Keywords: My father was in the Korean war well, he said he was the cook they found out how well he could cook so they put him in the Mess Hall he said he made the best mashed potatoes and the men loved his cooking. He came from a large family and had to learn to cook his name was Jimmy Strain was curious if anyone remembers him he was from Arkansas. I know it was in the 50's not sure what year think was maybe from 1952-1955 somewhere
around that time. My father had a friend his friend was

Comments: I know this is such a long shot but I am looking for info about my biological grandfather. He served in Korea, I can't tell you what dates. I choose not to ask my mother and my Grandmother about him because he commited suicide on July 15 1962-1968.(My mm/dd/ birthday appx 30 years early-- no b/s!) any help in tracking his records would be satisfying. GOD BLESS THE USA.

Comments: KCOMZ phased out in Feb '55, we were assigned to the 8073d and sent to Pusan. In June (I think) '55 we were sent to join the rest of the 8073d which was attached to the 8th Army HQ Engineer Section in Seoul. The guys listed in the keywords left for home before I left in March '56.

Any of you fellows, or others of the unit, out there?

Comments: This is to update my email address.

The 8073rd Army Unit, (Engr. Real Estate Detachment) was assigned the duty of surveying all properties in the Wonju area being used by US Forces for their compounds. We assessed the orginal value of the property. We then assessed damages to the property and improvements made to the property. It was our understanding this would be used when and if claims of damage were ever made by the property owners. The largest property we surveyed was the airfield (K-14?).

We lived in Tent 7 with the 52nd? Transpotation BN. We reported to an MP Capt who served as Exec. Officer of the Wonju Area Command. One of my troops last name was Walsh. Memories are growing dim of that time. I do remember Terry Moore coming in to do a USO Show. Her Mother was with her and she was no longer appearing in the white ermine bathing suit when she got to Wonju.
