Comments: My grandfather passed away 3 days after I turned 9 years old so I never really got to know anything about his service, or nearly enough of him for that matter. Fast forward to today (I'm 34) and I have been writing a family history for my surname's side of the family and have now started researching my mother's side as well. This has made me curious about his service. From what I know he was in the 10th Field Artillery Battalion Battery C and his dates of service were 11/18/48-5/22/52. An article in the paper for his wedding in January of 1952 says he just returned from 12 months of service in a combat area and he was going to report to Indiantown Gap, PA for reassignment. He was born and raised in Northampton County, PA. His burial card lists his rank as sergeant. Any information about him, the unit, or where to look for more detailed information would be greatly appreciated. My grandmother has dementia so my sources of information are dwindling. Thank you in advance for any and all help!

Comments: I was wondering if anyone can tell me of any medals awarded to the 10th FA C Battery? I think the medals that I have heard about were from when an outbreak happened with the Chinese lines and the battery had to fire their weapons for 36 hours straight or something like that I am trying to replace some of my grandfathers medals. I have his service records but they are strung together from what could be restored because my grandfathers records were destroyed in the St. Louis fire. Like I said any information would be so very helpful.

Unit: COUNTER MORTAR RADAR 10TH FIELD ARTILLERY

Comments: On the High Bank of the Injim River
By Fred Sinclair


In early December of 1951 we were ordered to set up our counter-mortar radar on the east high bank of the Injim River in Korea about 2 miles east of a hill called Dagmar, more commonly known as Hill 355 or by the Chinese as Kowangsan. The headquarters camp of our 10th Field Artillery Battalion of the 3rd Division was just south of Dagmar, so we had to ford the river in our vehicles to get from headquarters to our emplacement. We were about a mile east of the line formed by the hills our army occupied and because that line crossed a wide valley where there were no emplacements we were wide open to a probing attack by a Chinese night patrol so our officers gave us a squad of Philippine soldiers for a perimeter guard.
The Filipinos rumbled into our emplacement area in a beat up halftrack that had seen better days. The squad consisted of a sergeant, a corporal, and six privates but no one wore insignia, so it was difficult to tell who was in charge because they did things with out any one giving orders. The Filipinos were there to guard us and our radar at night and in the day time they were to go up a valley to where the two armies were arrayed against one another and drive slowly between the two in an attempt to draw fire from the Chinese army so our artillery could shell their positions.
Now that may sound like dangerous work but, the fact is, riding in that half track may have been the safest job in that entire valley.
Our side, in addition to our counter-mortar radar, had tracked-anti-artillery radar, sound stations, flash stations, and forward artillery observers embedded with the infantry, so much so, if a Chinese soldier had burped real load he would have been in danger of having a large amount of artillery fired at him with all the shells arriving at his front door at the same time and, believe me, no one in the world in their right mind would wish for that, so the experienced and well disciplined Chinese soldiers simply refused to fire on the halftrack, not ever, not with any thing.
Now you would have thought the army would have sent that halftrack out for one or two days and given up on the idea, but thats not how the army works. The book called for attempting to draw fire in that situation, so for two and half months from early in December to the middle of February the Filipinos got up each morning that it didnt snow, checked the oil in their vehicle, gassed up out of jerry cans, forded the river, and went up the valley and slowly meandering through the abandoned farms on the Chinese side and coming back through the farms on the American side, dared the Chinese army to fire at them but the Chinese knew better and it never happened.
The Filipinos were old line regular soldiers who told us they would rather





