served in the US Marine Corps (Staff Sergeant, 1st Marine Division) during the Korean War.
He was wounded by a mortar round during fighting on East Hill while counterattacking with
Col. Reginald Myers at Hagaru-ri. A graveside service in his memory on Monday, March 26,

When he was sick and had a stroke at an old age, as the ambulance techs rolled him out he hollored wait, sit me up, and hand me my marine hat. He wanted to be rolled out sitting up with his marine hat. Tough man. Anyway I would love to know anyone who served with him or knew him.

I vaguely remember something about the Chosin Resevoir, but have no documentation or other information to determine validity. He has since passed and my family is trying to put together family history, etc. He was also a big Bronc, Saddle Bronc, Bull Rider from Mellette County, SD and is in Casey Tibbs Hall of Fame.

Comments: I was wondering if anyone knows of a machine gunner
named Robert Silverthorn from the 1st Marine
Division. He was wounded in action on a hill at the
Chosin Resevoir, one of five that survived the battle
from a squad of seventy five. He marched out and was
treated for frostbite to his feet. He did not speak
of his experiences to his family and as a distant
relative he told me a few things when I returned from
Iraq. After being discharged he was awarded the
Silver Star and Purple Heart but the citations do not
appear in his service record. He was with the 1st
from the start of the conflict until his evacuation
to Japan after Chosin. Any information would be
appreciated. God Bless our military.....

He told me he was at Inchon and the Chosin Reservoir. The Communication Platoon section of this website has a search for him and others posted in 2002 by a relative of one of his buddies.

He retired from the Postal Service.

I am posting this to provide closure to any of his buddies who are searching for him. My dad, all my uncles, and one aunt served during WW II. Forty years later their reunions started and the benefits to them were priceless. I have kept in touch with the surviving members of my dad's unit and they still are trying to find buddies who never got the word about the reunions.

Hope this helps Skeeter McRight's friends.

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.

Comments: I am looking for additional information on my father, Bill J. Stewart and his service in Korea . He served in Korea was wounded twice one minor one fairly severe. I beleive he was with the First Marine Division and was at Inchon, Pusan, and the Chosin Resevoir. He passed away in 1992. I should have listened closer. Any info appreciated. The names I remember are MT Dowd, Roady

Comments: My father always gave thanks for a US Marine LT who saved his hands. He was frozen solid as his MO was demolition.

A "Liverpool hotfoot" was what he called it. His name is William Charles Currier. A man who is haunted by what he has seen and done.

Hagaru, Koti Ri and Chosin. He was there. Prior to that, Port en Besin, Malaya.

I wish I knew more.
