Comments: CHECK OUT THE HISTORY CHANNELS WEBSITE, GO TO FORUMS, CLICK WAR, THEN GO TO KOREA! Send you stories and lets tell the real story. Keep up the fire!

Keywords: ATTENTION GENTLEMEN!
The history channels website is looking for Veterans stories. Look under forums, then click war, then go to Korea. The personal attacks are getting old, and we need our Brothers to finally speak up and tell the REAL STORIES of Korea, It has become painfully obvious that the American Public HAS NO IDEA, what is really going on. Join me on the site, and lets let the truth be seen. I am known as "Mission Magnet" on the site, and have also been sending the readers of these stories to this website as well. Hope to hear from all of you soon. KEEP UP THE FIRE!

Hickey, Harris and too many others to mention. I loved my time going up to Osan AB and partying most every weekend "down range".

LOOKING FOR 2ND ENGINEERS IN KOREA FROM 1967 TO 1970 - ANY COMPANY

City and State: ROCK SPRING GA

Unit: 2ND ENGINEER BATTALION, 2ND INFANTRY DIVISION

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Please contact me. I am looking for any and all former members of the 2nd Engineer Battalion from any Company who served in Korea at any time in 1967 thru 1969.

Several of your brothers are still fighting the effects of our time in Korea. We need photos, copies of Combat Pay orders, statements of duties of the 2nd Engineers who worked in and along the DMZ or who were in my Company, E Company (Float Bridge).

Right now I am working with several guys from 2nd Engineer Battalion who have multiple health issues as a direct result of exposure to Agent Orange. Yes guys, that stuff sprayed along the fence, around the guard towers and the Guard Posts and Out Posts we were building was the infamous Agent Orange. The stuff sprayed along the roads inside the Zone and around the bridgeheads at Freedom, Libby and the Spoonbill Bridges was Agent Orange. The stuff sprayed around our compounds to kill the brush and weeds was Agent Orange.

Even if you have not had any symtoms, like Diabetes, heart problems, a variety of different cancers, or any other health issues, we need to hear from you. And if you are fighting or have faught with VA for care and compensation for these health problems, we need to hear from you. And most importantly, if you had children conceived after your return from Korea who were born with birth defects, we need to hear from you. If you have been successful in winning a claim filed for Agent Orange poisoning or PTSD as a result of your service in Korea, it is very important for you to contact me.

Even though I am just a former Captain and Company Commander, I made a promise 40 years ago to stand up for my men and to back them in anything as long as they did what the officers and NCOs asked them to do. I take that promise very seriously and now, 40 years later, I will continue to back and stand up for our men. It is very important that I hear from you as soon as possible. For many of your brothers, the time could be very short, but they have families who will need help even if it is too late for the men themselves.

If you can and will help, please contact me at my email: pesteward@hotmail.com, or call me at (706) 996 - 4057.

Thank you.

Comments: I'm glad LTC White was on our side, the bastard was one mean mother. If you've still got your yearbook I'm the one with "hello I'm bigfoot" caption. Long 16 months for me thanks to extention for ETS. Nice little 'ville in the vally where the first Chosen Emperor was born... hated doing the BN death runs every month and the forced marches. Nothing better to do in the middle of the winter than getting up every thre hours to start the tracks and trucks so they wouldn't freeze solid. Helping to replace all the WD1 in Collier was a stone cold itch as well as replacing the rectifier for the ship to shore searchlight. Arrived from the turtle farm and dumped on the Z at Warrior base, left a bit wiser to the world. Good thing because 17 years later I ended up in downtown An Nasiriyah in a mobile shooting war and survived along with all my troops.

Comments: Man, I don't know where to begin. It's wierd . . . about every 5
or six years I start thinking about my tour of duty in Korea and
I get all nostalgic. I was there from November 1988 -
November 1989. Does anybody remember the MTV Club in
Itaewon? I spent many a night there. I was in flight ops at
K16 airbase. But when I first got in country, my unit was in the
field, just south of the DMZ. So for almost two weeks, I hung
out with some cook named Tony who showed me the ropes.
He took me to Itaewon for the first time - and all that that
entails! From that point on, I went to "the Won" every
weekend until I left country. Needless to say, I left the ROK
without a dime in my pocket!

Does anyone remember the name of the "vil" across the
highway from the K-16 Airbase? I spent a lot of nights there
too. There was a little club we would go to . . . and we would
all get up and do some kind of weird line-dance every time
they would play "Takin' Care of Business." I can't remember
all the names of the guys I hung out with. I do remember Jim
Broin, cause we went through AIT, Korea, and Fort Polk
together. Other names I remember are: Wolford, Rita Rae
Hettinger, SSG Biggers, SFC Boggs, Major Agosta, CPT
Sargent, Parshay.

If any of this rings a bell, email me.

VERIFYING DMZ STORIES

Comments: Hello,

First, let me thank you all for your service while deployed on the DMZ. I am doing some research for a school project and an aquaintence of mine has been telling me about his DMZ experiences from the mid-1980's. He was in the US Army Military Police, regularly stationed at Scolfield Barracks, HI. I believe 1st Brigade? He was sent to the DMZ twice during that time.

I hate to sound like I don't believe everything he's shared, but thought this might be a good place to see if the stories sound realistic. I do question some of them. He has stated that he would regularly drop from helicopters into some of the tunnel systems in the DMZ area and makes it sound like he was engaging N. Korean soldiers while crawling through these tunnels. Two things come to mind. As an MP, is it likely he was repelling from helicopters as a normal duty. Also, I think there were only 2-3 tunnels discovered by that time and they would have been guarded much like today. I believe they even give tours now to one or two.

I'm not trying to discredit the guy, but I need to know if I can count on his honesty before using his information. Any help on what an MP's duties were during that time would be helpful!

Best Regards,
David

The exception to this fact was "Warrior Base" used by 2nd INF. DIV. units from TDC. These Units did the 90 days on the DMZ.
