Comments: I wanted to let any living members of the 8228th MASH unit know that my father, a physician serving in 1953, died of ALS on March 16, 2001 at age 74. I have many pictures of his tour of duty in Korea, and he identified his friends on them. If any would like to see them, please send me an email.

Comments: I am in the process of rewriting my Dad's memoirs and notes about his military career, and in particular, his time in Korea as a Marine Helicopter Pilot with HMR 161 and later at OSAN-NI K-13.

He was one of the very few Marine pilots that knew how to get to Uijongbu (MASH 8288), particularly at night when they evaced wounded from front lines at night. He was a frequent pilot that ferryed wounded from 8228 to the hospital ships and received the DFC for one of the night time flights in fog to a hospital ship offshore.

I would welcome trading notes and/or assisting you with any information I might have. If you have any info on HMR 161 (1952 or thereabouts) let me know.

Thanks very much.

Comments: (Sorry for the multiple entries) I was a doctor in the 8228th. I remember a
visiting professor of parasitologist named Marshall Hertig. We used to call him
"Field Marshall." He didn't have any rank on his unifoo so he joked he looked
like an old surly sergeant that had been stripped of his rank.

There were many dire times of course. There was a particular moment of a poor
dying GI suffering from an annelid in addition to hemorraghic fever.

That was when we were still "under canvass." Later we were upgraded to
corrugated metal facilities. We had a "high class" team of doctors and staff
already but the improvement in facilities certainly didn't hurt.

I have a picture of several doctors seated around Barry Wood another prominent
parasitologist.

in the Korean War and have been surprised at the
numbers who were admitted to US MASH units particularly
8228 and 8055 MASH. Thank you MASH veterans who looked
after our KIWI veterans.

Keywords: I have reason to be grateful to the 8228 Mash. I was evacuated to that hospital around July 1952 as a suspect Haemorragic fever case. Fortunately for me it turned out not to be but I received the very best of attention and as as the only British soldier in there at the time I was so impressed with the whole set up but in particular I remember the FOOD! It was the best I had known our there but surprisingly this view was not shared by my American fellow patients! Anyway thank you America and in particular vets of 8228 Mash. If anyone would like to contact me I would be delighted to hear from them.A very grateful ex patient.

Comments: My Uncle served with the Lord Strathcona Horse Royal Canadians, and died in Korea in June 1952. Recently, I found the official telegram saying that he died of Haemorrhagic fever at M.A.S.H 8228. And a google search turned up this forum. Anyone who served there in June 1952, I would love to hear from you, esp. if you have photos, or can remember any Canadians.
