Comments: Hello My name is Tim Davis I'm originally from Milwaukee WI but recently married an English Woman and am living with her in England. I was with the U.S. Army and stationed at Camp Casey 122 Signal Bn for the whole year of 1984, I forgot which company it was, I think it was Bravo. That year MRE's and Hum-vees were fist introduced and I believe that was the first year of the Blackhawk helicopters as well. If anyone remembers me... Our Squad leader was Sgt. Streeter and you all gave me the nick name of buda. I had also been the only one in our company to enter a photo contest at the recreation center and was always bringing my Minolta X-700 camera out to the field hoping slicky-boy wouldn't steal our stuff. I was a 31-mike back then and we'd give adjima our mre for bottle of soda and two cooked packs of raman noodles out in the field. I still have my one or both of my laminated off-base passes, the orange striped day pass and the brown striped overnight pass. Everyone hated it there but I loved it. There was one beautiful scene I wish I had gotten a picture of and that was in the winter with snow on the mountains on either side of the barracks and then the sun coming through over the mountain behind motorpool lighing up all the snow flakes, that would've been a very cool shot. I really miss it, even some of the hip-hop music of the day as well. I'll be back in America for a few weeks (June-24th thru July-9th) No Taco Bells here in England(grin)..

City and State: HARRISBURG PA

Unit: D TROOP 4/7 CAV

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Looking for others who served at Camp Stanton during the 1981-1982 time period. Who else recalls the AH-1G shot down in June/July 1981? Apparently the pilot and crew chief were "indulging" in illicit substances and strayed into the buffer zone. I was pretty new in country when this occurred so things are a little fuzzy regarding facts and details. I just know they were both out of country the next day, and heading back to the states.

Right around the same time, the shooting at Camp Casey's M16 range took place involving 2 U.S. soldiers shooting 4 or 5 other American fatally before finally being arrested by MP's.

I'll never forget the fire fight that took place on July 4, 1981. Apparently the NK forces decided to give us an exciting Independence Day! I remember listening to the ensuing exchange that took place before, during, and after loading and arming the Cobras on the Hot Pads so they could patrol just outside the Buffer Zone just in case ground support was needed. You had to love the alerts. Man it seemed like they took place at least weekly!

I was at Camp Stanton when the AH-1G Cobras were replaced in the Fall/Winter of 1981 and 1982 with the AH-1S birds. The transition from the G models is what prompted the move from Camp Stanton to Camp La Guardia. Apparently Camp Stanton being within mortar or artillery range made the brass in DC nervous.

I also won't forget the incident when I was flying front seat in an AH-1G when it returned to H112 on a precautionary. The way the engine kept losing flight RPM, I considered every conceivable way to duck my head between my knees just in case we landed hard. Something about the main rotor blade flexing and taking my head off at the shoulders caused some serious anxiety during the 10 minutes or so from the time the engine malfuction started at about 2000 feet several miles north of Camp Stanton until we made it safely back to H112.

Another interesting experience was during a night flight involving non-standard landings. Having flown these on a number of occasions just to get my flight hours in, I would occasionally fall asleep since other than the 2 pilots, I was usually the only other person in the back of the UH-1. Well this one night I awoke, disoriented and somewhat confused by what was taking place, I quickly realized we were skipping sideways down the runway. The anti-collision lights were acting like a timing light, and would capture the main rotor blade position in reference to the runway. I kid you not when I say there was only several inches between the end of the rotor blade and the runway during a couple of these skips. Assuming the rollover position, I could here the PIC screaming expletives at the younger pilot that he had the controls. Within seconds the aircraft was airborne, flying sideways until enough altitude was gained, at which point the PIC spun the front end around and safely recovered. This was the one time when the white knuckle and pucker factor were both experienced. This incident still gives me the goose bumps.

Anybody remember CW2 Priddy? An ex-Marine Cobra jockey, he took me up in an AH-1G one day. After we were out 15-20 minutes he mentioned to me that since he was the only pilot, knowing how to get a Cobra on the ground safely from the front seat was of paramount importance for my own survival. He spent about an hour working with me until I could descend to a very shaky and erratic hover at about 25-30 feet from the ground. Great guy! While we were out, we approached a ROK Hawk missile sight. After waving to the several ROK troops, he told to remove the gun sight unit from its stowed position, point the 7.62 MM gun at them and pull the trigger. At that particular moment I didn't appreciate his sense of humor. You can't imagine the look on the faces of the ROK soldiers as they hit the deck once the gun started to cycle. It didn't have any ammo going into it, but at the moment the weapon activated, the ROK soldiers didn't know that. He immediately backed down the mountain to avoid them getting our tail number and once we were clear, he just howled from the back seat.

