Comments: I just wanted to add that when I was a young lad, I met
a military man who had fought during WW2, I cannot
recall his name, but he was a very interesting fellow
to talk with. I believe he was in the army to the best
of my memory, he told me that while on the battlefield
they were to shoot at anything that moved. During his
watch early one morning just before day break he could
see something slowly moving toward their camp, he shot
it not knowing what it was. That morning on their way
out from camp he looked and saw a newborn baby crawling
over it's mother trying to get to her breast. The
soldier said that was the worst thing he had done and
if there had been more light he wouldn't have killed
her, she was approaching the camp seeking to obtain
some food. He wanted to keep the baby, but it was
against regulations and they had to march right on by
leaving it without knowing what happened to it or it's
mother.
If anyone on this site remembers that, you may know who
that man was, he was from Beaver Dam Kentucky.

Keywords: A long time ago, I cannot remember the name of the army
officer from Beaver Dam, Kentucky.

Thought this may be of concern to someone who remembered.

Comments: Mr. Paterson,
I think you may have been a little brusk with your comments about web site making a mistake. My father whom I was named after was with the 45th Inf. Div., 189th F.A. BN., B Company. He spoke of the 155mm a great deal, but also spoke of the S.F.R. ( squat, fire and run) missions they made late at night in the Korean country side. They would take 2-3 trucks with 105mm ammo, pulling the 105mm and had designated positions preset to pull into, squat, or set up as fast as possible, fire 3-5 rounds as fast as possible, then pack it up and run as fast as they could to the next location. This course of action would draw enemy fire to the position they had just left, the main 155mm battery spotters would try to locate the Korean fire and bring the 155mm fire in to destroy it. Dad spoke of many close calls playing this cat and mouse game with the N. Koreans. Just because you never saw or fired them in 1953 or later didn't mean they didn't use them in 50, 51 or 52 when many others were in Korea using them.
Sincerly,
John E. De Armond II

Comments: Did anyone know my dad, Andy Robert Anderson?

His records were destroyed in a fire at the records building in St. Louis. And he is trying to get together some information regarding proof that he was in the Korean War. He does have his DD214, but that is not enough according to the people in Washington. Man, Wash. DC is being so difficult to put it lightly. This all has to do with my father having Post Traumatic Distress Disorder. Which according to DC he doesn't have enough proof that he was around enemy fire during the period of August to September 1953. (I think that is what they are looking for, for evidence to show that, that caused the PTDD)
Does anyone remember this time ?? It makes me so mad. He fought for this country and they are giving him the run around. And he even got a medal.

Any information would be welcome. Plus , I am sure my dad would love to talk with any of you guys.

My dad lives in Sullivan , Missouri. not far from St. Louis. Where he, my mom and all of his 6 kids grew up.

If anyne has any advice, or has gone though this type of trial trying to get the governement to help , please let me know. Or if you just want to talk to my dad. That would be great. Oh, by the way, my dad was kissed by Marilyn Monroe when she stopped off for a show in Korea.

Here is my contact information. My dad doesn't have email. Oh, and he is moving to Texas (outside of Dallas) next month. Most of his kids are here. So if anyone knows of any reunions going on here , please let me know. I would love to go with my dad.

Thank you so much!

He is still alive and only recently has begun to talk about his experiences in Korea. He would love to hear from anyone who was there during his service time. My parents have never fully embraced technology and he suffers from significant loss of hearing, therefore regular postal mail is desired.
