Comments: My dad, Arthur T. Maguire, was the young Lieutenant referred to earlier by Donald Young. He is in declining health but still has vivid memories of his time in Korea and Japan (all I need to do is show him the arm patch signifying his unit and he barks out without prompting "You call, We haul". He also remembers the tough master sergeant, and Captain - in addition to my Dad these three were the only officers and the only Caucasian in the company. After several months the enlisted men began fighting with each other over the local women, actually shooting at each other. The officers were forced to take all the guns away from the men, with the exception of whoever was on guard duty. One day this person got drunk and began shooting up the compound. My Dad went to try and stop him and was shot in the chest, losing most of one lung. He spent the rest of his time in service recooperating in Japan (which sounded like a sweet deal). If anyone would like to get in touch with him let me know

Best regards,
James M. Maguire

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran - Korea

Comments: I was assigned to the 73rd about 2 Dec. 52. The unit was located just south on the Hawn River bridge, just as you got over the bridge you made a left turn and followed the road into an old apineese musical institute, I believe it was three buildings and about two or three stories tall.

Early in 1953, the army turned the 73rd over to the ROC Army and us American drivers were transfered out to various truck companies, I went to the 42nd TK. at Ui-Jong-Bu for a couple of weeks and then reassigned to the 49th Tk Co. until Late November 1953.

You may or may not have been there when I arrived, But tell me did you have an Alcaholic for a first sargent, a rather elderly man? If so your and I did have the same First Sargent, there could not have been another one like him.

Let me hear from you, Please

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran - Korea

Comments: I was assigned to batallion headquarters May, 1952 and transferred to 73rd as company clerk about July, not too long after the lieutenant was shot in the mess hall. Our houseboy was Jo Jong Sup. Is anyone out there who was assigned to the 73rd in 1952?
It would be great to hear from someone who went to Korea from Japan with the 73rd in 1950. One day in about Aug 1952 the CO and I went through the company safe and found a diary of company actions in 1950-51; unbelievable stories.
