Comments: Sgt. Dock C. Dodd was in Korea from 1952-1953 and was wounded by an artillery round and was on a Navy ship off the shore of Korea. Sgt. Dodd is 86 years old and does not remember too many details and I am working on his Compensation Claim and as of this date he is not getting his benefits. We need any help that we can get as the Army says his records were destroyed in the fire in St. Louis and they have no record of him in Korea or anywhere. NMount cousio records of him. We are seeking any help or assistance that anyone has to see that this veteran gets what he deserves. He has shrapnel in his body and his health is getting worse, if you can assist please contact me asap.

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: Served in Baker Company as a rifleman, then was yanked out to take over the
Countefire Platoon which was attached to the Headquarters and Headquarters
Co....Our job: to silence enemy weapons. The regiment got the nickname of
the Galahad Regiment because we were regularly thrown into situations
that needed help.
One of the most memorable such moves occurred when we, under cover
of darkness, were pulled back from the front lines, put on trucks and transported
to the train that would take us to Pusan. We were to remove all that would
identify our regiment and we were not allowed to leave the site outside the
city where we were deposited. After about two weeks there, we--under
cover of darkness we were moved to the port and boarded landing craft.
There was much speculation about our destination, much chat about our
heading for another coastal invasion to the north....but, at dawn the next morning,
an officer on our landing craft, opened a sealed envelope and announced our
mission: we were to put down the riots occuring in the prison camp on
the island of Koje-do..
Upon arrival at the beaches of Koje do, we clambered aboard waiting
trucks to head inland to the prison camp....
As we approached, we saw, inside the compunds...huge banners made
from bed sheets, upon which the prisoners had painted the message:
Welcome to the 224 Infantry Regiment..

Keywords: I wrote a novel based ujpon my experiences in the 40th division...it is still
in print. Titled "THE IKON" , it was awarded the James D. Phelan Award
in literature.

Comments: Was initially a rifleman in Company B, but got called back and told that I must
serve in the counter fire platoon, which used equipment to locate enemy weapons
and call fire on them...which position changed when we went to Koje-do Island to
put down prisoner riots and and where our regimental commander broke the news
that only eight of us non-commissioned officers was being paid for our rank.

it appears that many non-coms in hospitals in America whom we had replaced were
still being paid for the positions we now held. Anyway, having tidied up the
mess on Koje-do we returned to the ongoing fray in Korea.

Our regiment had been dubbed The Galahad Regiment for we were moved from one hot
spot to another.

After my discharge I married and entered Santa Clara University. A story I wrote
caught the eye of Naomi Burton, one of the top literary agents, who asked if
I had a novel. I told her I didn't, but would gladly right one. Like the short
story, the novel was rooted in the Korean War experience. It was my way of
putting my combat experience on the shelf. " The Ikon " won the Phelan Award in
Literature the year it was published and is still in print.

Comments: I've got an old canteen that my grandmother had when she had an antique shop here in Northern California about 30-40 years ago. It had a gold wedding ring attached and the canteen is inscribed. On the front says Korea, March 1952, Captain and under that is San Goo but not sure if this is a name or place?, Sniper Ridge, and on the back it says 224th I.F. "Sons of Hell". There is a word above this which has been mostly worn off but the last letters are I think "lc. e" Maybe was a name and it was probably a 3 or 4 letter word that ends in lc. It doesn't seem to be like any US canteen that I've ever seen. Has a wooden stopper and canvass straps. Anyone have any info on anything about Sniper Ridge or maybe this canteen? Just curious if this guy returned home or not since it has a wedding ring on it.
