Comments: PFC Ernest Collazo was in Korean in 1952. I have all of his military documents (30 yrs) except for his reserve and Korean War Service from 1951 - 1953. I have several photos of him with other Soldiers but nothing that indicates his assigned Unit. There is a photo that shows a SSI patch that looks like it could be the Infantry Training Patch from Ft Benning GA. However, he attended Basic Training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. Someone suggested that he and the other young Soldiers were mostly part of the training staff for South Korean NCO's and Officers. Again, However, the photos I have show the team moving large 50 gallon barrels and many heavy trucks. In none of the photos are they wear combat gear, except for looks like guard duty. Please help me fill in the blanks for this Soldier's career.

Comments: Hi all, I'm grandson of PFC George Muchel, served in Korean War in KMAG in early 50's. I was trying to see if anyone knew him or had access to more information. He passed away when I was too young to start asking about his experiences in Korea and have always been curious to know more. Details I know based on patches/badges/pins of his is that he was part of KMAG and often worked along side the South Koreans. He has what I assume is a collar pin which is a signal corp insignia, but from stories I was told he was a radio operator. I don't know any specific units or areas he operated in and wad hoping someone out there knew more than I.
I found in his belonging 8th infantry division patch as well as 45th infantry division patches so I'm confused whether he was part of one of those divisions or if they were souvenirs from buddies also has a 7th army patch. Any help would be appreciated.

Comments: To whom it may concern:

My Grandfather was KMAG, 8202nd Army unit. Looking to see if any veterans know of him and have any stories about him while in country. I don't have any information other than his DD214, but was drafted in 1951 and did 2 years while leaving as a Sergeant and received the Commendation ribbon, with 1 bronze service star. He passed away this summer, great run. Always talked about his service in Korea (not divulging anything, other than he was there and it changed his life) and influenced me as a third generation military member. His name is James (Jim) Walter Reese, from Rolling Prairie Indiana during his enlistment. Great guy, went on to teach for 53 years before retiring.

Comments: I'm a Korean War historian investigating circumstances that lead to extremely high casualties between Changbong-ni and Hoengsong (Massacre Valley) February 11-13, 1951.

A number of KMAG officers were captured, and most died while POWs. During a recent research trip to Carlisle Barracks, I located 8th Army General Orders containing awards to KMAG officers who were mostly with the 10th,16th and/or 21st Regiments of 8th ROK during that battle. Their citations are revealing important perspectives of the action, including the more unknown conditions facing the South Korean 8th ROK who were surrounded by up to six Chinese divisions the first night. Result was some 9,000 South Korean casualties and almost 2,000 Americans in 24 hours.

I hope to find any surviving KMAG people to interview for my book on this battle. Have finally located the official investigation at National Archives, most of which has never been published.

Any help would be very gratefully accepted, especially on behalf of those who died on death marches. Please contact me if you were there or you knew any of the following men.

WILLIAM BOLTON (died as POW)
DONALD DIAZ (died as POW)
ANDREW GOODWIN (captured but survived the war)
RAYMOND GREIS (died as POW)
EDWARD KOLOFER (WIA, survived)
HOMER LINDSAY (died as POW)
FRED PICKERING (died as POW)
ELWIN WHALEY (died as POW)

Thank you for your help. This action was initially covered up and then overshadowed by the victory at Chipyong-ni two days later.

I think he worked in HQ having to do with transporting ROKA replacement troops to the front. He said he rode all over Korea in a jeep but never talked about anything specific that he had done. He was however awarded a Bronze Star medal for his Korean service.

Comments: Assigned as Advisor to 1701 Engineer Utility Detachment, who were effectively Post Engineers for all rear area bases of ROKA. Sent to KMAG Rear in Pusan to oversee construction of base for 1801 Engineer Service Group from June 52-Dec52. Work force included unit training for first four Engineer Construction Bn. in ROKA. Then back to Taegu HQ with added duty as Asst. S-5, advising on all rear area construction for ROKA.
At the time I was one of only three 2ndLT among the 1500 KMAG officers, where LTCOL was most common rank. This gave me problems in overcoming loss of face for Korean officers I advised.as KMAG norm was Advisors were same or one rank below officer being advised. This happened due to an error by Reserve Control Group in giving me MOS of 7110 Construction Engineer based on my civilian construction experience,
when I should have been 1331 Engineer Combat Bn Platoon Leader.
There was a real shortage of 7110's in Korea, and I found out after arrival that that MOS was supposed to be for field grade officers, so they expected a Major. Lucky me.
Would be happy to talk to anyone about that period.

