Comments: I am a former Navy Hospital Corpsman of the Marine Corps type. My Mother's brothers were Marines in WWII and Korea. My Uncle Ed Hayhurst was assigned to 1/1 early in the "Korean Conflict". Eddie passed away in 1995.
Marines of all generations will appreciate this: When I joined the Navy, Uncle Ed called my Mom (his little sister) and said in his best, salty Marine / parade deck voice; "you tell him (me) I disown him as a nephew! Bigtime jock uh? It'll be some warm cozy up 'The Chosin' before he'll set foot on my property again! Y'all know I'm forever armed, and 'hatin them 13-button squid assholes!" Then he slammed down the phone.
It takes nearly two years to train a basic Hospital Corpsman.... during which Mom heard not from uncle Ed. Once I completed those arduous academics, I was ordered to the Third Marine Division, by way of Camp Pendleton's "Field Medical Training".
Low and behold Mom received a call from Ed, who (in his "best Marine dressed") said something like; "yes ma'am, and.... you know how I love ya.... and I want you to tell my FAVORITE nephew (ME, the Navy Corpsman) that he's invited to Ed's Barbeque and Brew any 'fuckin time"!
After I presented him with a DI's Campaign Cover, we ate his gourmet chow, then drank a few beverages. It was at this point that Eddie Elbert Hayhurst broke out his photo albums.
GENTLEMAN: I learned more from Uncle Ed in an hour, than I had during three months at Camp Pendleton, or would in the next three years at 3d MARDIV! Maybe even more than I've learned as a Marine historian during the past 25 years! Before I left, Aunt Gladys pulled me aside and told me, "I've been married to him for 30 years, and I've never seen those pictures.... he's never talked about any of that stuff with me". I must tell you all that I have (subsequintly) heard this alot as a civilian medical professiional (X-Corpsman).
My original intrest in USMC history was strictly personal. However, now as more of you old bastards are leaving this poor young Doc, I am obligated to tell your story the right way.... Ed's way.
I need to hear from Ed Hayhurst's shipmates in those specific combat unit(s)of 1/1.... according to Marine Corps tradition. In that manner which is now concidered "politically incorrect". Or as you and I know it.... "The Truth"!
I invite any and all of you to e-mail me. I will be happy to call you or give you my phone number, and visit with you anywhere out west.

on behalf of all Americans,
(even the most unthankful sons-a-bitches)

thank you.... Semper Fi!

P.S.; Remember.... it will rot and fall off before I check it!

Keywords: EDDIE ELBERT HAYHURST USMC (1/1) Koerea '50 - '51

(A freckled, blonde/curly, .45 Cal revolver twirling, whiskey tossing, combat killer type Marine).

(From Lodi, CA)

NOTE: Those who knew Eddie, know that he was a direct decendant of original Texas cowboys, and so he rightfully valued the revolver as the most reliable of personal protection weapons. Therefore, he begged (via mail) my grandpa (a Texas borderland law man of the prohibition era) to send him a .45 S and W "triple lock" from the family armory. So Grandma Hayhurst broke one down, and mailed it to him piece by piece in cakes and brownies! THIS IS A REAL "NO SHITTER"!

I had little chance to learn or remember many names of my fellow Marines. 41 days from activation to Inchon two waves of LCVP (Higgens boats) landed on the tidal basin by mistake, got lost in the smoke. 1st heavy battle at YongDungPo on through Seoul, to Wonsan, Kojo, ShinHungNi RR head, up the road toward the the Chosen in a pinzer to help the guys get out, to Hamhung, Pusan, Masan, transfer to Co A, 1st DUKW, up to Wachon Reservor where I was wounded. Then to Yakasuka hospital, states and to NOD Bremerton until discharge.
We did alright, untrained reservists and a lot of

He was on the General John Pope and sailed from San Diego to Japan on Thursady, April 17th 1952. After being in Korea, he was pulled back to division to attend Non Commissioned Officers school. He was there until the end of July. He returned to the fuel camp, but on August 22nd of 1952 he volunteered to go to the "front" bunker hill, after the 1st marines had been hit pretty hard. He was squad leader of the 2nd squad, 3rd platoon, of Fax Co. 1st marines. He claimed to have 12 good men in his squad. On August 23rd after being ordered by his lieutenant back to the command post bunker he fell under sniper attack a few feet from the post. I am hoping to find someone who knew my father and can tell me anything aabouth this man and the events I have discribed. It would mean a great deal to me.

Comments: Still trying to locate anyone that may have been with this group. My husband went to Pusan, Korea in Aug 1950 with them, on the USS Henrico. Before he was injured over there he was in fighting at Pusan, Mason and the Naktong River.

He was hurt when a "One Lung Charlie" flew overhead, breaking his eardrum and throwing him in the Naktong River. He was with another
soldier that suffered shrapnel to his forehead. Both survived. This other soldier was too young to be over there and had to go back to
Retraining at Atsu, Japan.

There is another incident near, or close to Mason; concerning a battered schoolhouse in Chindong-ni. There are several stories about
this incident one on the Internet and the other in a book by Marguerite Higgins.

If you know anyone that was there or have any information please write me.

Comments: My father, Charles A. Bacarisse, was a Lt. with the First Marines, First Batallion, Charlie Company. After enlisting in 1950, or '51, he went OCS at Camp Pendleton, then was deployed to Korea.

He died suddenly in 1969 when I was five years old. I would like to find someone who served with him, perhaps in the engagement where he won the Bronze Star with "V" so I can find out what really happened out there.

Comments: My brother Alfred Raymond Marek died of wounds in Korea. I think that means that he died in a hospital. I would like to know where and where was he when he was injured. How was he injured. I was told that he stepped on a land mine. I would like to know if anyone who may have served with him remembers. He was from Pleasanton, Texas. He always carried a rosary and wrote that he attended the mass when available in the field. I think he was a radio operator.
