Comments: Instead of being given a toolbox for which I was trained as I was supposed to fix tanks when I arrived in Korea, I was given a rifle. After a couple of skirmishes oh, they realize I was better with a toolbox than a rifle and I was finally sent to the 703 ordinance maintenance group. I worked on tanks and drove Jeeps. I played cards with the ncos and frequently took their money as I was a card shark. Today, I play bugle and do many ceremonies and also sadly funeral services for Veterans as part of the Korean War veterans association and Elks Lodge that I belonged to and and proud to serve my country this way. Anyone in my group please look me up. I look forward to sharing stories with each of you. I will be in Washington DC this November 9th thru 11th to participate in the historic parade of Heroes which is honoring veterans from World War II Korea and Vietnam. I was honored to be fooed as one of the keynote speakers and will be speaking on behalf of the Korean war vets. Thank you very much!

Comments: My father, Charles William Atkinson, rarely spoke of his time in the Army. However, I wanted to find out about his experiences so that I could share them with his grandchildren. Sadly, my father passed away in 2007. He may have went by the nickname of Bud or Skinny. Went to boot camp at Fort Stewart I believe and ended up in Fort Totten prior to separation from the Army. Any help would be greatly appreciated. To ALL Korean War Veterans...please accept my most sincere sense of gratitude and appreciation. God Bless.

Comments: My father has recently passed and never spoke about the war to his children. All I really know is that he was in ordnance (this may or may not be his outfit). Prior to going overseas he schooled at Aberdeen, MD.

I'm trying to piece together this part of his life as a tribute and so his great grandson will know what kind of man he was to have served his country.

If anyone can help me or can give me a place to start please feel free and contact me.

Thank you to all Veterans for your unselfish service.

Comments: My father was Daniel Loften, served in the 703rd Ord. Co., 3rd Div. in Korea 1952-53. I guess I'm just here looking for old friends of my father's that can share stories. My son, Daniel Thomas Loften, was only 6 months old when my father passed away, and I am hoping to put together a compilation of stories to help him get to know who his grandfather was. The kid is nearly 16, so even funny, not so tame stories work now too. ;-) I'm looking forward to hearing from anyone. Ericka :)
