Comments: I'm looking for very detailed information about the Inchon landing of 15 sept. 1950. I need it for my history project at school. I'll need info about the preparation, the landing itself, the following days, the mood among the soldiers, tactics, your mission etc. I'll be very thankfull to the person(s) who wishes to tell me about those days. Other stories will also be very welcome because I'm always interested in the experiences you guys had and because I'll be joining the Dutch marines myself in the near future. I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours,

Comments: Any one who served in B co 2-5 under Capt Richard Bland in regards to my father;Frank W Dolly who was wia 21 Sept 1950 while crossing the wreckage of Kalchon River bridge. My father
passed away 19 April 2004. He talked about the war only after dementia had set in and he was jumping back and forth from the past and present.
Never complaining and never talking about those days in Sept 1950 I am curious if there were any
of the Marines still around. My father received wounds to his stomach and had his hip and leg shattered. Baker co took heavy casualties that day but I'm hoping somebody is still around to tell the story that my dad couldn't finish. Respectfully, Frank W Dolly Jr

What I know is, he had died during the war from some sort of illness (disease) that was going through his unit. I do have a few pictures of him with his unit (he appeared to enjoy smoking his pipe). I know before he had enlisted in the "corp" he loved to play the saxophone.

Again, I would like the opportunity to know more about him, so that I maybe able to share it with my children some day. I too served in the military, and would be very interested in finding out about his unit, shipmates, etc.

Thank you.

Followed by the attacks into the Punchbowl, Hill 812, (Lukes Castle) the "first ever" heliocopter lift on #882, and 2nd Korean winter. The unending 6x6 ride shift to the West Coast and for me in Aril of '52, I was outtathere! Hope I have rung some bells? Hope to hear from anyone. My good friend Clifford D. Colby who went to Easy Co. when we got off the ship has told me about some great re-unions in E/2/5 and I am kinda envious we don't seem to have a D/2/5 reunion. Colby and I stayed pretty close after Korea, and spent two yrs at Mare Island, CA together. Both of us stayed in for career Marines. Have alson been in contact with Jack Kindig, (Silver Star) my old sqd ldr, and On my second tour in Vietnam, as Captain, I had the profound privilege of becoming the Co Cdr of Co. D., 5th Marines. The structural changes from three company battalions to four moved Co. D into the 1st Bn, but what the hell, Co. D is still Dog Company to me.

Comments: Hello,
My name is Ira Martin. I've recently began the task of documenting my Grandfather, Donald Martin "Marty"s involvement in Korea. He arrived in Korea April 1951' He was promoted to sergeant upon arrival and commanded the 1st division 11th regiment 1st Battalion Baker Battery (Gun #4?) and served till the truce talks stalemate July 1952'. Its recently come to my attention He may have fired in support of E-2-5 and or G-3-5. He recieved 6 medals altogether not/inc the new unissued Rok medal. He has yet to receive it.
He is interested in any serious contacts from baker battery and any forward observers he might have encountered. He's sad the names are gone from memory; Even then, most were nicknames never to be used again off the Peninsula.
I've begun documenting his divisions movements during his service with what limited resources I can get. Any Information or Resources would be greatly appreciated and reciprocal if wanted. I've got a couple maps off the web and some random references to the Marines 11th Artillery in some actual diary like info and military docs. My Grandfather has some amazing stories and even more I'd like Help to unlock. My recent interest has already begun to get things going.
If interested or know of my Grandfather please contact me imartin@nycap.rr.com for additional contact info. Any Information will be extremely appreciated. I look forward to a serious response.
Sincerely,
Ira L Martin
