Comments: An FYI for anyone looking for service records, like DD 214 and such and don't already know.
We who served are forever included in the records at the National Archives in St Louis. Many records were damaged and/or destroyed by a fire in the 1970's. However, many or almost all have been reconstructed.
Family members can access records easily. General Public can access, I believe after 40 years. Might be 50 though. www.nationalarchives.gov

Comments: My Father SSGT- Benigno Ramos served with the 45th Division 180th Regiment Fox
Company 2nd Platoon. He served between 1952-1954 in Korea and he will soon be 89
years old and lives in Puerto Rico. As many Korean Vets he hasn't talked much about
the war just blitz here and there through the years.

He mentioned that the unit got addition training in Japan prior to going to Korea.

He received two Bronze Stars and I would like to find the citation for it. He had
mention about them firing the machine guns and the Chinese as they came down the
hills and it seem that the more they shot the more Chinese came out from behind the
hills. He also said that they did they got a lot of mortar shelling in their
position from the north.

Comments: My father Vine St. Pierre passed in 1989 but I am researching and preserving his service.
He was in training at Fort Jackson, SC from approximately January 1952 to March 1952 and arrived in Korea in May 1952. He was wounded in action on June 4th, 1952 while on patrol in Chorwon. It's my understanding the man ahead of him stepped on a land mine. His records say he was returned to service after recovery (I think in Tokyo), but I'm not sure where. He was separated from service and entered reserve duty on May 22nd, 1953.
I would greatly appreciate any information from this time period. I have pictures of the area/camp and some with people but they are not labeled--except for one that says Sgt Colff on the back. It would be wonderful to identify my father's friends. He never wanted to talk about his experiences.

Thank you!

Comments: I am the son of Korean War Veteran Vincent Joseph Cupo, sevice #
51025107. Looking to find the date/place and details to corroborate my
Father's account of his being wounded in action while riding in a
weapons jeep struck by a mortar. He was found unconscious and said
many if not all riding with him were killed. He said his Sgt was killed, but
didn't give me any name. He was treated and sent back to battle. He does
not recall any MASH unit as part of his treatment, which I find odd. I
would like to pursue a Purple Heart for his being wounded in battle. I
hope you can assist me. Thank you!
