Comments: The widow of CPL Richard James Mentzel was told by him that he was a guard at a hospital back at the capitol. His DD214 shows his unit as Btry D 82 AAA AW Bn (Sp) APO 248
The photos she showed to me are in the field on a half track with quad 50's with the 2nd Division patch Bumper reads: 1 (triangle)2A then B-141
DD214 Box 26 foreign service 5 months 17 days my guess September '52- Feb 53..Discharged 24 Mar 53.
I do not want to know about Richard. I would appreciate knowing in general terms where his unit was Sep 52 to Feb 53. She gave me a copy of his DD214 and would appreciate knowing. He would not talk about it.
They were not married while he was in Korea.
I would appreciate it if you can help, If the answer is no, what do you suggest? Thank you.

Comments: On behalf of my grandfather, Daniel Ittershagen, I'm looking for any old friends of his from his time in the Army. He was stationed at Fort Lewis, WA, 82nd AAA, 2nd division, near the end of the war. I think he also spent some time in Alaska and Texas, but he was primarily in Washington.

He's told me stories about his time in the army and I'd love to see him reconnect with some of his old friends.

Comments: I am hoping someone might be able to help me. I am trying to find out any information regarding my father, Jaime S (Saul) Rodriguez he may have gone by Jim or Jimmy Rodriguez. I know for certain he was stationed at Fort Lewis and that he served in Korea.

Here is his information:
SP4 Jaime Saul Rodriguez ER16435131
Served March 6, 1953 - March 5, 1956
He then served in Fifth United States Army Area Reinforcement Pool
Honorably Discharged April 8th 1961
I know he was Stationed at Fort Lewis in 1955 and I believe he trained at Fort Campbell. I had always understood that he served in the 101st as a Screaming Eagle and have his Screaming Eagle patch as well as an Indianhead shoulder patch.
Popi had said he had been a paratrooper in the 101st, however I believe he also mentioned the 82nd but I could be wrong about that and the Indianhead is for the 2nd so I'm not quite sure about any of it. Is it possible he was in all 3? I don't understand exactly how it all works. I do know that he served in Korea in 1953 and 1954 when these two photos were taken.

I read somewhere that even though not active at the time some soldiers were still trained or activated in the 101st???

My popi was from Gurabo, Puerto Rico and he and my mother met in '55 when he was stationed at Fort Lewis and she was in Tacoma, WA visiting friends.
Popi instilled in me from a very young age what patriotism means and I'll never forget how whenever we were at our small town parades here in Port Angeles, WA popi would stand as the flag passed by while others stayed seated. It left a lasting impression. Here was a hispanic born in the Caribbean honoring our Country's flag while those born here, just sat there.

Anyway ~ Thank you so much for any information or help you can provide. And even more important . . . THANK YOU for your service!
I look forward to hearing from you. Take care and God bless.

Comments: The five Tutt brothers from Wolfeboro NH entered service in WWII. The older brothers were Richard, James (Jim, my grandfather), Alan and Delmar. Leon Tutt was the youngest, and the only one to remain in service after the war. Jim was severely wounded in the Battle of the Bulge, but thankfully recovered. None of the others were wounded. MSgt Leon H. Tutt was lost on 1 December 1950 near the Chongchon river in the Kunu-Ri Gauntlet. I would be interested in any information about his battery, the type of weapons used, his position in the battery, etc.

Comments: Date of this entry: 12November2014. I, Esperanza A Fernandez, am the wife of Eduardo L Fernandez, and I am writing the following in his behalf: At one time my husband was a member of this Korean War Project but we do have our entry #2329 made on 7 January 1999 in your Guest book; but life happens and weve been through several serious illnesses, house moves, and so forth. I tried to find his membership online just now and was not successful. Please help. He served with Wilbur Webster, Colonel Killalae, et al. My husband was a member of the 2D Inf Div, 82nd AAA AW Bn Sp. My husband, Eduardo L. Fernandez is a ChipYong-ni survivor. He was wounded retrieving medical supplies and ammunition with two other soldiers. After 76 major/minor surgeries he remained in active military service and retired as Command Sergeant Major. He and Guadalupe (Lou) Jurado (who also remained in active military service and retired as Chief Warrant Officer 3) were both wounded and the other courageous soldier who remains at the present time un-named (by me simply because I do not know that heros name) was killed. My husband was seriously wounded and received a Bronze Star medal with V Device for Valor but never a Purple Heart. In one of our reunions (Colorado Springs, CO), while sitting with Colonel Killalae at the Head Table, I mentioned to Colonel Killalae that I had learned that Lou Jurado, had never been recognized for saving my husbands life that day at the ChipYong-ni battle while retrieving the supplies that had been air-dropped. The Colonel knew that Lou had been wounded when he carried my husband back up the valley to the aid station. So he asked me to begin the paperwork and tell it like it happened, in response to my question, how do I write it, Colonel? He was of the opinion that both my husband and Lou had been officially recognized for their courageous action at that ChipYong-ni battle. When my husband tried to join the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 1836 here in San Antonio back in the early 90s and discovered he needed an official award of the Purple Heart, I submitted the required documents; my husband finally was officially recognized a few years back and was awarded the Purple Heart here at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. (I am of the opinion that the only reason that I was successful in obtaining the official award of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Medal for my husband is because in the narrative for the Bronze Star medal with V Device it stated that my husband had been seriously wounded.) Anyway, the most important point I am trying to make is that Guadalupe (Lou) Jurado never was awarded the Purple Heart for the same action (in ChipYong-ni) nor has he been officially recognized for saving my husbands life (Lou could had just saved himself since the battle was so fiercely intensive with mortars and bullets flying all over but he risked his own life carrying my husband back to safety and then getting himself treated for some shrapnel in his knee). He does have a Purple Heart award but not for the ChipYong-ni battle. The Colonel had asked me to write up Lou (and he would sign it) for the Distinguished Service Cross because he said that they (meaning the award determining committee) will in all likelihood downgrade it to the Silver Star. I am so sorry to say that by the time I again was able to find the witnesses and their statements, the Colonels wife died, then he became depressed, and died soon after. I became ill, my husband became ill, and Lou, himself, also became ill. Both of these men have survived massive heart attacks. All of us, are not young (spring chickens), we all are in late 70s (me) and mid 80s (Lou and my husband). I discovered from the Veterans Service Officer here in San Antonio that before I submit Jurado's recommendation for award of the Distinguished Service Cross, I first had to begin by correcting/amending Jurados military record that would include the award of the Purple Heart. I did. I submitted the recommendation. It was denied because there was no medical records available stating that Lou Jurado had been treated at that time. UNBELIEVABLE! If the combat battle was as intense as I have heard from so many of the ChipYong-ni survivors and as I have read, it stands to reason, that not every wound could had possibly been documented because the medical personnel were so very busy tending to the more serious wounded. Lou said that he was patched up after the removal of the shrapnel and sent back into combat. As many know, ChipYong-ni Battle lasted for three terrifying days (13-15 February 1951. I plan on re-submitting a reconsideration but I do not believe I, alone, will be successful. I need your help. If you, or anyone who you know, treated these two soldiers (one seriously wounded and the other had knee shrapnel), please let me know.

