Comments: Col John G Baxter, commander of the 10th Station Hospital, was my Grandfather. COL Baxter retired from the Army in 1963 with almost 35 years of service to the United States Army.
After his retirement he and his wife, Doris Baxter, moved to Anniston Alabama, where he became the County Medical Officer for many years.
Grandad Passed away in the Spring of 1978. I think what I remember the most of his war stories, (he was in WW2 also) was the fact that he was always honored to be the Commander of the 10th Station Hospital in the Korean war and his assocation with the men and women that helped run that hospital.

Comments:    In 1949 the 10 Station Hospital was moved from Fort Totten, New York to Madigan General Hospital at Fort Lewis, near Tacoma, Washington, and was there when the Korean War broke out on June 25, 1950. In October of 1950 the 10th Station Hospital shipped out of Seattle, Washington on the USNS James O'Hara. The ship crossed the 180 Meridian on October 29, and in early November arrived at Pusan, Korea where the 10th disembarked.
   An article from the Stars and Stripes (supplied by John Elskamp) says:
    "At first the hospital personnel were engaged in assisting other medical units until ordered to Chinnampo to establish a hospital. The Chinese break-through occurred while en route and an ambulance convoy of the hospital assisted in the evacuation of Pyongyong. Other hospital personnel assisted the 4th Field Hospital in evacuating and caring for thousands of casualties resulting from the enemy breat-through.
   On December 5, the hospital returned from Ascom City by plain ;and hospital train, arriving in Pusan on December 7.The hospital equipment arrived four days later and the first patients were received December 15.
   By the end of December the hospital had expanded to 750 beds. The first wards erected outside the school buildings were sectional hospital tents, which have been replaced by semi-permanent prefabricated buildings accommodating 150 patients each.
   The 10th Station Hospital is commanded by Col. John G. Baxter of Phoenixville, Pa."
   (Later the name of the 10th Station Hospital was changed to the 22nd Evacuation Hospital, semi-mobile.)

Rohrs was head nurse in surgery. Also served with Cpt. Nickols, Hallerman, Lt. Silvernail, Cpl Harley Hawkins, PFC Fred Warren, Cpt Matheson Lt. Nicki Nicissoal. Hospital commander was Baxter. We often worked eight hours on and eight hours off in surgery. By Jan. 51 the 10th station hospital had handled over 10,000 casualties. One of the most popular men was the mail clerk Murphey.

Comments: I arrived in Korea in July 51 at that time the hospital was known as the 10th Station Hospital I was assigned as a surgical tech. I can remember there were times in Oct 51 we went around the clock, I think we did the best we could. I remember the pre surgury areas had wounded men in the beds and under the beds liters lined both sides of the hallway. We were shut down as I remember during the summer of 52. Late Sept we were moved by train to Chunchon.We set up tents and waited for orders, I rotated home late Oct. after that I have no word of what became of the Unit.
