Comments: I'm a writer currently working on a book about the Korean War. I'm looking to contact a veteran from Tallahassee who served in the 187th RCT. I met him in a Wel-mart parking tol briefly but failed to get his name. He saw my VFW cap and we started a brief but rushed conversation after a spotted a Korean war sticker on the bumper of his pickup truck. A third veteran joined our quick conversation and it was only after we parted that I realized I did not know his name.

On his first jump into Korea, his legs were broken after a fellow trooper was killed by ground fire shortly after they bailed out from for the AF transport plane. The chute of the dead trooper drifted under him and sucked the air from his own chute so his legs were broken on contact with the battlefield. He was wounded after landing but managed to stay in the battle until the unit was relieved.

I'm Mick Jett, author of the historical novel Knowing Daniel and the true-crime short book My Friend the Felon.

If anyone remembers who he is, please e-mail me. I know this is a long shot but I would welcome contact with any member of that brave 187th unit.

Cheers,

Mick

We have a letter from a Colonel Baxter from the Headquarters 10th Station Hospital dated June 24th 1951 giving this information and saying he was awarded the Purple Heart but it was not issued as they said it was not available at this hospital. We would very much like to have the purple heart to give to our son ( Iam in my late 70s) and any more information you have regarding his death and why he was awarded the Purple Heart. I was a much younger brother and remember Denis leaving for America in 1948.

Comments: Greetings fellow veterans and family, my name is William F. Strohman and I was a member of the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team which was part of the 11th Airborne at the time. We where stationed at the U.S. Army Base Camp Chikamauga, Beppu, Japan in the Southern end of Japan. Our regiment was called out and we where told that we were heading to Korea. The brass from the 187th then said they need 200 volunteers; so I volunteered. I am looking for some of the other 199 volunteers outside of myself that I hope to get into contact with and confirm the dates of when this happened. I approximate Feb 1953 to May 1953. The brass then has us 200 volunteers flown to Seoul, Korea.

General Westmoreland came out to let us know we would be making a combat jump into a North Korean prison camp to get a General out and back into the U.S military hands. General Westmoreland then went around to each volunteer and put a yellow jump scarf around each man's neck and saluted us individually. Several hours later General Westmoreland came back out of the TARMAC and informed us that the jump was called off by the Pentagon because it was considered suicide.

Thank you for your time and I appreciate any help linking me up with the men from my unit and/or any of the other volunteers that were with me on the TARMAC in 1953.

My father is John Arlen Meacham & served in the 82nd airborne during Korea. He never saw combat as their jump was cancelled as they were on the tarmac & the war ended. If you need any information I would gladly put you in touch with him. I also would like to say that it's a long shot but he had an entire photograph album of his time in the service & while they were stationed in Japan that was stolen. A long shot but worth the ask. If anyone has any idea of where these photos might be feel free to contact me through the e-mail provided.

Comments: I would like to communicate with anyone who might have served with my uncle who served in the 187th ARCT. He was Company Commander for H Co 3rd Btn when the conflict began. He was promoted to Major and became G-3 for 3rd Btn for the duration. I am researching him for a family biography and need to fill in some blanks.
I would greatly appreciate any help with this endeavor.
Thank you in advance,
Scott Crombie

Comments: My father was a paratrooper, both knee caps blown off, purple and bronze medals. I know very little about him, the PTSD was so horrible for him that I rarely saw him while growing up. I'm looking for any information on him, or anyone that knew him.

Comments: Joined this site many years ago to find buddies for my Grandfather Frank Carrillo and Art Garcia. Sadly they are both passed on but not forgotten. My Grandfather passed away last year in November. As I was helping cleaning up his house I found the western union letter his parents received. On July 19th, 1953 he was seriously wounded by artillery fire during an attack by opposing forces. He sustained chest and leg injures. Due to the severity of his injuries his legs had to be amputated. My Grandfather never complained about his condition for all the years I knew him. He was a living legend and will continue to be my inspiration. I hope to join the service in his honor. Thank you all for your service.
