Comments: I purchased a storage locker in which I found a large, enameled Made in Japan
photo album. It contains a group photo of the 7th Division Band and lots of B&W
photos (and postcards) of Japan including post-WWII Okinawa. I am trying to
identify the subject matter and the dates. The last two pages have back-at-home
photos that are dated 1959/1960, but none of the actual Japan photos are dated. My
best guess is that they would pre-date the photos in the back. The cover page in
the album has been signed by 13 men...perhaps the members of the band? Those names
are listed below in the KEY WORDS section. Some may not be precisely correct as
the penmanship is difficult to read.
It is my intention to list this item for sale on eBay but, as well as seeking
additional info on the dates and circumstances to put in my listing, I am will to
send a photographed copy of the group photo to anyone who is related to any of the
men listed in Keywords.

Comments: Played baritone horn in 7th. infantry division band in 1953. director was warrent officer Mr. Feraro who was later replaced by Mr. Belman. Great group of guys. Lived in 12 man tents. Had good chow. Some gigs for battalion parades could last for one to one and one half hours. Worst part of the whole time there was riding in the back of the duce and one half truck sitting on wooden bench seats. Just about jarred your insides out. Was a great time in my life. 83 years old now and have a Miraphone euphonium and playing in three different bands.

the area near division headquarters. There was a creek running past
our area. Later moved to the area near the 31st Regiment
headquarters, PX, theater, etc. Our hootches were located near the
fire station. We were comfortable, warm in winter, but still no running
water for the entire time. Electricity was hit or miss. Band director
was Lt. Pelligrino and later CWO Clapper. Hootchmates: Giacalone,
Jefferson, Guerdes, Apostle, Foster, Minnicello, Gras. Vitack, and
others plus Song Chong En (?) our great houseboy.

His name was Albert Torres. All I know is that he played in the band during the Korean War. He played many instruments, but his main one was sax so I am assuming that is what he played during the war.

Any help or tips would be appreciated.

Comments: I was sent to Japan in 1950, after completing Band Training in Ft. Ord,
California. I was very young and innocent without a care in the world.

I was fortunate enough to have been flown overseas with a 5 day stopover in
Honolulu, (flat broke). I arrived in Japan and was sent to a site where we (lots
of GIs) waited for assignment. I was lucky enough to be assigned to the 7th
Infantry Division Band. Unfortunately, I had no opportunity to see what Japan was
really like.

My wife and I recently spent some vacation time in Japan. WE LOVED IT!
Wonderful people, and everything was spotless. I could see why many of the guys
that were stationed in Sendai had girlfriends off-base. Who could blame them.

The Division was sent to Camp Fuji, for advanced infantry training. This only
lasted for about a month, then boarded a troopship, shared quarters with many ROK
soldiers and their dried squid. Every bunk was assigned to 3 men, who had to
sleep in equal shifts. We were to become a part of the Inchon Invasion, so we
were aboard for a very long time while the ship convoy was formed. Many got sick,
but I heard that keeping your stomach full would prevent seasickness. It worked
for me!

After the invasion the band was to become a part of the Division Defense Platoon,
assigned to protecting the Division Headquarters. 2-on, 4-off was our life style
for a long time. We moved frequently, and slept on the ground in pup-tents.

That first winter was something to remember for a California boy. It got as cold
as 20 degrees below zero on some nights. We felt like we were going to freeze.
My tent mate, George Dziwak (clarinet) was sick one of those nights, and we would
no sooner squeeze our freezing selves into our mummy-bags (fully clothed) when he
would have to hurry out into the cold with diarrhea. That poor soul, not even a
latrine, just a bush! He had to be very quiet too, as the guards on duty would
challenge him every time he came out of the tent.

At the end of that winter our duties were changed from guard to entertainers, and
traveled in the back of a 6-by to play for the troops in the forward locations.

Mr Margolin was our CO, and General Barr commanded the Division. The inactive
reserves came to help us out, and took home all of the promotions.

It was a memorable part of my life, but it was also 55 years ago. I can recall
but a few of my comrades, I'm sorry for that. We had a combo that played some
great Stan Kenton music. It was strange to most of us, but great none the less.

George Witman (drummer) and I (trumpet) wound up in the 6th Army Band in the SF
Presidio until I was discharged in 1952. He played drums in the Pipe Band
(bagpipes) He was a hoot!

My trumpet days were ruined while stationed in the Presidio, when the Army
dentists removed my four upper front teeth. Tough to play a horn with a 4-tooth
plate in your mouth.

I'd love to hear from anyone who shared these times. I'd hope to refresh my
memory.
