Comments: I am sad to see Dwain Scott, Scotty, died in 2011.
As a Major stationed at Ft Leavenworth I had an
opportunity to meet him. Eventually I published an
article about the combat action of A/52nd Artillery
at Osan (TF Smith) in Field Artillery Magazine, July
1999. The article is based on Scotty's telling of
the battle from his perspective as the commander.
Later I met many Soldiers from A/52 and TF Smith at a
reunion for the 24th Infantry in Phoenix, AZ. What
an honor that was.

Comments: These comments I made in December of 2004:
My father, Alfred Beasley (1SG, AUS Ret.) is
still alive. He recently celebrated birthday #86! He
lives just outside of Key Gate in Lawton, Oklahoma. I
would like to hear from anyone that remembers The
BEAST. He was supply sergeant and later first
sergeant of Svc Btry, 52nd FABn just before the
outbreak of the Korean War. As I understand, he was
the only combat veteran (WWII) in Svc Btry. My only
independent memory was of Sunday morning, June 25,
1950 when the CQ of Svc Btry came into our house at
Camp Hakata and yelled Beasley, RED ALERT! We were
eating breakfast and my mother started crying. My
father was gone in less than two minutes.
My father is gone now. He died on December 31,
2005. He often spoke of how good an officer, Lt.
Dwain L. Scott was. From what I read below, my
father was not the only one to have that sentiment.
Another note: The SVC Battery guidon is now at
the 24th INF DIV Museum in Ft. Stewart. I presented
it to them in December of 1991. It is on display,
now.

Comments: My father, Alfred Beasley (1SG, AUS Ret.) is still alive. He recently celebrated birthday #86! He lives just outside of Key Gate in Lawton, Oklahoma. I would like to hear from anyone that remembers "The BEAST". He was supply sergeant and later first sergeant of Svc Btry, 52nd FABn just before the outbreak of the Korean War. As I understand, he was the only combat veteran (WWII) in Svc Btry. My only independent memory was of Sunday morning, June 25, 1950 when the CQ of Svc Btry came into our house at Camp Hakata and yelled "Beasley, RED ALERT!" We were eating breakfast and my mother started crying. My father was gone in less than two minutes. Anyone remember? Let me know, please. Thank you.

Comments: I am entering this on behalf of Lacy Thrash, my stepfather. He enlisted in 3/51 and served in Japan and in Korea until 3/53. He was with the 24th Infantry Division, 52nd Field Artillery Battalion, Battery B. He served as a 105 mm howitzers cannoneer, fire direction and liaison director, and field wireman. He received the Armed Occupation Medal – Japan, Korean Service Medal, 2 Bronze Stars and a United Nations Medal. Unfortunately, he can not recall why he received the Bronze Stars. He does speak frequently about the numbing cold, a fierce battle holding the line between Seoul and the Yalu River; volunteering for an especially hazardous duty laying wire; and 8 consecutive months on the 38th Parallel. Lacy is from the Houston, Texas area; and now lives outside Dallas. He was a short man with dark hair and very outgoing at that time. He is very proud of his time with the 24th overseas. And although he can not recall many of names of the men he was with, I know he would love to hear from anyone who served. I have listed my e-mail, and if you respond by email I will be certain to contact him immediately. Please indicate you are a Korean Vet in the subject line.

Thank you and God bless each of you for your selflessness in serving America.
Sherry
