Comments: I am Robert E Britt's daughter. I was three years old when my father was presumed missing in action. I think about him often and wish I had had the opportunity to have known him better. My mom tells me all the time how much I look like him. I miss him and wish he was still here to see his beautiful granddaughter's and great grand children.

Comments: My grandfather (Sgt. Joseph Nasiatka) was in the missile attack that occurred on 08/12/50. He survived and was awarded the Purple Heart. I think he was sent home from the injuries. I am looking to see if anyone from that unit is still alive on the East Coast so I can get an exact account of what he never talked about. It's important that my kids (especially nowadays) never forget the sacral ices that made them possible. Please feel free to email me with any accounts or questions. I know very little from my dad's account but I can always get answers. My Grandfather was also in WWII in the same regiment.

Comments: I am compiling a history of my grandfather's time in Korea as part of the 21st Medical Company.

He told a story about having to dig patients into trenches as they were getting overrun until the 555 showed up and lowered their guns (I'm assuming Charlie Brownbag) and gave him time to evacuate his patients.

He believed that the unit that saved him was overrun.
I have tried to find information about this engagement but have very little to go off of.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Comments: I have just found/looked for a sight like this to maybe find out some
info on my father who was in korea and right now i can't remember
exact times. We all always heard him mention the triple nickel, and
we know it was an artillery battery because we have a lot of pictures.
Some pictures though look like he is with a 155 gun. Some
pictures have a whole bunch of guys in it with their ``pet names.
We didn't get a lot of info either, but he told me that at one
time they either lost all their guns, or he just was needed to be sent to
the line carrying a riffle.
I have a good amount of photos to share. He was from
Brooklyn. Trained at Indian town gap p.a.
His favorite story is how he got the pasta company Ronzoni
to send out pasta and sauce,and we have pictures of the guys
making it,so if you remember something like this contact me.
He died 24 December 1990, and was a man's, man. Fun loving
when it was time, serious when it was time. As always we didn't get
many stories, and what we did were ment to keep us away from the
recruitment office.

Once i get my hands on his muster out orders i will have more
info up. Hope someone knows something

Long story short all he seems to want now is a hat with that insignia and can not find one- he is now 80 and I would like to have a hat made for him.

Comments: My father did not talk about his time in the Army but my brother said
that my father told him that he was the only survivor from his
Company during an attack during the war.

My father became an alcoholic after the Korean War and committed
suicide in January of 1978.

I would like to find out if he is due any medals since he told my brother
that he was wounded during the attack.

Thank you.

Comments: Hello, I am writing looking for anyone who served with my father James Stevens in Korea in 1953 thru 1955. He was in the 555 Field artillary division 5th RTC and ran heavy equipment. He shipped out of Seattle, WA I believe in August of 1953 and returned by ship I think around March or April of 1955.
He is still living and would like to hear from anyone he served with.
Thanks,
Kim Stevens