Comments: My father was James C. (J.C.) Darter who was held
POW in Korea.

A telegram dated Dec. 29, 1950 was sent to my
grandparents informing them that my dad had been
reported missing in action since Dec. 3, 1950.

Another telegram dated Feb. 6, 1951 states that
his name was mentioned on an enemy propaganda
broadcast.

The third telegram, dated Dec. 29, 1951, states
that his name was on a list of prisoners held by
enemy forces but, it had not been verified.

The fourth telegram was dated July 21, 1953 and it
was to inform them that my father was aboard USNT
General Hase that was due to arrive in San
Francisco Port of embarkation Fort Mason, San
Francisco, CA on Aug. 29, 1953.

The last telegram, dated Aug. 14, 1953, was
written by SF Tokyo via Mackay (??) and was from
my dad to my grandparents stating that he was on
his way home by boat.

He said that he feels pretty good for the shape
I'm in.

Does anyone remember him? He died in 1980 when I
was only 13 so I never knew much about what
happened to him. I would love to speak to anyone
who knew him and remembers anything about him. I
would certainly be grateful!!

Sincerely,

Comments: My father Cyril B. Moxham served in Korea in I believe
supply with the 82AAAW btry B. He was a WWII veteran
and an SOB. He drank a lot, smoked Lucky Strikes and
beat his wife and children. But on the other side he
was a standup guy and very funny. He died in Las Vegas
NV in 1986 from liver and kidney failure.
I remember one time when we were in Las Vegas visiting,
he sent my brother to his apartment to get a clean
shirt. My brothers and I thought it was a kind of
strange request. My old man was in his sixties at the
time an a lifetime of drinking had taken its toll on
him. My brother brought the shirt and my father laid
it on the bar stool next to him. We thought he must
have dementia. About an hour later, a thin shriveled
old man came tottering into the casino. My father saw
him immediately and picked up the shirt and walked over
to the man and they went into the restroom together.
About 5 minutes later they came out, the man's hair was
combed and his face looked clean and he was wearing the
shirt my father had sent my brother to get. One of his
friends told us later that the guy had been in Korea
and had been a Prisoner of War and that he was
homeless, he came in every week and my father took care
of him and gave him some pocket money. Did I say my old
man was an SOB.
If you remember him or have any stories I'd like to
hear, my father would never talk about his war
experience but I believe he was involved in some
harrowing situations.

I am looking for anyone who was there and might be able to confirm his capture. After 50 years my Dad (his brother) and I still want to know. Thank you all for your sacrifice for FREEDOM which we all know is not FREE!

I would like to hear from anyone who might have known my uncle. He played the trombone in the military band, as well.

Comments: I'm looking for anyone who may have known him or data about Sgt Clair C. Dauberman who was a member of D Battery. His MOS was 0060, cook. He was part of the Pa. National Guard and brought into active duty during 1950. Clair was a cousin and lost during the excursion into N. Korea. The family never heard what happened to him nor if remains were ever recovered. A DNA sample has already been provided but nothing has been heard yet. My searching is primarily for his daughter who lives in Seattle. Clair also has many other fmaily members still living in Union County, Pennsylvania

Comments: Little Joe was my uncle; sadly, we never met. He was killed before I was born. My father, John, and his siblings, Frank and Mary, kept his memory alive.

Anyone with information about Joe Errigo, your service time together, or his last days in combat, please e-mail or write. Every story is important.

Joe was awarded the Purple Heart(Posthumously), the Bronze Star, and The Oak Leaf Cluster for organizing and leading his troops across the Chong-chon River near Kujang-dong, then attempting to break through enemy road blocks. He was also a POW for awile. I would like to hear your stories.

The Army sent official notification of his status (KIA) in 1953, although it was presumed he was killed in 1950 and his grave marker says 1951.

Please let me document your stories and memories.

Keywords: 82nd AAA AW Bn, attached to the Second Infantry.

My uncle was last seen by PFC Chas Guidetti and Capt.J Smolen (neither of whom I can locate) near the Chong-chon River.
