Accidentally stumbled across the 1970 AFKN newsletters - just a tad before my duty but the memories came flooding in - strange - they were all good!

My best wishes for everyone who was privileged to be part of the AFKN experience.

UNIT ASSIGNED: 1/23rd Infantry
TIME SERVED: 1966-1970


I just found this site via another Imjin Scout who reached out to me for some memory jogging. Thanks to Don Lopez for this site. I arrived in Korea straight out of OCS (55th Company, Ft. Benning) and straight into the Blue House incident. Being a brand new platoon leader, I knew we were in trouble when we were issued grenades, live ammo, and no range officer! With that icy cold indoctrination I soon learned that Korea was not "the best kept secret in the Army" as I had been told by some Eighth Army REMFs. During that incident one of my OCS classmates in the unit to our left flank was shot. Reality set in quickly. I remember looking at the bright red blood residue where he had been shot days later as the cold winter preserved it like it was fresh.

As were all units in Korea, we were not up to TOE strength and had to make do with what we had. Hats off to the NCOs who could work minor miracles with little or nothing. My senior NCO, an SFC, had to be medivaced out because of a serious non combat knee injury while we were being deployed to the frozen paddi fields. His replacement just graduated from NCOCS and had less experience than me! But he stepped up and we managed through the incident.

Okay, some names I remember: BN CO LTC Romano, Bravo CO CPT Randall, HHC CO (and later CPT Randall's replacement) CPT Taylor, Platoon Leader 2LT Dennis Lauer, Platoon Leader, 2LT Robert Peck, XO 1LT Lonnie Wright, Platoon SGT, SFC Coleman, Charlie CO CPT Early.

Loads of stories of course, but good to touch base.

UNIT ASSIGNED: 102nd MI
TIME SERVED: 1986-1990


B Co. 102 MI (GSR) from Jan 85 to Mar 86. I was in 1st Platoon and spent my time on Radar Site #6. I was up there with Erik Backe, Scott Stevens, Jesse Gonzales, Danny Cole, SSG Calbert, Julius White, Vernon Pagson, Burns, Nabors, Martinelli, Pounds, Dooley all the damn KATUSA's. Apologies to anyone I forgot.

It was my first duty station I remember it vividly, going to the mobile sites and all that. Two weeks after I got to Site #6 there was a guy TDY from Hawaii that got killed one day before he was supposed to leave (wish I could remember his name). I remember two incidents where a North Korean HIND-D helicopter and a tank had crossed the MDL. A UN contingent had to come up investigate.

When I shipped home from Germany, the army lost some of my hold baggage. My Imjin Scout badge (the shield one that was worn on Class A's) was in it. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement?

Looking forward to hearing from anyone that was over there when I was.

Haven't been on the site in a long time. I was one of the ACTA graduates in mid-1967. Stationed in HHC of 2nd Engineer Battalion at Camp Peterson. Back then it was a real honor to be recommended by your CO to attend ACTA. Training was probably as tough as Rangers was back then. Hated it when going through it but was a great experience when I look back. I was there with a really great group of guys!

My name is Ron Meraz. I am a retired Army 1SG/E-8 that served two tours in Korea. July 1970 - October 1971. During this first tour I was assigned to the Wire Section of the Communication Platoon of HHc 1st Bde, 2nd Inf Div. We were camped at RC-5 / BLV and did daily message center runs to camps North of the Imjin River. In addition the Wire Section was reponsible for maintaining the wire lines to rotating Bn North of the Imjin. I could go on but am courious to know if anyone remembers a MSG Comstock, SSG Walter Blackley, SP5 Dan York, SP4 Lyman Ellis, SGT Max Roach or even the Bde Commander, Col Yerks.
Also if anyone was present when the 1st Bde moved from BLV to Camp Casey and Hovey as the 7th Divisions colors departed Korea in Mid to late 1971.

When I arrived in country and was sent to Camp Walley as I entered the camp in the back of a duece and a half I noticed the bare slab of concrete that used to be a barracks. My condolences to ravlito46. I read that you were injured in the explosion. Hope you are doing fine now. Also read a short article on this web site fom Don Lopez. You mentioned OP O'Malley. I was with James P. O'Malley on patrol in the DMZ when he was killed. Was probably ten feet from him when it happened. Our patrol had our picture taken in front of the new OP when it was dedicated. I know I've got pictures around the house somewhere. Been digging through boxes for weeks now. I WILL FIND THEM. Other than your mention of the OP I can't find anything on the internet about OP O'Malley. I attended ACTA in September of 1968 graduating on Sept. 28, 1968.

My platoon got to serve a tour on the DMZ and almost all of the members earned the Imjin Scout Award. If my memory is correct, a person at that time could were the patch but I am not sure. I do know that it was not authorized for wear after 1988 after I got back to the states.

I tried looking for similar references for the 9th Infantry Regiment but found none, our combat badge was the Red/Blk Hour Glass w/ bayonet through it. I served on the DMZ in 1969. The 4 soldiers that were ambushed in 1969 replaced our unit. I ran across the same road where they were killed many times, when I was on stake-out patrol. I recall being scared when I blew my claymore mine thinking it was being turned on me and blasted with my M79 w/ canister rounds in bitch black. That experience changed me. My DD214 misrepresents. I Native American and I am proud to have served in the little Viet Nam.

DMZ duty is not generally considered combat duty after 1973. Imjin Scout patches can be found on Ebay. They can be expensive and I would be careful to make sure they are the real thing.

Assigned to JSA, was escort and bodyguard for Swiss General of the Neutral Nations. Also did guard duty. Buddy from Yonkers NY was with me one day at the bridge of no return. He had brough some stiff wire, some twine and a sign. He went out and stepped off an area where Charlie could see him and put the wire stakes in wrapped the twine around it and planted the sign in the middle. Charlie ran back into the guard post and in a little while a convoy of brass came down from the North and were all looking at the sign with binoculars. Imagine their surprise when they read written in spanish "Please do not step on the ants." I had a great time there and worked with some great guys.

We use to yell at the other BNs at Warrior Base calling them "Summer Help" when they drove down the MSR, lol. Hardest year of my life. I was in Third Platoon with Black, Baker, Wambauch, Mercer, and a bunch of other guys. On Patrol I was the ADM. I remember having to chip the ice out of the barrels of our M16s coming off the DMZ after sitting all nigh in ambush, so we could rod the barrels and clear the weapons. Anyone remember wearing the snow whites? We used the old M16A2s, with the full auto option. Mine was mounted with an ANPVS4. Big old bulky thing.

I was in the weapon platoon of the 7th divison 3/32 in 68/69. Was sent
to Imjin scout school in the winter of 68 just before we were to be
assigned to the DMZ. I must be getting old because I can't remember the camp I was stationed at. I do remember we were next the the Imjin
school. I went to sniper school in the 2nd divison next to munsan or
some like to call it (turkey village).
The main reason for asking the question is because of agent orange sprayed in the area south of the DMZ. The VA is creating problems
in that area.

UNIT ASSIGNED: 1/38th Infantry
TIME SERVED: 1966-1970


I made an error earlier in mention my Korea camp assignments. I have now seen accurate maps and now know that I was based at Camp Wentzel most of the time while working the Zone in 1967-68, however one rotation occurred for a couple of months and we rotated to Camp custer, just a short distance to Camp Beard where RC#1 was located. Then after Pueblo was taken we rotated back up to Camp Wentzel. This was the 1/38th Inf., 3rd Brigade, 2ID. I have forgotten an awful lot about location over the past 44 years, but it is starting to come back to me. I was at RC#3 near ACTA watching a movie when someone in my unit took my jeep to GP Barbara with four others and was blown up by NKA infiltrators. Not RC#4 as stated earlier. I had just gotten off of a 7 day stay on the GP and replacements did not show up and our unit had to go back up. I believe it was either the 4/7, or the 2/72 that screwed us by not showing up as scheduled. They lucked out, our guys died. I was in more than my share of fire fights in the Zone and I am glad to be alive. Then I had to go back out and walk up the mountain in the flood wash a vertical climb and remand GP Barbara with my full gear and pack on. It is a long way up that hill. So that was a two week straight stretch for me. Now I want my CIB and my combat pay which all of us who served prior to April 1, 1968 were screwed out of by the DOD. I spent a day driving and taling with **** General Bonesteel commander of USARPAC at the time, from the helipad near camp Young to JSA, and I recall that he was a really descent human being. I was a SP4 at the time. Had a **star and a Full Bird in the jump seat and they did not get to talk at all. I spent some time in 2nd half of tour driving for Co. Commander Capt. Dicky of B. Co. who picked me up at Kempo when I arrived in country and dropped me off at HQ Co. for my 1st assignment, and after he rotated home I drove for Bn. Sgt. Mjr. Bolin until he rotated home. Then I rotated home and out. What a tumultuous 13 month tour of duty that was.

I served 1/38th, 3rd Brigade, 2ID, I believe it was Camp Howze, between 1/23 on the East at Chang Parie Bridge, and 3/23 on the West at Freedom Bridge. We were just east of 3rd Brigade HQ and RC4, on both sides of the road running between the other units, on North side of river and south of Panmunjon. I do not see my unit on the Bold Unit list you have on this site. Was there 1967-1968. Thanks.

23July12
Dear Sir:
I served with B Btry, 1st 15th Field Artillery. Our home was Camp Stanley and I arrived in country 26Aug71. I left 1Oct72. Camp Stanley was the 2ID Artillery HQ then. We had two artillery battalions there, the 1st 15th and the 5/38th.
Every 45 days we would make our pilgrimage up north through Uijungbo Moonson, Camp Pelham, Songeri,went through the Chinese tunnel and finally passing Camp Grieves, that was the last american camp before entering the DMZ. We crossed Freedom Bridge and went Northeast about 2.5 miles. There was a fixed artillery firebase there called 4poppa1. We set up our 6 towed 105mm howitzers and would occupy that firebase for 7-10 days. There were perimeter guardposts set up that were manned every day and night during our stay. I made that trip five times during my tour. Totaling over 40 days occupation in the DMZ. There was always the chance of attack and many infiltrators were cought and killed around Freedom Bridge trying to get to the south.
When I left country I wore the Im Jin Scout Badge on my dress uniform. I did'nt recieve orders but I was told that if you had 6 months combat pay you were elligable! I had over 40 credit points in the DMZ. I am proud of all that we accomplished as soldiers and as a country in South Korea during my tour. Served with fine young men. I turned 20 in basic training and 21 in Korea. Did a lot of growing up then! Saw some really strange sfuff!
I recently applied to the US Army for recognition of the Korea Defense Service Medal, Im Jin Scout Certificate and the CIB. I have read the guidelines and I know I am elligible! I wonder what the Army thinks? Remember, Korea is still at war with the North! There has been no change in relations since the armistice was signed in 1953. In doing some research I found that General Mark Clark headed a delegation that signed the armistice at Camp Pelham! B Btry 1st 15th FA occupied Camp Pelham for one week during summer 1972 while the 2nd 17th FA was across the river at 4poppa1. We always fired our 105mm guns south to an impact area at Santa Barbara Island. That was a large camp following the Korean war. We stopped for a night once. It was all torn down and all was left were small concrete slabs where the buildings once stood!
If anyone has any information on applying to the Army for recognition of the afore mentioned awards I would appreciate an email. I condider it an honor to briefly tell a small part of my story on your webpage. Thank you for developing the website! It was a long time ago when we served! I am 61 now and reminisce often of that special time, that time in the land of the morning calm! My parents both served in WW11. I had a strong sense of obligation to do my duty. I would have been drafted but I volunteered for the draft in 1971. Take care and feel free to contact me anytime! Your all second to none!

