Comments: I never got to Korea but probably would have gone as we finished 16 weeks of basic at Fort Ord a week after the truce was signed. I appreciate the 2nd Infantry Division for their involvement in Korea. I was stationed at Fort Lewis, WA when the 2nd returned in 1952 or 1953. Our 44th Infantry Division (Illinois National Guard) was deactivated. My job was finance clerk in the 12th FA Personnel Office. Was discharged in March 1955.

A few years later I drove onto Fort Lewis but hardly recognized our old area in the wooden barracks. Our battery commander was 1st Lt. Whiteside who was a POW. BN commander was Major Kinnard.

Today I conduct a monthly veterans breakfast. Thanks to all 2nd Division veterans for your service. .

Comments: Hoping I can get some information! My father served in Korea from 69 to 70. He was stationed at camp snow. He had the agent orange test done and it came back that he has heart disease. I took him to the va representative and now he needs proof he was near the dmz. He was to have statements for buddies or pictures. My problem is my father has a hard time even talking about the military so I don't know how to find the names of those in his unit. Anyone with info would certainly help.

Later we were attached to 2ID Divarty just over the hill from us. I along with other MSA 20 personnel are in the 1/12th book (like an annual) that was made while I was there. We had some good folks and all your Redlegs referred to us as the Animals of MSA20 a name that we wore proudly!
