Comments: Just got my dad discharge papers. I wrote to the National Personnel Records Center. They were unable to provide the records due to the fire in St Louis back in 1973. Happy to say my brother and I finally got his records. My dad was Sargent George C. Schaefer from Philadelphia, PA. He Was at Camp Kilmer in New Jersey from 1/24/1951 - 1/23/1952. He served in Korea from 1/1952 - 10/1952. He was with the Corps of Engineers, Company A, 10th Engineer (Combat) Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division. He didn't speak much of the war. I'm searching for anyone who may have known him or has any pictures during that time. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. Thank you.

Comments: I am looking for any friends of my father's that he served with in Co. A 10th Combat Engineers, in 1952-53. He has alzhiemers now and I am caring for him, he is still able to remember things from then better than he does what is happening now. He has some pictures and some names written down in a notebook he has had since he was there. Some of the names he has written down are Delbert D Dotson, Claude A. Holman, A Perella, Curtis L. Jernigan, Charles E. Utley, Cpl. Samuel McVey, Angelo Pavesi, Joseph A. Stevens. I have heard him speak alot about Capt. Spiller, and he has pictures of the Bulldozer Bowl with Hank Snow and Earnest Tubb performing. I would love to hear from anyone that remembers him.

Comments: I am trying to help a veteran with obtaining benefits from his Korean war service. He served as a cook with the 10th Combat Engineers from 1951 to 1952. His military records were burned in the fire at the national archives in 1973, so we are having trouble proving his responsibilities during the war to the VA. Does anyone recollect where the cooks prepared and brought the food to during the war? Were they bringing the food to the front lines? Any help would be appreciated. He served with Alpha Company if that helps any.

Wondering if there are any people here who may have served with
him and are familiar with an incident of incoming fire which
occured at an Airfield he was working on along with some locals
and Soldiers within the unit.

Looking to get supporting documentation to retroactively submit
paperwork for a Purple Heart and Bronze Star after records were
lost in the St. Louis fire.

Any information available would be greatly appreciated. I'd
like to see who may be out there who knows my Uncle as he's
planning to attend my upcoming Battalion Change of Command
ceremony at Fort Stewart, GA, home of the 3rd ID, this January.

Thank you very much!

Comments: I joined C Co. 10th Engr Cmbt Bn, 65th RCT, 3rd Inf Div about March 23, 1951. Since my records indicated that I could type, the CO, Capt C E O'Brien, assigned me as Co Clerk in the CP, much against my wishes as I had joined the Army in Sept 1950 to serve in the infantry. Very early on June 5, 1951, an infantry unit requested through the CP radio that we send a platoon to string a rope across the flooded Hantan River, near our company position, so the infantry could cross more easily. The river was only about 5 ft deep, rapidly flowing east. Pfc Josue Cortes-Boisjoli volunteered to tie the rope around his waist and struggle against the current to the other side. He got about halfway across the river, about 30 feet, when the Chinese, hiding in heavy growth on the other side, opened up with machine gun and mortar fire. He died instantly. His body washed down the river and was recovered later that afternoon. About
18 soldiers of Co C were wounded, but no others were killed. Both company medics were there and both were seriously wounded. The infantry survived without injury as they were not on the sandbar where the enemy fire was directed. A small heliocopter, named Mechanized Angel, arrived with a pod on each side and began transporting the wounded to a MASH hospital. I still have a photo that I took of the heliocopter and our troops loading the wounded. That evening back at the CP, Emilio Maldonado Lazado, Jr., our supply clerk, and I found a parcel from Josue's family. It contained tins of rice and beans from Puerto Rico. We opened the tins and ate the meal in tribute to Josue. A 2nd Lt discovered us eating it and gave us hell. We felt that Josue would have wanted his fellow soldiers to enjoy it as a tribute to him. His fellow countryman, my good friend Emilio, and I said prayers for Josue's soul. That's all I can remember.

Comments: ALL Former Sky Bridge Battalion Soldiers...
- Some may remember me, I was the 10th EN Bn Executive Officer in 2002-2004 and corresponded with many of you, or put you in touch with soldiers in the unit during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM.
- I noticed the remark regarding deactivation of the 10th Engineer Battalionn in "March 2003". That is not correct... we were crossing the border of Iraq and on our way to Baghdad in Mar 2003. The unit actually did deactivate with the Army's modular restructuring efforts in Jun 2004... we were actually the first to test the concept during a National Training Cneter rotation in Mar 2004. The engineer companies became "permanent" or "organic" E Companies in the infantry/armor battalions that they had habitually supported in the past. The battalion HQ was converted to a Bigade Troops Battalion that consisted of a Signal Company, Military Police Company or Platoon, Military Intelligence Company and various other unique functional elements. Similar restructuring has been occurring over the past 3-years acrosss the Army as each division is restructured to the new modular Unit of Employment and Unit of Action structure... obviously these transitions have been affected by the Army's continuing experiences and force requirements in Iraq.
- Now... I suspect the 10th Engineer Battalion's deactivation is short lived and if they are not already back, they will be soon. There are numerous modular engineer organizations included in the Army's new structure at UEx (onld Div) and UEy (old Corps/Army) levels and, given the 10th Engineer Battalion's battle history, it's pretty likely that one of those new elements will get the "Sky Bridge Battalion" colors. I'll make an attempt to find out where the 10th falls out in this plan and post an update in the future.

Comments: Richard, I have tried very hard to get some closure for the loss of your brother. What little info I have passed to you I hoped would have helped. Further, it was my greatest hope to have been able to give you more about your brother, but it is out of my control and in the hands of a very few survivors left alive.They have been so touched and forever changed by these horrible experiences. Please know that what I have passed to you is from the very lips of a survivor.

Comments: Edward, please let me know how to reach you regarding the people you mentioned in your 6/28/05 posting.Click on the button for my email address, etc. Do you recall MSGT. Russel "Pop" McClain? At one point in January or February 1952 there is a picture of Lt. Caplinger, My Dad, and "Pop" on a very large Bailey Bridge. Caplinger was my Dad's Platoon Leader at this point in time. Need your help to identify. Do you recall what Platoon Dennis "Cap" Caplinger was leader of? I have a lot of info to share with you and I so need your help. You are the first Officer I've been able to make contact with. Again, please let me know how to reach you!
