Comments: My Dad is Donald Dale King. At 18 he went to Korea with the 1st Battalion- 7th Marine Regiment. He was in an antitank assault Company. He made it out from the Reservior to be wounded about 15 miles south of Chosin. He is still alive at 84 now. I am very proud of him and the courage they all had.

Comments: I am writing a book entitled Our Roy, which is about my uncle, line Sgt. Roy M.Burns (deceased) who was a member of the 7th Marines, Anti-tank Company during the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir. He was twice wounded in or near Haga-Ru. Roy was a veteran of WWII (Peleliu) and was activated with a Marine Reserve unit in Nashville, TN. Here is what I have learned about his unit so far:He was with the Anti-Tank Company of the 7th Marines. He was a Marine during WWII as well. He shipped out of St. Diego.

Later he was KIA at COP Berlin on July 19, 1953. Please, if you
remember or were in unit contact me. I would really like to talk with
you

Thanks,

Chris

Comments: Let me add a few notes to the history of the Company. I arrived with the 11th draft in the summer of 1951 after our company was pulled from the new 3d Brigade in Pendelton. My job was radio operator (zero training). We had several radio operators (who also doubled as linemen). The names I recall were Charlie Butler, a midwestern farmer who could do just about anything, Kaufmann, Sice, Lenny (?), Merle (?) along with Brown and Truxal. The latter two were best know for their proclivities at getting busted. Sice is an interesting guy, Navaho I believe. A well educated Silver Star recipient.
The regimental call sign was WINE. We were WINE MESS and there was WINE BOTTLE, WINE CELLAR and so forth. Very secret stuff. If you really had to send something encrypted, the CO had a one-time pad that could be used, but I don't recall ever needing it.
Our CO was 1st Lt. William Dyroff from Buffalo, the ExO was always called Mr. Bob and the 75's were led by a second lieutenant whose father was editor of the old Colliers magazine. I can't remember his name but his aloofness stuck with me. The only thing that sticks in my mind about the Gunny was his thirst.
We had a cook named Putt (I have his picture in front of Putt's Diner)who almost blew up the whole camp making donuts once while we were in reserve.
We also had a pipe smoking corpsman (named Doc of course) who soothed my banged up arm with a small bottle of brandy.
One unforgettable character I met early on was named Jessie Deeson from Oklahoma. He told me never to use his name. I was to always call him "hog eyes". If we begged he'd play the Spanish Fandango on his guitar.
I have pictures showing the gunners sighting the 75's in some God-forsaken valley and a few shots of the tanks up on those incredible east coast mountains in the winter.
The many Koreans who showed their appreciation at the dedication of the Korean War Memorial changed my thinking about whether or not we really made a difference.

He was a tanker. It assumed that he was a member of the 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Division, although there is a possibility that he was a member of the 3rd Marine Division.
Please if there is any Marine Corp who travelled to Samoa in the South Pacific in the 1940s I am so desperate to find out any information. Please contact me at this email address.
I will appreciate any information.