Sincerely'
former Sp4 Gregory P. Plutshack

I was also a "graduate" of Tigerland with an 11C MOS and went to 'Nam, but I was lucky like you. Although assigned to the 101st Airborne Division in Bien Hoa I became a clerk in their Administration Co. I, too, feel the guilt of cheating out on the others who did a real tour or paid the ultimate price.

I created a Facebook page for Tigerland so all those who were there in the day have a place to share their experiences. (See attached URL)

Thank you for your Tigerland pages and your tribute to your buddy who died in 'Nam. I have my own Brothers also that I will never forget.

I sure wish more vets would check out these web sites such as this one and relive their time, really history, with the rest of us. The day will come and none of us old guys, I'm 67 and retired from the army 1 Jan. 87 after joining 16 July 62. I did 3 tours in Korea, 1 in Alaska, 2 in Germany, 2 at Knox, and 3 at Riley and to this day I wish I had someone around here that I could talk over the old days with, but none around. I have written many stories on various web sites about some of my experiences especially Korea, for no one in the states, namely civilians don't have any clue of what we went through in our tours over there through out the years. So, if you know a vet that did time in Korea, get them to post something, and our history and our time there won't go to waste. Vic Pitts, 1SG, U.S.A. RET. TANKER

Under "Firefights: Scenes from an unfinished war by Major Bolger", the listing for the August 10th 1967 incident is incorrect. The unit involved in the firefight/ambush was not a construction team from the 13th Engineers. It was B Co. 2/31st infantry. We were on an assignment to assist engineers in clearing forest areas for the new barrier and fence line. Some note should be made to correct this if it can not be corrected through Major Bolger. If you have contact info for him please advise and I will contact him myself. In the meantime a footnote could be made. If you need corroborating statements I am in contact with several former members of B Co. who were present that day. I also have a purple heart which clearly identifies the unit. Also, the incident was written up in the StarsStrips as well as the Indianhead.

My name is SSG Ervin Carpenter, retired. I was with A company 3/23 2nd ID at Camp Greaves, the first camp on the right as you crossed north on Freedom Bridge. Our LT. was Ribaro and our patrol was known as Ribaro's Rats. 24 on 24 off. I was known as the Duck because I was ready to swim the Im Jim should the North Jump! Our guard post, GP, was GP Jane. I spent most of my time on GP Jane and patrolling the DMZ. I still have my Im Jim Scout patch and certificate. I believe we got that by attending ACTA at the DMZ training site. I was on GP Jane the day the North Koreans started a huge rice paddy fire so we could not take pictures of a huge tunnel they were digging. I understand that years later they found the exit to the tunnel in the south. HQ thought we were nuts to think they would even think of digging a tunnel to the south. I still have the pictures I took of the dig.
All my best, Erv Carpenter - Duck

Hi, to all the veterans who served together. My father was SSGT. Terry Arcemont who served in 1-9th Infantry and was killed in action on 10/6/67 in a firefight on the Injim river. I was only 7 at the time and have very few memories of my father. He did serve in Vietnam before Korea also. I was hoping to see if I could find anyone who knew him or served with him, so I could hear the stories of my father, from their perspective. My name is Kepha Arcemont and I am his 1st born son. Him and my mother married too young and upon his death, he was survived by me, His Korean wife Mona, and my half--brother/sister, Terry and Charlotte. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

I happened to be in the front line of the charge up to the checkpoint when the guards exited with the AKs. We were chastised for not having taken a picture of the armed guards.

Heads up to all Korea vets-- If you are missing any part of your personnel files you need to contact the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Military Personnel. 9,000 personnel files were just found in a warehouse somewhere in the Washington DC area and what I am hearing is that they are Korea records. I have also been told that there are records stored all over the Greater DC area that DoA does not know what's where. If you call congress use 1-888-727-4894 number so it doesn't cost you anything. Your congressman's DC office should also know about this records find.

I served in Korea from Feb.5 1970--May 8 1971.My unit was co.B23BN2NDInfDiv.We were known as the "DMZ POLICE" I attended ACTA north of the Imjin River in 1970 and trained in the mountains in the winter months.I cannot remember how long the school lasted but I was 19 yrs old and gun ho'as hell so I volunteered.I graduated 10th out of a class of 100 men with a 93 percent average.The competition was fierce.We graduated in the early spring around the last of April.We were all awarded the "DMZ SCOUT BADGE OF HONOR".At that time I was in a line co.3rd23rd about a mile south of the Imjim River and bridge near a small village called "UNE CHANIE". Around August I was shipped out north across the Imjin River to "Camp Greves" where I stayed for the remainder of my tour.We patroled the "BARRIER FENCE" and worked "GP jane and GP marshall"where we would spend 30 days on each "GP" at a time rotating camps approx.every three months.When all of the other Batallions were pulled out to leave the "Z" to the "ROCKS" we were left up on the "Z" with the "ROCKS" ARMY and MARINES to insure an AMERICAN presents in an area we called the "BOWLING ALLEY".In this area of the barrier there were no trees.One night "GP Jane"was hit by "CHARLIE'hard and we lost a lot of guys it was burned to the ground by "QUAD FIFTY" fire.After that happened all the "GP'S in our sector were built under ground.The granite rock was to hard for dynamite so nitro was used.After I derosed and came home I had nightmares for a long time and I wanted to go back because I had gotten use I guess to being a bit uncivilized due to the hardship of my tour.I've finally decided to file for compensation.Hopefully I can get some help.If you know of someone that can aid me in my quest,please email me and let a fellow "IMJIM SCOUT"/DMZ POLICE" know.PEACE---brotherlaid

I also remember moving between Camp Graves in the north and Camp Lawton in the south. I departed from Camp Lawton in 1970 and headed home. I left many friends behind.

Hope to hear from anyone who was there in the month of Aug. 1968. I was assigned to the 7th Bn. 17th Arty (105mm towed)2nd Inf. Div. Hope to hear from someone. Thank You.

I just went through the process of getting the KDSM. I saw the phrase "Keep Up The Fire!" We used to say that when we saluted at Camp Hovey, Korea in 1977 and 1978. I always thought that the 1/9th Infantry was the hardest assignment I have ever had physically in the military, and I retired a Warrant Officer after Desert Storm. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to all the folks who worked hard to get the KDSM. Keep Up The Fire and Manchu! VR Dan Hurd, USA, CW2 (Retired)

My name is Robirt E Duncan. I worked in the orderly room at HHC 2nd/38th Bue Lancer Valley. I worked as Training NCO for headquarters/headquaters Company.

I arrived,as a Spc 5, 18th of Mar,1968. JJ Sanger was the Co of HHC when I got there.
Joe Collucci was Co Clerk, John Brideford was Lt Sanger's Driver. Robert Smallwood and Charles Hor worked as the armorers. James Holmes was the 1st Sgt driver. Robert Hurst was in the supply room.

I remember being really scared for the first time in my young, at that time, life. I had never been away from home and, somtimes, it was a terrifiying experience. In some ways, it was interesting to see another part of the world at such a young age, I was ninteen, and that was truely an education. As I look back, I'm sure that having had the experience, has made all the difference in my life in many ways.

I remember when one of my friends in Recon got killed on a wood cutting detail. It was sad and scary. Lt JJ Sanger went to a line Co and Lt Keck took his place. After a year of rotating back and forth across the Imgin, Falling out in the middle of the night for alerts, pulling guard duty on that mountain outpost, I left one year to the day, in Mar, of 69. I would love to hear from any of the guys I mentioned or, any of those that were there from 68 to 69 in HHC 2nd/38th.

TIME SERVED: 1961-1965


Every web site I find on the net, I like to read through them. Over the past 15 years doing this, I have not found any mention of my unit that was moved from the 7th ID to the 1ST CAV Division in May or June of 1963. My company, A co, had been part of 2nd Battalion 40th Armor at Camp (Fort ) Beavers just north of Camp Casey. My company was moved lock stock and barrel literally to the 1St CAV north of the IM JIM river near the old rec center. We then became the Aco, 2nd Battalion 15th Armor and our HQs was south in the village of YON GU GOL. I have seen and heard a lot about the infantry units on the DMZ and the CAV units also, but as I said not one word about our company. In July 1963 when the NKs crossed over and ambushed the jeep carrying the relief crew for the OP, killing the 2 in the front and wounding the 3rd in the back, he was Pfc, Foster and young black soldier. My company was broken down by platoons to work with different units north of the river and that is what happened. The crews didn't return to our area until things had cooled down and (normal) operations continued. I left there in January 1964, but I returned to Korea for 2 more tours. In July 1973 I was assigned to C Troop 4/7th Cav at the old Camp Rice which was renamed by our CSM and Sqdn, Co. to be Camp Garry Owen. I returned in July 1976 but assigned to C co. 1/72nd Armor in Dragon Valley at Camp Casey, and 2 or 3 weeks later is when the tree incident took place and my company was given the order to move north of the river and to continue on order to KAE SONG if it was decided we were going to war. That was later known as "Operation Paul Bunyon", we were ready to fight for we believed that the north had done wrong too many times and got away with it, and the only thing that we were concerned about was, whos' side if any that China would be on. I retired form the army 1 Jan. 1987, my first assignment found me on the DMZ of Korea and my final assignment found me on the East German border with the 11th ACR as 1SG of the tank company in our squadron. Thanks for taking the time for reading my post, if anyone did. I'm just an old soldier that enjoys talking about the past and the good ole days. 1SG Vic Pitts, Kings Mountain, N.C.

