Comments: 1ST LT Billie Dan Richards passed away 12/13/2016. He was CO of Battery C, 3rd AAA AW BN. He was assigned that battery on 4/30/1953 and stayed until September 1953.

Their APO 468 shows their HQ was in Wacho-Ri Korea.

I have been looking over his orders and wondered if anyone might have served with him.

I can be reached at halrichardswhr@gmail.com I have some great pictures of their unit in the field. Happy to share them.

I want to talk with anyone who knew my father, his name
was James Reynolds. He was a tall and skinny white
male. Most people called him Jim. He was from Virginia.
He became a Corporal during his time in Korea. He
crossed the International Time Line during the war.

I do not know what Bn stands for. Can anyone help me?

Also, was this unit part of the 4th Army?

What does the "3rd" stand for or represent?

My father was a Quad-50 gunner on a half-track, and recently passed (they are now both deceased). I am looking to see if anyone remmebers him, has any photos or stories about either one of them, or locations where they were stationed while there. My dad never told me specifically where he was located, but did say that they were pulling security detail for the arty as well as a MASH unit nearby.

Bless all of you for your service in this 'forgotten war'. You have certainly not been forgotten, nor has your service to this country.

Comments: I was wondering if by chance anyone might remember someone named Felix Santiago. He is my father, and I have been trying to find out more about his experiences in the Korean War. During his time in Korea he was in the 3rd Division, D Battery, 15th AAA Automatic Weapons Battalion. He was shipped to Korea in Jan 1952, and was discharged in late 1952. I have a copy of the discharge papers, but it is difficult to read.

If anyone knew him, or can give me more information about the unit, I would appreciate it. Also, does anyone happen to know where I can get a good copy of his discharge papers?

Comments: I was aan M-39 driver serving on Outpost
Harry the Fall of 1952 and winter of 1953. I
was at the Kumsong Salient the evening the
ceasefire took place. It was a memorable
evening. The artillery on both sides was
furious all day, neither side wanting to have to
haul ammo back, so at six P.M. the sudden
silence was deafening. I shall never forget that
experience!! Then from down the line, one
could hear the cheers as each battery
celebrated. I remember that a field artillery unit
had been overrun at Kumsong, they had to
spike their guns and retreat. We arrived along
with elements of the third infantry to bolster the
line. I believe the artillery unit may gave been
the 555th but I'm not sure. I remember several
names from that time, Held, a kid from Iowa,
Tom Baden, Ritchie from Loma, WI.
