Comments: I would like to correct an error that i posted on Jan 13, 2018. I did serve in the 987 starting in Jan 1954, but the 987 was disbanded in ,i believe, in September of 1954 and everyone that still had time to serve in Korea was shipped to other units. I stayed in Korea and spent time with the 5th Fa Group Hdq. and I Corp Hdq, and worked as mechanic in those units also. Left Korea in May 1955 and was discharged in June of 1955

Comments: I was a FO with Lt Sheridan(Mass) with A Battery attached to

Capital ROK Div, 21 April- 2 June 52, 20 July 52- 9 August 52.

There was a period I am not sure of the number of nights the

action was heavy and planes dropped flares all night for a

number of nights, I don't remember how many. I was wondering if

any one remembers this and where were we and on what Hill. Lt
Sheridan

was sent back to the states (shell shocked) and I was

transferred to the 555FA. The commanding officer was 1st Lt

Lloyd Johnson.I was looking for info as to what really took

place. What, where, causalities, etc. Is there a unit history

and A battery roster available? Appreciate any and all

information. Thanks, I moved from Iowa to Miss. so have new

address and phone number.

Comments: I knew Bob Afflerbach when we were both students at St. Mary's University, San Antonio,TX. We were both members of the ROTC there. I find no mention of Bob in these pages, but he was apparently killed 12 June 1953 (at Kumsong ?). He was declared MIA and presumed dead 13 June 1954. He was a member of Battery A, 987th Armored FA Bn. He was born in Runnels, TX. I think he should be remembered.

Comments: the only injured members up until Jan 1952 were some replacements who had been poorly trained and shought they could "help" a round in with a sledge hammer.
Half of the unit equipment was lost during the Chinese Spring offensive in April 1951.
The charging Red Bull was with us from before we were activated in Canton, and dated back to my entrance in 1948 and before. Anyone who claims to have "invented" it is sadly mistaken.

Comments: My father, Col. Walter E. Gunster, was in Korea in 1953 and 1954. I am trying to help him recall places and names of his time in Korea. I found lots of slides of orphans that the battalion helped by allowing them to scavage their dump. The orphanage was at Inchon, north of Seoul on the road to Kumhwa. The photos of all of those children is heart rendering. There are also slides of "The Bunker" G2 and G3 Eighth Army, ROK Bank 987 Colors and Honor Guard, "RSOP" in Valley opposite 987 FA, Lt. Palmer in 987 L-19 buzzing OP at range Hwachon Reservoir, Office of Commanding
General Eighth Army, "Papa-San" hill, and one of the 987 Crest painted for a road sign.

I will visiting my father, who lives in Murfreesboro, TN, this summer for an extended stay and I will be trying to document his take on Korea at that time.

If anyone remembers my father or has any information that might be helpful to "jog" his failing memory I would most appreciate it!

Thank you in advance,

Comments: Hello, my name is Mike Riggins, Bob is my dad for whom I am very proud of, and so is his grandkids. My purpose of doing this on this sight is simple, I am helping my dad locate members of his unit, and I am trying to figure out all info on him, I have bought a period uniform for him and have bought several medals for a display case that I am having custom built for him, but am having problems trying to locate anyone who may have some old photographs or newspaper clippings to put in a album for him, so far I have recieved 6 but am in need of several more, they don't have to be of just my dad but of other people and units he was attached to, My purpose for doing this is that all of his original things he had was destroyed when my grandparents garage burned, he has wrote to St. Louis, Mo. to try and get his discharge papers, and they told him that they were lost due the fire they had there. I am trying to recieve enough things for the photo album to get it done in enough time so my family and I can present it to him on his birthday (may 12) this year. I know it is a big thing to ask for but I would like to make it a gift to my dad that would not be forgotten like they labeled the war. His last 6 or 7 years has been pretty rough, he has been in and out of the hospitals, having to go through some pretty bad surgeries, lost two of his yoes on his right foot. He lives alone by his self with nothing but time. I would like to hear from other veterans who served with him to try and get this done for dad, he doesn't know that I am doing it for him as I want it to be a big surprise for his birthday, So any help will be greatly appreciated, HELP make my dad feel like somebody again. You can contact me at my e-mail sight or can write or send info to my home at 832 S. Illinois St. Litchfield, Il. 62056 I would also like this opportunity to say THANK YOU to the veterns for my freedom that I sit and enjoy every day, I will forever be greatful, THANK YOU Bob's oldest son Mike