I served from 8/67 to 9/68 in HHC 1/23INF Battalion, as the battalion Commo chief sergeant, both North and South of the Imjin River. I served with LTC. Dewitt Cook (Papa Bear) at Camp Young, then after we rotated South to Blue Lancer Valley, LTC. Frank Romano Jr. took command of the 1/23rd Infantry 2ID, during 1969 (I Think) at Blue Lancer Valley Korea. I was there when the 31 North Korean slipped through the DMZ, heading to Seoul to assassinate the President of South Korea. After that felled attempt, the North Koreans were killed or wounded by South Korean troops and soldiers from the 2ID. I was there when they sprayed some (32,000) gallons of Agent Orange in the DMZ. I was exposed to Agent Orange there in Korea, and now I have type II diabetes, I do have a combined rating of 100 percent disability from VA.
I am trying to communicate with any one from the DMZ area and that era, and any of my pass buddies and friends. (And as brother, Peter) said so well, "We will always be 20, young and carefree. Drinkin'n smokin, going for the girls, and doing our jobs! People then and even now don’t know about those days when so many of us rotated in and rotated out, being exposed to Agent Orange, shot at. We did receive hostile fire pay for a reason, we did serve well, then we went home and resumed our lives. But a part of us will always be back there looking for a way home.
I hope that this message will touch someone from my past and I can for a moment or two, and be 21 again. Things I remember, Camp Young, Blue Lancer Valley, Chanpr-r, Nullo-ri, Libby Bridge, OP Dort, (The last Chance), and the good ole DMZ

WOW! I've just found your website while searching out info on Korean vets and Agent Orange. I served there from 12/68 thru 12/69, with C Co. 2/72 at Camp Beard in Yon-Gi-Gol. I went thru the Imjin Scout training and we got the nickle tour of the DMZ while there, replete with the cautions about being careful where we went, where we stepped and what/who we saw. It certainly did make my heart beat a bit faster! C Co, 2/72 served watches on the south side of the Imjin, but we never crossed over, for which I was grateful. I and several of my fellow GI's did go see the truck that carried the guys that were ambushed, and I still have some pics of it in my collection to show, lest anyone doubt the dangers of service there.
Keep up the good work, I am going to finish my tour of your site, then bookmark it. God bless.

I served with Hq Hq Co. 1/9, 2ID from April 1967 through May 1968.
We moved north (from Middle Camp Custer) over Libby Bridge in November 1967 replacing the 1/23 Inf. Reg. while they moved south of the ImJin River. While there (Nov. 67 thru Apr. 68) we were at Camp Young.

I have read the (I guess official) list of 'incidents' and it seems as though much was apparently not recorded or reported. There was not a night that 'incidents' didn't occur while we were there. It was simple to hear the sounds in and around the ZONE. Need more info on 1st. of the 9th.

My name is José J. Meléndez (SP4)from Puerto Rico,I was station in Korea from Jan 1978 to December 1978. Upon arrival and processing of paperwork I was assigned to C Co 1/32d Inf 2d Inf Div. Within a few weeks of my arrival my company was sent to the DMZ with other companies from the 1/32nd Infantry Regiment. On February 11, 1978 my squad was sent out on a night and ambush patrol against North Korean Ranger Commando's as there were enemy patrols in the area. My squad leader, Sgt Joe Phillips had a problem reading the map, almost got us inside a mine field, and to top that off forgot the entrance codes to get us back to GP (Guard Post) 115, we were under arms fire, the Sgt had the squad low crawl to the other side of GP 115 where the gate was, hoping that we could make it without getting shot, hit by fragments of a Claymore or have a grenade dropped on us. We knew if we were spotted we had seconds to live. We finally got radio contact with the Command Center at 115 were told we were in eminent danger as PFC David Apperson was on the outer post just seconds from clicking the Clamores, throwing grenades and emptying his ammo belt on my squad. We were told that we had a lot of luck of not being killed that day. I had several other dangerous incidents within the DMZ In fact, I have had nightmares all these years remembering Feb 11, 1978 when I almost lost my life.

There are any Manchu soldier who wants to share photos with me of the DMZ.

I read you comments on Imjun Scout with great Interest. I finally found comrades who was in the Blue Lancer Valley at the same time I was! I didn’t spend much time there, maybe 2-3 times in my tour, since that was Regimental HQ.


I was a Platoon Ldr and later XO of C Company 2/9th Inf (M) Camp Corsen (SP). Most of my time was spent north of the Imjin River at what were tents and later prefabs outside JSA (Joint Security Area). I have over 200 missions in the “Zone.” I led the patrol on search and destroy missions against the 31 Agents who infiltrated south. My driver was a few yards to my right in very dense growth descending down a hill with on of the agents attempted to toss a grenade. As close as I was I couldn’t see due to growth. My driver and two others of my patrol fired on him. I made sure he was dead but was lying on a grenade. I had a long rope attached and we dragged him to make sure the pin hadn’t been pulled.

2ID C.O. General Izenour flew out, shook my hand and looked at the cache of stuff we found on him. A National Geographic’s team who was in country also came out to write about the DMZ I refused an interview.

I also led other patrols which found the largest cache ever found in country up to that time. Again, the General few out shook my hand. I had some other assignments such as Libby Bridge Commander. I get to blow the bridge if ordered which was pre- wired with explosives. No one cared how I was going to get back across the Imjin!

I also taught every combat BN in the Div “Quick Kill,” which was a method of firing without aiming, much like bird hunting. I mention these things to see if any you possibly remember me or those incidents I cited? I was a short haired guy with a black mustache!


Another assignment was leading a patrol boat up and down the river. That was pretty good duty!


I too was in a foxhole when the Pueblo was seized. It minus something degrees and nasty. Nothing like knowing you may be over-run by 1 million North Koreans and there is one Division back in the States as our backup!


Anyway, I had a very complete career in the reserves with my last 5 years being an IMA officer Assigned to the Army General Staff DCSOPS as the Deputy Chief of the Army AOC (War Room).


I was awarded a CIB for Korea but I know was shocked to learn last Friday night while exploring various sites that 32,000 gallons of Agent Orange were used in the DMZ. I am filing a VA Claim since I already have Multiple Sclerosis and constant night sweats for which I am treated by a civilian Doctor. I took the orange horse pill every Monday and one day in the Zone I got very sick with chills, sweats and high temperature. I was rushed to the 2nd Med. Where I was asked if I had been taking my pill? I answered in the affirmative. The Doctor showed me my blood sample under the microscope and said that there had been some changes to my blood chemistry.


I too am an Imjin Scout!


I mention all this as I seek to put in claims with the VA. I don’t even have a VA Card yet. Could take up to year the VA Rep told me. But he is trying to do an end run to bet it faster for me. Also, I want to write my Congressman to get any decorations I didn’t receive. I have the Expeditionary Ribbon for Korea and that is it. I wore the Indianhead my whole career on my right sleeve.


I don’t expect you to remember me but my records reflect my units and time rames. I am looking for someone to verify that those events took place, especially the killing of the North Korean by some unit of 2/9th, which was me. If I were to get some verification which the 2ID conveniently leaves out of its web site history, I could be awarded a bronze star to go with my CIB for that incident and the other collective incidents.


Let me know if there is anything I can do for you my brothers


Your Brother,

Jim Gruenebaum, LTC Retired

I was in B 2/9 from July 1969-August 1970. We were involved in hostile fire incidents during that time. I am interested in documenting them. As a rule, the people in charge did not report the incidents because of political reasons due to the Vietnam War. For example, a month or so before I got to Korea, PFC Murray and PFC Bliss and a KATUSA killed a North Korean colonel. However, despite the body and the weapon, even this incident is difficult to find in the records. I am especially interested in a firefight that occurred sometime around late June 1969.

Unit was moved to Camp Casey about the end of March 1976 and replaced by 2nd/9th I believe.Was at Camp Casey during the TREE Cutting Incident that killed to US Army Officers.I have photos of that Incident that I've kept to myself and never published on the internet. Maybe one of these days I'll get them out and do that! Also I never recieved the Imjin Scout award for my participation in Daylight Recon's and Night Ambush's that we set up. My squad did almost kill about 30 Korean's during a daylight recon.We weren't briefed that South Koreans from one of the (2) outpost's they manned would be running PT on the road that morning.The Plt Sgt made a quick radio call to find out the status of these Korean's and were advised not to engage that they were friendly. Could have started an international incident with just one pull of the trigger. Those South Korean soldiers don't know how close they came to being annilated!! Scout's Out!!

TIME SERVED: 1966-1970


My name is Robert J Johnson Jr and I served in the 2nd 23rd Infantry (M) Company A and was at Camp Lawton when I first arrived in April 1967 and when I left in July 1968 and in between we were at a camp or two North of Freedom Bridge. I remember shortly after arriving we did QRF out of the camp at RC#3. There is so much that I do not remember. I did take a lot of pictures which I will be glad to send copies to anyone who is interested. While up north in February of 1968 we worked out of GP Jane running patrols. I remember that on a cloudy night you could not see your hand 6 inches in front of your face.

Looking back I had a lot of friends that I have not seen or heard from since 1968. I did visit with our platoon SGT Clerf Adkins twice after
coming home - once in 1969 at his home in Ridgeway, SC and again in 1993 I believe - I have since lost contact with him.

We had temps. of 28 below zero and windy. There was not much protection in the fox holes. From there we went to the DMZ zone for two months. We also spent time in the field. Great site. Hope to find people I served with.

With my buddy Bill Rippengale, we were the survey team for the anti-infiltration barrier (minefields/fence/towers) placed in 1967. Thanks to a lot of close support from the infantry guys, APC crews, and our combat engineers on the mine detectors, we got the job done with a limited amount of casualties. Looking back, I recall what a professional operation we all carried out, and the good guy Bill and I worked for (Major Mac)- he trusted us to do the job were trained for.

We need to petetion D.O.D. or our congressman to give the scouts thier C.I.B., hazardious duty pay, and declare the DMZ a combat zone for Va purpose's.

Inside the DMZ was a different type of combat zone due to we couldnt have auto-weapons, fire support, air support, Mechanized support and if you got killed what could your country do without starting a war. It is a whole different type of warefare and deserves more acknowledgement for 1 patrol without support to risk it all and then your country cant back you up inside the DMZ

A nice trip down memory lane. Though many of the specifics escape me at the moment (though I will do some research on the when's and what's), I landed in S. Korea in May, 1968, to be welcomed by flack jacket wearing fellow Grunt who advised us as we deplaned that the base was under max. security as some insurgents had made their way south and were expected to attack the Blue House. So my seat mate from the flight, an administrative clerk, and I assessed our situation and took the only reasonable action possible, we repaired to the NCO club where we enjoyed what we thought could be our last adult beverages on this earth. The bad guy's were either rounded up or chased off so we continued through our processing. I was assigned to the 2/23d, at it's base south of the river. They were in training mode at that time, but it wasn't long before we rotated back up North. There are many stories, both fond recollections as well as those moments of terror that only a fellow Imjin Scout would identify with. There is so much that I would like to share and I am glad I discovered this site and look forward to reading more. At the time of my arrival in-country I was Cpl. E-4.

