to be watching through the Navy Sights and saw what I think was a human flipping upwards. Not much more happened after and we waited for daylight. As soon as possible we took off for that spot and looked for evidence, throwing a grapple hook when ever Fsg. thought needed. We found nothing but blood and explosion marks with drag marks the size of bodies ,towards the lake. Fsg Holman sen everyone back except for me and Brooks,I think. We followed them marks to a hole in the Ice and went back to Gp.Collier. That still wakes me up sweatin' a little. well that is a short version of my year I have alot of photo's as I got 3 of those albums. I have my Dmz. M.P. armband and an Imjim scout medal I also bought another buckle so I could throw mine in the river when I left south on the bus. P.S. I was interviewed by s-2 for 2 hours after and still can find no mention of this. Pfc. R. Aultman ,Spc.4 Brooks, Aguillar, Johnny, all of us were told not to talk by s-2 and never did pubicaly till today. Any Help confiming would be a huge help to me, as sometime I think it was all a dream. Pfc. Jim Hensley Keep Up the Fire,and who else but us cocky fools got to wear that buckle, I still do
