Comments: I've never looked back after being discharged from the Army in 1965 but had a little time on my hand this morning and googled Ascom 6th Med Depot and was surprised to read various posts.
I was assigned in the Loose Issue section which was not a bad duty compared to the guys that had to work in the cold or hot warehouses. A couple of names popped up in my mine that was stationed there with me ie. Willie Parker of Greenville SC or maybe NC (?). Shelly, B, Miller, Dubois and Lowe. There was one in particular that filled the heaters during the winter months with Diesel named Fry. Afterwards I was stationed at Ft Benning, Ga at Hospital Det, Martin Army Hospital.

I am looking to see if anyone might have served with

grandfather, Lawrence F. King, in the 6th Medical Depot. He

arrived at the 6th just after the armistice in 1953. I would be

an honor to meet anyone who knew or met him over in Korea. He

passed away way before I was born. If you remember him or his

name please do not hesitate to email me. Anyone info is

Comments: I am looking for anyone that might have served with my dad. It would have been right around 1951, or 1952 I believe. I would love to talk to someone that might have served with him, just to know him a bit better than I did before he died. Thank you. I have a picture of him standing by one of the barracks on crutches, not sure what happened to his leg/foot. Never heard any stories growing up.

Comments: Looking for info re: when and where my Dad served - 6th Army Medical Depot APO 301. He was issued Korean Service Medal w/3 bronze stars. He was recalled 10-25-50 at Ft. Campbell, KY as a Cpl. Rec'd rank of Sgt(T) 4-22-51.

He may have been a POW for six months and led an escape of 12 men. My Mother did not receive any mail from him for six months but he did not speak of his time in Korea until his 2nd brain tumor which led to his eventual death.

If you knew him or anything about his outfit, please contact me to help me understand and know what my Dad went thru in Korea.
Thanks for serving in the military. Any info will be greatly appreciated by his family.
