Comments: I am hoping to find old buddies of my grandfathers that were stationed at K6 in 53-54. His names is Richard Barrentine. I am trying to make a scrap book for him and in it will be K6 then and K6 (Camp Humphreys) now. I would love to be able to add a comment or two in there from people he was stationed with. He is my hero and I look up to him so very much and love him even more. I want to thank each of you for your service to our country and the freedom I have today because of you!

Comments: I was a control tower operator in July and August of 1921 when
squadrons of f4u Corsairs moved in, and before the Marines took
over control tower operation. Looking for any fellow control
tower operators from that period of time, or Marines who flew the
Corsairs. I have many terrific pictures from that period of
time. Following my K-18 service, I was at K-14 a few months and
finished my tour at K-16.

Comments: I arrived in korea with the 29th draft in jan.53. I was
an ordinanceman (mos 65). WE Broke a tonnage
record,dropping 156 tons in one day. I often wondered
what happened to all my good buddies from vma121. While
there, a USO show visited starring actress Terry
Moore.Her biggest movie was Mighty Joe Young. I often
wonder what the base looks like today. The five day
R and R,s were great, going to OSAKA and KYOTA.It was a
back breaking job but we were young,and we were
marines. We all pulled together and got the job done.If
anyone out there was in VMA121, sure would like to hear

Comments: Sgt Donald C Pantie was my uncle. He died in a civilian plane crash while delivering an aircraft in 1957 and I was never able to meet him. Unfortunately, I have very little information about my uncle or what he did during his time in Korea. I am very interested in speaking with anyone who served with him and might be able to provide me with even the smallest personal detail, particularly since my father died two years ago and was the last surviving member of his family.

His grave indicates the following: SGT 1 MAW MAG 12 VMF 513 so I assume that I am looking in the right place.

Many thanks in advance.

Comments: when rendered unusable, certain vacuum-tubes, had to be destroyed
for security reasons... when a significant number of olde, crt's, or
other radar type-tubes, were collected, the base security people
would gather up some of us who needed hours on the firing-range
and we'd open-fire on tubes just placed in the waters of, asan-man-
bay... we'd get to fire all manner of arms, to sink these very
important
tube-types, so as to keep them out of enemy hands... perhaps a,
thompson-sub, was the most used weapon, for this purpose; and it
was, pretty impressive as you squeezed off rounds... i can't imagine
the damage a weapon like that would do in combat... i was very proud
to serve w/ the, "usmc", troops assigned to k-6 as as part of, mag-

Would like to hear from other members of 18th Draft, and members of HqSq-12, from March 1952 to, April 1953..
I was an S-2 clerk, MOS 7011, and knew lots of guys in the Communications shack, and S-3 Operations.
Also pulled one month of guard duty at K-6..
On the return home, we were aboard a Navy transport, USS Randle (I think), at which time, there was a punk wiseguy sailor who seemed to delight in trying to get Staff NCOs and sgts to man their brooms, and chip paint...
Needless to say, he was very unsuccessful.
Hope to hear from an veterans of either MAG 12 or 18th draft.

Comments: Does anyone know the whereabouts of Lt. Col. R. J. Holm, or Col. A. W. Fisher.? We're talkin 1955 time. Col. Holm was C. O. of VMA 251 in late 1954 and 1955. Col Fisher was Base Commander at that time. I will never forget Col. Fisher.

When my tour was over, and we were gathering at base operations waiting for an R4Q or an R4D to fly us to Japan, on 1 January 1956, a vehicle drove up at base ops, before sunup, and Col. Fisher came into the shack and shook hands with every man there, and said he was proud to have served with us.

How many people have you known like that since then, military or civilian?
