Comments: My dad wrote of the US troops advancing up the Korean Penisula
and coming upon American soldiers buried up to the necks that had
been used for target practice. At least one of those boys was
alive with numerous bullets lodged in his head. A doctor in the
64th field hospital saved the boys life removing the bullets. The
doctor was from Pomona, CA, and my mom, brother and I lived in
Claremont,CA. which is near Pomona. Dad told us how to get in
touch with that doctor's family which we did.

He also told us of two little Korean boys (orphans) that had
attached themselves to the Chappy. They would put flowers in
beer cans to decorate the altar in the chapel tent.

Another time He assisted evacuating the injured to a hospital
ship carrying some piggyback.

I would love to hear from anyone that knew my dad. His first
name was Augustus, so he was called Gus.

Comments: My Dad was in that military hospital.He was a nurse and I was not born until 1965. I grew up loving MASH because that was similar to what my Dad did while in the Military Police Action that was renamed the Korean War.If anyone remembers him please share with me. My Dad passed away 3/10/2007 @ 5:30AM. I was told that he had expired by the Veterens home doctor via my voice male.My Dad was drafted by this great country of ours, he was an only child that should not have been drafted! Then in his death given the dignity of a peice of trash! What was he a gallon of milk,he expired!!!My father was more proffessional in his life than that doctor who barley spoke english ever could be EVER, in my eyes!!
Plus this great country wiped out my parents because when my Dad came home with Malaria he was able to get quinine to treat it, hence never documented so when he required a higher level of care in his old age, the government took his entire pension over $2000 a month plus they wanted additional money from my mother who's household income just dropped to less than 1/4 of what is was prior. Some shit the way we treat our vets and their families!
Like your FREEDOM? Thank a soldier or a veteran!!!!