I always look forward to receiving my Christmas card from Brother Julio Martinez and I was not disappointed this year as I received a Christmas card with this picture of Julio from the winter of 1964-1965.



It is hard to believe that it has been 46 years since the picture was taken. It is a beautiful picture that is full of the spirit that Julio continues to share with us. This year there was an added treat - some of Julio's "REMEMBER KOREA" cards that help tell the story of the soldiers who gave there all at a time when Vietnam was raging and the Korean soldiers were often forgotten. Thank you Brother Julio for helping the world remember and understand our sacrafice.

KEEP UP THE FIRE!

I served with Co.A 2/23 inf. 1st platoon on the DMZ from march 68 to june 69. On 4/13/68 came close to getting killed by North Korean fire on GP Gladys when we went out to rescue a pinned down patrol. Also, attended ACTA, graduating 7th in my class, promoted to hard E-5 and given a 3 day pass. March 69, our patrol walked into an old minefield from the unmarked side. Thank God, got everybody out safely. During my tour our company lost 2 men killed. Also saw an engineer step on a mine in front of Tower#1 in 1968. Earned my Imjin Scout Patch in early 1968. Served with a great bunch of men from all parts of the U.S. Would like to hear from any of my fellow DMZ veterans. Best Regards, Mario Pacella from Buffalo N.Y.

I received the DMZ scout patch and also attended A.C.T.A. and received the Imjin scout patch also. I was there when North Korea sent the 31 man patrol down to assassinate the South Korean President. I had a friend that only had 5 days left in the Army and they sent him out with us on a blocking force to capture or kill the infiltraitors and he was killed by one of them. His name was sgt. martin

Man, what a trip down memory lane. I have forgotten all that fun. Everything from Nightmare Range to TDC. 1976 Camp Casey CSC 1-31st. with old Marathon Man as the CO. I think it was Sgt Driver was my Platoon Sarg. My favorite spot was the Bravo Club in the vill. We use to get the jump suits made that said the dates in the back of the jackets, remember those? What about the RCP cards, we use to get a few and sell them on the black market. My mom would send me care packages with real salt and pepper, that was a bargaining tool for sure. Mosquito nets were big bucks as well. I think my Yobo was only $10.00 a month. And of course the $1 field wh0*#$ in the foxhole…Radar sight #13 was fun as well. (Star light-star bright-what is Charlie doing tonight)
Thanks for the memories and the trip down memory lane.

My name is Peter Scriven. I was in C company 1/23 from May68 to June69. When I arrived i was posted to Camp Clinch, given a bunk, an m14 and sent out on my first patrol to "the zone." It was the first of many patrols into the DMZ. On my 21 st birthday, july 4th, while on patrol, one of the new guys was shot that night and we had to hold the position until he could be carried out to a choper just on the other side of the wire. We were not told much but I think he died enroute. Plenty of time was spent up in the guard towers looking into the zone as well as getting to spent a couple of days in the observation posts that were located as close to NK as possible. I remember the fire fights the guys at the next post down would have, the red tracers going out and the green ones coming in, I wanted to help out and fire up but the command was to let them do their own shooting. We had our own often enough. We rotated to Blue Lancer Valley and then back again to the zone for a bitter cold winter.
I made some great friends, sadly of which except for one, I have never seen again. I saw Lynn Blean, my closest friend a couple of times when I lived in LA but we lost touch.Our CO was Micheal Early, strict but fair. People I cared for was Napolitano who had a big 106 for a toy, Leo"the dog" Hayes, Don Eaton and others whos pictures I have in my scapbook and in my memory. They will always be 20, young and carefree. Drinkin 'n smokin, going for the girls, and doing our job.
People then and even now dont know bout those days when so many of us rotated in and rotated out, exposed to agent orange, shot at. We did receive hostile fire pay for a reason, given an scout patch. We did serve well, went home and resumed our lives. But a part of us will always be back there looking for a way home.
I hope after some 40 years that this message will touch someone from my past and I can for a moment or two be 21 again. Best to you brother, Peter

Hi,

My name is Phill Marshall, I live in England and I'm trying to get hold of the badges/insignia for a Lennon Theatre Show costume. Possibly also the jacket to fit them on on as famously worn by Lennon in a Madison Square Garden concert in 1972. It is a small independent production that will also be taken to schools since the beatles and in particular Lennon became part of the curriculum in music and history. I've found similar jackets but they seem to have 4 buttons from breast down instead of 5 as seen on Lennon's photographs and the color is slightly darker, although I understand that the one he wore had probably faded with washes.
Is it possible to buy such items? Would you be able to help me please?
Best regards
Phill

Hi!

Some of you might remember me as the person who wrote the article about the 25th Anniversary of the Axe Murder Incident.

Today, I published my first novel--a novel about the Korean War and the 2nd Infantry Division.

It is currently available as an Ebook later this month it will be available as a POD from Lulu.com

Thank you and thank you for your service.

UNIT ASSIGNED: 2/23rd Infantry
TIME SERVED: 1966-1970


I served with Co. A 2/23 Infantry 2nd Div. from March 68 to June 69. Earned my imjin scout patch on the DMZ. Almost got killed on Gp Gladys on 4/13/68 when the NK opened up and 5 rounds hit right in front of me. Only got minor injuries. Attended ACTA, graduated 7th in my class, promoted to hard Sgt. E-5,with only 11 months in the army and received the ATCA imjin scout patch. Also, saw Sgt James L. Anderson get killed by a booby trapped gernade on4/14/69. Saved a man's life from sun stroke in the summer of 68. Late nov. 68 saw an enginener step on one of our mines and get his foot blown off. Saw a Katusa get killed by one of our own men from a distance. Spring 69, my point man lead us into an old mine field and with what I learned at ACTA, I was able to get everybody out safely. No I was not in Viet Nam, I was on the DMZ in Korea.

To correct an oversight the 1/31st Inf up till 1976 was station permently across the imjin river and was replaced with the 2/9 Inf and that units back up was the 1/32nd the the two of them did the DMZ duty solely until 1977 when they rotated all the Infanty battlions on 90 day cycles. I was there when the axe murders happen on GP Ouelette on Aug 18 1976. I currently earn 4 Imjin Scout badges for over 80 missions and yes we deserved the CIB by reg's it's a cease fire not a truce and many fire fights took place and remember the super highway the NK's dug under the D with Tanks 10 wide and going back several miles. I was with the 1/32 Inf during my first and part of my second tour when it was deactivated in 1978 than transfer the 1/23 Inf

UNIT ASSIGNED: Advanced Combat Training Academy (ACTA)
TIME SERVED: 1966-1970


My name is Jerome L. Kendrick. I was assined to A Co, 2nd ST Bn (noy on your list) in Munsan from 01/1967 to 12/1968, ten days short of two years. I attended ACTA in April 1967. Not only was ACTA a sort of "Baby Ranger" training, it was also considered the NCO Academy for 2ID. We had the honor of being the only Army formal training site that used live ammo for our field problem we spent 72 consecutive hours patrolling on the DMZ.
My job with 2ST was to make sure all you guys north of "The River" stayed warm and ate, and had clothes and bullets. When I was a young PFC I was the tank truck driver that brought the diesel that heated your hooches...didn't you just love those space heaters with the 5-gallon jerry cans!!! I was in charge of the Division POL sites at Munsan and Yonjugol once I made E5. I have a picture somewhere. I also was in charge of the Division Bath Team. We manned and maintained the portable showers you guys used. As you can tell, most of my time was spent across the Imjin, so I was drawing HP pay for almost 16 months. Anyway, we were just up the road from Freedom Bridge and not far from the 7-0h-Duece and the 4/7Cav.
I noticed the ACTA certificate sent by one the guys. I'll bet no one realized the ACTA Commandant's signature is Roger C. Donlon, MAJ,USA. MAJ Donlon, then CPT, was the first MOH winner from Vietnam. He was the ACTA CO for about 6 months and I had the honor to meet him.
Well, thats it for now. I'll add more later.

IMJIN Scout Here!!
Served in C/2/9th Manchus at Camp Greaves as a young infantryman, a TOW gunner to be exact! What a place to learn to soldier! I went on to become a Korean linquist (both Basic and Intermediate Korean from DLI) and thorougly enjoyed the people, the land, and the culture. My second tour in Korea was at Tong Du Chon, 1-102nd MI. After that, spent 6 years in SF both 7th and 1st SFGA which took me back several times again! Great memories! Retired from military in 1999.

Dec. '66 thru Apr. '68 "C" Company, 11th Engineers Bn.[Combat]Uijombu, Camp Essayons. Does anyone remember the Insurance salesmen? The Encyclopedia salesmen? The Mason Shoe salesmen?
They were all American Ex-Military, who came around usually every payday. Good work, if you could get it, I guess. I had enough trouble just keepin' enough to buy smokes for the month, 'till I started makin' rank.
Got to spend some time, [and money] in the 'vill' after that. There were two 'pubs' we would go to, start drinkin' and ordered food. Well, it only took a few times doin' that and Momma-san told us she could cook better than that, so we would just pay her, we would be invited into the family courtyard, and we ate like Kings. Four or five of us did that for about a year. Good Times! Spent some time in the open-air markets, also. Bargainin' with the shop-keepers was a kick. I was in-country almost a year before I knew the Koreans used coins! All they ever used with us was currency. How 'bout ya'll?

Dec.'66 thru Apr.'68,C Company 11th Engineer Batallion [Combat] Camp Essayons, Uijombu. Not to change the subject, but where in hell is Don Lopez????
I've been tryin' to reach him for two weeks, and get negative response.
Hello......? Am I the only poor ol' Certificated Imjin Scout left in here? I recently found this "bitchin'" site that not only has an untold amount of hours of shear ass-kickin' work, blood,sweat,tears, devotion,
honor, bravery,courage, a virtual mountain of raw guts, help, healing, hope, but most of all,...love. It's hard to explain just how humbled I am to have worn the Patch that was so hard-earned by so many, when all I did was a little radio operatin',filled a bunch of sand-bags, and pulled some guard duty. Company C was attached to 2/2 Engineers for about five or six weeks around Aug. '67, when they were doin' all that construction in the "Z". We were Tented at, I believe, Camp Casey. We were there when the K-9 Handler got wounded, when the Jeep hit the mine, and I thought a Truck-Mounted Crain hit somethin' also...?
Anyway, I've got some more memories to share, if anyone's interested, but for now two things have stuck in my head like rusty deck spikes.
One is the 50 cal. holes in the girders of the Freedom Bridge, and the other is the frozen-snot scars on the upper-lips of all those little children. Anybody still wiyh me....? Later...

