Comments: Hi. My Dad, Joseph (Joe) Mariner, was a Corporal in the United States ARMY with the 366th Engineer Aviation Battalion. He was a mechanic, and always had good memories of his time there. Dad was farm boy from Oklahoma, so you can imagine what going to Korea was like! Dad passed away peacefully at home on August 9th, 2015 in Enid, Oklahoma. He had a very good and happy life. If anyone remembers him, or can tell me about his outfit, I'd appreciate it.

Sincerely, Michael Mariner.

Comments: Looking for anyone who remembers my father, PFC Marcelo Lopez of New Mexico. He arrived in Feb 1952 and was assigned to the 366 EAB (no further information available). He was severely burned by hot sand while constructing runway near Masan, Republic of Korea approximately 35 miles west of Pusan (now Busan). Medically evacuated with 3rd degree burns to his entire back and legs to Japan. Looking to obtain information concerning the date he was injured (needed to obtain VA Benefits).

Comments: My father, PFC Herman "Tex" Colyer, served from April 1952 to February 1953 with the 366th EAB. After sixteen or so weeks at Ft Lewis in Washington, he spent a little time in Arizona. Then he was dispatched to Korea on board a naval vessel. The trip to Korea lasted 19 days. Pop said he was so sick of that ship and he could not wait to get ashore. While in Korea, he assisted in various missions such as the construction of air strips and bridges. He was part of a squad of men who were surrounded one night by many enemy soldiers; the firefight lasted several hours. He also had to drive a fuel truck with a corporal to get some fuel where it was badly needed by American soldiers. He remembered that he had to run through the night with the lights off to avoid being seen. Is there anyone out there who remembers my father? He is a great American and is still alive today and is in great shape. He does have trouble remembering names, but he says one of his best buddies was from Minnesota. He remembers the First Sergeant who assigned the night run mission to him; as he recalls the 1st Sgt was from South Carolina and was kind of a small gentleman. Pop has six children, and a dozen grandchildren. He resides in Bruceville, Texas. Please contact me if you know my Pop. Thank you.

Comments: My father, Ronald Faherty, recently passed away. I was given all his old slides from Korea and have scanned them and posted them here:

http://picasaweb.google.com/montanaspf

The slides had index sheets but all of the slides were mixed together so I was not able to tag them correctly. I have included the index sheets, which has some names of men he served with and descriptions but you will have to look through the pictures to match them up. If there was any writing on the slides, I have tagged the pictures.

I found a slide picture he took of a long metal building that had a sign over the door that said "366 ENGINEER AVIATION BN" To the left of the sign was a picture that resembles 2 tigers. To the right of the sign is a shield that has a painted representation of the "Phoenix". The only othe pictures I have are a rock crusher and of a roller being lifted out of a ditch.

Shortly thereafter we were attached to the 366th Engr. Aviation Battalion located @ K1. We removed the PSP and put down an asphaltic runway. Thereafter we moved to K9 and did the same thing before moving back to K1. I could write a book about my experience in Korea during that time. While in Korea, I was PX Officer, Labor Officer, Personel Officer, Base Fire Marshall (The Officers Club burned down during my tour), Public Information Officer, Asst. Supply Officer, Won Sales Officer. and others. One of my best friends was R.A.Martin. alias "Red Ass" or Bob. I have lost track of him and would like to hear if any one knows if he still exists.
