closer to the line so that the wounded could get the care they needed before they
went into shock..I worked Most of the people I served with are no longer alive but
will answer any quires i worked in the OR.as a circulator and scrub on amputations
and wound debridments until I had enough points to rotate too Japans 343rd

Comments: My brother-in-law, DEAN BRUCE, served as an O.R. tech with MASH 8225. He was from a very small farming town in Western NE, where he still lives with his wife. He is very funny, quick witted, and I can only imagine some of the pranks he might have pulled on his buddies while in MASH 8225. Of course he is proud of the serious work that was done by his unit, and the lives that were saved. I would like to surprise him with any information I might obtain from this site, regarding someone who might remember him. So if you remember DEAN BRUCE please let me know. Thank you, and thanks to all who served in this unit. ~ Anita Bruce

Comments: If anyone has any history they would like to share with me I would be honored and greatful! My Dad's name was O'Connor P McBride, he was a nurse/medic while in Korea.He came home with malaria that was never documented. He worked at a hospital and was able to self medicate to treat it. At age 74 he had to go into a Veteran's Nursing home because my mother could no longer provide the 24 hour care he required. Due to no documentation on file of the malaria he came home with from active duty, my parents were literally wiped out financially for his care. The Stae of New York took my Dad's $2000 a month pension plus wanted additional money from my mother's very limited pension.My Dad's was no longer at home therefore his retirement income went all for his care. He was an only son/child that was drafted then as n elderly vet was screwed by the State and Federal administration financially in the end of his life.My Dad went into the nursing home weighing 109Lbs, he died weighing 67Lbs. He starved himself to death. In 1983, I promised him I would not allow feeding tubes or any other resesitative measures.I kept my promise but I live with my guilt of that promise every morning when I wake up and it is the last thing I think of before I try to sleep at night. My Dad was my HERO!!!
GOD Bless America!!
Do you like your FREEDOM? Thank a soldier/veteran!!!
Respectfully,
Siobain

Comments: I am the son of Lt. Col. Robert Newell, Commander 2nd MASH Unit, Korean War. Dad was at Ft. Lee, VA, as a major and head of the surgery dept. when the war broke out. He was accelerated to Lt. Col. to head up that unit. We were transferred to Ft. Bragg, NC, for ~3 months to get the unit together. I am not sure of the timeframes, as I was only a 6 yr. old Army brat. Also, dad didn't talk a whole lot about that period. I am seeking information about him during that time, and could possibly answer questions about him and the unit.

Comments: I'm looking for anyone who may have been working in or taken to the Mash Unit around March 7, 1951. My great uncle, DOnald Fortner was killed that day. Someone told me it was the Mash Unit near the Nakong River (Naktong? Natong? Nakdong?) I'm looking to find someone who knew him, someone who can tell me about that battle, or even about that Mash Unit. We know very little.

Comments: I arrived at MASH in July of 1951, just as they were moving to Kwandi-Re, and rotated in April of 1952. The C.O was Lt Col Robert Newell and the Personnel Officer was Capt. E. P. Quabedeau. There were about seventeen Surgeons and Seventeen Nurses with approximately a hundred enlisted men, an attached Ambulance platoon, and three Heliocoptors(when we were the front MASH). I was a clerk in Headquarters, operated a ten-drop switchboard, typed the Morning Report, the A and D report, the Mess Menu, etc.
