Comments: Stationed at the 21st T-Car in July 1984 to Aug. 1985. Back then most of my friends went to college, I went into the US Army. I made the better choice..Served with a great bunch of people both state-side and in Korea. Also spent three months on Chedu Do with the Rangers, another great group of people. Still having trouble finding out the demise of T-Car ? Some of the best times of my life, stay well, Lundy

Comments: Enjoyed reading the entries. I was the company clerk and mail clerk at T-Car from August 1967 until April 1969 (18 months). I was billeted in the Quonset hut behind the orderly room with the guys from the supply room. (Bob Sisolak and Clarence Reuter and the radioman Ron Ryerson). Had some great times and some below zero times in the winters of 68 and 69. CO when I got there was 1lt Lawrence Guichard and later CPT Robert Lombardi. 1st SGT was Albert Medeiros, later 1st SGT Medeiros then 1st SGT Bice. Times have probably changed but, when I was there the 7-Club in Itaewon was 21T-Cars hangout, we all sat at the upstairs table. Lots of memories. Take care my brothers.

Fond memories of Softball games, Itaywon, and all the Olympic events the Army allowed us to go too. The new base club opened during that time and had the tubes band play for opening night. If anyone remembers that please e mail me at Ral4@Chrysler.com, Would love to see if I remember you.

Comments: 1962-1963 at 21st T Car. Worked for the Master Sergeant at the motor pool office. Our quarters were the quonset huts next to the motor pool and the Korean song Arirang was playing all day long from the village next to the wall. Bob Hope did his Christmas show 1962 and Johnny Cash came through to perform. Great fun at the EM Club and Itaewon (I know - off limits then)
The ships I were on coming into Inchon and leaving Inchon were the USNS Patrick and the USNS Sultan

Comments: While I was there, President Eisenhower died, EC121
shot down by North Koreans we were working overtime at
the Crypto shack trying to keep the South Koreans from
going North to deal with it, crew of the Pueblo
released, (friend of mine from high school in Oregon
was a prisoner, he told me they were beat on the bottom
of their feet with 2X4s so it would not show after the
middle finger incident). Oh, and the Youngson PX burned
down, lots of good deals after the fire. Another
incident that never came to light,,,Warrant officer
that was in charge of the motor-pool shot up the
neighborhood with a machine gun, no one hurt and he was
never reprimanded.

One of the neatest things I ever saw, was the Korean
presidential guard came by one day on 12 old white
Harleys, they were all over 6 feet tall, dressed in
orange jump suits and all had old Korean war grease
guns strapped to their backs. And I had no camera.

When you were an aid in the HQ building you ate in the
Generals mess, three times a day with a menu for all
meals, breakfast was fantastic, steak and lobster at
least once a week, no one stamped your ration cards for
beer and you knew about MPC changes before they
happened. You pulled no duty of any kind, life was good.

Comments: I was assigned to the driver's pool at the Hartell House,located within the eastern half just across the MSR that went through the eastern part of the main compound of Headquarters, which provided lodging for visiting upper level brass and civilian white collars. I also drove KMAG visitors and their staff on occasions. My most rememberable asignment was driving Debbie Reynolds from K-16 to the Officer's mess hall on the Headquarters Compound. Thereafter, a Major, from special services, called the 21st Motor Pool for a seperate sedan to be assigned to Ms. Reynolds while she was in the Headquarters Compound. I returned to the Hartell House Driver's Pool and watched the parade of the Reynolds' Troup travel from one event to another.


I was used to shuttle visitors all over immediate area of Seoul, K-16, I Corp, 24th., 7th., and once to the DMZ. Where I once drove General Clark from the US Embassy, in down town Seoul, to the US side of the truce talk area. I drive a specially marked OD 1951 Chevy with a white roof and hood. I picked up an MP escort around I Corp and followed them into the truce talk area. At US Camp on the DMZ I was near enough to see Charlie siding on the other side. While waiting for the General to conduct he assignment, I was granted permission to look through the scopes to get a really close-up look at Charlie.

Keywords: It has been to long to recall all of the great individuals I came to know and respect during my tour of duty in the 21st., which was located at the north gate of the Headquarters Compound of the 8th., Army.
