Re: Kum River engagement

My uncle, Cpl. Anthony "Ank" Knapke, was captured in Korea less than 
three weeks after he landed in July(?) 1950.  He had served in Japan
after WWII and reupped when the Korean war started. 

He died in a death march, probably not long after that.  I believe his 
name may be on the "Johnson's list" or "Tiger's list" mentioned in the 
January Readers Digest article.

Does anyone have information about my uncle? Also,   I am looking for 
information on several men of the 19th regmt. 

Edwin Ryan, a chaplain's asst. was a buddy of my uncle before the 
Korean War.  Ryan survived the war.  I would really like to contact him.

I am also interested in contacting the family of Rev. Herman Felhoelter 
who was killed July 16th at Taepyong-ni.

I also would like any info on Eugene Gawlick, who may also have 
been a buddy.

 He started in Co. A, but ended up in Head & Head Co.  He was captured 
at the Kum River on July 16, 1950 and died in the Death March on 
November 4, 1950.  Edwin Ryan was a kind man who sent some very welcome
letters to my grandmother when Anthony was MIA.

More:I have also pursued this line of questions through the
Tiger Survivors organization.  A man named Shorty Estabrook gave me
some info.  The only difference is that according to him, Johnson's
list shows my uncle as dying on a death march between Mampo-jin and
Chung'gang-jin North Korea, not in Camp 5.

I was in the Korean war from Jul. 1950 to Dec. 1951
I was in the 34th Inf Reg 24Th Div until the 34Th inf Reg was changed to
the 19 th Inf Reg, then I was in that.

I am on line with many other Korean vets and they seem to know what
battles they were in and the dates of the battles. I can only remember
very few of the names of the hills and towns in which I took part in
battles. 

How can I get information that places my outfit in these places. I want
to join a club (The Chosin Few ) But I have to know if I was in the
Battle  of the Chosin Reservoir. 

You would be of great service to me if you can help me compile this
information.

Thank you,

My uncle Eddie Wallace joined the Army when he was 15 using his dead
older brother's birth certificate his name was Emil Wallace.

Eddie was killed in combat in Korea and even today is still buried under
his brother's name.The reason this was never corrected was because my
great grandparants used his G.I. insurance to buy a house.They were
afraid to report the wrongfull death of this boy.

Anyway,my greatgrandparents are dead so they face no charges.Please

More:

I arrived in Korea just before Christmas 1950, I think it was Christmas
Eve. Near the date of Jan/02/1951, I remember myself and several others
were moving up to the battle front on a truck load of ammunition. This
was at the time when our armed forces were retreating to Defense 
Line "D". 

The truck sled off the road, rolled over, injuring us all. That could of
been near that date Jan 02. I was treated at the Headquarters Aid 
Station as released. I was told by the medical officer, I would receive
a Purple Heart. As far as I know I never received that one.

In the first week of February 1951, my unit the 19th. Inf. Reg. which
included my company "C" company, was involved in the "Operation
Thunderbolt" battles, near Ichon, Korea. This operation was from 
February 1-11 1951. It was here were I was wounded, it most likely could
have been on Feb 02 1951. I no longer remember the dates. For this I 
also received a Purple Heart.

I was evacuated to a rear aid station, from there flown by aircraft
to Pusan, South Korea, where I was hospitalized on a Hospital Ship. 
(I think the name was) Hospital Ship Consolation. I believe my stay 
there was nearly three weeks, before I returning to my unit the 19th Inf
Reg back on the front lines.

I sometimes wonder what were the names of all these small villages I
went through during my time in Korea.

My father's name is William D. Sawyer, he was a Corporal when he was
wounded, If in any of your research and contacts with veterans who may
have been on Hill 606 on Feb. 4, 1951 would you please have them drop 
me a line.

He was on Hill 606 when he was hit.  He was wounded in the shin and
could not walk off of the hill.  He was left there with two other 
casualties. They were stranded on the hillside for three days until they
were airlifted out.  They were some of the first battlefield casualties
to have been evacuated by helicopter.

He has related a few stories of his experiences to me, but mostly he 
keeps it to himself.

In 1984 I served in Korea for a one year tour I was first stationed ad
Bupyong, which during the war I understood that it was known as ASCOM 
and it also served as MacArthur's headquarters.  After about a month I 
was reassigned to a unit in Seoul.  There were still walls on that
compound which bore the scares of war.

Gentlemen:

I am inquirying to see if you can tell me where I can obtain some
information concerning my brother who was killed in Korea.

His name was Alfonso Garcia drafted out of Sacramento, California and I
believe he was in the 24th infantry division. Could you advise me as to
whom to either write or e-mail. 

I do have a copy of the letter from the government notifying my mother 
of his demise and I do have his military I.D. number. What I am trying 
to find out if was he was awarded medals he rightfully deserve for 
giving up his life for his country.

Thank you for your time.

I never knew my Uncle as he was killed in the Korean War in 1950. I was
not born until 1968. I am still interested in finding out if anyone out
there knew him and how exactly he was killed. 

His name is Earl P. Elswick.
