Comments: I was stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany from July 1966 until January 1968. I've
been able to locate 10 of the men that I served with in Service Battery and 3 of
of us have had throat cancer. I was wondering if any more men that served there
during that time or any other time have had that terrible disease. I thought it very
odd that 3 out of the 10 that I've been able to contact had that same cancer. Throat
cancer is what they call a smoker/drinker's cancer and I did neither all my life. I
would like to know if anyone knows anyone that lived at Ledward Barracks and has
had throat cancer. I read that 1% of adults will be diagnosed with this cancer. That's
a small percentage but when 30% of the men that I was able to contact had throat
cancer then I got to thinking that it may have been cause by something in those
barracks. Two of us were in the ammo section and the other was in maintenance.
I also read that asbestos can cause throat cancer. In those building asbestos was
used.

If you can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks
Edward Burton

Comments: I am 86 years old and served with 39th F.A., 3rd Inf. Div.I was a replacement and was in Korea from Feb. 1952 through Feb. 1953..I had been trained as a combat medic, but never was used as such. Instead I was assigned to the Fire Direction Center and was put in charge after the Master Sgt was rotated and ran the
Center for a couple of months until another M.S. Replaced me. then The Sgt in charge of the Liasion Team was rotated I was give the task of running that team.We were in charge of Three Forward Observers who were in support of the 15th Infantry Regiment. My team and I spent all of our tour on the M.L.R. Since there was a shortage of FO's and when the 3rd was relieved were then working with the outfit assigned to our region.As a result we spent time with the 1st Marines, ROKS and Greeks etc..My team consiste of a guy from Hawaii, another from Chicago and another from Cleveland. Cleveland is my home town ..I met Major John Eisenhauer who was the S-2 Officer with the 15th.His father, Dwight D. Eisenhauer-General AND President was the commanding Officer of the. 15th in World War I..
I now live in Southern California and would be nice to hear from any men who may remember me.

Am very proud of his service to this country but know

Sgt. Shin the best Top Sgt in the 3rd Division. We
ran 5 miles Monday through Friday carrying our rifles.
We ran in step and lots of times Sgt Shin would take
someone's rifle giving him two rifles. We would hold
it out with the right hand, then the left hand, out
with both hands, over our head and then let it hang
down to rest. We ran with our boots and not running
shoes, and our uniform minus the shirt. Of course, as
alway a tee shirt. He was a great man. He ritired in

E-5 and above could stay out all night. I remember David Ham. We were the first unit to get the M109 155. I stayed in the Army for 20 years and retired. The 39th was the best years of my Military career. I never met anyone from the unit during the 20 years I stayed in until I was processing out for retirement. I met an E-6 at Ft. Riley after all the years. I retired in 1982. I was the 1st Sgt. of Delta and Service Batteries for a period of 5 years.

Comments: I served in B battery,3'd Gun Bn,39'th Field artillery at Dachau, Germany, in 1959. We were a seperate battery armed with M-65 280 mm rifles-- Atom Annie.
We had live nukes without safeguards and a missiont to back up Second Geman Corps or the US 11 Armored Cav
( Col. Signeious ). ALso we patroled the Hof Gap with our nukes, sitting astride the classic invasion route from the east-- well ahead of the 4th AD, but behing the 11 ACR, Black Horse.
Battery comanders were Cecil Pounder Davis from Missippi and Bob Weekly, USMA.
I have seen photos of the 280 mm guns in Korea.
Since I was an Armor Officer, and thus untrained in Artillery, I found commnding a 280 Gun an amusing experience, indeed.
My basic degree is from the Citadel and so I studied under Mark Clark who also commanded in Korea.
I resigned from the Army, went to South Carolina Law, rejoined the Navy Reserve and eventually retired as a Capitan of Naval intelligenc in 1994. I supect I was one of the last 280 Gunners in uniform. RHM