Great site. I am currentlythe Commander of the United Nations Command Security Battalion-JSA. We are the only unit left with both ROK and US Soldiers serving in the DMZ. Since 2004, the tactical missions of securing Pan Mun Jom, Freedom Village, and conducting counter-infiltraiton and surveillance patrols are carried out by ROK companies under the operaitonal control of a US Battalion commander and ROK-US staff. However, we still integrate US Infantryman into the dismounted patrols in the DMZ and carry out various surveillance and security operations to maintain the neutrality of the JSA. In the wake of the recent Choenan tragedy, we once again see how tensions can heat up quickly on the peninsula. I plan to conintue the Imjin Scout tradition for the current generation of soldiers, both ROK and US, who patrol inside the DMZ using the guidelines you have preserved here. Thanks for your dedicaiton and service. Today's generation have inherited a distinguished heritage.

As a member of Echo Co. 2nd Eng Bn I served nearly 10 of my 13 months tour living in a tent and running river patrols from above Liberty Bridge to below Freedom Bridge. I earned the Imjin scout patch with less then 2 months in country. When I left I was awarded a Imjinscout certicate listing a total of 9 months duty on the Imjin. "Hostile Fire Pay" was given for this duty yet When you left Korea you were no longer authorized to wear the Imjinscout patch on your uniform. Though many of us did. The explaination for this was because if you had enough time on the zone you got to wear the 2nd ID patch on your right shoulder.

How time fly's It seams like just yesterday but its been over 40 yrs and they still haven't found a peace in Korea ,till the nut cases in the North are eliminated there will be no peace .As long as they can bully the others on the peninsula they will.We are too afraid of what China might do but we still trade with them ,DA!If we want this to stop we need to just stop trading with them and our business's need to come back to the US and start over with out us they would not succeed. If they only served their people they would have no business at all .How many things do they make just for themselves .
Years ago we had missions to all parts of the world so they could pull themselves out of a hole not make it and send it back to us .If American is to make it we need to bring the factors and plant back to here where we can have jobs to keep this country strong.

I went to Korea in October, 1965. I was sent to R.C. No. 2, where I was assigned to the Imjun Scout School before we set up the school across the Imjun River next to R.C. No. 3. I was there from the beginning. We moved into tents in either late November 1965 or early December, 1965. I know we were there for Christmas 1965 because we had a party in the mess tent and a Brigadier General came to the party. The first head of the School was a Captain Marcek. I went to Seoul in April, 1966 to work for the Staff Historian of 8th U.S. Army. The 4-star then was General Bonesteel. I left Korea in September, 1966 to go to graduate school.

Hard to realize it has been so long form when I was there in Korea and to see how the place has changed so much .Glad they got it together there and gave the people the chance to improve their lives and families.
Hope the situation goes down some and things get worked out if not we may have a fight on our hands again .

Thanks for your fine website. I enjoyed it.

I served as a mechanized rifle platoon leader with A Co, 1-31st Infantry, 1971-72. Our battalion nickname was "The Bearcat Battalion." At the time. we were the only American battalion stationed "north of the river" of course, there were the American soldiers of the Joint Security Area (JSA) too. Most of the battalion was based at Camp Greaves, although
B Co and elements of HQ Company (those HQ Co elements were later assigned to the then newly formed Combat Support Company) were base at Camp Liberty Bell.

The 1-31st manned GP Collier, GP Ouellette, Freedom Bridge, and a portion of DMZ fence. Sometime in 1972, 1-17th Infantry assumed responsibility for Freedom Bridge. We had a 6-week rotation: each letter company alternately had 2 weeks of DMZ duty, 2 weeks of training, and 2 weeks on Freedom Bridge. Of course, we also conducted patrols in the DMZ.

I'm proud of my Imjin Scout award and wish the best to all Korea Defense Veterans. Pro Patria!

My first duty station was Korea and shortly after I arrived I found myself on the DMZ. Now my MOS was 11c, but the Scouts needed an FO to be on patrol w/them. I was the second guy picked as the first could not read a map, and thank God because patrolling the DMZ was the best experience of my career. Now, we were told we had to have 48 day/night patrols to receive the Imjinscout certificate, which I did receive, but we knew nothing about a patch, and it was 1991. Those times on the DMZ made me a stronger and more aware soldier I believe. SCOUTS OUT! I’ll Try Sir!

Hope everything is ok because it’s been over two months since an update to the guestbook. I hope you haven’t abandoned this website Don, and/or you are ok, this is a great website.

I wrote in the guestbook back in August 3, 2009 and October 31, 2009 about trying to get medals that were stolen from a burglary. August of 2009 I sent a request for my DD214 and how to get replacement medals. April 2010 I finally received replacement medals (NDSM, AFEM and marksman medal) and the KDSM. I received earlier a copy of my DD215, which is a corrected or updated DD214.

I managed to buy on EBay two Imjin Scout Badges. Now all I need to do is get Imjin Scout patch and the unit crest for the 2/9th and for the 1/31stwhich is easier to get so I can finally make a shadow box.

I found on the www.31stinfantry.org website the history of the 31st,, a really interesting read. I was in the 2/9th when it changed over to the 1/31st on June 17, 1971. Now if anyone can tell me the dates of what camps Bravo Company stayed at from November 1970 to February 1972 I would greatly appreciate it. I just wish I would have kept a journal but nnnnoooooo!!!!

I have a few pictures of my time around and in the DMZ on my website at www.davidevans.us.

I was in Korea in 1966-67 and part of the frst quarter of 1968 located at Camp Hunt with
'B Battery 5th 38th Artillery. The nearest was Pob-wa-ni Just north of Munsan, located
in the 'DMZ Area'. I was part of the first contingent of selected personell to become a part on the Imjin Scouts at Camp Sitman in the last part of 1966 first part of 1967. I was part of 23 patrols along the South Bank of the Imjin River and suppoted short staffed infantry units.

I have been researching the above information an I am coming up empty on all counts. I cannot find my unit on any map I have found or the village of Pob-wa-ni. I recieved no accreditation for that TDY, no hazardous duty pay, in fact we were told that the patch was non-regulation and could not wear it, I wore it anyway, with pride, and with a lot of empty threats.

Can you help me out with this, so I can put this to bed once and for all. I'm 63 years old I am

I served with A co 1/38th at Camp Hovey from JUL 84 to Jul 85. I had 25 missions between the fences. 20 as an RTO, 2 as a scout for the next unit moving into AO Black and 3 with the M-21 Rifle. Pulled some time on GP128 also. Had a Captian inspecting weapons at the main gate and a round went off from the rifle he was inspecting. Ever try to match and replace a damaged sandbag? well we had us a captain in our pocket after that! On one posting here I read that you can leave Korea, but it will never leave you. Boy he was on the money on that one. 25 years have gone by and certain smells and sounds put me right back there. I am an Imjin Scout and I am very proud of that title. I got my CIB in Grenada with the 3/325th AIR, 82nd ABN, but Korea is where I got my Army training. PT 6 days a week...whew! The 1/38th also did a forced march back to Hovey, via the football field at Casey, when our mission was over. LTC Montano took the senic route and we did 42 miles! Rock Of the Marne! That is one trip that will never leave me, or the Western Corrodar (?) fun run of 17 miles, the Manchu Mile!.(I still have the T shirt!)

I served in Battery D, 6/37th Artillery and attended the ACTA in early 1967. One thing that stands out in my memory is one night on a stake out and we went though the worst thunder and lightening storm I have witnessed to this day. I was the radio man and kept taking the radio off because I was afraid the long whip on the unit would attract the lightening. This pissed off my sergeant who threatened me with formal dicipline but never followed through.

I was in 3rd Sqd. 2nd Plt. and we had a KATUSA that defected to North Korea from 2nd Sqd. on 26 Nov. 1986. I even remember his name Pvt. Kim' Jung Wun(JW).
Our Plt. pulled duty on Guardpost Collier as our 1st cycle at Warrior base. We were then on patrol duty for the 2nd cycle, this is when he defected.

I returned to Korea in June 87- June 88. I was stationed with 5/20 Inf. Regt.(formally 1/17 Inf. Regt.) Camp Casey. I actually found propaganda leaflets with Kim, J.W.'s picture on them. He appeared to be sitting in a nightclub with a woman(his so called wife?) ther is a camera on the table, and a can of what appears to be the old 1980's New Wave Coke can.

Hello,
My name is Ismael Lopez and I would like to reconnect with my buddies from Korea and touch bases. I hope they are all doing fine. I was station in Korea during 1967-1968.

I was in the 1st Batallion, 38th Infantry, Company B, 2nd Infantry Division. I was an Imjin Scout, I earned my scout insignia at CC3.

I was stationed at Middle Camp Custer ( I even have a sign that reads, "Mission Safety. Safety wins more than Luck. 1st Batallion, 38th Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division, Middle Camp Custer"

We used would go on Hunter-Killer partrol, also Night Ambush and also used to stay the nights in the fox hole at the barrier. We also spent nights at the observation point. We used to hear the North Korean speakers all night long!

After 6 months I was transfered, to the 2nd MP unit.

I remember some of my friends were Bob Watson, Donnie M. Baker, Marrero (who was transfered from Vietnam due to injury, I think he was cuban and from New York) we were good friends and I have several pictures of them.

I have several pictures of my old buddies and Korea and would very much like to reconnect with anyone who may have been there at this time or who remembers me.

Hope to see or hear from someone soon. Bye.

You can email me at partytimepartysupplies@yahoo.com -- If you can respond please mention that this is in regards to Korea in the subject line so that I know who it is and do not accidentally miss the email. Look forward to hearing from someone soon.

I arrived at the DMZ in Nov. 67 and came back to the world in Sept. 68. I served with the 1/9th, TOC (tactical operations center), I left as a Sgt. E5. When we were up North I was stationed @ JSA with the QRF (strike force) that's where TOC was then located. My good friend then was Leroy Jacks who was in the front seat of the 3/4 truck that was ambushed on Easter morning, he was the only survivor. I tried to find him a few years ago but he had passed away from cancer, he was from Blackwell, Ok.

I was referred to your site by a guy at the Korean War Project. I'm trying to find guys from AF Security Police units who were at the DMZ for Combat Preparedness training the last week of April and the first week of May 1970. I was with the 354th later changed to the 6157th Security Police Squadron at Kunsan AB. I would really like to hear from some of them. My reason is the Agent Orange issue since I am a Type II insulin dependant diabetic. I was there about 1-11/2 months after the ambush of the 4 soldiers on our side of the zone.
Your site brings back memories of my time in the ROK.

Regarding the KDSM.

I was burglarized just over two years ago. The thieving scumbags took all my army medals, name tag, my Pristine condition Imjim Scout Badge, 2/9 belt buckle, and whatever else that goes with the dress greens.

I couldn't find my DD214 and applied for (in August) a copy and how could I get medals that were stolen.

I received the DD214 today along with a second page called a DD215. The DD215 is an correction to the DD214. I've read about a Korean Defense Service Medal (KDSM) that was in the works. The DD215 adds the KDSM.