Comments: I served as Communication adviser with the 23rd Regt., 3rd ROKA Division. Two advisers who preceded me were KIA. Division senior advisor, Colonel Jack Evans, was a Mississippi National Guard officer who had been called to active duty. I had 3 Infantry officer advisers in the 23rd during my time: Majors Hare, White, and La Pointe. The latter was a superb adviser. Of the first two, one was an alcoholic and the other left due to family problems.

When I arrived the Division fronted Hill 1049, adjacent to the Hwacheon reservoir. Two other ROKA divisions complemented our ROKA Corps, the 5th and 8th . After facing off a huge contingent of Chi-com forces and capturing thousands, our Corps subsequently relocated to the Punchbowl replacing the US 40th and 45th Infantry divisions.

I received the Bronze Star for my support and actions.

Comments: I served in KMAG based north of Pusan. Was an advisor to the 1001st ROKA Engineer Base Supply Depot located Northwest of Pusan. Over half the time period which I was stationed there, I had no local Officer to report to. I signed a Major's name and noted it was signed by me on tons of requsitions for supplies which we obtained from the US Army Corps of Engineers Supply Depot located in the local area. Now if you use Google Earth and do Street View you will see that area is very modern today, with high rise buildings and super highways all over!

Would like to contact anyone that was at KMAG REAR during the time from of Nov 1951 to Apr 1953.

My assigned duty was in the motor pool maintenance shop. I guess I kind of supervised the Korean civilian mechanics that worked on our vehicles. I was promoted to SP5 while I was there. When I left Korea in March 1967, I was discharged from active duty in Ft Lewis, WA.

I recall MSG Chevchenko went with some ROK SF and Marines aboard a troop carrying submarine for an operation. I believe the Navy gave him an honorary submariner badge. back to the new MACV, emergency leave back to KMAG HQ - 3 month Cuban Missile Crisis extension MG Sidney Wooten CG. Was an interesting time. Visited a lot of KMAG and MAAG units. Mostly as a Gopher (go for this, go for that). Was wondering if anyone else did the TDY thing. I have met a Marine and a former MSG from EUSA Hq who did it. I actually met the EUSA AG SGM who did the order cutting in Sierra Vista, AZ. There were strict troop levels in places like Vietnam so they sent people in 89 days at a time. Actually helped me out. When I PCS's to Vietnam in 1966, I knew the lay of the land a bit. Taught me that an NCO could do a lot on his own if given a good mission and the responsibility. Had an Uncle WWII Europe and Pacific who ended up with a KMAG element in 1950 from Japan - not sure for how long but he one time said he walked from Seoul to the Pusan Perimeter and they had not a single round of AP ammo for 105mm Howitzers. Name was William Lonski with various ranks MSG twice, corporal several times as well. A real old time Soldier.

Comments: Looking for any relatives or friends of Sp-4 Russell A. W. Poindexter who died of injuries in vehicle accident July 1961 near Pop-san-Po, Korea. I was a passenger in that vehicle and Sp-4 Poindexter and myself were med-evaced to the 121st Hosp near Seoul, where he died. I have spent much time over the last 40 years to locate any relatives of his without success. If anybody has any contact info I'd greatly appreciate receiving it.

Comments: Hi I'm looking for Robert Ray who was in South Korea during 1957 through 1958 in KMAG. He was a friend of my father. My father's name is John Cohen. It is very important that I contact Robert Ray. Last known city he lived while serving in Korea at that time was Chicago, I think. If there is another possible way through the military resource which I can find him I would surely appreciate it. Thank you for your assistance. I think Robert should be between 72-76 years of age.
