Comments: My father, Company B, 9th infantry, was injured in Korea (second time) in February 1951 near Sung sok(?). He had severe head and chest wounds. Looking for information on what happened to him after receiving his injuries. He may have gone to 8076 MASH and then to the hospital ship. Looking for any information I can find on this.

Comments: My father, Dr. W. Albert Sullivan, Jr. flew home for three (3) days for my birth (October 28, 1951) and returned to H'wach'on, North Korea to work as a General Surgeon with the Mash 8076 until 1953.

Dad never talked about his Military Experience. Sadly, he passed away in 1990. I have just discovered three boxes of 35 mm Slides detailing his time there.

Any ideas how to proceed?

W. A. Sullivan, 3rd.

Comments: My Father passed away almost 4 years ago. (Henry Coyle). While he rarely discussed his tour he was the unit clerk in Korea early in the Korean War. I am only looking for anyone who may have been stationed with him during that time of his life. He went on to have 10 children and we all graduated from college. We owe a lot to both him and our Mother so any information is appreciated.

Comments: After serving in the Korean War from June to December of 1950, I
resigned from the Army as a Major in 1954 after serving time at St.
Louis University Medical School as an ROTC instructor and
completing my residency training in orthopedic surgery. I was then
transferred to Camp Atterbury in Indiana for several months. Then
as my final assignment, I was transferred to the 98th General
Hospital in Munich, Germany as head of orthopedics where I
remained approx. a year. I resigned my commission and went into
private orthopedic practice in Pennsylvania.

Comments: Was just visiting and realized my contact info needed to be updated. Hope there are still a few out there that may remember my father.

For those who have gone before us...

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve,
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey....
I asked for health, that I might do greater things,
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things....
I asked for riches, that I might be happy,
I was given poverty, that I might be wise....
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men,
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God....
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life,
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things....
I got nothing that I asked for -
but everything that I had hoped for,
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.

Comments: Hello,

I'd be very interested to hear from anyone actually stationed in Korea for the duration of the Korean War, or those who had much involvement with Korea in the years directly after, specifically pertaining to orphanages and refugee camps.
I'm currently researching a novel set across the years the war took place and those directly after, and would be incredibly grateful if anyone would be kind enough to contact me with any information they may have. If anyone has any experiences or memoirs they should be kind enough to let me read, or even enter into direct e-mail correspondence with me, that would be fantastic.
Through this research I've become very interested personally in the people that lived through this conflict, so even if you don't think your input would be of much use or interest to me, I can assure you it most certainly would!

Thanks,
Grace

Comments: I thought if fitting to post on here, in memory of my mother, Mary Ida Couch, who served as a nurse in the 8076th MASH during the winter of 50. She said she was with the "second" group of nurses to go over. She didn't speak often of her service, but I know she was proud to have served.

She passed away over a year ago now, a few weeks before her 85th birthday. I am now the proud caretaker of her army cap, her captain's bars, and her United Nations Korean Service medal, with 4 battle stars, and treasured memories of the stories she did tell.

How many men came home because of her service, and the service of those like her? God bless you all from the proud son of and Army Nurse.

Some may forget, but I never will.
