Comments: Greetings,

My father served in Korea with the 453rd Engineer Construction BN from 1949 to 1952. He passed away in 2012. I am doing a family history and contact the VA for military records. Imagine my surprise when I was informed that his records had burned in the St Louis fire. Al they were able to provide was his DD 214. If anyone remembers my father or has access to a unit history, I would be appreciative. I served 17 years myself (Infantry) and I think it is important to include military experience/history in the family story. Feel free to contact me.

Comments: Hi everyone. First of all, I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for your service. My grandfather, Stanley B. Cashdollar served in the 453rd Engineers in 1950-1951, and I was curious if anyone remembered him, or had any stories. He told my father a few, which he has in turn told me, but he never talked much about it. Any info would be appreciated. You can email me at WRCjr42@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Comments: I am trying to reconstruct a medical history for PFC Charles Reynolds who served in Inchon, Korea for 11 months. He is trying to file a claims with the VA concerning frostbite that occurred in the winter of 1951. I need information on anyone from his unit who may remember the weather conditions there at that time or know anyone from the unit that also was frostbitten at that time.

It would also be nice for him to catch up on some old friends after all this time.

thanks,

Comments: One of the tragedies of war is the lie about what happens when it ends. The Hollywood myth that the soldiers who were in the same outfit continue to know each other and talk to each other is just plain bull shit. Actually, it becomes very lonely after a war. One would think that any experience as intense as serving during a war, an experience that never leaves one alone for the rest of their life, would be filled with innumerable discussions with his “buddies”. This is the way the movies portray it, isn’t it? I am 72 years old and in all that time I have never recognized the name or description of any soldier I served with. Judging by the messages on this site neither has anybody else. After a war it’s like a being one rock in a handful of rocks hurled on a beach from the top of a hundred foot cliff. The military should have some established way for soldiers to easily keep in touch with one another, if they choose to. It should be an automatic part of the optional benefits of having been a soldier – being able to share experiences in a way that is convenient, accurate, and supportive. I believe every soldier must have questions about their service that will remain unanswered unless they can speak with others who were there.
