Comments: My father, John J Murphy, possible nickname Irish was in the 77th field artillery battalion / 7thCavalry Regiment Second Battalion Combat Team in Kaesong Korea in 1951. We have many great pictures of him and his unit. Lots of guys we would love to know their names. Would love to have any information. Johnnie passed away in 1984.Thank you to all our veterans.

Comments: My grandfather, Harry Loy, was in the 77th FA BN and was killed in Korea in 1951. My family, specifically my father, knows very little about his father and I am looking for people who may have known him and have information and stories they could share with us. Any information you have, even if it is not about Harry Loy specifically and more about what the 77th was doing, would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: I wrote this previous e-mail, but I guess my e-mail did not take:

Comments: My father was in the 77th AF, 1st Cav in Korea. 1LT Daniel C. Kane. He died when I was very young and I am trying to find out as much information on him and his unit as possible. I believe he served in A and C Batteries as a Forward Observer. Thanks.


Keywords: Hill 395, Hill 37 and 38. Toxon Chinese
Bed Check Charlie.

I would like to add one other detail. My father put his unit in for a citation and was told to put himself in as well. He did not do this out of his belief that it would not be appropriate. I would like to find out if any of those who received the award recall the event that led to the award.

Comments: My father passed away many years ago in 1971, arguably never recovering from his action in Korea. He would wake up screaming things like bed check Charlie and the tanks the tanks and of course coordinates that we could not understand. He was an Forward Observer with the 77th Field Artillery, 1st Cavalry Division. He was an ROTC cadet from St. Bonaventure University and was pulled out of school early to fight in Korea.

I do not know what I am looking for really. I have some of his items from the war, patches, and keepsakes etc. I guess I am curious if there is anyone left after all of this time that might still have known him or about his unit.

I recently suffered a fire at the family home and much was lost, but one thing I found was a DM armband, not DMZ and a gemmed belt that appears like it might have been some sort of fraternity belt or activity that might have been part of the unit lore.

He worked as part of the Saber and First Cav publications after the War and wrote articles and aided in 1st Cav functions and such. He loved the 1st Cav, I know that. He would not even let us watch F-troop since it was insulting to the Cav.

Keywords: I am not sure the battles or where he even was. I know he was in a heated exchange with a tank unit and he was calling in fire on them and his own position. He became separated from his unit during one engagement and he an a buddy had to work their way back to friendly lines. His nightmares included Bed Check Charlie and tank references. I was told his unit was primarily Korean and black US soldiers. With integration being a new thing, many Catholic Officers were chosen to lead units consisting of many black soldiers.

Comments: I was reviewing the casualty list and noticed my name was not included. I was wounded three times during the ambush on 13 Oct 50. I believe my survival was due to Cpl Minoru Sasaki coming to my aid, moving out of the line of fire. He was seriously wounded while aiding me and he died the next day from the wounds he received. I was medically evacuated back to Valley Forge Army Hospital and later on returned to duty, remaining in the service for 20 year retirement. My service number was RA13272032. During that time I used the first name Jack and later on changed it to John since that was the correct birth certificate name.

Comments: To all of the brave men who served with my father in the A and B Batterys I would like to thank you for your great and demanding service.
My father is currently in the Ft Meade VA Hospital in South Dakota. I am interested in speaking with anyone that may recall serving with him. He posted on this site, back about 2003, I think. I don't know if anyone would recall him from Camp Drew where he was injured by a howitzer and was in the hospital for a few months. Later he spent time in Korea from October of 1950 - Sep 1951 or there-abouts I think. That was with time in both A and B batterys, at different times obviously. He spoke recently of a colonel that let him shoot both his 45 and another rifle that he said he really enjoyed firing. He also told me of having to advance to to the rear while being chased and shooting as they were on the move....That sounded very scary...I never get any more than minor details out of him...He spoke of seeing some death that was far more than anyone should ever have to see. I also want to mention that he was awarded a placard from the army with something about 5 major battles or campaigns. I never have been able to figure which locations or what they are, and again it is because he neve gave any details. He only mentioned that they dove the North Koreans and Chinese clear up to the north past Pyongyang, and then they were pushed back and forth several times. I was in the Navy and visited Seoul, and spoke of the Han River. He also mentioned that they had camped on the emporers or rulers land by the Han river there. If any of you have any memories and wish to divulge historical or personal details about the places or battles you were maybe shared with my father I would be honored.
Again Thank all of you and God Bless the American Warrior!!!

