Sir:  I would appreciate any info you may be able to obtain
concerning my uncle William David Nash of 
Statesville NC.

It is my understanding that he was wounded in Korea (possibly several
times) but I've never been able, nor has any other family members, to
get him to relate his experiences to me.

I'm a Viet-Nam vet and would like to help him open up on his
experiences after all this while.

Update: Aug 01, 1998

The 'Assembly Magazine' which is the West Point Alumni journal ran
a two part series by writer Bill McWilliams in Jan and March on the
experience of West Point graduates, especially my class of 1950, in
the Korean War. It used the 7th Cav, K Company, and my experiences in
it, but is broader than that. The Korean War Vets chapter of the 7th
Cav association asked me to put it up on a web site, since they don't
get the magazine. So it is there at:

Ralph L. Shaw, 7th Cav.

First let me say that I am absolutely thrilled that I have found this 
wonderful resouce. I wish for all those seeking help the best wishes 
i can convey.

I am looking for my father: Ralph Leonard Shaw, who, as my mother 
has told me served in the 7th Cav.. He is a Canadian
who enlisted at the start of the Korean war. He was born in Burnaby
BC Canada, and he would be approx. 66 years old now. I know that he
was rotated home from Korea to become an instructer for marksmanship

After he left the service he got married, lived in Winnipeg Manitoba
Canada, Vancouver BC Canada, and then was last known to be residing
in Little Rock, Arkansas in approx. 1961-64. 

I have heard that he died there due to a relapse of Hepititis that he
originally contracted in Korea. He may have purposely disappeared,
but this has left a huge hole in my life, as I never had the chance
to know him. If anyone has any information on him, whether it be from
the past or the current, please contact me at:

16th Recon

Dear Mr. Barker

I am trying to locate Charles Erik or Eric (orginally from the
Altoona, Pa. area.) and Lt. Elsworth P. Lauer Peaches (orginally
from the Chicago).

These men served with my father in Korea from 1950-1951.  Also would
be interested in anyone else who served in the 16th Recon. in Korea. 

There was an short history of the company that was listed in the
Army's offical history of the War, but I have been unable to locate
it through the Army or the National Archives.  I wonder if anyone
could put me in touch with Roy Appleman the author of South to the
Naktong, North to the Yalu.  It was not found in his background 
papers for the book and I wonder if he might know of where the units
history might be located.

Sincerely Yours 

Earl L. Willoughby, Jr. jrwilobe@ecsis.net 


Dear Ted,

The 16th Recon. was attached to the 1st Cavalry Division
Headquarters, though they were attached to the 7th Cavalry
Regiment while on the Pusan Perimeter. 

They had lost their vehicles and were attached to the 7th Cav. as 
infantry for a couple of months, before going back in action as a 
full fledged Recon. outfit. 

The 16th Recon. is a decendant of the 302nd Recon. which was the 1st
Cavalry Division's Recon. Company during the war in the Pacific. They
became the 16th while in Japan, about one year before they were
deployed in Korea.

Earl is looking for info on the following history:  

History of the 16th Reconnaissance Company in Korea, 18 Jul. 1950 -
April 1951 and is listed as  such in Mr. Appleman's book, North to

Dear Mr. Barker,
I just stumbled upon your Korean War veterans page. It is most
admirable of you to do this. I am the son of a Veteran. He
started as a buck private in WW II, was battlefield commisioned
in Korea and went on to serve as a Special Forces Captain in the
early days of Viet Nam. He retired as a pretty highly decorated
Major in 1965.  Anyway, I know that he and his friends have a
very active organization of Korean Vets and I saw no mention of
it in your pages. They were just down at the Memorial dedication
last week. If you are interested, you might want to contact my
dad by voice (he is not on line) at (914) 621-1613. He lives in
the Hudson Valley. Maybe his org can contribute to your pages.

His name is Bob (Snuffy) Gray. He also has a good friend in CA
named Sui Lee who has a lot of archival info about
their unit(7th Cav.) and its involvement in the conflict. He doesn't
know I have written this to you but I will give him a heads up on it
as soon as I can.
Hats off to you for your fine effort,

Yesterday I picked up SFC Seymour Hoppy Harris, a gunner with
Co.H, 23rd Inf. Reg. letter - and wanted to thank him for solving a 46
year old mystery, specifically when he said, you never mentioned 
anything about the spotter planes dropping rations and duffle bags with
canteens of water...we were in attack, carrying party couldn't keep up
with us we were moving so fast.  We'd gone two days without food.  

We came upon what appeared to be a bakery box in the middle of the
pathway. We were very suspicious, but we all stopped and stared at the 
box in awe for a few minutes, certain it was booby-trapped.  Using long
slender tree limbs, we pushed at the box from some distance, managed to
flip it, and when nothing happened, lifted the lid.

Inside were what appeared to be freshly baked cinnamon rolls! Surely, a
gift from God! We dove on those rolls like the hungry dogfaces we were. 

Not long after, we began to suffer from stomach cramps, and were then
convinced that the gooks had poisoned us! But the cramps were because it
had been so long since we'd eaten.  I've told this story several times,
wondering where those rolls came from, and now, thanks to Hoppy, I know.

They'd been dropped by spotter planes!  Man, those rolls were good!

but did not succeed to take the hill that day.

Oct 3, 1951 was really rough for G company, 2n bat. I've never heard 
much about that day?  We lost almost our entire company.  We attacked at
about 6:00 am and by 10:00am there were just 12 able bodied men left for

Wonderful! I found your page and found my uncle. He was a defender of
hill 314 in the early days of the war. He passed away on September 12,
Any information you may have on this battle we would appreciate. Bud 
was in the 7th cavalry, Company L. Most of company L and I died 
defending that hill. 

We have his Purple Heart but have no information on how he died. We 
would love to hear from anyone who knew him. Bud's personal effects 
contain a bible, a letter to the family, Purple Heart, and a death
notification letter from Capt. Emanuel Carlson, 7th Cav, Chaplin. 

Since I started this search I have amassed a ream of paper detailing the
battle of the Pusan Perimeter, canvassed the family for old letters and
solicited the Army for official documents.

Re: Cecil E. Newman, 1st Lt. KIA Aug/15/1950 (USMA)

Excerpt from dialogue: Thank you very much.  The rumor has always been
that he was one of the many captured then executed.  His KIA date
coincides with an action the 1st Cav had in which some of the men from 
the 5th Cav Regt.. were murdered on Hill 303.

Maybe it is just coincidental, however.

Regards to those who served,

Col. James F. Humphries USA (Ret)

Note: the KWP has confirmed that Lt Newman was with the 7th CAV.
