Comments: July 1, 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the 2IDs return to Korea after the cease fire in the Korean War. The 2ID played a major role in the Korean War and it was appropriate that the Division return to continue to play a major role in guarding Freedoms Frontier.
On that day in July, the 1st Cavalry Division was reflagged as the 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Howze which was Division HQ at the time. The 2nd Indianhead Division Association is organizing a return trip for 2IDA members that were present at the reflagging and for other DMZ veterans that would like to go. We anticipate a group of about 25-30 and are still working out the details. We are working on the eligibility for participation. We are beginning a major fundraising effort to help offset the cost of the trip for the returning veterans and need to know the level of interest in this trip. The tentative plan is to depart Los Angeles about June 26 or 27, 2015 to return about July 3. You will need a current passport. If you are interested, please let us know at 2ida.mail@charter.net. Your e-mail is not a commitment, but merely an expression of interest. The leadership of the active 2ID has generously agreed to help with planning the celebration events and perhaps some tours of the area. The 2ID Commanding General and Command Sergeant Major are already at work This can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please let us know now so we can continue our planning.

Comments: Over 1,400 Currahees have made the supreme sacrifice for our country. You may have known some of them. But what you may not know is that there is no single memorial to all the soldiers of our Regiment who have been killed in action. This situation is about to change. Work has already started on a memorial, but your help is needed. At present, there is a need to raise $38,000. This is the unfunded dollar amount required to complete this memorial. This tribute to our fallen is being paid for by people like you. The Army has provided the land; however, soldiers, and veterans, along with Currahee friends and family, will have to come together if we are to complete this project. Now is the time to step up and take action. Check out the 506th Association web page www.506infantry.org/projectstable.html to see what the memorial will look like and how you can make this dream a reality.

Comments: Get the latest information on Currahee Rendezvous 2009 on the 506th Association web page www.506infantry.org/projectstable.html . No this is not another reunion, nor is it just a gathering of veterans. This is something very special and will be remembered for its unique approach to the homecoming of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 506th Infantry Regiment. Our regiment is currently deployed to Afghanistan and COL Pete Johnson, Regimental Commander, has decided to have a three day celebration when the troops return to Fort Campbell. Plans are now being made and YOU are invited. That is correct, all 506th Veterans are invited to attend CURRAHEE RENDEZVOUS 2009. Although the Currahees will return to CONUS in late winter or early spring, in order to allow for block leave and event planning, the Rendezvous is scheduled for May 28- 30, 2009.

Also, this document may prove useful to veterans, by the inclusion of units and operational attachments listed, offering proof of service in the Combat Zone north of the Imjin River. Many servicemen, like myself who served in the combat area of operations along the Demilitarized Zone during this time period, were exposed to Agent Orange and are suffering from illness related to their exposure, including the possible genetic affects that exposure to Agent Orange may have had on our children. For information please see: (http://www1.va.gov/Agentorange/page.cfm?pg=2) and also see (http://www.vba.va.gov/bln/21/benefits/herbicide/). Additionally, some DMZ Veterans require unit location documentation for PTSD - Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in order to apply for treatment and appropriate benefits as applicable. This information may also be useful to Surviving Spouses and/or Children, in the event the servicemember is deceased.

Comments: Firefight on the Hill


This poem may be a whole lot late
But I bet you Vets can still relate
That long ago firefight on the hill
The memory of which is very real

We were on that cold Korean hill
Being there certainly wasnt a thrill
The night was cold and dreary
The wind blew, it was never weary

Suddenly you could hear bugles blow!
We knew Chinese were about to show
Call Division, get the some light!
The lights came on, lit the hill so bright

The search lights cast an eerie glow
You could see movement far below
Quick, we need more lights to bear
Heavy mortars lit the hill. with a flare

Just then up the hill the Chinese came
We shouted, get ready, take good aim
Our rifles cracked all around
The mortar fired another round

The Chinese fired, and did their worst
We met them with machine gun burst
They had enough and sounded retreat
What a relief, we had them beat

Then the bugles sounded as before
They were going hit us with still more
They swarmed the hill, our situation dire
We met their charge with artillery fire

Our shells hit their ranks, with a blast
Weve got them now, they cant last
Run tumbling down the hill, they went
We had beat them, our lines not bent

Now comes the task we dread
Find the wounded and count the dead
Give thanks to God now we Pray
We have made it to another day

I was at Camp St. Barbara in 1970 when it was the home of I Corp Artillery. Camp St. Barbara was located just a couple of miles west of the Rodriquez, also on route 37. Camp St. Barbara was on route 37, at the bridge over the Hantan river. It was just north of the bridge on the old section of 37 that runs parallel to the new 4 lane highway.

