    Comments: From my Dad,

    I'm looking for anything related to this:

    OK, I was in Korea from August to Thanksgiving day November 19, 1951 with L Co, 5th Cav
    Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division. The Chinese had just joined with the North Koreans and were
    pushing us down the penisula. I was a part of a massive troop effort to prevent them from
    taking all of Korea. I joined the Cav just North of Pusan (southern tip of Korea). I rode
    a troop train North maybe 50 miles and then I hoofed it from there. We were involved
    immediately with the enemy with our goal to push them back North. This was ongoing and I
    remember going through the town of Souel. In November I remember we were in the hills like
    the Olympics having to fight for every mile as we proceeeded North. On Thanksgiving day
    1951, I was air evacuated to Japan with Hemorrhagic Fever.

    Dahms. My grandfather, Harold E Reeves of Boonton, NJ also served as an airplane mechanic in
    the Navy during the war. Curious if anyone knew him as well.

    Keywords: Cpl Dahms went missing July 25, 1950, but no one knows what happened after. His name was on
    a chaulkboard at the Moo Hal school in Seoul but there is no record of him after that. Does
    anyone have a relative who made it back and may have been held prisoner with him? I believe
    they were marched north and put on a train.

    Comments: My name is Bradley Sandau and I am looking for information on my great uncle PFC Arnold Hunt from Revillo SD who died 10/4/1951 from a shell fragment near Yonchon Korea. He was in the the 5th Cav 1st regiment. I found your information on www.koreanwar.org.
    My Mother, Janice Hunt, always talks about him and when she does she usually breaks down in tears even today. I'm trying to compile as much information on him as a birthday gift to her.
    Arnolds brother, William Hunt of Revillo SD, was my Grandfather who recently passed away. I inherited a .22 rifle that I recently found was Arnold's and passed to my Grandfather after Arnolds death.
    Any information would be helpful.

    Thank you,

    Comments: I'm trying to find any information I can on my Grandfather's service. His name was Norman Bradtmueller and he was from Fort Wayne, Indiana. He passed away in 2004 and I always knew he served in the Army during the Korean War but I never knew any more details. While working on my genealogy, I decided to try and learn more about my Grandfather's service. Thanks to a newspaper clipping that my Grandma saved I learned he was in the 1st Cavalry Division's 5th Regiment so I've been trying to learn more information about the regiment in hopes of gaining a better understanding of what my Grandfather did in the war. My Grandma suffers from mild dementia so she doesn't remember very much. My father said that Grandpa didn't talk much about his service but he thought he was a radio operator stationed in Japan. I have a picture of my Grandfather taken on a mountain (or volcano) while in Japan. Looking at the timeline of the 5th Regiment, it looks like my Grandfather probably never stepped foot on Korean soil as based on other records I think his deployment occurred during 1952 which is when the regiment was on Hokkaido, Japan, which fits what I have been told.

    I also have some other photos that appear to be taken while in Japan and a few last names are written on the back of them: Schoenkel, Burket, Frost, Dobson, Caraway, Parker, Neu. If you may be related to anyone with that last name, please contact me and I can share the pictures.

    Obviously any records or memories specifically of my Grandfather would be amazing, but any specific details about the 5th Regiment's activities during 1952 would also be very helpful!

    Thank you!

    My Grandfather was wounded in Chorwon on 26 October 1951. He like many others has not spoken about his service until recently. He is a VFW member and always gives his trip to DC away to a more deserving veteran... So this September, I am taking him to DC to see the memorials and Arlington. He really wants to pay respects to others that were in his duty assignment, but he can't remember names (everyone has a nickname) and he wasn't there long before being injured and sent to Japan. His name is George Shauger. I do not know of any nicknames. He believes he remembers someone by the name of Tapperson, which today in a search, I see a Frederic Tapperson who also was injured on 26 October, but did not make it. Mr. Tapperson was from 1st Cav, Div Infantry, CV DIV Cav Regt Inf Unit 0005 from the site on which I found him - so it's not a match for Div/Unit etc. If you have names/information of anyone in H Company 5th Cav deployed in Sept/October 1951 that is alive, passed, potentially in Arlington that we can honor while visiting next month, please let me know.
    Thank you.

