Comments: I have a picture of my father, Sgt James E Reeves taken with 2 other Marines
and Janis Page holding signs with 1st 90 mm Gun Bttn Marine Corps Reserve
written on them. This was either in Chicago about 1950 before he went to Korea
or at Legune after he returned from Korea in late 51 or early 52. I was wanting
to contact anyone who might have served with my father.

Comments: This item appeared in Sgt. Grit's Newsletter in which he posed the question, What were your most memorable days in the Marine Corps? Our Sgt. Vogel responds as follows:

Actually I had three best days.
1. The day I graduated from Boot Camp (P.I.) 9/9/51
2. The day I met Chesty Puller at Pendleton. (Full Field Marching Pack inspection). 8/15/52
3. The day I met Gen. Lemuel C. Sheperd Commandant of the Marine Corps in Korea. (Personnel inspection). October of 1952., Don't remember the day.

The marching pack inspection went well for most of us. Gen. Shepard asked my age (18) and how long I had been in Korea. (14 days) His reply was good man.
There could not have been a more proud Marine that day.

Comments: Seeking information on my dad's USMC unit. His unit was the 1st 90mm AAA Gun Bn, 1st MAW, FMF Pac. My dad was Joseph Teddy Veillon from Mamou, Louisiana. He was 17-18 years old at the time and he spoke fluent French. He served in Korea in 1951-1952. He was on a troop train that collided with a civilian passenger train near Lettsworth, Louisiana in 1950-1951. I'm seeking information on what larger unit the 1st 90mm Gun Bn belonged to and any actions it may have been involved in. I'm also seeking anyone who might have known my dad and remember any experiences they may have had together. Thanks.

It was about the third day out to sea when I broke out with poison ivy from the waist down.I'll never forget that week. I continue to have vived memories of that wreck. I remember the first night in Korea as we disembarked the air raid sirens while we were moving to our gun compound to relieve the Army. I also remember the planes landing in front of our gun position at (K-3,I think) and the pilot that crashed just short of our position. Would like to hear from anyone that served 8-51 to 5-52.

Comments: I should of mentioned that I along with Larry Barrett(Colorado) were in the radio shack on the side of the hill. We pulled 24 hours duty(6 on and 6 off). Sure got boring.
I remember that the Army had a riot on some island
and ours was the only radio that could reach the
good guys. An Army General came to us and asked to use our radio. He asked what could he do for me(Larry was on R and R)and I asked for a fifth of whiskey and the next day his aide brought one to me, I got crocked and had a Capt mass. What could he do?
Nothing-No body else could man the radio Ha/Ha

Do you all remember the typhoon that hit us. I
slept in one of the gun pits.

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: I am looking for anyone who might have known my father while he was in Korea. He passed away a year ago. He never talked much about the time he spent in Korea. I am very interested in finding out any information about him. He was a die hard Marine until the day he died. He was also a lifetime member of the Tobin and Nanniga Marine Corps League in Pekin, IL.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: Would like to hear from any of my former Marine buddies that were in "C" Battery, 1st 90 MM AAA Gun Battalion during the Korean War. I was there from April 1952 to April 1953. I was known at that time as Rusty Spencer. I would also like to know if any of you might have developed foot problems from the bitter cold that we encountered there on top of the hill. I have numbness in the feet and left leg that they cannot explain and I have heard of frozen feet giving you problems many years later. Let me know, please. The Lord blessed me by allowing me to come back and now I am a Minister of the Gospel. Long way from being a Marine, huh. Get in touch, please. God bless you Marine.
