Comments: My dad served in Korea and I thought it was with the 65th Engineers. He worked with the water purification unit. If anyone knew my dad or can verify that he was with the 65th Engineers, I would appreciate the information.

He later went into the Air Force and served in Vietnam, so his DD Form 214 does not show his time in Korea or the unit he served in.

I have pictures of my dad in Korea standing with ROK soldiers. They printed something in Korean on the back of the pictures. It was during the winter or spring time, as there was snow on the ground.

Comments: I am looking for anyone who might have known my Dad, Richard W. Parizon. He served in the Army from 1950 through 1952 and was in Korea. I do not know the specific dates that he was in Korea and only remember very little of what he told us. I know there was a Korean boy (maybe an orphan), that they all grew close to. If anyone out there served with my Dad, I would love to hear from you. I'm not sure of the Platoon or Company that he was in. He always said his job was to blow up bridges.

Following active combat duty, he served in 179th Military Police Company at Fort

My Dad passed in 2003, from Lou Gehrigs Disease. His name was Duane Kent Morgan, also known as DK. We have lost Bob Mckinney, Bill Bowling, Wimpy Soyars, Arden Strand, Bill Capretto, Leonard Stamper, Don Wrightson, Garabed Kenoian, and Bill Agee. I want to thank them for coming into my life and becoming my much loved uncles while they were here. All of these men had cold injury from their time in Korea (1950-51) near the Yalu River. I will always appreciate their service to our country.

Comments: We were sent to Thailand in 1962 or 63? as a show of force. We helped build the barracks there before the infantry was sent in. I spent about 6 or 8 months there. We were there when they had a contest to name the camp which was named camp friendship. So I think we were one of the first ones there. I have goggled the 65 engineers Thailand camp friendship but have not found any reference to the 65 engineers. Does anyone rambler this or was I just dreaming.

His name was Chester Talbert Reynolds nick name may have been " Chick " He was a sargeant. Not sure what rank sargeant, helmet shows three stripes on top two on the bottom standing next to two other soldiers by his jeep at the Han River Bridge. Have a handful of pictures of Gi's from his unit and some pictures of a Korean orphan child he said was raised by him and the rest of the guys in the unit, childs name was E Ping Yee Hee I believe. He never talked much about the war except just before he died. He said it was the coldest place he had ever been. Talked a little about the retreat from Chosin and the Pusan perimeter. Talked about a soldier named Fred Denney. I believe thats the correct spelling. Said if it wasn't for Fred I wouldn't be here today ? Any info or help would be great. Thanks from his son.

Comments: I am looking for anyone who may have served with my father Clyde Stanfield in Company C, 65th Combat Engineer Battalion, 25th Infantry Division during the Korean War in 1950. My father passed away in April of 2009 and for the first time within a year of his death he briefly spoke about the horrific details of being overrun by the Chinese and North Koreans at a northern position his unit was holding. This was the only time that I remember my father crying and it was evident that he was terribly shaken by describing the event as the only time that he truly feared for his life. I believe it was during the night and in the chaos of his unit being overtaken he and another man had to jump off what he described as a mountainside to escape. He didnt know if he would survive the fall but he remembered taking that chance as opposed to facing what he was witnessing as certain death. Many men were lost in this ordeal and it wasnt until the next day that my father found the remainder of our forces once again. Since my fathers passing, I have been researching Company C, 65th Combat Engineer Battalion, 25th Infantry Division during this time of the Korean War and I have found that they took significant losses when they were overrun at a position near Hill 222 which is south of the Kuryong River and east of the Camels Head bend. If anyone knew my father during his service or knows of this particular event, please contact me. Thank you.

Comments: My father, Raymond Rickerl served with 65 Combat Engineers in Korea 1951-1952. Didn't talk a whole lot about his time there. He died in an auto accident in 1996. I inherited his footlocker and have been going through it with his grand children, (They never had the chance to meet him). Found several photos, with names written on the back. Several were taken at a Caompany party in August of 52 on Okinawa. Alexander,McGhee,Hawkins,Smith,Campbell,Lyons,Krakoviac,Lt O'Dell I was just wondering if any were still around.

Comments: Wonder if I'm still here? Served from 79-81. Named the 1st Sgt TATTOO for his small build and never heard the end of it. Found out when he jumped off the back of the 2 1/2 ton his shoulder looked a little to dark for a newbee. Look it's Tattoo!!! I wish I never said those three words. Monday came around. It was my NEW 1st SGT. And of course he knew me. Then I remembered him. This is the 1st Sgt I put in the MUD for trying to pass me at gaurd duty, months ago on a move out. My life was hell from then on. By the way TATTOO, it's almost over asshole. HAHA. SHORT!!!!!!!!! Love ya guys and miss everyone. SUMMERS.
