Comments: My father, John A. Abernathy [9-14-28 to 03-18-00] was a Wolfhound. That's about the only thing that I know about his service in Korea.

He was living in Chattanooga, TN when he was drafted by the US Army [approx. March 1951].

He went to Ft. Jackson, SC for basic training. In the summer of 1951 [July?] he traveled by train from Ft. Jackson to Chicago; and then from Chicago to Seattle.

He boarded a troop transport in Seattle. I don't know for sure whether the ship stopped off in Japan on the way to Korea. He arrived in Korea during the summer [August?] of 1951. I don't know how long he served in Korea, or where he was, but he definitely saw combat.

My father never talked about his experiences in Korea, so I was reluctant to ask any questions, even though I was very curious.

I found out years after he died, [from my Uncle], that my father was awarded a medal in Korea. My father was never wounded, so it couldn't have been the Purple Heart. Could it have been the Bronze Star?

I have so many questions that I hope to get answers to. A few of them:


* Does anybody remember a John Abernathy from Chattanooga, TN?

* Where did the Wolfhounds serve in Korea from summer 1951 to mid-to-late 1952?

* Is there any way that I could get the names of troop transports that departed from Seattle, WA in the summer of 1951?

* Do the Army have the names of *all* men that were awarded medals?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I'm t.c. Son of a Korean War Veteran. Trying to find an official copy of discharge papers. You know the fancy letter kind. He was Honorably Discharged from Co E 27th Infantry Regiment on 25-Feb-1955. I tried the National Personnel Records Center but they can't locate, due to a fire.

If I can't find the original, I was hoping someone out there would have one that I could make an exact duplicate copy, and fill in his pertinent information. So he could have that special document.

Respectfully,

Comments: My name is Tyler Bua. My grandfather, Paul Anthony Bua, served in Korea from June of 1951 to around Sept of 1952. Unfortunately he passed away on Sept 01, 2007 from lung disease. I regret not asking more of him while he was around about him time in the army although I was young at the time. I am currently an E-5 Sergeant in the Army serving in Korea. My grandfather was my main motivation to enlist and serve my country. I am trying to do research and learn more of his whereabouts during his time in Korea as well as more info on his unit. I believe he was either in the 25th infantry or 27th infantry division. All that my grandmother remembers in the nickname, Wolfhounds. I believe he was a 81 mm mortar man. My grandmother also told me that the ship he arrived to Korea on was named General Black. Anything will help.

Thank you all for your brave service,

Comments: I am trying to find information for Robert Eugene Willits. He enlisted in Mar, 1949 and was discharged 25 June, 1953.

Mr Willits first served in the Korean War with HQ Battery 25th Division Artillery as a surveyor. He was injured on return from Taegu. After he was well enough to go back out, he asked to transfer to the 27th Infantry where he and a B.J. Williams were put with G Company and another Soldier, Bob became an FO and was killed in action.

Mr Willits was injured as he creasted hill 101 at the Mason Pusan Perimeter with steel entering the side of his face. He was patched up from this and sent back out.

While on another attack, he was told that a motar shell or artillery hit a tree above him. He remembers being put on a truck or train and someone named Lefty telling him he was a lucky SOB.

To this day, the above is all he can remember. If you knew Mr. Willits, please contact me. I am trying to obtain as much information for him as possible for the time he has lost in his memory for this period of time.

He also did some boxing that he passed on to his son and daughters who have handed it down to his grandchildren. We also have mult. medical persons in the family from CNAs, nurses, teachers, to office workers. His past influenced us without his going into the profession himself.
He didn't talk a lot about the battle until the end and then as I was looking it up I found out why, He went through a lot at a young age. Just wanted to share with others who had gone through this and father who had.
As he was dying I spoke to him of see the guys from the army and going to have a smoke and sharing the good old days with each other. Dad was 83years old and the 3 years he spent in the army were always foremost in is memory.
When I get all these picture on disc I would like to share them with you and maybe you can help me understand the sequence better.
Thank-you

Comments: I am trying to help my father find his buddies he served with in the army. He has
been looking on his own for awhile and has found a few, and he is hoping to find
more.

My father's name is Clipper R. Thigpen. He served in the army from from August 1948
to May 1952. He served in Japan in the 32nd infantry regiment and in Korea (1950) in
the 27th Infantry Regiment, 7th division (Wolfhounds)(if memory serves him correct).

If you have any information leading to anyone that knew my father or if you were with
him at this time please contact him or E-mail me at melodiesandtunes@gmail.com , and
I will pass it on to him.

He remembers Chadwell, Elmer Kassinger in the 32nd infantry, Sgt. Moss, Sgt.
Vandergriff, Sgt. Mickles, Lt. Trubby , Hixon, Francis Carter, Steve Crater, Cpl.
Jack Dotson, Pfc Willis, John Stephens, Cpl. Shifflet, and Sgt. Shelton.

He has many, many photos but memory fails to remember all the names. He remembers
lots of stories about all the photos and wants! to find as many of his buddies as
possible.

Please respond if you can give us any information. You may find another post just
like this one but it has the wrong e-mail on it, I can no longer access that e-mail.

Thank you!

Comments: My father served in Korea during the last of 1952 and the

majority of 1953. He was from Eastern Oklahoma - Kinta, Stigler

and Muskogee. I recall as a child a visit, at our home in

Muskogee, OK, from a member of his unit - Saunders or Sanders is

a very vague and possibly very incorrect recollection.







Dad died of cancer in 1978. I would appreciate contact from

anyone who knew him.

Comments: My Brother, John W Ledbetter, went to Korea in 1951 as pvt,was a
Wolfhound in the rough times at the front. He died at the age of
50 yrs old with a liver disease that I always felt was the
results of chemical spray in Korea. He progressed through the
ranks as a NCO and then received a battlefield commission to Lt.
in the 16 months he was in Korea,was wounded 2 times,also
received Silver and Gold Stars for his actions.When I tried to get
his record for the service he perfooed I was told his records
was destroyed in a fire in the archives. In fact, in my contacts
with the archive they were insulting in their statements. After a
Congressional appeal they reissued his medals. We had pictures of
him and buddies during all his duties . All we were asking for
was his perfooance while serving in Korea for family history.
Col. Hackworth of FOX News was in the same operations as John and
knew my brother well, but passed away with the same ailment as my
brother before he could help me with information.
If anyone has information to contribute to our research will be
greatly appreciated.
THANKS!!!!