be in Korea with us then at home fighting the Muslim rebels. We were either draftees or reservists. We ate our C-Rations individually; the Filipinos pooled their rations, appointed one man as cook and he cooked hot meals for his buddies and they ate together. We policed our area as a unit, all together. They appointed one man to do that work and he and the cook stayed in camp. We had no musician. The Filipinos carried a guitar player and a guitar and on many nights after chow he would play the guitar and the men would sing in Spanish. The Filipinos were on average 5 to 10 years older than we.
The peace talks had started in July so things were pretty quite. Dagmar was a high hill which dominated the terrain for 10 miles in every direction. In a surprise attack, the British and the Korean Army had taken the hill from the Chinese Army in October and we, the 10the Field Artillery and the 7th, 15th, and 65th Regiments of the 3rd Infantry Division were inserted there to hold that hill at any cost. The Chinese badly wanted their hill back before the peace talks ended so each month on nights when something approaching a full moon came up after 2200, the Chinese would mount a fierce attack with infantry and mortars in an effort to retake Dagmar, and we would light up the old radar and start calling in coordinates to the fire-direction center and our artillery would go to work, and after awhile the blips would slowly stop appearing on the screen and the artillery would go silent, and we knew our infantry had held once again as we knew it would, and we would close up shop for the night. But that was only three or four nights a month. We had huge search lights; the Chinese had to rely on the moon.
The rest of the time we had to ourselves.
About two weeks after we came together the Filipinos brought in a small deer they had killed with their 50-caliber machine gun. The Korean deer were about the size of a large dog, had tusks like a hog, and barked like a dog.
The Filipinos cook using flour, potatoes and onions he had scrounged somewhere, hot chilies from a nearby abandoned vegetable garden, a cut off jerry can as a pot, and cooking over an open fire worked up an unbelievably tasty deer meat stew, and they invited us for supper. We had a beer ration of 24 cans a month and we could buy beer from the non-drinkers so each of us had a few cans stashed away and those came out to be shared with the Filipinos and after we had finished eating, the guitar man started playing and we were drinking beer together and singing songs in a language only John Ramariz, the only Latino among us, knew and before the night was over, we and the Filipinos were the best of friends. I vaguely remember getting up and dancing around the fire before I passed out.
After that the meal, beer drinking, and sing along party became a regular thing on Saturday nights.. Sometimes it was deer meat, sometimes steaks we got from our mess tent and, after the two Southerners amongst us managed to put out trot lines, fried catfish. Some of the non-drinking officers were selling their whiskey rations, so occasionally we even had good whisky to share with our new friends.
Our camp was set up near the remains of a Korean farmers abandoned rock house our artillery had demolished to keep it from being used as cover and there were the remains of a vegetable garden nearby and a large cornfield that had been abandoned and was drying out. The corn field was home to a flock of pheasants, so for the first and only time in my life I got to hunt pheasants. A raising pheasant is hard to hit with an army carbine, but I managed to bring down two and gained the reputation of being a much better shot then I actually was.
We all carried rifles. We, carbines, the Filipinos, Garands, except for the Filipinos sergeant who carried a grease gun and we had all the ammo you could ever want, so we set up targets and held shooting contests.
.I know we should be telling of the horrors of war to cool the ardor of the hot spurs amongst us instead of the telling of the more pleasurable times such as occasionally getting to enjoy outdoor life with good companions, do a little hunting, a little fishing, and occasionally fire a rifle for the pure pleasure of shooting one. However, the truth of the matter is I regard those two and a half months I spent at on the high bank of the Injim River as one of the more enjoyable interludes of my long life except for one incident that happened in early February.
One afternoon the Filipinos half track rumbled into camp and stopped and the soldiers piled out of the rear and the sergeant stepped out from the shotgun seat and waved me over and gestured for me to climb up on the side and look in the troop compartment which I did and lying down in one corner huddled together in shabby worn out clothes was a Korean family, a man, his wife, a teen aged son, and two young girls and the father was staring up into my white face in abject terror of what I might do to him and his family. I stared back for a few seconds and dropped off the track I had been standing on and turned to face the other sergeant.
Who are they? I asked.
And looking me in the eye with a look on his brown face as though he were searching for something, he answered in English with a Spanish accent They are Korean farmers. They were out in the valley working their land at night to get it ready to plant a crop so they will have something to eat. A forward observer saw the land was being worked and called me on the radio and asked me to investigate, and I found them hiding in a burrow and he ordered me to them in.
He turned and climbed into his side of the vehicle and the halftrack drove off toward the crossing on the Injim River and thats the last I saw of that Korean family but those few seconds made me realize something. We Americans and our UN allies didnt belong there and the Chinese didnt belong there either. Our separate governments were settling their differences with each other by warring
with each other on another peoples land so their own lands wouldnt be devastated and there was nothing right about that.

Recently, I returned to the Injim River via Goggle Maps. There was a concrete bridge where we had forded the river and just to the north of the bridge, a high steel fence on a large concrete base. The vegetable garden and the corn field were long gone and as I scanned up the valley north of the fence in what is now called in Orwellspeak the Demilitarized Zone, where once had been a patchwork of abandoned farms there was now only forest.
Some people say that is good, that the land has healed itself from the ravishes of farming and the wild life and the habitat has returned to its natural state but I beg to disagree. I believe that land would have been much better cared for by that Korean farmer, his neighbors, and their descendents than by those two countries.. There were plenty of pheasants, deer, and other animals living there in 1952. I doubt seriously if they are there now. Soldiers hunt too.
And why are we so arrogant that we feel we have the right to tell other people how to use their land when we have just destroyed the ecology of the Gulf of Mexico in order to have cheap gasoline for our cars? Just who are we to decide such things in another peoples land. We had no right to take that land and make a permanent war zone of it.
God will judge us for that.

I supervised one crew. We operated during many battles for the hills in front of the 3rd division during the 1951-52 winter and were very suceesful in helping to knock out enemy mortars. We were at the battle for Dagmar Hill on Thanksgiving day of 1951. I was operating the set when we helped knock out a Russian made rocket launcher in the fall of 1951.

Comments: very little is written about the battles in 52-53. I got enough points in to come home just 3 months before the fighting stopped. Does anyone remember the bug out when we lost a few 105's and perhaps a man or two? War is hell and sometimes it lasts a long ,long time.

enough to fire a while and "move out"

plus an amazing variety of spirit type beverages.
James Foote and I shared some laughs over things
in whichj humor would be difficult to explain--except to a soldier.
