Comments: Looking for any information or photos of my grandfather, John Quick of
Indiana. He served with the 507th Signal Company on Korea from
1951-53 I believe. He was a teletype. I saw on a much older message board that SGT Dennis Ambrose was searching for him in 2005 and again in 2009 for some type of unit reunion. Unfortunately Mr Ambrose has since passed on 2012.
Did anyone else here attend? Anything is appreciated.

Comments: I served with the 507th from 1954 to 1955. I was assigned to work on the main frame of the telephone exchange located in downtown Pusan. I originally was billeted at Company Headquarters and commuted daily back and forth to the Exchange however, I was later reassigned and billeted at the telephone exchange itself that had a small continent of men as well as a large contingent of Korean telephone operators. I was involved in the phasing out of the Company and was one of the last to leave when the Company was finally phased out. I was reassigned to Inchon where I worked on an individual development project. I can currently only remember the names of a couple of my buddies - Johnnie Kaufman and Richard Frankenfield. My two best memories were R & R in Tokyo and leaving Korea for Fort Devens, MA, USA!

Comments: Hi. My grandfather passed away just before Christmas this last year, and I've finally started going through his personal items.
I found a photo album with a few pictures from when he was in Korea, as well as a small poster of the '507th Signal Co (SVC) The Best Damn Signal Co In Korea.'
Anyway, as I went through the album, pictures were missing. (As a child he'd tell me about each picture, remember the names/faces of both GIs and Korean Nationals he worked with)... One such picture is of him in uniform... the only which dictated his rank.
I'm trying to put together something I can share with my (unborn) child about my grandfather... so I was wondering if maybe anyone knew/remembered him and could tell me more about him, Korea and the 507th in general.
His name is Gerald L. Wescott, I think he might have been a Cpl... not sure when he came stateside but I know he was in Korea during '53.
If anyone has any info please contact me. Thank you in advance.

Comments: Dear 507th Signal Service Company Veterans

The Korean War Veterans National Museum and Library is currently collecting funds for it's new building. It will be built in a central location rather than on the East or West Coast. It will be built in Springfield, Illinois. Several members of the 507th expressed interest in making a group donation in the 507th's name.

I am currently soliciting contributions for this cause. If you wish to join us, make a tax deductible check out to:
Korean War Veterans National Museum and Library
I will gather all the contributions and forward them to the Building Fund with a cover letter to credit the contributions to our organization.
I will set a date of December 1, 2006 as the date I will forward the checks.

We hope you can join this effort and contribute what you can afford. No amount is too large or too small. Many of us intend to visit the Museum when it is dedicated.

Comments: On this Christmas Day, I reflect on the soldiers all over the world and I can't thank enough to those GI's that fought in Korea to save my country, Korea, what an honorable thing! I will always feel so deeply indebted to them all, and especially my heart goes out to those that never made it home. As I was driving home from my in-laws today, I saw a DL that read: "POW Survivor", I have to admit my heart was very heavy/saddened, I can't imagine the pain and suffering he went thru for his country's sake. I wanted so much to give him a salute to show him my deep respect. I give a salute to all the GI's that fought in the Korean War. A sincere thanks, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