    Comments: Bobby S Box was my dad's (Billy Haven Box) brother. I remember my dad and their mother (Bessie B. Roden) speaking of Bobby often, which most of the time included Bobby's cause of death. I was told many times by my father & grandmother that Bobby was not killed in Korea. He was actually at home on leave, March 14, 1951, when he was killed. Bobby was trying to help a woman who was being robbed at gun-point. The gun was turned on him, he was shot & then died. My mother has even told me this over the years. It's disturbing, as everywhere I read, it shows he was KIA in Korea. Hoping someone that served with him could tell me if they remember him clearly dying in Korea or not. Many thanks in advance.

    Comments: I am looking for anyone who served with Bobby (Bob) Hampton from Edinburg, TX. All of his military records, awards/citations and most of his memorabilia have been lost over the years, and I am trying to help him recreate as much of his Korean record as possible, and reconnect with anyone who may have known him then.

    Bobby enlisted in Edinburg, was sworn in at Corpus Christi, TX and did basic at Ft. Riley before deploying to Japan for amphibious training at Camp McGill. He was wounded twice, once (I think) during the Battle of the Pusan Perimeter (treated in the field), and again on 2 November 1950 at Unsan (I believe). At that time, he was a PFC, evacuated to a hospital ship, probably the USS Haven until returned to duty in March 1951. At some point, he received a battlefield promotion to SGT as all but a couple of men in his immediate unit had been killed, and he was charged with 42 ROK soldiers. He was awarded the Purple Heart , but we also believe paperwork was submitted for a Bronze Star and possibly a marksmanship badge/recognition, neither of which he received.

    Now, Bobby is 83 and as a family friend, I'd like to do as much as I can to help him. One of his best buddies was a trooper called Slim, unfortunately, Bobby doesn't recall his full name or where he was from, but maybe that name will sound familiar to a reader here. Separately, he signed up in Edinburg with a man named Sammy Evans; I have no idea if he was assigned to the 1st Cav/5th Reg or not.

    I would greatly appreciate any information or contacts through this email, or through another post. I will update this posting as I uncover any other pertinent information.

    For those of you who served during the Korean War, and for the families whose soldier/sailor/airman/marine, a simple thank you just doesn't say enough for what you gave to our great Nation.

    Comments: My name is Kevin Lohela, I'm the son of Captain Reino Lohela, Company K, 5th Calvary Regt. My father has died and I'm to learn more about his time in the army. My father received the Silver Star for his actions against the enemy on March 17, 1951, near Honchon Korea. Company K was given the orders to take Hill 380. I know this probably a long shot, but if there is any one that may have know my father, fought with him or was involved in that battle, I would be so grateful if you would contact me. Thank you to everyone that has served our country. GOD BLESS YOU ALL

    Comments: Looking for someone that served in Korea in 1953 - 1954 and suffered injury due to frostbite. My dad, Corporal Bennie F. Farley says that he suffered frost bite and has had no feelings in his toes since that time. According to the VA, his military records were destroyed in the fire at a VA facility years ago. Need help verifying what happened during those years and possibly talk to someone who also suffered the same injury.

    Comments: I posted something here some time ago, looking for a connection to my Dad's service in
    Korea.
    Since then I have received some photos and more information about his service from
    family members. Ray Larsen was in the Wyoming National Guard and when they were called
    up he was part of a tank corp and artillery unit in 1951. He trained in Ft. Campbell,
    KY. Anyone knowing more about this 5th RCT regiment or info please contact me.
    I have a few questions, one, I cannot find out what rank he was and verify for sure
    the stories he told of being the regiment historian, but I do know he took loads of
    photos, and had some as I grew up. He was on the front lines during 2 mo's time near
    Kumsong in heavy battle. I would like to post some of the photos as memories of his
    time that winter. He is shown with a Tank # TK-74 J-I.
    Thanks.