The cover letter states that they will be sending a National Defense Service Medal (NDSM), Armed Forces Expedition Medal (AFEM), Sharpshooter Badge with Auto Rifle Bar, and the KDSM. Now if I could just get the Imjin Scout badge. I'll have to be on the look out for one somewhere.

(Status: awaiting approval and processing at the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC). Request has not been submitted for fulfillment. Contact (314)-801-0800.)

I was in Korea with the 2nd/9th about Nov 1970 - Feb 1972. Sometime around spring or summer the 2nd/9th changed to the 1st/31st.

I put up on my web page a 1970 2/9 yearbook and 1971 1/31 yearbook. I also put up a few pictures while in the DMZ and others.

Anybody remember a Guard Post Johnson in the DMZ. I ask because I don't remember the names of the GP's while I was there but I have a picture with the name GP Johnson.

Regarding your guestbook posting to the Imjin Scout web site on October 28, 2009:

"I take exception to the statement that the Pueblo crew was released in January, 1969. I was there when they were released and it was before January, 1969. I returned to the states in January, 1969." ....

You are correct sir! Thank you for the correction. I will try to update the web pages with this error as soon as possible. I have included a link to an official U.S. Naval report that clarifies the dates:

'Quite unexpectedly on December 19, 1968 the purge for "confessions" was discontinued abruptly and on December 23, 1968 the Pueblo crew in its entirety was returned to South Korea.'

It was actually December 23, 1968....just 8 days before January...
Thank you for taking the time to bring this to my attention.

Hi to all fellow Bearcats. I was in HHC 1/31 from 11-74 to 12-75. I worked in the motorpool and I drove the wrecker. If you were a mechanic at any of the companies, you probably remember me. I was the one who lifted the pack out of the PC's and put the rebuilt ones back in. Looking for any other Bearcats who might have known me there or was on a "fire mission" w/me. Especially looking for Bo, Ed Schwanke, Marvin Stallsmith, Pee Wee or my best chingo Eric Gray. Great site, brings back alot of memories of a shitty place w/great chingos. Pro Patria.

My name is Christopher Atkinson, my service # was 18859315
I was in "B"co.2/23rd and was on the DMZ in Oct.'68-Jan.'69, at Camp Greaves. In Oct. of '68 I was on a fence position with a PFC Lennox of "C"co.2/23rd, he was wounded while walking the fence. I had to treat his wound and carry him to a jeep, as it could not get to us because it was too muddy and slick to drive on. I need help to verify that I was indeed with him, as I was injured while carrying him and falling several times going up a hill to the jeep. I can't find anything to verify that I was with him, and need proof for a Comp. claim. Also I would like to become a member.
Thank You,

Great site and looking around it brings back a lot of memories, both good and bad, from my 16 months (3 month involuntary extension) at Freedom Bridge and the DMZ with Charlie Company 1st of the 23rd from February 1968 until May 1969. I did many things during those 16 months, from being the FDC in our 81mm weapons platoon, driving a "secret" light jeep used for light missions on the line, Charge of quarters and spending many long nights with my KATUSA friend in a hole on the line. I also had a top security clearance and worked on the prototype of the night observation device (NOD Squad) and McNamara’s secret anti-intrusion devise testing. It was never dull. I made some good friends over there who I am still in touch with. When I got home there was a brand new 1969 candy apple red Mustang Mach 1 sitting in the garage that I had my parents buy for me with the combat pay that I saved up. Those were the days.

Steven,
What a pleasant surprise to hear from you and hear that you are the son of Rodney Jenderseck. I was assigned to Co A, 2/9th at the same time as your father and remember him very well.

It is hard to believe that it was 40 years ago. I spent most of 1969 on the DMZ with Co A, 2/9th and if I recall correctly your dad worked in the motor pool. Does your dad use email?

I will try this again. I was with HHC 1/38 Inf from Feb 1968 until March 1969. I did a short stint (30 days) with 1/9th at Cp. Custer in Pajuri. It sat right under Charlie Block. I went back to the 1/38 after I turned 18. I earned my Imjin patch while across the river doing patrols. No man's land was a little scary. Gate 17 was even scarier. I sent a message on this site yesterday but have not seen it posted. I guess Don is busy. So to all of you still out there, ROCK OF THE MARNE and KEEP UP THE FIRE. I wore them both.

The two units used to switch every 6 months from Cp. Custer to the first Cp. on the other side of Shang Pa Ri Village. I think it was called Cp. Wilson (not sure). I have been in the 1st Chance/Last Chance bar by the bridge. I also was awarded the Imjin patch while across the river. I volunteered for every patrol I could get.

This is a shout out to all my fellow brothers I proudly served with on my back to back tours '82 to '84...


SSG Smith (I am still proud to have been one of your S*%t Stains) I learned so much from you about being a good soldier, and a good man that I will never forget you as long as I live. Throughout my 9 years on active duty you always were my favorite squad leader!

1Sgt Troy Graham - Top... I still love you like a father. You inspired me through my whole career, and still do in my civilian life, all these years later! De Oppressor Libre

Captain Howard - What can I say... You were a great mentor who made a lifelong impact on me. De Oppressor Libre

SFC Winget (Ranger Bill) - Thanks for always believing in me, and saving me from that douchebag LT.

SSG Rothrock - Damn good thing Heywood didn't blow our asses up with that handgrenade... Every time I watch Pulp Fiction and I see the scene where that guy busts out of the bathroom and unloads on Jules and Vincent and misses every shot I think about that rainy night when the door got blown off the back of the squad hut.

Jody Cashion - where the hell are u brother... I am back home in the Pacific NW.

Hi, Really enjoyed your site! I am proud to have served as a medic with HHT 4/7 Cavalry posted at Camp Garry Owen, just outside Yon Ju Gol in Paju Province from 1987-1988. I was able to complete 30 DMZ patrols while attached to Alpha and then Bravo troops. I will NEVER as long as I live forget how dark it got when on a night op. Our squad always reconned up to the perimeter fence, doubled back and set up an ambush for an hour or two. During that time, it would be as black as ink on moonless nights and the damn North Korean propaganda towers never stopped with their messages rolling through the hills and valleys. Upon completion of the missions, I was awarded a "DMZ Mission" certificate from the Commander and an (unoffical) OD Green Imjin Scout patch and dress medal. Weren't s'pose to, but I snuck out my "DMZ Police" armband all were required to wear while on patrol. I need to dig that stuff out. Thanks for the site and for providing me a chance to think aobut my time in Korea. Take care, Tom Clark

Don

Great site brings back lots of memories.

I served from Oct/Nov 70 to Feb 72 with the 2/9th(M) B Co. 2nd platoon.
I must admit that almost 40 years later I can't remember the first camp I stayed at. I'm assumming that it was Camp Lawton because of a Stars and Strips article I have. Seems like a few months later (Jan-Mar 1971) we moved to Liberty Bell.

I can't remember when the 2/9 changed to the 1/31(M), June/July maybe? Anyone with info please let me know.

I have lots of slides that at present I'm scanning (just started last week). Some are not in great shape (thanks to the ex) but lots are ok.

Don, I have two year books that I could scan for you if you like. On the cover of one is 2/9 Korea 1970, published Dec 1970 (question, what does the 8th army have to do with the 2/9? Is it the Man Chu II?). The other is 1/31(M) Camp McKenzie (figures the name would be on the cover of this one) 1971 Korea, published Jul 71 (also says photgraphed Jul 71. If anyone else would like one, let me know.

I found your site because I trying to reconnect people I served with.

I was sent to the RoK sortly after the USS Pueblo was captured and the Blue House Raid!

I was assigned to HHC, 1st Bn 38th Infantry. First to the Recon Platoon then to Bn S-1.

I saw the Pueblo crew being released towards the end of my tour. That was an interesting day! Every battalion north of the river was on full alert! There were patrols everywhere! There was a battery of 105's "North of the River" with the barrels darned near vertical. First time I ever saw them there. The gun crews were at the guns! The 4/7th Cav seemed to have more tanks across than the usual platoon or so next to the RR bridge. APC's were all over the place too!

I never visited the "First Chance/Last Chance Bar" "home for wayward girls" or any of the other places on the south side the cement bridge! Not the "Turkey Farm" down by Camp Custer either! "Hey GI! You want...........?" I also never took the bus that went thru Artillery Valley to the town on the crossroads between the 2d ID and 7th ID Sectors to visit the Turkish Bath that was there! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Have all my Imjin Scout patches and the Certificate as well! Right now am looking at my enameled Imjin Scout DMZ badge in the vinyl hanger that was worm on khakis.

On Christmas morning, 1970, we were patrolling an area in the middle of the DMZ a few miles from Panmunjom.t was a four hour patrol along the edge of the MDL. We spotted a North Korean patrol about 200 feet away. They were gathering firewood. Everyone on both sides hit the ground. After a tense moment or two, I picked up a piece of wood and waved it at them and pointed to the piece of wood and at them. One of them picked up a stick and waved it at me, and then pointed at himself.
A level of communication was reached: You guys are collecting firewood, yes we are collecting firewood. One of them recognized me from my time on GP Lucy, when where we would wave at the North Koreans and do things to get their officers upset (acting like an empty box was a new weapon would get several sets of binoculars trained on us quickly). We all got up slowly and there was a lot of waving and smiling. I think a few people in their patrol were from Warsaw Pact nations and we had a few KATUSAs with us. I started decorating a small tree with some propaganda leaflets we had found and some c-ration cans. They went their way and we went ours. It appeared that they were carrying SKS rifles instead of AK's.
I remember some of the guys from our unit,although I don't remember who was in our 9 or 10 man patrol that day. The names I remember were:
Sergeant Haynes, Sgt. Washington,Gerloff, Jesus Zamora,Kelly and a KATUSA named HWANG. I was on at least 23 DMZ patrols, usually out of Camp Dodge or GP Katy or GP Lucy. I was in Korea from September 1970 to March 1971. I wonder if anyone ever heard of this incident.

We were engaged in Electronic Counter Measures and I was a high speed radio operator. We were subjected to incursions and infiltraters from North Korea. One May Day (May 1st, which is a Communist holiday) we were issued a tripod mounted 50 calibre machine gun to repel the demonstrators and mob that threatened us and our classified equipment....

I was with the 8195th Army Unit, 8th Army in 1954 and 1955 along the DMZ just west of Panmunjam on a remote mountain top. I was a high speed radio operator assigned to an ECM team. I recorded a Russian telemetry signal out of Manchuria that was being used to bounce signals off the moon, getting ready for the launch of Sputnik...We were subject to infiltraters and incursions from North Korea, especially at night. We carried loaded carbines and ammo all the time, and we lived in Jamesways and even had infiltraters attack us at night in our sleeping quarters. We had classified electronics that the North Koreans and the Chinese and Russians wanted..Our mission was similar to the mission of the USS Pueblo. Anyone have any stories about the frequent infiltraters and night incursions and the fleeing civilians trying to escape North Korea?

