Comments: My father was a navy Corpsman and served in korea about 1950-52.
I know he was attached to the 1st marine, but do not know any details of that service as he would never talk about Korea. He would go on about all other aspects of his service, but would get all pale when ever asked about korea and just say he was there. If anyone knew him there please let me know.
Thank you.

Comments: Hello, I am looking for anybody that might of known
my father, his name was Willie Stonewall Jackson. He
might of been known by the nickname of Stony or Red.
He was in A company and was injured Sept 4 1950 in
the second battle of Naktong Bulge. As I understand
his Company was overrun by the Chinese and most of
his Company including his commanding officer were
killed at close range. The few that survived were
scattered, I would like to know what happened that
day from someone that was there and would like to
share it with Me. It is like a big hole in my life
not knowing, my Father would not talk about it, and I
found out that he had been recommended for a silver
star. He was never given the star for some reason,
but I would like to find out more about his service.
On a different note, I would like to thank all those
that served in that war for your service, a lot of
people say that but I have the highest respect for
those that had to or are fighting in wartime

Comments: THE 1ST.PROVISIONAL MARINE BRIGADE(REINFORCED) COMMANDED BY BRIGADIER GENERAL EDWARD A.CRAIG, WAS ACTIVATED ON THE SEVENTH OF JULY,1950, AND WAS DEACTIVATED, AND JOINED THE 1ST.MARINE DIVISION ON THE
THIRTEENTH OF SEPTEMBER,1950. WHILE ENGAGED IN THE
BATTLE TO HOLD THE PUSAN PERIMETER, THE BRIGADE TRAVELED MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED EIGHTY MILES IN LESS
THAN A MONTH, WHILE MOVING TO ATTACK POSITIONS. THREE
MAJOR ENGAGEMENTS WERE ENTERED INTO IN ADDITION TO NUMEROUS SMALL UNIT ACTIONS. THE BRIGADE WAS SHORT OF
MEN, AND THE THREE BATTALIONS WERE MADE UP OF ONLY TWO
COMPANIES, INSTEAD OF THE USUAL THREE COMPANIES EACH.
FROM CHINGDONG-NI TO SACHON, TO BOTH BATTLES OF THE
NAKTONG, THE MARINES FOUGHT AGAINST A NUMERICALLY
SUPERIOR ENEMY, YET THEY DID NOT FAIL TO TAKE THEIR
ASSIGNED OBJECTIVES. IN THESE THIRTY-ONE DAYS OF COMBAT, THE MARINE BRIGADE MET, DEFEATED, AND LARGELY
DESTROYED THE 83RD.MECHANIZED BRIGADE, THREE REGIMENTS
OF THE 4TH.NORTH KOREAN DIVISION, AND A BRIGADE OF THE 9TH.NORTH KOREAN DIVISION. CASUALTIES COMMITTED
ON THE ENEMY BY MARINE GROUND, AND MARINE AIR ATTACK
WERE APPROXIMATELY 3,400 KILLED, 9,600 WOUNDED, AND
69 CAPTURED. THERE WERE EIGHT ENEMY TANKS MET, AND
DESTROYED, AND LARGE AMOUNTS OF WEAPONS AND VEHICLES
CAPTURED. DESPITE THIS REMARKABLE COMBAT RECORD, THE
LOSSES TO THE MARINES HAD BEEN COSTLY. THE SECOND
BATTLE OF THE NAKTONG COST THE MARINES 220 CASUALTIES,
OF WHICH 39 MARINES AND NAVY CORPSMEN WERE KILLED IN
ACTION. THE 1ST.PROVISIONAL MARINE BRIGADE BATTLE

Comments: Searching for my cousin, Rogene Howell Kilpatrick who is now in his last battle. All indications are he was in the 1st provisional marine brigade (noted on roster in online data at the marine museum) at the Pusan Perimeter and thus I am searching for the remainder of his Korea history with the 1-5-1. I get confused with regiments and brigades but it seems this is 1st Marine Div - 5th Battalion, 1st Brigade? I need to verify his history to get his DD214 updated because the form (from 1954 data) states in remarks that records were lost. I am confident (based on his oral record and on the roster on record in the marine museum) that he deserves whatever medals were earned by that unit in that time (1950-53).
My cousin has never talked much about this experience. He and his wife are childless. His wife never encouraged any veteran interaction and they have never made efforts to seek VA help except a recent application for a DD214 (which is incomplete) primarily for the purpose of funeral/ burial markers.

I'd like to find the records of his service. I'd like to get the medals he deserves. I'd like to see he gets them before it is too late for him to know his service is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

unit attached to the First Marines (Marine Bn Commander was Smith and
the Regimental Commander was Litzenberg) from Inchon invasion thru
the evacuation of Hungnam on Christmas Eve, 1950. The Marines used us
as close support weapons, not as AA defense. I am proud of that service!
The Marines kept us informed and no matter what, I always felt secure. It
was cold and bitter fighting, and the Marines suffered terribly, but always
nobly and always with honor. I served again alongside Marines in Vietnam
twice. Same story! I'm proud of my 22 years service and proud to have
been an honorary Marine.

I need to interview some Marine veterans of Korea who now live in Tarrant County, TX, or who lived there when they joined the Corps. Any phase of Korea is fine, 1950-1953.
It is vital that the memories of those who were there are not left out of the historical record and too many people today forget or never knew what Korea was like.
Any help is greatly appreciated

Comments: My father Srgt. Glenn E. McIntyre served the USMC in Korea from 1951 to 1953. He was a machinest for an amphibius (spelling) unit. He belonged to the 6th Battalion platoon 166. One story I remember him sharing besides getting his dog drunk on my fathers B.Day, was the story of Bed Check Charlie. For those not familiar, B.C. charlie flew an old bi-wing plane and would drop molitove cocktail bombs on the camps below, keeping our fathers from getting much needed sleep. He said once B.C charlie flew by two jets would come screaming up behind him but they had difficulty shooting him down because he could fly so close to the trees and ground and the jets (corsairs I beleive) could not. But eventually B.C. charlie was sent to the landing strip in the sky by those same Fighter pilots. Sorry if I bored anyone or got anything wrong for those of you that were there. Anyway if anyone served with my father or recalls the name or has a story about my father, the youngman I never knew, I'd love hearing from you. Thanks, God Bless America, and Happy Memorial Day.

Comments: First I would like to apologize if this is not the appropriate
Internet page to do this, but here goes. My wife Marcy is the
daughter of Bob Resnick, who was in the 1st Marines and in
the Chosin Res. Bob died last year. His being a 1st Marine
was not recognized at the funeral. Marcy's brother has his
discharge papers, that's it. He never spoke of Chosin to his
daughter or his son, but spoke to me about it several years
before he died (he did not give much details). My wife was
shocked to learn that her Dad never spoke of it. We do not
have anything related to Bob Resnick's experience or whether
he ever received any recognition for his service. I am looking
for anyone who knew Bob, or any information on how I can
pass Bob's Marine experience on to my son (Bob's grandson)
and his descendants. We do have some letters Bob wrote to
his family while he was in Korea which is a good starting place.
However he only wrote about the cold and how much he
missed his family, and naturally did not give any details about
what he was really going through. --Davi

Comments: My father served with allot of you I'm sure, since he was part of the 1st Mar Div. He came up with us to Utah helping me and my wife move, and ended up leaving the book Marines of Autumn by James Brady behind. I just got through reading it, and all I can say is that America is lucky to have men like all y'all. My dad's name is Milt Pierce from Mobile, AL. If any of y'all recognize that name and want to get in touch send me your number and I'll patch it through to him. God Bless the Marine Corps!
