Comments: I was attached to the 2nd Infantry Division the day A CH-47 Helicopter was downed due to a navigational area resulting in the loss of 3 crewman in July 1977


I met CWO Glen Schwankee 3 days later at the 545th General Dispensary at Camp Humphries

He looked sad and was kind enough to answer a question

Was it worth going to War over

He said No

Comments: I was working with other women at 560th. Our small base was almost compromised in 1975 when I was there. I remember well the commotion down at the front Gate. I later was restationed at the 121st Evac Hospital in Youngson in Seoul. Cindy was my roommate just before I left the 13 month tour. I think she worked in other then a medical MOS...but I am not too clear now about her duty job.

Comments: I was assigned to the 560th ambulance unit from 1992 to 1993. I was rotated out on temporary assignment to Camp Edwards and Camp Red Cloud. While at CRC a fellow soldier and friend was killed in a hit and run right outside the Camp Edwards gate while going to the ville to celebrate his birthday. He had been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer several months before but had opted to stay in Korea and finish his tour. He had one week before he was heading home. I'm trying to find any information on the date he was killed. I didn't find out for at least two weeks. I've tried searching it with no luck. He didn't go by his last name which was Neal/Neil, first name Gary. Any help would be much appreciated. Every year around September this hits me hard. More so now because my ex sister in law who I'm very close with has stage four colon cancer that has spread to her lungs. I need to know exactly when he died so I can grieve properly and not for the entire season. Again many thanks.

Comments: My name is Jim Murphy. I was a SP4, 91B20, stationed
at Camp Mosier from March 73 to May 74. I pulled many
shifts at the 43rd, transported patients from the
3077th on the hill down to the 43rd, and drove many,
many miles in those ambulances transporting patients
to and from the 2nd and 7th Infantry Division
outlying camps to the 43rd for treatment. I still
remember the giant blown up photo of the cast of the
TV series M*A*S*H* that hung on the wall just in back
of the ER counter. The ambulance company was located
at the south end of the compound. We always had the
ambulances lined up just past the last row of quonset
huts so they were ready to roll at a moments notice.
We worked, played, ate and slept in those quonset
huts and drove the wheels off those old ambulances. I
also served at Camp Howard and Camp Humphreys for
short periods. At Humphreys we ran new Dodge vans. I
still remember those Korean winters as being
absolutely bone chilling cold. Rosie's may have
turned out to be famous but I really don't remember
it being all that much fun ... and that OB beer was
barely drinkable. Just in case your health may be
starting to wane, as mine is, I've learned that the
Army has admitted to utilzing Agent Orange, as well
as other dioxin based compounds, all around the DMZ
from '68 to '71.

Comments: I want to remember motor pool Sgt.Stout.
He was electrocuted while taking down a TV antenna. He married a South Korean lady and was accidently killed about a week or so before he was due to rotate back to the states.
This was in l974. I have lost track of the guys I served with but now my son has joined in U. S. Army last November 2003 and is in basic training at FT Jackson, SC. Now I am reliving my days in the army again.