I found this site while looking up references to the tree cutting incident at Panmunjom. Neat reflection from the past. I spent a few weeks with the B Co. 1/31 Mech in the OPs and doing the patrols in the DMZ. The mosquitoes were murder during the monsoon season. I also remember we had to send a team out to find "Butter Bar" who had somehow got "misoriented" during a night patrol and did not know their way back to the GP. All in all I think it was a good experience.

The Defense Department announced today the creation of theKorean Defense Service Medal (KDSM). The KDSM is a service medal to give special recognition for the sacrifices and contributions made by members of the U.S. armed forces who have served or are serving in the Republic of Korea.


Public Law 107-314 legislated the creation of a new medal to recognize military service in the Republic of Korea and the surrounding waters.


Members of the armed forces authorized the KDSM must have served in support of the defense of the Republic of Korea. The area of eligibility encompasses all land area of the Republic of Korea, and the contiguous water out to 12 nautical miles, and all air spaces above the land and water areas.

The KDSM period of eligibility is July 28, 1954, to a future date to be determined by the secretary of defense.

Servicemembers must have been assigned, attached, or mobilized to units operating in the area of eligibility and have been physically deployed in the area of eligibility for 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days or meet one of the following criteria:


Be engaged in actual combat during an armed engagement, regardless of the time in the area of eligibility.

Is wounded or injured in the line of duty and requires medical evacuation from the area of eligibility.

While participating as a regularly assigned air crewmember flying sorties into, out of, within, or over the area of eligibility in support of military operations. Each day that one or more sorties are flown in accordance with these criteria shall count as one day toward the 30 or 60-day requirement.


Personnel who serve in operations and exercises conducted in the area of eligibility are considered eligible for the award as long as the basic time criteria is met. Due to the extensive time period for KDSM eligibility, the nonconsecutive service period for eligibility remains cumulative throughout the entire period.


The KDSM may be awarded posthumously, and only one award of the KDSM is authorized for any individual.

Each military department will prescribe appropriate regulations for administrative processing, awarding and wearing of the KDSM and ribbon for their servicemembers, to include application procedures for veterans, retirees, and next-of-kin.

More than 40,000 members of the U.S. armed forces have served in the Republic of Korea or the waters adjacent thereto each year since the signing of the cease-fire agreement in July 1953, which established the Demilitarized Zone. For more than 50 years, U.S. Armed Forces efforts to deter and defend the Korean Peninsula have helped maintain democracy and preserve the indomitable spirit of freedom.

I was at Camp Howze, 1985-1987. We lived and patrolled on the DMZ from April 1986-Oct. 1986 and we recieved a very nice certificate for the Imjin Scout Award. I have to tell a story before I go. We were at Guard Post Oullete (sp) performing stand-to. I was sitting under the tripod of the 50 caliber (automatic weapons were not allowed in the DMZ) half asleep. My partner at the time was SP4 Johnson. Johnson was scared of everything. A rat started crawling up my leg and in my sleep induced partial coma I tried to shake him off. Johnson started yelling, "Corporal Baird" what's wrong, he freaked out, got up to run and nailed the bunker and knocked him out. After he was revived I laughed so hard I nearly passed out! Seems like the whole time I was there we had times like that.

I served with B Co., 1/503 from July 1987 to July 1988. Served on the DMZ from October to December 1987.

Bn Cdr, LTC David Grange had the battalion roadmarch from Cp Hovey to The DMZ. I served in Korea again from 1994 to 1997. I doubt a roadmarch to the Z could be done now without getting someone runover. I ran into LTC Grange at Cp Roberts or Robertson, Little Rock, Arkansas when I was TDY there from Ft Campbell in 1999. He was 2 star then. He was a tough, but good leader. My CO after the Z was CPT Kanamine, a great guy. He had everyone in the companys respect.

Somebody on this site mentioned the 1/503 Mess Hall at Cp Hovey. A real slop chute. When I was there in 1994 it had already been torn down. A superhooch went up in its place. Bn HQ was demolished also. In the 90's there was an effort to get rid of all quonset huts in Korea. I went on google earth (type in Tongduchon) and you can see CP Casey and Cp Hovey. The entire Second Brigade area as we knew it is gone and replaced with super hooches. Pretty much the same thing happened at Cp Red Cloud too. Time marches on.

I'm the battalion webmaster for the UNCSB-JSA unit website I am in the process of collecting just about everything and anything I can get my hands on regarding this fine unit.

I was wondering if anybody out there served with CPT Bonifas or LT Barrett I would really like to put some normal everyday pictures of them on the site but the only ones I can my hands on are the two official photos and the 18 taken by MAJ(R) Larry G. Shaddix.

Ms. Marcia Bonifas was here a few weeks ago, she brought the media with her, they wanted to see if we had any pictures of her husband but unfortunately, I think those are either with those who knew or served with them who knows, maybe one of you are reading this post and have something to offer.

Thanks.

First thanks to all the Scouts (enlisted,nco's and officers) that responded to my post about retroactive award of the Scout patch.
I would like to relate an incident which recently took place. I was out to a Sunday brunch with a military club and I was wearing my 2nd Div. baseball cap. A woman from another group called out "Hey 2nd ID how are you?" I was surprised and asked her how she knew the division. She said she spent time in Korea as a teacher and one of her jobs was teaching English to KATUSAs. She asked if I ever heard my name over the NK loudspeakers. I told her I never did but it was nice to talk to a civilian who understood what was going on there. She asked if I had learned any Korean and of course I said about the only thing I remembered was Hey Yobosayo and she laughed. We talked about ourtime in Korea for awhile and then we were called to our brunch seatings. I told her about this site. This was on Long Island New York.

I came across this site by accident and I am glad i did. I served from 1986-1987 with A Company 1/31st, and they were some of the best days of my life. I wish to get in ocntact with anyone from back then and share stories and such. I am retired now from the service but loved catching crap for proudly wearing my ImJin Scout badge all those years. I did see the article on the supposed phony Im Jin Scout patches and I have seen the ones posted on here as fakes on the custom jackets bought "down range" that it seemed everyone bought while there. hope that helps. I served during the last year that the 1/31st was active and have a compnay yearbook frommy time ther if someone needs copies let me know. Also I had gotten one of the 1/31st coins that were made in lue of the deactivation, but saddly had it lost in a fire some years ago. If anyone can send me information of where i can get one let me know.

Comments: I just learned yesterday that we have lost another Vet who was helping in the fight to change the Agent Orange Law for all Korea Vets.

Sp.4 Dennis A. Grahn who served in C Company, 2nd Engineer Bn, 2d Infantry Division suffered a fatal heart attack while traveling from his home in Fairfield, California to Oregon for Thanksgiving Dinner.

Dennis was very helpful in our effort by sending photos, statements and a copy of his Hostile Fire Pay Orders listing numerous other men. In Korea he worked on the massive job of installing the new chain link barrier fence, cleared old minfields and daily swept entry points and DP's for Infantry Patrols entering theZone. Dennis leaves his wife, Linda and one daughter that I know of.

Although he will be missed by friends and family, we know he is now in a better place and no longer suffering the effect of Agent Orange Poisoning.

Hello
Is it possible to apply for the imjin scout certificate 40 years later. I was with 2nd inf div 69-70 but was not infantry mos. It was my belief all these years infantry mos was required but through the website I found the 2nd div regulation that I now believe makes me eligible for a scout certificate. I was assigned to c co. 702 maint. bn. We were in a camp which also had 4/7 cav. I was a company driver and spent a lot of time in the dmz as driver and or escort to maintenance personnel performing mission on the dmz. I do have copies of hostile fire pay for at least four months that I can find after so long. I know I performed at least 50 missions into the dmz and remember spending time at 1/9,2/9,1/38 and others i can't remember. I do remember my vehicle was a 151 bumper number c-8. If I am eligible for a scout certificate I would like to get one even though I'm no longer a 19 year old soldier I still have pride in serving with the second division. I also have many photos I would like to share.
Thanks

I was a young inexperienced Sgt. I had already been to Vietnam and earned my CIB as a Pfc. I left the service after 3 years and returned with my first trip to Korea.That was 68-69 in the 2/23 B Company. I went to the ACTA and it was my first NCO training. I will not put down the unit or men. But I have to say I was young(21 and dumb.) We seemed to be on the end of the supply line because of the war and I guess our commitments in Germany and around the world.
I spent the next 22 years in the Infantry, I ended up working for City and County government. I will soon retire from my 3rd career as a teacher.I will be 62 this March.

Hello, Don,

It's a while since I last contacted you.

We are presently in contact with our first company commander of the 1st Provisional DMZ Police Company, 1st Marine Division. Captain (retired major) Sam Goich was the main force behind the forming and operating of the fledgling DMZ company from its September 1953 debut until he rotated back to the US in 1954.

"Captain Sam" is 83-years-old, lives in Somerset, New Jersey and is in delicate health. He is suffering from the onset of Parkinson's disease, but he is still sharp as a tack and his memory is first rate. One of our group speaks with him at least once a week, it seems to perk him up a lot to reminisce, according to his sister who is caring for him.

The attached photo shows Captain Sam, on the right, talking with General Randolph Mc. Pate, commanding general of the 1st Marine Division. Pate went on to become commandant of the Marine Corps.


Semper Fidelis! and Merry Christmas!

Bob Caulkins

I'd like to send the photo I mentioned above, can you tell me what address to send it to? Thanks.

Yobosayo, Old Buddy. I've not dropped in for too many years. I checked in a few months ago and saw no updates had been posted for a matter of years, and I was saddened, but apparently not enough to do anything about it. I was (egotistically) running a GOOGLE search for myself this morning and was delighted to see you alive and well.
I'm still in Loganville, having been joined by my wife in retirement. We enjoy screaming at one another. We've adopted our grandson, who is now 7, holder of a junior black belt, and speaks better Korean than I.

Fantastic site! I just learned I get to add a 14th piece of salad to my dress greens in the shape of the KDSM.

I was manning bunker 9 at Guardpost Ouellette in November of 1984 when the huge firefight broke out down in the village. I got lots of good intel when 3 previously undiscovered North Korean spider holes opened up less than 100 meters from the MDL! They popped up to see what the all the excitement was and I told the PFC that was on duty with me to wire up the Claymores.

