Service or Relationship: 1955-1958

Comments: I arrived in ROK by ship aboard the USS General Mann in July 1955 and rotated home in Oct 1956. Our departure was from Ft Lewis, WA by ship with a stop in Japan and then to Inchon and Ascom City, then to the 24th ID Replacement Company prior to assignment to Foxtrot Company which was deployed in the Spoonbill Area just north of the Imjin River until we were relieved by the 19th Regt in the spring of 1956 to an area near Munsan-ni and Paju-Ri. We were dramatically under staffed. I was assigned to the First Platoon and issued a BAR but later became the Company Clerk. We only had one officer, a First LT assigned to our unit when I first arrived and later reached a strength of a Captain (Captain Heard) and 2 additional 2d LT's. As a company we had less than 100 GI's including all the support staff such as supply, cooks, truck drivers, etc., and about 30 or 35 KATUSA but we were grossly understrength as a Rifle Company. In those days the various deployment or bases were not named such as Camp so and so. From looking at maps it appears to me we were in the area of Camp Custer or maybe Camp Brown south of the Imjin. I've never been able to identify the exact area of our deployment when we were North of the Imjin River but we always crossed the Imjin at Libby Bridge. I understand now the areas north of the Imjin are now assigned to ROK Troops except for a small contingent at Panmunjom and all the military bases in the Munsan and Paju areas have been turned back to the ROK government and all military bases (ROK and U.S) and been dismantled. I've been back to Korea 5 times. On visits in 1993 and 1995 I was able to visit the Paju area and the bases were still there including the "Community Center" near the 24th ID Hq.

I'd like to find out more information about the area north of the Imjin. I do recall the DMZ Police Unit was next to the Foxtrot Company area and the 2d Bn Hq and George Company were across an series of rice paddies between our areas. The only thing in the rice paddy area was a large shower tent.

Our Battalion Mission was to support a delaying action should the NK decide to not honor the Armistice Agreement. This meant we were alerted and deployed to our sector along the DMZ every year around June 27, the Armistice anniversary until we received an "ALL CLEAR" from Division Hq to return to our company area. We were always required to have our weapons at all time except when we went to church where our weapons were stacked outside. The Chapel was in the 2d Bn area mentioned earlier. There was also Officers and NCO Clubs in the Bn area.

I've searched for information about my time in Korea but there is a period of time from that when battles were being fought to a time when the 24th ID was re-deployed to Germany in late 1957 that seems to be ignored. I've even checked the 24th ID Website and Association and they don't mention anything about the time we were there. Don't understand why.

When I rotated back to the U.S. I was assigned to the Hq 67th AAA Group at Ravenna Arsenal near Ravenna, Ohio. We were the Hq of the Niki Missile Sites deployed around Cleveland, OH. We later moved the Hq to the Lordstown Military Reservation near Warren, Ohio and was discharged at Ft Hayes, Columbus, Oh. All the Nike sites around Cleveland, Ravenna Arsenal and Lordstown have all been closed down.

Comments: My father is Richard Deeter, Sr. from Greenville, Ohio. I asked if he had any regrets and he said 1. That he never knew what happened to his interpreter and friend from the Korean War. The interpreter's name is Jin Kye Soo. I even contacted a movie director named Jin Kye Soo and asked if he was a relative, but received no response.
My father and I had a very special bond while I was growing up, which suffered a bit after I moved to TN in 1997. He told me countless stories of the Korean War and his friend and interpreter, Jin Kye Soo. He loved bringing candy to the little Korean children.
My father turned 89 on August 19, 2014. His mind isn't as sharp as it once was but today, 03/23/15, as soon as I told him I needed his Unit name for this article, it came out of his memory immediately as he said, 95th Battalion. War is never forgotten. I have often said whoever wrote M.A.S.H., must have known my father because in the Korean War, my father was the company clerk, loved grape soda and has always been a soft-hearted, gentle person; unless we left the water hose out in the yard.
My father got tears in his eyes many times as he spoke about seeing the trucks pull in with the nude bodies of the deceased soldiers and his job was to type up the letters to the families. I believe he has had post traumatic stress from the sadness of the war and his duties, knowing that his letters to those families were going to bring such sorrow. He has suffered with depression for many years but had the joy of my mother's music.

For anyone who might be reading this and knew Richard Deeter, 95th Battalion, he came home from the war, met and married my mother Kathryn, a concert-level pianist, had 4 daughters (I'm the 4th) and 2 sons, the youngest being Richard Deeter, Jr. He worked for NCR for 30 years, worked for the United Way for a bit and then GM for 5 years until retirement at age 69. We moved to Germantown, Ohio, had a house built, in 1970 where he still lives today. If anyone wants to reach me, please email me at atoast2theheart@yahoo.com Thank you for your time.

Keywords: Brother was Wilbur Deeter, also in the Korean War. My father's nickname was Dick, short for Richard. He would have been known to be the only one not drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes because his religion didn't allow it. But I've seen photos of him surrounded by his Army buddies and it seems like they all loved each other.
