Comments: I'm the grandson of Thomas Hunt McCarty. All my life I've remarkable, sad, happy,
inspiring, and truly great stories from my grandfathers time in Korea. A lot of
those stories would scare me to hell. My grandfather is alive and well, and I told
him about this site but, as you can guess, he doesn't know computers that well.

Real quick... I remember story about my grandfather (E7 at the time) was woken up
in the middle of the night by a phone call from 8055 MASH. MCCARTY WE NEED 5 GUYS
WITH TYPE-O POSITIVE BLOOD AND WE NEED THEM FAST!!! My grandad got 5 guys together
and rode the jeep to the MASH unit and saved a young mans life.

There are many more stories as I'm sure we all have. I'm just wondering if there is
anybody out there who knew my grandfather and worked with him during the Korean
War.

Nurses: Lt. Nicosia, Lt. Ellen Church, Capt. Elmira Dalyrumple, Lt. York, Lt. Kathy Wilson, Lt. Baumgartner, Captain Bean.

If you are one of the people listed, how is your health? Are you able to travel? Would you want to do another reunion in Mesa? Dad can't travel, but he sure would like to reconnect. I haven't mentioned this idea to him, but if there is interest, why not? : )

Comments: My father served in Korea with the MASH 8055th during the Korean War
as a motor pool driver.

Whenever I have tried to talk to him about his experiences there, he
only gets a few sentences in before he has to stop. A good friend of his
who was an infantryman was KIA there. Sixty years have not healed all
the wounds.

I have scanned many of his photos from that time, and they are among
my most treasured possesions.

Comments: Hello, my name is Ken Parks and I'm currently studying Korean at the Defense Language Institute. One of the many things that we have been learning about is the Korean War obviously because it is the major feature of Modern Korean History. And as crazy as this sounds MASH units were about the extent of my knowelege, and I just want to thank all of the men and women who often had to become supermen to do the work that they did. Without MASH units I believe that there would be far more graves from the war and that it is solely because of your efforts that some many made it home.
I love learning as much as I can about the history of Korean, both pre- and post-war eras. If anyone would like to share their experiences, it would be great to hear from you again.
Thanks again.

Comments: My mother was a nurse in the 8055 MASH. From about 1950-1952 I think. Her name was Marie McMinn, called Mac. I would like information about her or about daily life in a MASH unit. I know she was a surgical nurse, flew in helicopters to the front lines to pick up wounded. She never talked much about that time, but she did leave me some nice photos.

Comments: My aunt served in korean war as a army nurse. When she came home, her mind was gone, and she was in a home for years. I never asked her any information, because she didnt even know she was in the world. How do I go about finding out was mash unit she was in? I found tons of slides of her and other nurses that are in great shape. Does anyone have an idea what I can do with them?

Comments: My name is Kelley and I am a senior in high school in New Hampshire. I have to write a 20 page report on whatever topic I choose for my english class (it's a requirement for graduating) and my topic is the medical advances made from the Korean War and the doctors and nurses who performed them. I need an interview from someone who was actually working in a MASH unit during the war to complete this project. if anyone is interested please send me an e-mail. The interview can take place online, it would just be answering a few questions, and i could send them to you before hand. So anyone interested, please e-mail me, thanks!

Comments: I am desperately seeking information about my grandfather, Franklin Carr, who I never knew. He died in 1976 in Louisville, KY. I understand he was a DDS in the army during the Korean war. Any information would be most appreciated.
