Comments: I was looking through my photo's from Korea the other day and found my group shots from PLDC IN 1989 Camp Jackson. We were some young hard chargin pups then. Sure would be nice to hear from anyone that was there. I also was looking around and found my paper work from SERE school in 1989. What a treat that experience was. That school sure taught me a few lessons I will never forget. If anyone remembers these same times drop me a line it would be nice to talk to fellow vets who shared these experiences, and remember "second to none" is not a motto, but an attitude for life; because if you served with the 2ID you truly are "second to none" and this will forever be because we were the guns of the DMZ!

Comments: Glad I found this site. Have not heard the name Sonny Huerta in over 20 years. He was my roomate with Doc Wall, and my Commo partner. I remember him coming back to the barracks from downrange with leather riding outfits custom made for when he got home to his Hog. I'm riding an FLH now since 93 and a Shovelhead prior to that. I'm lookin at the book from back then...Christ we were young.
Broke my back in a jump on Fryar DZ and got out in 87. I remember how frigin cold it was in the winter (although its -18f outside right now as I write this). I've got a picture of Sonny and I sittin in a freakin foxhole we dug in the frozen ground shortly after getting there. Softball pics from on the JSA LZ. And the Chorwon Valley escapade! Collier and Oulette and patrols in the Z.
Liberty Bell was annexed to JSA and is now East Bonifas I think. Good and...interesting memories.
Keep up the fire Manchus.

Kind of funny all these messages have different names for the same places, sorta explains why D-TOC and Eighth Army have such a hard time recalling the various events along the Z - hidden from the world since day one, how can all those logs (Co BN BRG DIV) not be available for FOI inspection. The information requested is written down somewhere, at least that is why I thought we wrote it down every single hour of every single day!?!

Comments: I was in 1-72 Armor in 87 and 88. I am looking for soldiers who were part of an operation to remove a minefield that was put into the Imjin by the NKPA in November/December of 1987. This was a Battalion sized operation where we overwatched the engineers as they removed the minefield and other obstacles (they blew the mines and dragons teeth up) from the river. It was a hostile act and I am trying to fill in the blanks.

Also looking for soldiers who witnessed the riots in Seoul in October/November 87 when the ROK police and Army got into it with protestors and suspected NKPA spec ops.

What a bith that was humping that thing all over the Z. Then when I moved up to Radar site 7? We took the pps-5 on mobile sites up in the Chorwan? valley. A couple time we almost got shot by some ROK. but it was a blast. I was on patrol the night that PFC White defected. anyone got any info on that?

Comments: Looking for my own personal Turtle or anyone who is willing to act as my Turtle. Actually looking for PFC Nippie One. He knows who he is. I was assigned to Camp Stanley (HHB DIVARTY) from 1980 to 1981. Spent some time in Cheju-Do, at Santa Barbara and on the Unit Police Force. Eventually got the message (at Forth Hood) and transfered to the Air Force where I retired. Lots of fond memories of Stanley though. The most popular song was "One way ticket to the Moon" and the title fit where we were. You could hear it at any club in town, ten times or more a night. Only those that were there believe it. I've been called a liar one time too many telling Camp Stanley stories. We had no women in the 2nd Infantry except two or three at TDC, and some in the Transportation unit (also at TDC). When I got back to the Turtle Farm in 1981, women were just begining to be stationed there, but that's another story. I took my first wife there and we lived outside the main gate until my daughter was born. There were only two amrican women on Stanley (My wife and another wife) and they would close the gym for them in the morning so they could shower. When m y daughter was born I was ordered to move to Oui Jong Bu where we shared a "Western Style" apartment with a couple from Camp Red Cloud. "When I die I'll go to heaven...cause I already spent my time at Stanley". You guys know the word that goes there. Second To None!!!

Comments: Hello, just found this great site. I served 4 tours in Korea,from feb84 until august87.I was a member of the radio platoon,C.CO.102ND M.I.BN. 2ND I.D. These we're the best years out of 10 yrs that i spent in the Army.It was , as many people posted on here the best place to soldier in the Army.I am searching for any former members that was with that unit or other units that i may have been co-located with or attached to. I ran the Retrans teams for the BN.I started out a Pfc, then Sp4, acting Sgt and finally Sgt.My team did the first airmobile insertion the bn. ever did. i believe in 84/85, from Camp Hovey firing range to ,i believe hill832 in the chorwon valley.(that was many combat bottles of soju ago).Our LtCOL Rode with us and the aviation W.O."s piloting the blackhawk had to punch the load (jeep and trailer) from about 4' off the surface of that hilltop l.z. due turbulance. it blew out 2 tires on the jeep and almost bounced off the side of hill 832.We we're often co-located with other retrans teams of the 4/7cav,1/23inf and 1/38inf.anyone remember those cold frozen nights on those hills? We also of course supported the M.I.Linguists/D.F. guys in A.CO. And the radar site guys in B.CO. Anybody remember that hellacious road(path) up to CASEY 39er,we occaisinally sat up site right below the top.I remember a few times going up that hill in the snow and mud with 4 tire chains on the jeep,pulling a heavy trailer,plastic doors removed in case we had to bail out,redlining the tach all the way.more than once we would round one of those hairpin "s" curves and side swipe "audishi" coming down on his "kimchi cadillac" with twigs and shit stacked about 20' high and about as wide. ah!the memories. also the ratt mission deployed to the dmz for one of those rice exchanges between the north and south. remember standing in line at the chow hall and having propaganda leaflets fall like confetti from the sky.our katusa was lee yong won with those b.c.g's on his head. about 15%of our platoon fell out puking on some of those p.t.runs after staying up almost all night partying and then having to run behind one of those johnny on the spot trucks. i have a lot of pics and memories.my best partner sp4 cameron,last seen him as a e-6 at bragg, if any of ya'll remember the times e-mail me.

