Comments: Arrived at 567 ,August 69 as ambulance driver/ medic. Made runs to 121st hospital on regular basis. In February, 70 went TDY to 335 Maintainer/ 2&71 missle at Camp Jonathan Williams as their “Doc” , making daily runs to Camp Howze. Captain said, I only want to see you on payday. I worked for myself and soon found out that being only a Spec 4 but as their “ Doc”, I had the clout of an officer because of how all the men relied on me for medical aid from the Aid Station. Men would say, if no runs today, Doc, take us down to Yongsan to the big PX. Lot of good memories of time served. Drove 10,000 miles with no accidents. Had to get Korean drivers license. Filed Agent Orange claim after Prostate cancer in 99’, was denied 3 times because I was not on DMZ and no actual proof of contact.

Comments: As a soldier that served at the 43rd Surgical Hospital, I look back with fond memories of the experiences I had and thank each and everyone I served with for making this the most pivotal time of the 39 years I worked in the surgical field and its' related areas. The responsibilities I was given, being taught to perform circumcisions, sew up lacerations and circulating duties made me want to do even more in the medical field than I had ever dreamed of and I must say that I became very good at it. I retired out of the Army Reserves, after spending nine years active duty, and I retired from working in surgery in the VA system. I also worked as a travel nurse, all contracts working in surgery, for ten years. I had the privilege of working in hospitals from Sebring, Florida to Portland, Oregon in those ten years and on some occasions, bumped into other nurses, techs and doctors that I had worked with in years past.
The main reason I am on this site now is that I talked with the past Hospital Commander, then LtC. Hubert T. Servis, MD, just this afternoon, 10/11/2017. After over 43 years it was as if we both had been transported back to our time at the 43rd SHMA and we talked of several of the experiences that we shared together there. I hope that if anyone else reads this and was there at the same time as I was, that you try to make contact and we can talk of our time there.
Being a long time member of the U.S. Army and having worked with so many good people along the way, I know it has made me a better person and I would not trade one second of the time I spent within the Army for anything.
Lastly, I would like to thank 1Lt Margaret Plummer for her professionalism, patience and teaching that she offered all of us O.R. techs while we were there. She had a profound influence on me, as well as any of those who would listen and hear what she had to offer us. She was a very mature individual that all of us could look up to for guidance when it came to working in surgery.

P.S. As I remember, the two dogs that had the run of our compound, Camp Mosier, were named Bandit and Shit.

Comments: I have a photograph of my wife's uncle sitting in a Jeep, in Korea. The front bumper has the logo43 HSM CLR 8. His name was Peter Chuckrey and served as a corpsman in the Korean war. His photo's include winter scenes and GI's with weapons and other members of his unit. Unfortunately he died of severe injuries due to a drunk driver hitting him head on. As a vet I respect his service in Korea. He never spoke of his service time as many of us vets don't.
I don't know which Division his unit was attached to, but it was in action. He had two brothers that served in WW2 and both survived. One was in the AIr Corp in the 8th Air Force, Kimbolton England and the other in the surface Navy and went through the Okinawa campaign.
There are several of his photographs that I could forward to a unit archive if one exists.

One of the funnier moments, was when the newspaper came and did a piece on our unit, and refused to call him by his name in the article; the writer thought it would be funnier (and cleaner, maybe) to call the poor ol' fella 'Crapper John',...

I was one of the crew chief we had about three of use that alternated 24 hour shifts. we had four pilots that also rotated shifts. maj. Edward Haswell our commanding officer and pilot three others. cap. Marshall, cap. Watts and cap. Livermore. that chopper was in the air all the time. in January of 68 the pueblo was captured by the north Koreans, the crew was held till dec. 68. our company since we were the only medevac unit in the area,along with a Chinook unit for 2nd infantry assisted with the pic up and delivery of the crew to the hospital at the 43nd. I was on duty that day. I was crew chief for maj. Haswell. as a crew chief I helped get the crew into the Chinooks, we were told not to talk to them. they needed to be debriefed. you could see on there faces they were glad to be on there way home,it was a proud moment for me that ill never forget. My time with the 377th med. co. was some of the best times of my life. even though we all talked about how short we were when it was time to leave. I think a lot of use was sorry to leave.

