Comments: My great uncle, Peter M. Nassetta, was a Marine who fought at Horseshoe Ridge as part of Company C, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, 1st Marine Division. He was killed in action on April 24, 1951 and was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his actions during the defense. His family would love to hear from anyone who knew him or was more generally part of the operation as our knowledge of the situation he was involved in is very limited. Thank you. Ben

Comments: To whom this goes out to:

Hi. My father fought in Korea. He is gone now and died from his own gun at the age of 52 after dealing with PTSD. In 1984 PTSD wasn't even a consideration. He was a good man and was troubled very much. After losing a son(my brother) to a car accident, his mother to pneumonia, he seemed to struggle with guilt.

I was 18 when he killed himself and never got an explanation why. I had played football in college that yr., and was trying to transfer to a bigger college until one day when he told me he suffered from depression and would have to go to the hospital in Roseburg oregon to get help. A few months later, he checked himself out of the hospital and my aunt and uncle brought him home even though the hospital knew he was suicidal. The next morning, he shot himself in a local park.

When I was younger, my father drank a lot, and got into fights at bars. Sometimes he would fight multiple people. He was strong, mean, and when he snapped he got this dark look in his eyes. I will never understand why or how he became so angry. But I know he was a boxer in his past and he never took shit from anyone and had a reputation around the valley as a brawler.
He got up early in the morning and worked at 5:00am. He was a teamster and beat up scabs when they would go on strike in different places. He was a bad drinker and seamed to lose control every time he drank.

He did a lot of nice things for people too. He worked hard and took care of my grandmother and seemed to always help others when he could. He was a good man. I wish I knew more about him and why he was so angry. I was told many stories over the yrs., but until recently, I wasn't too knowledgable about his time in Korea. He told me he was a cook and that he didn't see much action. But after my mother died, I found a lot of pictures showing how close they were to the North koreans across a river from them. I have a good picture of his battalion and I am sure theres got to be some guys still alive in that big group.

The reason I'm writing this is to find out some truth. I had a talk with my cousin who is 10 yrs. older then me. He told me that when he was a young boy, my father had come back to Astoria Oregon from korea and that his mom(my dads sister), had to go get him after he had tried to kill himself. Apparently he was screwed up from the fighting and was depressed. Somehow, they had a conversation during his time at my aunts and he told him about what he did and saw. He talked about pictures that he had that showed him in the middle of battle. Apparently, he mentioned many crazy things and my cousin is not the type of guy to lie. I just wanted to know if there was anyone that knew him. I just want to talk to one person that may have known my father, FLOYD WAYNE SOUTH. They can't find those pictures and apparently they weren't so nice. I don't care about the pictures, I just wanna talk to someone who experienced what he did. I want to know where you guys were, and if you knew him. I feel guilty that I didn't know more and that I wasn't able to help him even though I was a kid.

My mom, bless her heart, stood by him the whole time. My brothers are both dead now and I miss everyone dearly. I just want to know more. I don't care if its good or bad, I just want to know where you guys were, what it was like, and if you might have known him. I found this website randomly, and I will look around.

Thank you for your service, your time, and your heart.

I know he was given a number of medals while in Korea and before his death. I believe he had something to do with communications and he liked to play poker. I was only 2 months old when he was killed, and I don't think he ever got the picture my mom sent him. I would love to hear from anyone who may have known him or known of him.

Comments: i just found this board of messages and was deeply saddened by the similaritites in these stories, , my dad was a MARINE in Korea and never talked about it. we to never heard his stories or the stories of his buddies, he had some photos and he showed us but nothing to graphic,
there is so much to learn from that generation and it is sad that they could not bring themselves to discus this time of their life with their families. we have all missed out on this history, these men and women of the Korean War are heros to us , thier families and the nation, i find in reading these messages that it must have been pure "HELL" for these veterans and i am sorry we did not get to hear more sooner.
this is in memory of my father, John H Bingham who died in 2000 (not really sure from what)
if you knew him and would like to send me an email that is great. i just really wanted to say thank you to all the service men and women from Korea (the forgotten war) and the families that they had. i will be for one looking for more information on this topic. thank you for letting me say my peace. i pray that all those who are in need of peace find it .

when it comes to war stories. He only spoke of base
life and bootcamp. Although some of these stories were
funny, they were all enjoyable. When my Dad became sick
in 1991 he started to tell me more about his actual
missions. I never saw my Dad shed a tear until that
day, it scared the hell out of me. I am proud to say
that he went to heaven a proud stedfast Marine. When he
realized that it hurt hum so to speak of his missions,
he clammed up and never would mention it again. there
are rumors in the family that he was a spotter. There
are others that he was some sort of special missions
Marine. I know that he saw combat, he was awarded at
least 2 purple hearts, and had scars on his back from
napom(sp?). My Dad left the Marines a SGT 1sr Class. I

My dad William (Bill) Buhle was with the 1st Marine Division (Reinforced)1st Battalion, A Co., Wonsan to Bunker Hill 1950 to 1953.

His memory is very fuzzy. I am hoping to find someone that remembers him. He started out infantry, but because they had so many casualities, he got bumped up to a leader of sorts...SSgt, I believe.

I am looking for all the info I can get ,to document his footsteps really, and especially a buddy roster to give him, maybe some reunion news .
thanks and be sure to thank your soldier for me, I appreciate their sacrifices.
Kindest Regards,
Judy Brownlow

Comments: My father Fred Penney was in Mortars and then later a scout. I know he was in Able Company, 1st Bat., 1st Marine Reg. If anyone has picures of Able company or the Mortars unit I would love to see them to see if I can pic out my father. We only have one picture of him from the war. What ever pictures you can e-mail would be great so I can see if my dad is in it?

Comments: Bobby Burton was a teenager who lived in my neighborhood when I
was a child. He was a wonderful person. He worked in his parents
neighborhood grocery store throughout high school ... and was like a
big brother to every one of us. In those days, it was not uncommon for
our mothers to send us to "Burton's little store" just before lunch or
supper to get "six thin slices of Blue Bell bologna... or a loaf of bread
..., etc" and Bobby was always there with a grin from ear to ear ... and if
he was feeling particularly silly, he'd "threaten" us young shopper /
errand runners with " I'm gonna come out from behind this counter and
grab you up and cut your ears off..." and we squeal and run around the
bread rack... and then if his Mom wasn't around, he'd reach in the ice
cream cooler and sneak a popsicle or an ice cream bar to us ... and
shoo us out the door. I cried when I learned he had been killed. All of
the kids did. I'm 65 years old and I still can't mention Bobby's name
without weeping. I'm writing a book about growing up in this little,
non-descript mid-western town. One of the chapters will be devoted
to Bobby Burton. I acquired the information in the Keyword box from
WILLIAM L. BEIGEL 4824 NEWTON STREET TORRANCE, CA 90505. I
wonder how I might be able to use the information I have to learn
more about Sgt. Burton's life in the Marines as well as his death?
Thanks,
Dr. Russ Fine

Comments: Dad passed away in 2006 of an aortic anurism. He was always proud of being a Combat United States Marine, and proud of me for carrying on the tradition. He only told me stories of his Korean experiences after I had become a Marine. I never knew anyone who cried from his soul as he did when he held me after returning from Iraq. Dad was my hero, and best friend. He never forgave the Army for running a tank over a hill and saying it was clear, and then his buddy, Bratback was shot back into my dads arms. Anyone with information on his time in country, or as a Marine, please contact me.