Here is a sat view of the area, showing where Camp St. Barbara was located in relation to the range.

Comments: I was stationed at Cp Casey in 1960-61 in the 17th Trans Bn, which was located in Happy Valley. Happy Valley is located near where the roads from gate 1 and gate 2 meet. There was a gas station there, and just behind it, on the other side of the little bridge was the entrance to Happy Valley. Pomeroy Pistol Range was also there.

I have a web page with all of my old assignments on it with pictures, and would love to know what unit is there now, and maybe get a few pictures of the entrance and some of the buildings there now. We had all quonset huts back then. I remember each squad tearing out the plywood floor in there hut, and mixing cement and pouring a cement floor. Big improvement. :)

Anyone that may be able to take a few pictures and e mail them, my e mail is wd4ngb@charter.net

Comments: Saying "hooah" to all who were in 2nd ID and the JSA. I commanded in both. I have an earlier entry, basically stating I was the last US Company Commander for HHC, UNCSB-JSA (deactivated 31 Oct 04). Both (2ID/JSA) were great missions and great places to serve. A ton of great memories!

Comments: The 4th Brigade Combat Team and the 506th Council at Fort Campbell, KY are looking for 506th historical artifacts that they can display in the 506th regimental areas at Fort Campbell. If you have any 506th-related artifacts/momentos from the 1st BN, 506th Infantry in South Korea that you would be willing to DONATE, contact 1SG(R) John E. Foley (C Co, 1st BN, 506th, 1990-1991) at 270-798-3215 or chagress@outdrs.net . John is the Museum Technician at the Don F. Pratt Memorial Museum at Fort Campbell, and notes, “the government has a policy against loans . . . stories and pictures are even more valuable in many cases than the artifacts. Often times many of the most mundane items such as belts, pants, socks, etc. that date from that time are very valuable to the museum for making accurate displays to portray how the soldiers lived and survived.”

Comments: SCHERERVILLE, Ind. - Pfc. Lowell Wayne Bellar was just 19 when he died more than 50 years ago during a battle in North Korea. On Friday, nearly 200 people gathered to finally give him a proper burial on what would have been his 74th birthday.
"Guys always (swear) to each other, 'We're not going to leave anyone on the field.' Well, we know it happens," said Frank Darrington, a Vietnam veteran and commander of the Munster post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Bellar was killed on Dec. 1, 1950, when U.S. troops were surprised by a Chinese army assault near North Korea's Chosin Reservoir. The troops were forced to withdraw under fire, leaving behind many who had been hurriedly buried in shallow graves.
In 2001, officials notified Bellar's family that a joint Korean-American team had found remains believed to be his.
Joan McFall, who was 12 when her brother was killed, provided DNA to the Army on the chance it would help identify him. She was shocked when it matched.
"It was just unbelievable. I could not believe they found him," she said.
"We should be happy in one respect - that he's finally home - and sad in another sense," said Bellar's older brother, George, of Munster. "This is the beginning of some closure. At least I hope so."
A horse-drawn caisson carried Bellar's flag-draped casket a half-mile to his final resting place, where bagpipers played "Amazing Grace." A 21-gun salute followed, and three doves symbolizing peace were released in Bellar's honor.
Eliseo Castaneda, a Marine veteran of the Korean War from East Chicago, said he served in the Chosin Reservoir.
"I get a lot of satisfaction in knowing that one in our band of brothers has come home," he said. "It brings back a lot of memories. We don't want to forget about the people who died for our country."
