Comments: Looking through my Army enlistment papers and came across my grandfathers DD214. I believe he served in this unit during Korea. Could anyone confirm if he did. If not I will do some more research. His name is Cliff Morgan and he served in the US Army between the dates of 5 Nov 52 and 30 Sept 54. He is in a nursing home in Milton PA and at times can't remember things, I was hoping to jog his memory.

am having awful time finding proof that he was in Korea. Apparently
there was a fire in 1973 and records were destroyed.If anyone
served with him please contact me maybe you can give me more
info than I have. He didn't talk about the time there to me much but
he told me some stories. He passed away in April and I will never
get to talk to him about his service again but I do think he deserves
all the benefits befitting a veteran. My husband is a Marine and I
cannot imagine him being denied his service honors.

Comments: I was A Platoon leader in Company A of the 1343 Comba engr. Bt. Later assigned as Asst. S3 at Battallion HQ. In 1951 In Korea from Jan 1951 through April 1952'

I remember Korea by Ed Wright 7/26/03

The Korean police action started in mid June 1950. The North Koreans quickly took Seoul and pushed toward Pusan before General MacArthur made a bold strike by invading at Inchon, well behind the enemy lines. The United Nations and the Republic of Korea (ROK) troops quickly pushed toward the Yalu River before the Chinese intervened.

With the Chinese in the conflict the United Nations and ROK troops were again driven south and toward Pusan. President Harry Truman Nationalized all reserve and National guard units in states that voted for the States Right Party and sent them to Korea after a refresher course in basic training. I was caught up in this call-up. I was a second Lieutenant platoon leader in the 1343 Combat Engineer Battalion. We were sent to Fort Campbell, KY for training before taking a long train ride across the US/Canadian border to Seattle Port of Embarkation. We shipped out on the Marine Phoenix skirting Alaska to Yokohama, Japan. We stopped there long enough to take on fresh supplies.

I took my platoon for a tour of Yokohama and returned to the ship later than was allowed. When the MP started taking names, I told him to charge me with 26 personnel being late. They were with me and I would take the responsibility. I never heard about it again except the Colonel mentioned it in passing.


We landed in Pusan to await our equipment that was arriving on other ships. We were ar a garden spot of Korea. A beautiful Beach and Quonset Huts for quarters. My platoon built a pier while we were there. Many thousands of North Korean and Chinese POWs left from this pier for internment on an island to the south. While we were there, I accompanied the Colonel and other officers to Tague, 8th Army HQ, to get deployment orders. It was on this trip that I decided the war could be won quickly if we gave each North Korean and Chinese soldier a jeep with the horn disconnected. I noticed that the ROK troops drove like crazy and blew the horn of the Jeep to tell others to get out of their way. If the commies all had Jeeps they would soon kill each other.

When our equipment we boarded an LST and headed for Inchon. The tides in Inchon are very high and the port is only open during high tide. We disembarked there and headed north east toward Chunchon, Korea. We set up tents and started building roads, bridges and airstrips. Things went well until the spring of 1951 when the Chinese infiltrated our lines and started forest fires to provide a smoke cover for their new offensive. Our airplanes could not detect their movement. We had to pull up stakes and advance to the rear a couple of times.

After the Chinese had exhausted their supplies the infantry and marines counter attacked and pushed them back of the 38th parallel in most locations except for an area just northwest of Seoul. The war was starting to become a stalemate while we were not allowed to win it, the Chinese and North Koreans couldnt win either.

We moved further north near the Punch Bowl. We supported many artillery groups and the first Marine Division. During lulls in work, I took a trip to Seoul and Inchon looking for parts for a crane. From the number of pictures that I took during this trip, one could decide that I spent lots of time there but I didnt. Just a couple of days. I took lots of pictures of the Korean people, destroyed buildings including the capitol and of Inchon Harbor.

I even took time to attend USO shows with Danny Kaye and another with Jack Benny. Needless to say, thousands of others also attended the shows.

I also visited the front lines several times and saw lots of incoming and outgoing ordinances. I even went to the coast and watched the battleship Missouri bombard the Chinese and North Koreans with 16" or 18" shells about 20 miles away. We maintained the roads in the Punch Bowl and a P 51 and Corsair made emergency crash landings there. I also visited the mobile artillery unit bombarding Hill 1181 on the west rim of the Punch Bowl and watched our airplanes drop 1,000 pound bombs on the enemy.

Christmas time brought lots of snow to our camp and beyond. My rotation came after a nice two week R and R in Kokura, Japan. On my way home, The ship that brought me from Inchon, Korea, landed in Sasabo, Japan. I took a train ride to Yokohama and sailed back to Seattle on the General Anderson. A flight back home included a Boeing StratoCruiser.

I hope that I can never forget the nice folks in Korea. Both the natives and the United Nation Troops. It is an experience that builds character.

Comments: Dear Sirs,

My name is Jeff Daniel, My father James N. Daniel, served with Co A from Aug 1950 to Feb 1952.

He was from Courtland Alabama and went by "Jim" or "Buddy".

He originally enlisted in the Alabama National Guard and when his unit was activated he was sent to Korea.

He held an MOS in demolitions. His Military Record shows that he was involved in some degree with the First Counter Offensive (Jan-Apr 1951) and the Communist Forces Spring Offensive (Apr 1951-Feb 1952).

My father passed away in 1985; due to a divorce I had not seen him since I was 8 years old.

I am trying to locate anyone who might have known him, to find out more about him or the 1343rd Engr Bn in Korea..

If you can help, I would truly appreciate it!

I am a veteran also with 20 years of active service.

Thank you again,

Jeff Daniel, rjdaniel3@sbcglobal.net

Comments: My name is Tom Holton. My dad, George T. Holton served in Korea from Feb. 1952- Feb. 1953. He was injured under a bombed bridge (I assume that it was one he was helping to build) There was a breif writeup in Stars and Stripes Newspaper. My dad has since passed away(12-12-91). He never talked much about his time in Korea, so I do not know when the bridge incident actually happened. He was never presented with a Purple Heart and as most of you would know, his files were destroyed in the fire of 1973 at the record depot. If I can find 3 servicemen that can confirm this story, I will be able to get his Purple Heart. Also, if I can find the article in the Stars and Stripes archive in Washington, that would be proof enough. I have built a website dedicated to my dad and his memory.