Korea was definitely a dangerous yet exhilerating place to train. On another occasion while flying front seat in an AH-1G, with W1 George Graves, who was killed about 5 years ago in Germany during a training mission, we about ate the front end of an F14 or whatever type of fast mover was used in 1981. We were flying NOE around a mountain, when the fixed wing came out of nowhere from the opposite side of the same mountain. Good thing he pulled up, because at the speed he was moving, we wouldn't have had a chance.

Finally, who else was in country when Kim Il-Sung turned 70? For decades he promised he would drink tea in Seoul for his 70th birthday, and wouldn't you know it - he turned 70 in the Spring of 1982. The entire country was on full alert for several days it seems.

So where are guys like Steward Elder, Bobby Taylor, and so many others?

The only person I really stayed in touch with was my best friend Stacey Sargent. We served in Korea together and then at Fort Bragg. He was in the 5th SF Flight Detachment, while I was with D Co. 82nd CAB. Unfortunately Stacey passed away in 1995 from Hodgkins related cancer.

Our mission was not to assist forward of the Warrior Base but we did it anyways because we had better ambulances (Dodge cammo). Evacuated soldiers from both guard posts and participated with QRF for PMJ meetings. Stuck out the cold and heat @ tent city, I loved the mission. The best people I ever served with.

I was an 82 Charlie (Field Artillery Surveyor), but worked in HHB office as a 71 Lima (Administrative Specialist). I ran 10k road races (and always came in 1st or 2nd place) and I played on the HHB 2/17 FA baseball team. I had a hooch on the second floor just over the Boston Club, I worked out at the gym and ran from Camp Pelham to Munson (sp?) and back everyday.

My nick name was "Ricky P." or "P". If you remember me, I would be happy to hear from you. Thanks.

I'll never forget Young-Ah, "the mechanical Bull" from the mustang club, 2nd Inf Div on alert when pilot defected in Mig., road march up the stairway to heaven past the budest temple and statue of budah that my fellow soldiers sat on,deep fried hot dogs from the hot dog stand across from the rec center, buying deep fried chicken, shrimp and french fries(wrapped up in someones orders) at the chicken stand by the gate, thunder runs thru the ville waking the girls up, hanging with Patrick at his Yobo's hooch. Seems like yesterday.

What was the name of the company XO who picked my drunk past out butt up off the perade field christmas eve. I never thanked him. Guess I'll do it now. "Thanks"

Sgt Williams do you ever wonder if your self proclamed record still stands? If you are reading this you know what I am talking about?

Any of you guys remeber hill 496 when we ran that damn retrins site. Trading our MRE's with the ROC's that were eating fresh fish and rice.

So many memories. Good , Bad, happy, sad. I may have been 23 years old when i first went to korea but I grew up there. I learnd what it was to be an American and how good we have it here in the USA. Anyone stationed on or near the DMZ know what I am talking about.

Been so long, can't remember many names anymore, but have lots of memories of being a "mortar maggot" on the DMZ; Soju and kimchi 7-up in a canteen cup over at the "super hoochs"; 2 on/4 off at guard post Collier; ambushes and patrols on the D during Jan/Feb; serenaded by the propaganda all night in the freezing cold. Tough times then, fond memories now.

Comments: I was a turtle in 1986 having graduated from highschool in june by december I was assigned to HHC 1/9 Infantry/ 2ID/ ROK. Being from Oregon farm country I was not prepared for the cold -40degree weather I encountered. Being a young NBC soldier I was planning on going to a chemical company and learning my MOS. I soon learned that the Army didn't have a lot of us to go around. I know I wasn't the only E-1 Private to be placed in a nco slot while in korea but I took advantage of the experience. Iwrite today just to say thanks to all the soldiers I served with at Camp Greaves and Camp Liberty Bell. We were not all Infantry by training but we were in spirit and we were trained to patrol, and fight along side the 11b's. I remember the Manchu March, the EIB training and competition. Even though we were not allowed to earn the badge many of us non-infantry soldiers completed the course in record time. I remember picking up rocks off of the parade field so the Lt.Col could play soccer with the Katusa's. I remember providing extra security for the 1988 Olympic Games and the Bicycle Races that went in to North Korea. I remember the tunnels we found and the alerts when the border was breached. But most of all I remember the brotherhood, and the honor to not only be a Manchu but also to be a Currahee. Not too many soldiers can claim they were members of both units, even if it was peace time. Again to all who served thanks. and "Keep up the Fire" / "Stands Alone"