Unit: 1/31 INFANTRY CAMP LIBERTY BELL

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: My fondest memory of Korea involved my being shot accidentally by one of my own guys. Fond you say? Read on, dear reader, read on.
It was around the Fourth of July, 1973. Guard post Oullette inside the DMZ. I wont go into the events leading up to this, or who was responsible, but some of the guys were getting a little twitchy in the bunkers looking out into the zone at night. Loading up weapons that really didnt need to be loaded up, and forgetting to unload them. Like grenade launchers. With machete rounds. (Really ! You know, I just dont remember the North Koreans rushing our Positions last night!)
We were in the main bunker down below where we slept. When the thing went off, I had no idea what had happened. I was literally knocked off my feet. I had caught a round (about the size of a .22) from a grenade launcher that somebody forgot to unload. Another person was taking it out to his post and accidentally hit the trigger. I was deaf for some time due to the enclosed space. Guys came in, jabbering and pointing at me, and I could see their lips moving but couldnt hear a thing they were saying. They took my right boot and sock off, and there it was: the entry wound and a small trickle of blood, but no exit wound.
They carried me out of the bunker and up on top. The medic who attended me (Hufty, a really great guy) asked me if I wanted some Morphine. I declined, it really didnt hurt much at all. Yet.
They radioed for the Medovac and flew me down to the last MASH hospital left in Korea, the 43rd. The movie MASH had come out in 1970. As they wheeled me into the surgical unit, I saw a huge poster on the wall. It was a blown up photograph of the entire cast from the movie, and each of the cast members had signed it. And it was like the people who staffed that unit were trying to live up to the reputation from the movie. A very funny group of people. From the minute I got there until the day I left (I milked it for almost a week) I was treated like royalty. I think I had STEAK for dinner 5 times. It was just a whole different world down there.
They had given me a local anesthetic to numb the foot, no general to knock me out. There were xrays and probing around in my foot, more xrays and more probing. They cant find the thing. After about a half an hour of this, Im getting a little uncomfortable. My squirming isnt making their job any easier. (And, I swear this next part is the absolute truth). One of the docs says to an orderly, Go get nurse &.. A few minutes later, in walks a great big blonde nurse, a second lieutenant, with the biggest rack on her I have yet seen to this day. The doc whispers something to her. She looks at me and just smiles. She came over next to me, unfooed her blouse, bent over the operating table and put them right & in & my &. face.
It worked, because the next thing I remember was them showing me the round they took out of my foot rolling around in a stainless steel pan. My initial thinking was  These guys are pretty funny, But I dont think they know what theyre doing !
Shows you just how wrong you can be sometimes.
In the days after the surgery while I was still down there, I kept asking everybody about the nurse, but nobody could seem to find her. (No, really, I just want to express my very sincere gratitude for what she did for me!) I dont know. Maybe they didnt want me fraternizing with an Officer.
They flew me back up to the zone in a regular Huey, not a marked Medovac. As we hit the Liberty Bell Helipad, out rolls the captain in his jeep. As I am getting out of the chopper, he has his right arm up to me in a salute. (The LOWER rank always salutes the higher up first, then the higher rank salutes back, right?). He has no idea why a chopper is landing unexpectedly. He is thinking some big brass from down south is coming up to the Camp. I salute him and smile. He sees it is only me and his face just drops. How in the hell does a private rate his own helicopter back to the camp? I made few friends at the MASH. Which I had. A three and one half Hour ride in the back of a deuce and half over bad roads was just not going to cut it.
That was the only time I got to ride in his jeep. And I certainly didnt tell HIM about the Nurse. That hospital food was awful!

Didn't like the mobile part when we went on field excercise, but had fun in the more relaxed military atmosphere of a hospital setting. Trips to 121st Evac in Seoul were once a week and some TDY to Pusan attached to a Marine Unit as a medic. ( they were short Navy Corpsmen.) Stilll think it was the coldest place I ever spent a winter and when I left in 1959 Seoul was a shell of a city. I want to go see how it has changed. I admire the way the South Koreans have made it a modern metropolis. Wouldlove to hear from any guys I served with!

was down at Battalion as a Clerk and the Special Forces guy was

Motor Pool. We did daily stuff in our secondary MOS and every

fourth day had the duty as medic. A system of buzzes let us

know what kind of flight mission was in order. When the balloon

went up all of us could end up working the choppers. Like when

the infiltraters came across the DMZ or the Honest John landed

Late-night pinochle games in the barracks with a reading lamp

Clint Himes yelling "Sergeants suck!" during calisthenics. Everyone had
to do extra pushups because of that.

