Comments: I am looking for a Brigadier General who was commanding officer of this large field exercise. I was assigned to 8th Army TDY from 38th (ADA) Artillery Brigade (4/44th) Headquarters Battery and 4th Battalion Headquarters. The TDY involved a large field exercise that included 82th Airborne jump along with, as I recall, units from 2nd ID, maybe 7th ID and I Corps, not sure who all was there.
Anyone else know about this large exercise. I was the driver, RTO and classified documents clerk for Brigadier General (I don't recall his name, I need his name). In fact I still have my log book of radio conversations I have during the exercise. The log books I was able to retain are dated starting 19 Mar 1969. I really don't recall how long the exercise last or where it was exactly. As I recall, it was pretty far north. This is very important. I was subjected to a defoliant exposure and the physical results are now very active in my body. I have been going back and forth with the VA since 2008. My claim has been denied, my appeal has been denied. I just need more proof.

Comments: I came over as a Medic and there wasn't much to do,
so I changed my MOS to Motor Pool. I started working
on trucks for a couple of weeks and the shop burned
down (no fault of mine). Then I went to advanced
camp. Was Motor Pool Sarge there.

We started picking up prisoners that didn;t make it.
Later there was the live prisner exchange. Served in
Operation Glory.

I can;t remember many of the names of those I served
with. REmember a couple of beer drinking buddies.

Came home on General Polk.

Would like to hear from anyone else in that area
during this time. If I see your name I might
remember you. I'm 80 now, and very active in local
military organizations. Also have some photos from
Korea taken while I was there.

Comments: 1956  1957 Base Camp : I was the medic (only one) for Panmunjom in mid 1956. I was with the 125th Medical Detachment. I spent six months in Pamunjom ( Advance Camp). I did the routine medic things,and additionally I had the interesting job of checking the water purity on the neutral observers compound, the checks and Poles, for the North Koreans. Cool, once a month I got to go across the line into North Korea and it was allowed. The Polish Army had a really hot blonde Officer, who I could not talk to, but I could look all I wanted. I wished we could talk and Im sure she wanted to ask me a few things  war is hell !
I also was on a JOT Team as the medic and got to enjoy the scenery of Korea from the air, land and sea, if rowing across an unnamed river in a Korean Marine skiff qualifies as sea. I got left in Chorwon once for a week. There was not enough room in the choppers to fly every one out from a mission I was the only enlisted man on that team and a storm had blown in, I was left behind. It turned that I was the only GI the locals had seen since the truce. I naturally fraternized as much as time allowed. I got to run up a room and board  bill with my ROK interpreter/jeep driver while waiting for a Beaver Observation Plane to fly me back to the small dirt strip in Munsan Ni.

My COs were Doctors Nicholas Polite, Charales A Hoffman from West by God Virginia and Dr. Edward Manougian. The lab at the 125th was run by Bobby Oliver, Billy Joe Carrier and Jesse were southerners with lots of stories and there were other friends who's names are forgotten over the time passed.Korea has changed a lot but "JOE is still JOE"

Unit: UNCMAC JDO ADVANCE SECRETARIAT AT PANMUNJOM

Comments: Some interesting comments here, so I figured I'd add to them.

I was the only Navy enlisted person stationed with UNCMAC JDO at Panmunjom from 1986 through 1989. This caused confusion with the ROK troops as to what to call me. I told them my proper title (Petty Officer), but they said we'll just call you "Water Sergeant."

Anyways, I was working there in Panmunjom when the north passed the rumor that President Kim Il Sung was dead. A reporter called me and asked is the flag at propaganda village at half mast and how are the grief stricken north Korean troops acting? I said no, that flag is flying. And the troops are not walking around crying and balling their eyes out neither. Just a reality check to verify the integrity and loyalty of his own people and troops.

We hosted a meeting where we actually called the Senior Members Meeting (the north always called them). In it, we shamed the north and their propaganda right after the downing of the bombed KAL flight by north Korean terrorists (one was caught, the other committed suicide). They told our Admiral in that meeting that South Korea went out to the Andaman Sea with aircraft, sprinkled airplane parts on the ocean there and took pictures, that it was all made up and a hoax to embarass the north. The Admiral pointed out the windows and basically said, outside is the press who reported all this that happened and that it has been verified the north was the cause of it, now you're trying to tell me they are stupid?!?!? Suffice it to say, they couldn't wait to get out of the meeting.

Also, big fight of words about the Seoul Olympics (1988). The north did their level best to disrupt it and cause other tourist nations to not attend. The north tried to paint a picture that we were going to invade them and fights going on all over the place. We fought that propaganda battle with the best weapon we had (the truth) and we won. The Seoul Olympics turned out to be very successful.