The platoon leader was 2nd Lt.Nasoncik,Its been so long I have forgotten most of the names but will never forget the faces and the times we shared good and bad.I will never forget the village and the partying we did. I dont mind forgetting the field and the cold and miserable heat.
I wish I would have been a little more mature back then so I could have enjoyed the culture more,all I wanted to do was get the hell out of thre the whole time I was over there,so I probly missed out on a lot.
There is one thing for sure thou I didnt miss out on the getting drunk and raising hell down range.I thout I was going to die after the first time I drank some of that imbolmbing fluid they called beer,lord that took some getting use to.But seriously though I hope we served a purpose over there because we went through some stuff,most of the people I tell about what all we did think I am makeing it up, I would like to see them try it and then hear what they have to say.Look anyone who served with me I would really love to hear from you.

Its over 20 yrs now and lord knows if there are any of us left , but if there are I would love to here from you.when I think back on my tour in korea I sometimes forget just how hard it was. Hard really isnt the word its more like pure hell when i remember all those freezeing nights and miserable schorching hot days tromping around in thoes stinking rice paddies and running up and down that mountain at camp howze.I think the friends i made over there were the best ive ever had and ill never forget the times we shared good and bad.Korea was the turning point in life for me. I thought if i could survive that i could probly surive anything.I really appreciated and respected the men i served with and if any of you get this message i would like to hear from you.I still remember the smells over there sometimes ill get a wiff of somethine an it takes me back to walking through the village drinking and raising hell it seems just like yesterday and then it seems like it was just a dream.I cant think of anything i would like to do more than to go back and spend one weekend down range with the wild bunch.may god bless you all.

Comments: Who can tell me about what exactly happened in December of 1983? I was part of the night observation team at GP Ouelette when the North Koreans came over, or did they? Unfortunatly, the ANTAS-4 we were using kept having problems with its cooling bottles, so only parts of the night we could observe what was happening. I have had some conflicting info, and it has been so long ago, that I start questioning myself on what happened. Who can refresh my memory? I do remember seeing a QRF team spread eagle on the frozen rice paddies, lots of night allum, shots fired(QRF only?), something(one?) flying through the air by the lake, something(one?)cooling down while watching through the ANTAS-4, and body bags. I also remember Capt. Bonn (who unfortunatly died recently) saying in formation we would not receive CIB's, but what was the specific reason why. Does anyone remember the specifics? I looked back on these entries, and noticed the Ralph Darrow wanted to know too. Ralph if you read this I e-mailed you and hope your old e-address is still the same. If not, then e-mail me.

I have read lots of stories about what happened that day. Yes he shot off a lock, and ran into the "No Man's Land" he was waving his arms and saying stuff in Hanguk.. The NK Army opened a gate for him and beat his goat smelling a@s. We were all shocked at this incident. I wasnt in his company or platoon I was in Support PLT. PFC Kawslic and I were there taking soldiers back and forth in our Duce and a half. We went back to our motor pool at the end of our shift. At formation our CO Cpt Satch Smith along with 1SG Ken Lacy said that we were going to go get our boy.. I myself was scared shi%less to be honest with U I was a young 19 year old PVT. Not short enough to not go, I had like 5 months or so left to DEROS; I already had seen my fair share of events two of my buddies stepped on a land mine just outside of the Manchu club, a Willie Pete round landed just outside of our barracks one night made a huge crator and blew out off of the windows, come to find out it was a ROK ARMY night fire exercise gone wrong and now this idiot goes to North Korea... I couldnt wait to get out of Camp Greaves and go back to the world or even ETS but anywhere would be better than here... I try to but all the events that happened there in the back of my mind and not think of them all thease things I mentioned plus being shot at I dont know how many times; PFC Kawslics and my duce and a half had so many bullet holes in it by the time we both DEROSed it wasnt funny; On my last trip over the Freedom Bridge I threw my Buckle in the Imjin river as the tradition says in hopes never to come back, well at the turtle farm I was ordered to buy another buckle since I was out of uniform and had to wear my class As on the plane. I went back to the World stationed at Ft. Knox KY until I ETSed but dumb ol me I REUPed and went right back to Korea. Now here is the rest of the story... A friend was reading the paper and said that Comrad White was brought down to the DMZ and executed by the NK ARMY and that the US ARMY couldnt retreave his body because it would cause caos. (like there isnt any up there to begin with). So since we were at YongSan I took this young PFC to Camp Greaves with me to show him what the real ARMY lives like. I still have that buckle I wear it with pride everyday because I am what most people only hear about and a few experience Im a ........... MANCHU WARRIOR KEEP UP THE FIRE........................

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

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)..

If you're out there anywhere "Hosehead", I'd sure love to hear from you. P.S. Capt McCrystal is now GENERAL McCrystal.