Gunnar Pape conducting German lessons which counted as training.

The poisonous snake brought in with the GI who got bit by it, that we
preserved and mounted. Our candy-ass Training Sergeant was afraid
to put it on display without some officer telling him it was OK, so it
never got displayed.

Digging a drainage ditch around the orderly room for two weeks for a
comment during a pre-IG inspection.

Assisting with a spinal tap on Ward One when the generator went out -
- we completed it using a flashlight.

Keeping a comatose patient completely packed in ice from the Ward
Two icemaker all night until his 105-degree fever came down. He was
OK a week later.

A junk metal collector who was injured near a practice range. He was
admitted with a complete, unexploded howitzer primer lodged against
his spine. You could read the printing on it in the X-ray. They
removed it in the ER.

Comments: I was a nurse, 1st Lt., during the Korean War 1953-54. The coronation
of Elizabeth II happened and the Australians had a big party. The
hospital burned 12-23-53. We moved the MASH to Uijongbu. We
treated a little Korean boy who suffered a ruptured spleen when he was
hit by one of our trucks. There was a plane crash the day they signed
the truce.

Here are some names from that time: Kathy Evans, Father Brady, Bill
Sampson, Bill Kreite, Mario Fortemato, Ernie Cerasuro (sp?), Jerry
Hansbro, Major Park, Alice Heilfurth, Thelma Hadlock, Riffle the
bartender, Dora Stohl, Bill "Cookie" Cook - a chopper pilot, Fred Reed,
Mary Riley, Mary Molicka, Col. Marshall, Carol Arnold, Art Duderian
(sp?), Winette Paul, Jackie Golden, Jim Dixon, Bill Sampson, Bill Williams,
Lt. Mariat, Maj. Peters, Marion Blevin, Laray Batlin, Mary Ann Del Camelo
(sp?), Sidney Beauxis, Phyl Fleschler.

Would appreciate news from anybody from that time, especially about
Cookie the chopper pilot and Mary Riley. Thank you.

Comments: The 43rd was my first duty station out of medic school at Fort Sam. Because of the Pueblo incident and incursions of the North into South Korea, everyone in my class (except for about 10-20) was sent to Korea instead of Viet Nam. Remember well the bumpy truck ride to Camp Mosier; this just after getting a gamma globulin shot in each cheek. First assignment was second shift in the post-op intensive care ward. From there I worked in the lab and finally the Clinic/ER. I learned so much. The medical staff were willing to teach you what ever you wanted to learn. My time in Korea was the best time I had in the service. I had a lot of friends, both enlisted and officer; although the latter was elusively the medical staff. Can only remember two names: Gus Pappas and 'Nick' Bickner. Both from Detroit. Which is one big reason why I ended up in Michigan. Would love to hear from anyone stationed there in '69.

Comments: I was at the 43rd from Spring of '72 to Spring of '73 as OR Tech and also worked in the ER. It was an experience that has had no comparrison in my life. The TV series, MASH, began while I was there and for some time I corresponded with their publicist, Will Fowler, whom I told about Rosie's. The rest, as they say, is history. That's my claim to fame. I sent Will some pictures and he wrote back saying that Ron Gackle held his pipe "like a rectal thermometer." My best friend was a Nusre Anesthetist named Lt.Richard "OJ" Ojeda, from the hospital in Yongsan. I would appreciate emails from any who remember me. Thanks, Mike Proctor

Comments: As my first assignment,the 43rd MASH was the beginning of
my medical career.People like Col Austin and many others took the time and patience to nurture my passion. I look back down that long road and I am honored to have served with such a distinguished unit. Deactivating at Cp Mosier
was like the ending of a good book. We made our mark in history and touched many lives. Now with only time on my hands, it is my desire to return to the Land of the Morning Calm soon and retrieve that time capsule that we buried at that last formation(Camp Mosier),so that those memories may also be preserved forever. Thanks