I could go on with stories. But I enjoyed my time there and worked with nothing but true professionals, from all services, ROK and US. Cross The Line!

Comments: Was stationed with UNCMAC JDO from 1993-1994. Did the two days up at Panmunjom, occassionally as much as four straight, then rotated with my Army and Air Force counterparts. When we were not on duty at PMJ we stayed in Seoul at the UNC Compound, I was in room 6 I believe, next to the head. Was a great time, would do it all again. So much freedom over there, it was incredible. Was on duty when the press bldg at PMJ burned down, also for the visits of John Stockton from the Utah Jazz and Bruce Willis. This was about the time that the North set about adding their third floor, if you could call it that, to their main bldg. Also about the time that we had received remains from the North, which I heard later that they were pretty much bogus, as investigated by the lab in Pearl Harbor. Many more great and funny memories while serving on the line. Was the best tour I had during my 20 years in the Navy.

Comments: Camp Bonifas was turned over to the ROKA in Oct 03 (I believe). A year or two later, UNCMAC became tenants of the ROKA at Bonifas. All the while the Swiss and Swedish contingents and the JDO were up at Pan Mun Jom (PMJ). The Western Corridor Directorate of Public Works (DPW) executed Public Works for the benefit of UNCMAC, the facilities at PMJ, and Camps Giant, Howze, Bonifas, Edwards, GaryOwen, Greaves and Stanton. I was the last DPW on the Western Corridor when we turned over the Camps to the ROKA on 15 Jul 06. After that, the DPW devolved to a sub-DPW of the Camp Casey Garrison and moved into temporary facilities at Warrior Base and New Mexico Range (north of the Imjin River).

Comments: Just recently finished off a 2 year tour with UNCMAC. Spent first year up in the JSA as the JDO. Was present for 12th and 13th General Officer talks, first ones held in over 3 years. Was in over 50 meetings with KPA Officers, and oh the stories I could tell. For example, spent 4 hours of a 6 hour meeting arguing who's general officer would talk first. Another favorite was a meeting in which the KPA spent the first hour standing because they found they chairs they had been using for the past decade were now inadequate. Helped set up and was present for the 50th Anniversary of the Signing of the Armistice ceremonies up in the JSA. 2600 people in attendance, including heads of state, secretaries of state, defense ministers, etc. More importantly I had the distinct honor and pleasure of meeting and talking with countless veterans from 16 of the different UNC member nations. In my mind, these men were the true guests of honor.

Comments: During this time of duty there were several instances of conflict and disinformation. I can remember one instance of having a UNC meeting with the North Koreans and witnessing a burlap covered bundle of weapons being carried by a North Korean soldier to one of their buildings on the row. Another instance where a Czech soldier defected to the U.S. through the Neutral Nations Supervisory Building where he was brought to clean-up after a gathering and left unattended. A meeting of the UNC and North Koreans over the firing of a SAM on one of our aircraft over international waters. The UNC was accused by the North Koreas of our "pilot being scared of the dark and seeing things". This was my best assignment of my twenty year career in the Army.

Comments: One night in late October, I awoke completely drenched in persperation. The next morning, on a Sunday, I went to the mess hall and the smell of food nauseated me. I felt like I was getting the flu, so I went on sick call. The doctor examed me and told me to go in the next room and lie down. I heard him say he had a man who was bad sick and to send a chopper. I protested and told him I had been sicker that I was just getting the flu.

The chopper came and I was strapped to the outside. At the 121 Evac, I said I was not sick enough to be in the hospital. They said they would have the doctor evaluate me the next morning. I was assigned a bed and shortly after they brought a ROC in and put him in the bed beside of mine. He said the American doctors were sissy doctors and wanted to get back to his unit.
We compared our aches and pains and they were identical.

The next morning the nurses were taking his blood pressure and suddenly he turned a purple color and died. I thought maybe I am sick. Every night my temperature went up to about 104. They treated me for Malaria and it did no good. In the meantime, patients died almost every day. The hospital finally brought in a Japanese doctor and he asked me if I had seen any rats. I replied no. He said I had Hemmoroghic Fever. They believed the Chinese had infected rats and they came over to our side because we had mess halls. They said it was something like the Black Plague. My weght dropped from 160 to about 125 in the next several weeks. The only food I could keep down each meal was was a half slice of toast, 1 cup of pear juice, and a cup of tea. In the meantime about 85% of the other patients died.

One night in mid December, I did not have a high temperature. The Nurses were delighted. They said I was one of the lucky ones and would live. I was soon flown to a hospital in Japan.

I was one of the first victims of germ warfare.
