Comments: Just found this page. I was the records clerk in the group motor pool and then the group motor sgt. I was there from Aug 62 to Oct 63. I extended 3 months to make Sgt E-5 so I could fly home instead of that darn 3 week boat ride. The CO was Cpt Pearson, Supply Sgt was SSg Gillaland. I remember being in class during the Cuban Crisis and what a scare as we didn't know what was going on. What a site to see the 3 nurses in their combat gear!! I really enjoyed my tour there and the great times in the NCO Club and down in Mojin-Dong. Good old OB Beer!! And of course the pretty girls especially MOMBO. Does anyone remember the spraying of mosquitos with the 55 gallon barrel of DDT hooked to the jeep manifold. I drove it for about 3 months in the summer of 63. Jerry Sehested from New York, and Bazemore were friends of mine. I sure would like to return and see the country. My son went 3 years ago with his girlfriend. He really liked it and the people are so nice. Just checking to see if anyone remembers me or my friends.

Comments: I was stationed at Headquarters, 65 Medical Group, Camp Nabors
from November 1963 to December 1964. I worked in S-4 with
Master Sargent Watson, and Lt. Col. F.A. Boading. I remember
the village of Mojin Dong that was right outside our gate and
Ritas place where we all went for a dring after happy hour at
the NCO club.

I heard we would never recognize the place now.

Comments: As of 2010, the former location of 65th Medical Group
(home in 1968-69 also to 168th Medical Battalion, 5th
Preventive Medicine Unit, and 618th Medical Company)
was being used as a driver training school and a
wedding hall. On Google Earth, the coordinates are
37°32'39.65N and 127° 4'53.45E127° 4'53.45E.

For those of you who have not been back to Korea,
prepare yourself for a shock. Konkuk University, which
had a campus nearby in 1968-69, has greatly expanded
and one of the dominant buildings on its campus is a
huge hospital.

The nearest subway stop (!) to the old unit site is on
the #7 line, and the area north of the site is a large
Children's Park. There are no rice paddies in the area
anymore, and, although the buildings around the site
are relatively low-rise, many of the university
buildings are high-rise.

The full location is Mojin-dong, Guangjin-gu, Seoul.

Comments: 1962-1963 It was Mo-Jing-Dong, or Mojindong. There's
a beautiful, full blown university there now. I wonder
if they know they're learning right on top of Rita's
Home and Country Girl, Steel Chest, Gold Tooth Annie,
Sookie and too many others to recall. It was a little
south east of Seoul, right near Walker Hill, which is
now a Four Seasons Hotel with all of the amenities.
I'd give anything to repay a visit there before I
check out. I'm told that you wouldn't recognize any of
it!

Comments: I don't know if I'm doing this correctly. I'm looking for information about my Dad's time in Korea. He was there from July 1950 to August 1951. The newspaper article about his return home in 1951 said that he was with the 25th Engineer and later the 65th Medical.

Hie name was:
John Thomas O'Connor (He usually went by Tom)
213 E Centrailia St
Elkhorn, WI 53121

He died in 1990. I'm trying to learn more about what he experienced in Korea.
