Comments: I joined the Bn as an Avionics tech. L19, L20, H13, H23, TDC was a hoot! As Tom Minerva we left the Bn and were reassigned to the 155th Avn Co (AML) Camp Stanley. When we got to RVN via WWII a/c carrier up the Saigon river to the Harbor of Saigon we convoyed to the University of Saigon where the Co. was split up and redesignated A Co. 1st Avn Bn 1st ID. We took all the UH-1 that were in country (ROK) minus the CG of course. Mr. Minerva if you know? Did Mr. Greenwahl ever teach his wife to fly that B model?

Keywords: Friend Dwayne. They called us Baby Huey and Goosie Gander maybe it was our size and/or practical jokes. There was a sfc who loaned a ROK Captain 350 gallons of avn gas 115/145. It turned out the so called ROK Captain was an imposter or better known as a SLICKIE BOY. What a ditz. Also there was a man named Mosenna, I knew his family from my church in the states. The most memorable thing was sitting through the commanders in brief after just receiving 8.5cc of gamma goblin in my 4th point of contact. Life is good.

Comments: I am the owner of a 1952 M38A1 Jeep with the markings of the 7th Infantry Artillary Division on the front bumper. The Jeep is 95% original, in fact it's still riding on 3 original tires dated 1952. I ran into a Korean War veteran at the gas station last week, and he shared a story of how a similar jeep saved his butt once after hitting a mine. I just wanted to let you know that after 51 years it's still running strong.

Comments: I am the eldest son of (then)Maj. Robert Low who was the aviation officer for the 7th during part of your service there. He died last Tuesday and I am attempting to pull together some biographical information concerning his tour in Korea. He will be buried at Arlington with full honors on December 27 having received about a dozen combat decorations from a Silver Star down during his tour with the 7th. If you knew him and had any anecdotes or any information at all I would appreciate hearing from you. I am preparing remembrances for his wake at my house after his burial. If you knew him and are near DC you would be an honored guest at our celebration of his life.

Comments: I was a pilot in the 7th Division Artillery in 1951 and 1952 in the above mentioned locals. We had two Aviation Sections, one was the Division Headquarters Aviation Section and the other was the Artillery Aviation Section. I was assigned to the 57th Field Artillery Battalion. We in the Artillery functiond as Division Artillery Aviation. As I remember it, we worked harder than the Division Aviation personnel. Almost all of our flying was performed north of the battle line. I flew over 700 hours during my six months at the front and then they rotated me to the 2nd Logistical Command in Pusan. By giving pilots six months at the front with four points per month they could keep us in country for a full year because in our rear assignment, we only received two points per month. It took 36 points to return stateside. But, that was O.K. because we were not in as much danger as we were at the front.

I returned to Korea in 1969 and commanded the 7th Division Aviation Battalion from April until December. We could not have a command for longer than six months because we had so many pilots who had never had a command and that was a prerequisit for higher command. I spent the last few months as the Civil Affairs Officer and was reassigned to Heidelberg Germany.

I am still in touch with some of our pilots and one observer. The latter and I returned to korea last October in the Korea revisit program and we really enjoyed it. Korea has really changed since the war.

Now for some bragging rights. I entered the military as a private in 1943, went through the Aviation Cadet program, was commissioned a 2LT in 1944 and spent 6 1/2 years in the USAF as a fighter pilot.. Unfortunately, I was in the training command and could not do what I wanted to most which was to fly fighters. Most of my time as an instructor was as a P-40 Instructor. I transferred to the Army, as a pilot in 1949 and retired as a Regular Army full colonel in 1978. I really enjoyed my service time, even the time in Korea and Vietnam.
