Comments: I was with the initial group forned in Yokohama and
went over on some Marine attack transport. I
remember the first 2 days, and nights, unloading
crates of equipment from trucks. I haden't hanledt
anything heaver than a syringe for 3 years before
that. I was assigned to the admisions Office as a
clerk?? I was a med. tech. finaly got to surgery
where we only worked 12 hour shifts, In the
Admisions we worked till the patients were gone, some
36 hours and several 24 hours. I remember the
adjutants name Kicklighter (sp)? because the Col.
would see something he didn't like and start
hollering KICKLIGHTER, KICKLIGHTER!!!!. I have
many pictures of the personnel and surgical
patients. I returned to the States in, I think,
Sept. or Oct. 1951.

Comments: As a charter member of the 8054 Evacuation Hospilal,I would like to clarify the title of the unit. It is listed under army medical units as the 8054 M.A.S.H.which is not true. It was originated on 1 July 1950 in Yokohama as the 8054 Evacuation Hospital and remained so until mid December 1950 when it became the 3rd Station Hospital. About the same time, the 3rd Field Hospital was formed to handle N. K. P.O.W.'s. Prior to the 3rd Field Hosp.,the 8054 Evac. had been caring for both P O W and allied wounded.
Lt. Col. Willis was the original C. O. of the 8054 Evac. Some of the doctors I worked with as an
orthopedic surgical technician were: Lt.Col. Zalkan, Capt. Wm. Moore and 1st Lt, Preston Taylor

Comments: I'm an eighth grade student at Windsor Knolls Middle School in Frederick County Maryland. I'm part of a veterans committee at my school that does special things to honor the men and women that have served our country. I was hoping to get some information about the MASH unit of 12 nurses that arrived on July 6,1950. Please feel free to email me any time to let me know more about this topic. Thank you for your gift to our country. God Bless!!
Sincerely,
Claire

Comments: While preparing an exhibit on Korean War medicine for the NJ Veterans Museum, I interviewed Dr. Julian Hyman, a Navy physician who served at the 8054th Evac, 3rd Station Hospital, in Pusan in 1951. He is letting us use a number of medical photographs in his possession that were taken by 1st Lt Charles Garrett, including photos of patients with smallpox and hemorrhagic fever (when it was still believed to be a strange form of smallpox). We'd like to get in touch with Mr. Garrett and acknowledge him propoerly in the exhibit.

We'd also be interested in getting recollections by anyone who had hemorrhagic fever or treated patients with it. Also anyone who was involved--as patient or medical professional-- with the artificial kidney dialysis treatments at the 11th Evacuation Hospital.

I'll be glad to pass along messages for Dr. Hyman.

Many thanks
