Comments: Looking for a medical guru that knows how to decode medical
treatment records. My father had knee surgery by the 47th MASH
and his treatment record only shows being on quarter for 7 days
and two procedures done. But no description of the procedure
other than a numbered medical code. VA won't service connect
him cause no one knows what the codes mean on the treatment
record.

Comments: I was assigned to the 47th MASH late June or early July 1953. The unit had been seperated and we were just a small group who assembled in Chunchon to hear that the cease fire had gone into effect. At that time I was a PFC and Company clerk, Radar, I guess. I was with the unit just a short time, maybe only a couple of months and evacuated to a major hospital in Pusan and later to a General Hospital just outside of Tokyo. After about three months in the hospital I was assigned to Headquarter Central Command in Tokyo. I received my security clearance and was supervisor of the Classified Message Center. In November 1954, I was then Staff Sgt., and was flow back to the states where I was discharged December 17th at Ft. Geore E. Meade, Maryland.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone whose accquaintance I may have had the oipportunity of knowing.

Comments: My first assignment to Korea was in 1958. I was assigned to the 560th Medical Company (AMB)(SEP)
My station was at Camp Reed. The 560th and the 618th Clearing Company (SEP), The 47th Surgical Hospital (MA),The 567th Medical Company (AMB) (SEP) and the 37th Preventive Medical CO (SEP) comprised the 1st Medical Bn. (SEP)
At that time the 43rd was located in Oui Jang Bu
The 44th was located in TDC (tang du chang) I hoped I spelled it right.
In 1959 There was a redesignation of the 1st Med Bn. To 168th Med Bn (SEP).The next higher Hq at that time was 65th Med group. The base was located on MO JIN DONG on the bank of the HAN river near what later become Dragon Hill rec area

Comments: In answer to the query about the 43rd MASH, it existed at Camp Mosher, approx. two miles north of I Corp HQ at Camp Red Cloud, Uijongbu, Korea. I served as unit supply sergeant (E-4 "acting jack")in '62-'63. When I arrived in country April '62, the 43rd was attached to the 168th Med Battalion, Eigth Army, but was later transferred to operational control of "I" Corp Group, Camp Red Cloud. There was a medical evac helicopter unit just across the road; they flew the Huey H-1s familiar to the Vietnam era. In fact, part of that helicopter company was preparing to depart for Vietnam in May '63 when I departed the 43rd for CONUS and ETS. We spent a good deal of time on field duty, our big army tent-wards with red crosses emblazoned on top of "MASH" tv fame. I recall Camp Santa Barbara on the "Z" as our alert position.

Comments: My name is Kelley and I am a senior in high school in New Hampshire. I have to write a 20 page report on whatever topic I choose for my english class (it's a requirement for graduating) and my topic is the medical advances made from the Korean War and the doctors and nurses who performed them. I need an interview from someone who was actually working in a MASH unit during the war to complete this project. if anyone is interested please send me an e-mail. The interview can take place online, it would just be answering a few questions, and i could send them to you before hand. So anyone interested, please e-mail me, thanks!

Comments: I was with the 13th Helicopter at Uijongbu from January 1955 to April 1956. I went as a mechanic but wound up in Operations. One of my first trips was to Chunchon where we had a couple of H-19's based on TDY. The 6th Helicopter had left the country by that time. It seems to me that one of the places we flew on a regular basis was the 43rd MASH, about 15 miles or so northwest of Uijongbu. Was there a 43rd MASH, or am I thinking of the 44th? One of the more vivid memories of rescue missions was the time in midsummer of 1955 I believe it was when the air force pilot got lost and flew into the DMZ and was promptly shot down. Our unit was called on to fly in and pick up the wounded pilot - after negotiations at the U.N. in New York to get the pickup approved. Our mechanics worked all day painting giant red crosses on one of our H-19's - this was a demand of the Chinese/North Koreans - that the helicopter had to be marked with red crosses. Our pilots picked up the air force guy and stopped by Uijongbu on the way to a hospital -I think they probably took him to the 121st evac at Seoul. I remember him waveing out the cargo door with a bandaged leg propped up - I have cussed myself over the years for not getting some photos.
