Comments: I was stationed at Camp Carson, Colorado when my friend Pfc John Weeks and i were transferred to Service Battery 936 in November, 1950 and went with them to Korea landing in Pusan in February, 1951. We were in a staging area for about 2 weeks for our equipment to arrive and then travelled north to a bibwac area outside Tague, Korea for another 4 weeks training. Then boarded a ship travelling around Korea to Inchon harbor where we all floated and headed north of Soel, Korea to Uejonbou where we set up our guns in support of the Turkish brigade. I rotated back to the States in December, 1951 along with my friend John Weeks. I remember Captain Morrow and Master Sargeant Terry and a fellow with a nickname of Goat Calahan. Captain Johnson was the battery commander. My friend and I were assigned to the motor pool and service battery.

call sign for radio traffic is FIREBALL. So that makes me

He worked with Brown and Root for years as an electrician. I can remember sending care packages to him in big boxes with all kinds of things in it. I can remember my mother making him a service hat and sending it over. My brother was 18 years older than I. Thanks!

Comments: My dad is Don Garringer. He was drafted into the army out of Lamesa,
Texas in late 1951. After reporting first to Ft. Sill, OK and then Ft.
Riley, KS, in August, 1951, my then 16 year old mother boarded a bus
in Lamesa and headed to find my dad at Ft. Riley. When she arrived
she began wandering around the base asking if anyone knew my
father. She finally ran into a soldier who knew my father and promptly
told my mother that he wasn't sure she really wanted to find my dad as
my dad was an "angry, sour man". (He WAS angry that he had been
drafted but he did his duty) After they were married a few days later,
he was assigned to FECOM. You all know what that meant. He arrived
in Korea on January 7, 1952 assigned to the 936th FAB HQ and served
until he returned back to the States on January 3, 1953. While in
Korea, in September, 1952 he was promoted to E-7. After returning to
the States, this reluctant soldier managed to stay involved with the US
Army and the New Mexico National Guard until his retirement in 1988
as a General. I have never known him to be anything but funny, fair
and extremely disciplined. I can't imagine his state of mind when he
was drafted in 1952 or his behavior that prompted the soldier's reply
to my mother. I have frequently asked him about Korea. He is
reluctant to discuss it much. He once told me, "If you weren't there,
you wouldn't understand." Maybe so. I have friends that served in
Vietnam who feel the same way. Still, I remain curious about my
father's service in Korea. If you knew him I would appreciate hearing
from you. He is still alive, still married to the same girl and is doing
very well. Thanks for listening.

Comments: Beryl Blew from Kansas is my dad and he served with the Battery "A" of the 936th Field Artillery from Dec1952-Jan1954. He was with the wire section. I am especially looking for some of his tent-mates from that period of time so they can correspond. One name that he has mentioned is Dick Carleton and I think men named Wise and Long.
My brother is a retired Army Major (Grenada and Desert Storm) and I served in the Marines and Army National Guard. We have each had the opportunity to serve in Korea under less hostile conditions.
Dad is active and healthy, but not very talkative about his time in Korea. While we want to respect this, we would love any information about his unit and what life was like for him and the other soldiers. If you remember him or were in the 936th during that time, I'd sure appreciate the contact.
Thanks.

Comments: I arr'd in Korea in mid-summer of "52, assigned to Charlie Btry 936 FA BN,155 howitzers towed. Charlie Six was easy-going Capt, Gerber, WW II vet. The 936 had recently been chewed up by Charlie arty. Stayed in position thru armistice except for moves to support UN forces during late Battle of Kumsong Salient...fired huge amt of shells "Battery 200 rounds." Got some incoming in base position. Lieut Morse was Five and we split dutiesd of exec, living in a heated small cabin exec post we built above the 155s. Morse claimed to have been a pilot on Eastern Air Lines but no such name ever flew there, post-armistice check showed.

Never got to know him well but he was OK as XO. Both of us were promoted to 1st Lieut. same day. I was sent to hill Dagmar several times to be F'wd Observer for the Aussie unit of the First Commonwealth Div and dodged mortar shells and some Russian 152 shells. I got a tank, machine gun nest, many other tagets. Got gook sniper on fwd slope disturbing Aussie chow line with eight inch howitzer. Later did a time-on-taget with eye Corps arty for commanding general...it looked like a small atom bomb going off. My recon sgt a Bruno Reh, amateur heavy boxer, red hair with twirled moustache. Got him from pvt to SFC quickly. Personally, I supported MacArthur and was disappointed we didn't go north again.

Got a bar being replaced at Eye Corps rear O'Club back to btry, set up spare squad tent, got unlimited Asahi beer from Chopsticks Charlie atInchon, ice from a sgt at the railhead and had probably the most forward EM bar on UN lines.

Most important event - son Curt born Dec. 27, '52. When war over,I became a journalist in New York City after year in grad school on GI Bill.

Comments: My Dad was with this company from Dec 1951- Nov 1952. His name was Charles E. Eutsey. He passed away when I was very young and I never had the chance to ask him about his military service. If any one remembers him and would be willing to tell me of their service time in Korea I would be most appreciative. I'm putting together information about my Dad for my grandchildren.
