Comments: I was transferred to the unit identified as the 65th Ord Co. (Sp Ammo)(GS) which was located on a small compound at Anyang. I was transferred to the unit from the 226th Ord Det (DS) which was located on ASCOM CITY Depot compound in April of 1963. I took lead in a new augmentation for the repair of Hawk Warheads and other assorted jobs. I worked for a good man by the name of SFC John Stringfellow. He saved my cookies a many a times. The Company Commander was Maj. John J. Douglas. During my stay I was sent up to Camp Casey toward the DMZ on Orders LO 5-1, 3 May 1963 to conduct Ordnance Activities.

Keywords: Names that may ring a bell include Tuttle, Fleming, Dickey, Lawrence, Lynch, Hinson, Ogden, Matos, Parks, and so many more. I signed up with EOD while at Anyang and went to EOD School the next year at Indian Head, Maryland. I believe the Compound was the 83rd Ordnance Battalion (Ammo) Headquarters.

We had a great Med Shop and medic. We supported an orphanage and of course, the club which was managed by MSG Kline of the EOD Detachment was pretty good. Dale Ogden also went EOD which I new for many more years and of course, Vietnam caught up with us which had been rattling along for years.

Comments: DAC, Chief of Surveillance, June 1999 to September 2000. This was my first tour in
Korea, and a very happy one for the most part. Camp Page was the best kept secret
of
all tours in this country. Those that avoided it, and there were many, including Army
chaplins, don't know what they missed. I arrived there after spending 5 years with
the
U.S. Army Ammunition, Munitions and Chemical Command and 5 years with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, all in the area of Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois. It was an
unaccompanied tour. but elected to bring my new Korean American bride with me.
We
had a wonderful time, taking the train to Seoul on the weekends to visit Kyong's
relatives in Seoul. I was sorry to hear of the deactivation of the 65th a few years
later.
It was a great location, one of the premier tourist spots in the country. I'm now with
the 6th Ord Bn at USAG (Camp) Humpreys, a little worse for wear with the passage of
time, but still happy to be in Korea.

Comments: Dear Sir,
I am writing on behalf of my Father-in-Law. Douglas V. Waddell Sr.
who served 18 months in Chun Chon, Korea (Sp) serving under
Captain Hicks who later became a colonel. This unit was an all
colored unit during his time and then was integrated by 1952.

We would like to add his experiences to your record as this unit
was left by 1st Calvary as the the Koreans chased them down the
mountain and out of their Valley. according to my Father-in-Law,
the Calvary never said to anyone in the 65th to retreat, or even run.
They simply left as the Koreans came down the mountain beating
their drums saying, "run GI, run, we coming".
This was the day the Calvary was disgraced, never crossed the
river and lost its colors.
This is why they wear the yellow patch with the horses head facing
away from the line which represents the river they never crossed.

Please drop me a line and we will share with you more information
regarding 65th Ordinance Company, Andy Ammo 1951-1952

Keywords: Andy Ammo, nickname-Rabbit. Guilford Cummings, Captain Hicks,
Heavy from MP. Gen. Mark Clark.

Comments: I joined the 65th at Ft. Hood, TX as it was packing up to go to Korea. I was assigned to the Calibration section. The unit was first at K-6 (Pyong Taek) and then moved to more permanent quarters down south. We moved into an old ammo storage area. Our Electrical Maintenance building had been set up fairly well but needed a lot of finishing work. We were still working on it when I rotated back to the states in September of '59.

I saw the posting from Jim Mullany. I would love to hear from you or any of the other guys from that time.

Comments: I was there from Christmas, 1997 to Christmas, 1998. We all complained about the lack of better facilities, but I have more good memories of Camp Page and the 65th than anywhere else I served. I even miss hearing the apaches take off right outside my room window every morning at dawn. Anyone that might remember me, shoot me an email.

Keywords: Too many good people in 65th to list them all, esp. the DAC's.
