Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: My unit is the 135th Forward Surgical Team which has lineage back to November 1944 in Belgium but most notably from its time in the Korean War from November of 1951 to following the War in February 1955.

The unit has a Merritorious Unit Citation as well as a Korean Presidential Unit Citation from that time frame.

Is there anyone that has information from the unit at that time? I am looking for names of personnel, pictures, references, full citations and any information that would help to paint any part of the picture of the unit during its historic phases.


Thank you in advance, this request will be open indefinitely no matter when you read this, I am interested. Email will be best point of contact as I leave Korea in 2016.

Unit: 3RD DIVISION 15TH REGIMENT

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: I remember spending some time in a medical facility (MASH unit?) while serving in Korea.
I remember waking up in what appeared to be a ward and being greeted by a GI in a white medical type coat he wore Sergeant stripes on his sleeve He said something like oh so youre finally awake and then he went out and a short time later he returned with another person a doctor he had captain insignia on his collar. The doctor checked my (vitals) pulse, temperature, heart rate and so forth and asked me how do you feel? I answered fine and asked what am I doing here? The doctor said that I was unconscious when I arrived and that I had been out for a couple of days and that all of the details were in my files and that the Sgt would forward a copy to my company. He and the Sgt then left the room and soon the Sergeant returned with my clothes, he had everything, (including all of my combat gear) He told me to get dressed and we were then joined by another Officer who turned out to be a helicopter pilot. The Sergeant told me that I had been discharged from there and was being returned to my unit. The Sergeant handed the pilot a handful of papers the pilot put them into his briefcase and then we left. We soon arrived at 15th regimental headquarters as soon as we were settled down (on the helicopter landing zone) we were met by an NCO who took us into the regimental headquarters office, the pilot then handed my file to the NCO behind the desk. I was then loaded into a jeep to be returned to easy company headquarters and ultimately returned to active duty.

Comments: Veterans day 2002 is comming to a close and I find myself missing the greatest man in my life, my hero, my grandfather. He never talked about the wars that he served in (whenever I asked he would just say he served with heros).

For a time he raised me when I was a kid, and was always enjoying every second of life. He was a man of integrity, a man of honor, and I have done my best to follow in his footsteps.

I know that he was a medic in the Army. Serving in the ETO during WWII, and in Korea. His death was a great loss for me. He had called me as I was leaving for the Persian Gulf War as a Navy Hospital Corpsman assigned to the Marine Corps. I was on my way to a meeting with my Capt. and was unable to talk to him. He passed away two weeks later. I never had a chance to say goodbye and to tell him that I loved him. So, I guess this is my way of saying it.

Now, as I prepare to defend my country again against terrorism, I wanted to tell him that, I love him and I understand. I can never say that I have made the same sacrifces that he had but, after the Gulf War and Somalia... I can truly say that I understand his love, his dedication, his commitment to his country and to his family.
I will always do my best to follow in his footsteps.

I wish that could only know what units he was assigned to during the two wars. So, I ask anyone who knew Glenn Mcdonald Hicks from Tennessee to please let me know what you remember about him.

To all Veterans out there that may read this...thank you for your courage and love for this country and for the love you have shared to your families. They may never fully understand the brevety of your sacrifices but, they will always live free and know your love for them.

Comments: My dad, Captain Walter Glenn Goodwin, Jr., DDS, served in a MASH unit in Korea sometime around 1951-53. He was an Oral Surgeon.

He died in 1971. In retrospect, I believe he was, in a roundabout way, a belated casualty of that horrible war. We now know that many who survive war carry deep psychological wounds from their experiences.

I was instilled as a child in his beliefs in Duty, Honor, Country.

At the time of my father's death, I was a senior in high school. I lacked any perspective on the depths of his pain until it was too late to share his load.

Though his parting advice to me regarding possible military service was to join any branch BUT the Army, I am a Vietnam-era paratrooper vet, choosing to serve in what was already an unpopular occupation.

If anyone knew my dad in Korea, please drop me a note. I do not even know what MASH unit he served in, but I feel a need to learn as much as is possible about his circumstances, friends, and the like, from that terrible time.

Thank you!

Bill Goodwin