Comments: My Brother PFC Richard E(Gene)James was assigned to B Btry 77th FA Bn.7th Cav.Regt.1st Cav.Div.around Dec, 1949,at Camp Drew,Japan,17 yrs old.

PC James landed in Korea with the Division around 18 Jul.50 as a Gun crewman,until his 18th B-Day and then assigned to B-Btry F.O. Team.

The Team had went through hell together until around 20-31 January 1951,after the Team was assigned to the Greek Expn.Force(UN CMD).

While carring the equipment,and being on a O.P. for over 18 hrs were retreating south due to a N.Korean counter attack about 3am in the morning,the Jeep Driver fell asleep
and went in to the ditch and flipped over,pinning Lt Bush under the jeep.

My brother and the 2 others lifted the jeep up enough to get the LT out, but my brother was in pain, he had broken his upper arm.

He was rushed to a aid station to the rear and then to a Swedish Hospital,American doctors wanted to operate,but a Swedish doctor said no,my brother was put asleep and woke up in pain and his upper body was in a cast,the next day he was evac to the the states and was in a Army Hospital for 222 day befor returning to duty in the States,and later shipped to Germany and was Honorably discharged on 23 April 1953,20 yrs old.

Many thanks to all who have served our GREAT NATION

I tryed to get the Purple Heart for him but it was disapproved,2 Aug 2011,my brother just turned 79 yrs Young.

DOES any one remember the Accident,if so please
contact me through my E-Mail address

Thank You

I remember SFC John Hickey, whose message is above but no email address. He was in Fire Direction, then Field First Sgt; a tall, handsome fellow, with a good
head on his shoulders and as easy going as circumstances permitted.

Lt. Robert White, a West Pointer, was my favorite all-time officer. He pulled much extra duty as FO and
managed to beat the two days average life span for Forward Observers. I recall Sgt. Mangrum's explanation for being awarded a Silver Star: " I was the only one with a dime for the Coke machine!" Actually, he was in enemy territory, crouched behind a rock wall and batting Chinese soldiers in the head with an entrenching tool, as they jumped over the wall.

Darrel Ivy, from Sgt. Arnold Naum's No. 1 gun crew, attended my wedding and Robert Barr and I ran into
each other in Mississippi but, I haven't heard from
anyone else since we were in Korea, then Hokkiado, Japan.

Comments: My father is looking for information about the Pre Korean War 77th FA. The 77th was among the occupation forces in Japan after WWII, and were based in Camp Drew, Koizuma Japan.

He would welcome any information or contacts anyone may have from this time. He is very interested at this time in finding information about Cpl. Robert W. Hoffman (1949) or Master Sgt. Joseph W. Morton, who later received a battlefield commission in 1951.

Comments: My husband William S. Tawes will kill in action October 5, 1950. I have some pictures but very little information concerning details of his army life. Most of his things were lost in a flood. Could you tell me where I could get further information. Anything you can tell me, I would appreciate so very much.

Comments: Looking for any and all information regarding my Dad. I'm told by the National Personnels Record Center, he was assigned to the 77th FA Btry, APO 174. I have an original Armed Forces Liberty Pass with the 77th FA Btry under "organization" and under "Base" it has Cp McCauley dated 16/12/51.

The National Personnels Record Center was only able to send me a copy of "Report of Separation from the Armed Forces of the U.S.(they stated that my dad received the Good Conduct Award and the Army of Occupation (Germany) Foreign Service Award). The National Archives and Records Administration didn't have much more than the Separation form also on my dad.

Is there any where else to go to get information as to "where" exactly he was stationed. I have a sister in that was born in Linz, Austria by my dad and her mother. I don't know if this "clue" helps as to where he was stationed (we know where he met Manuelita's (sister)mom (Linz).

If anyone knows where I can go to get this info., or a phone #, or an address. Please contact me.

Thanks.