Ahhh, good times :D

Have pictures of them in buses coming from freedom bridge and stopping at JSA to go into latrine. Tried to have press conference but Cmdr. unable to answer questions, they flew them out to Seoul. I pictures of them getting onto Hueys and flying south.
The picture o the mud road is very familiar, didn't they have some trick bridge to cross the Imjin River on, it had a dog leg half way across.An MP gave me a basard as a souvenir

I was a track driver (D32 "Heavy metal noize") assigned to D Co. 3rd Plt. During our rotation at Warrior Base I was the RTO - loved learning all those brevity codes!! I remember my time on the "Z" as one of the best times I had in the Army (except for the rats in bunker #11 on GP Ouellete). I miss the "thunder runs" in TDC, soju kettles, and the smell of kimchee and ondol smoke in the morning.....battalion runs with a hang-over and 1sg Storme's nightblasts.
I too would like to know where I can find an Imjin Scouts patch I never got one I only have the certificate and the class A button-badge.

Enjoy the site very much!! I was in Korea from Feb., 1968 to April, 1969. I was a forward observer in the 4.2 mortor platoon, HHC, 3/23rd. During this time the battalion rotated from "North" to "South" about every 3 or 4 months. I believe our camp north of the Imjin was Camp Lawton, just on the north side of "Freedom Bridge". When we were "North", since I was a FO, I would spend four days on a GP in the Zone, and then four days back in compound in Fire Direction Control. This was my summer of 1968 and late winter and early spring of 69. This is when I received my Scout patch.

This site has brought back many memories, some good, some not so good.

I still have the 3/23rd battalion yearbooks for 68 and 69. I could scan portions if anyone is interested.

Thanks again for the site!!

I was had a classified mission with the 8195 Army Unit, 8th Army. My first classified mission was on Hill 1174 along the DMZ, west of Panmunjam. My second classified mission was along the Imjin River along the DMZ. I was intercepting and recording Morse code transmissions by the North Koreans, and Chinese, and the Russians. These enemies were using slight variations of International Morse Code, so I was able to recognize and record them. We used triangulation to locate the site of transmission. Because of the classified nature of our mission we always had ROK forces nearby. On Hill 1174 we were next to a ROK marine observation post that was dug into the hill overlooking North Korea. The ROK Marines would frequently capture civilians, probably escaping from North Korea. The ROKs would interrogate these victims with such brutality that the captured often died. The ROK officer explained that the victims were Communists. Out in front we were intimidated by Russian Tanks driven by North Koreans and were subjected to sniper fire. This was a very dangerous situation and we were in constant danger. Along the Imjin we often saw the ROK forces force women and children and babies back from the garbage pit while we dumped our garbage. These starving women and children were trying to get something to eat,they lived in holes in the ground by the garbage dump. The ROKs fired over the heads of the women and children and often there would be women and children killed because of the indiscriminate firing. This also was a very dangerous place and on May Day we were given a 50 cal. machine gun to protect our selves and our classified equipment from May Day demonstrations. I was able to intercept and record enemy transmissions.

If you aren't a member of either association think about joining. Our WW II and Korean Vets are leaving us. Get active and join us. This reunion there were 4 or 5 DMZ Vets. We need more of us.

Hello Fellow Warriors,
My name is Bob Haynes and some of you may recognize my name as I have been helping some guys with VA claims for AO exposure.
I have just been appointed National Secretary/Treasurer for the 2nd. Indianhead Association. This is a 501c(3) and (4) group of 2nd. Infantry Division veterans. Most are from WWII and the Korean War era. There are a few of us from the Cold War era and some active duty troops in the Association BUT we need more of our era to join to keep the life blood of the Association pumping! Ther are approx. 1,000 WWII and Korean War veterans dying every day. We need to step up and start taking care of the association before it dies away. Please contact me if you are interested and I can provide more information.
Very best regards!

Hello Brave Veterans..

I am hoping someone can help me return an personal artifact ( a lighter) to it's owner. For some strange reason I was compelled to buy this lighter a few years ago at a flea market table in Michigan. I felt a sense of needing to protect and preserve it as it seemed very special. It has a map on the backside of it with the Libby and Freedom bridge, as well as Imjim and RC 3. The front has a crest shaped insignia with a white cross, a horse head like figure with a cross like pole in his hand and lightblue circle somewhat earth shaped..And the following lettering A CO 3d BN 23 INF. I hope someone can help me figure out who it might have belonged to or perhaps your group would like it as memorabilia?..Thank you...Eva Weeden North Branch Michigan..email is lyiness@yahoo.com...

I proudly served with B Trp, 4th/7th US Cavalry at Camp Stanton or Rice, It's been so long ago but I distinctively remember our camp had the Airfield. At the time of my assignment, I was a 11D, Armor Recon Scout on a gun jeep. Memories of my tour are now fading but my Pucker Factor shot through the roof during Operation Paul Bunyan.

I then returned for another tour with CSC, 2nd/72nd Armor at Camp Casey. I think that was back in 79-80.

Sorry to be so long in posting this. I thought I already had.

Today (6 April 2008) is a day of mixed feelings for me. I received this message this morning -

FROM: Monica Ivey, Daughter of 1SGT Carl Ivey - Received at 10:00 (Eastern Time) this morning -

Carl Ivey's transition

"I'm writing to inform you of the passing of my father, Carl Ivey, this morning. He had a real struggle the past two weeks but was a mighty soldier until the end. I want to thank you for all your kind words and prayers the past few months. You were a real encouragement."
* * *
I realize that many of you never knew 'TOP' Ivey, but for those of us who served with him, we feel sorrow for his passing. However, we can also feel a sense of joy and celebration that 'Top' has now moved to a place where there is no more sorrow, pain or war.

Top has been fighting Cancer and other complications for many months and underwent numerous surgeries at Walter Reed Army Hospital. When I last spoke with him he told me he had retired as an E-8 after 24 years in the Army. He had served at least two tours in Vietnam, and two + tours in Korea, one of which I had the great honor of having him beside me. I have no reservations saying that had Agent Orange not been invented, Top would still be with us today.

Today, I have no doubt that Top is walking along streets of gold and linking arms with family members and his many soldier friends who went before him.

1SGT Carl Ivey (Hatchet Handle Ivey) was a good man, a fine soldier, a loving and caring father and grandfather, and a strong Christian and Friend, and we will miss him. But I am happy that he now serves in the Army of our Maker.

It was my intention to visit Top on my trip to Washington, DC on 15 April. I hope to still visit him while I am there, if I can.

I have included Top's daughter's e-mail address, should you care to send his family a message.

Hi,
I'm looking for any information or if anyone knows of a soldier from A?2/31stInf 7th Division .Who in April 1968 stepped on a mine in the DMZ while on a patrol during early morning or late night.Possibly from 5April to 21April 1968. There were two big incidents ,but this would have been from Aco not Bco 2/31st.
I was a member of A co and I found a page on line that stated the SM was looking to get his PH and was turned down by the Military Board of Corrections Review.
I have info for him to help get his PH.

Hello Guys -

The long awaited Binder of Evidence and Proof of 2nd Engineer Battalion's work in Korea is about ready to go the the printers.

Office Depot here as agreed to do the copies of the documents at a reduced price. I am working on a few other large retail companies to try to get a break on the actual binders and Index Tabs to make the project complete and useful.

It is my plan to send two (2) complete binders to each of you. One to file with your claim to the VA and one for you to duplicate and share with your Service Officers and your U.S. Congressional Representatives (both Senators and Representatives). There will be a sample letter included for you to use a a guide when writing your Legislators in Washington, DC, asking them to introduce and sponsor/co-sponsor/support bills to include all Veterans who served in Korea during the same times as those troops who served in Vietnam.

I thought I would be able to get more companies here in the area to help with production and shipping of these binders than I have gotten. I am still going to do it and will ship them out in batches as my personal funds permit.

Just so you all know, several of the guys listed here are not 2nd Engineers, but we had contact with them and their Units and Compounds and they are affected by Agent Orange just as much as we are. Several are from Camp McIntyre in Artillery Valley, which was just down and across the road from E Co., 2nd Engineer Bn.. Because of the weapons they had at their Compound, their perimeters were heavily sprayed by 2nd Engineer personnel to maintain secure clear fields of fire.

Several guys have indicated they are willing and able to contribute some to the cost of producing this binder. I thought I could do it all on my own, but it is running more than I anticipated. If any of you are able to contribute some, that would be great. HOWEVER, everybody will get the binders, regardless of whether you can contribute or not.

If you can and want to contribute anything, you can send it through PayPal to my e-mail address pesteward@hotmail.com or you can mail it to:

Phil Steward
799 Beaumont Road
Rock Spring, Georgia 30739-2406

Also, if any of you have any photos or documents showing Hostile Fire Pay orders or vouchers, 2nd Engineer personnel, vehicles or equipment working above the Imjin River, along the Fence, in the ZONE on bunkers and roads or anything else that might help prove we were there, send it along ASAP, PLEASE, so I can include it. I got some really great batches of pictures and a certified copy of a Stars and Stripes newspaper with great coverage and photos of the road work A and D Companies were doing.

Finally, if you have not already done so, please send me an e-mail with your name, full street address and phone number, so I know where to send the binders. I will be sending them by UPS and they can not deliver to a PO Box, so make sure, please, that it is a street address. If your only choice is to send to a P.O. Box, tell me and I will send yours by US Mail.

Hang in there guys - they will be there shortly.

Phil Steward

I was a truck driver at 2nd st battalion in 1968 from feb to april 1969 I went to the dmz many times lots days and was a imjim scout and still have the insignia they gave me. While I was there it was many incidents that the nk did to the us troups there. Seems to em they were the ones that always ambushed the us troups and we never did it to them.I drove the ksc's to the dmz to cut the foolage and it seems it was sprayed with something that we thought was deisel fuel. If anyone was there or knows what was sprayed could they tell me have to file a claim and where I go to do it. My e-mail is jimrhon@schoollink.net thanks and good luck to all the guys that were there.

Two years ago had prostrate cancer and a year later found that we were exposed to AGENT ORANGE, it causes Prostrate Cancer and many others, all who served in DMZ 68 to 69 should be checked with VA. Most will tell you if not in Nam you don't qualify. Bull!!!! If I could be of help let me know.

I served in Charlie Co, 1/503rd INF (AASLT) while it was assigned to the 2nd brigade of the 2ID. I was with them on our historic deployment from South Korea to the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. We deployed with other highly decorated units in our brigade such as the 1-506 INF(AASLT), 1/9 INF, and 2/17th FA. Upon our redeployment stateside, our unit was re designated, and our colors were cased and sent to the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Italy, as the 1/503rd PIR. I was awarded the CIB, and Purple Heart for actions in Ar Ramadi, and I will always wear the 503rd Regimental crest and keep that as my regimental affiliation. I am proud to have served in such a unit with such distinction and honor, and hope to be assigned to them again in the future. C6R Out

I served in the ROK and did DMZ missions in A Co 1/23 Infantry in 1986, in A Co 1/503 Infantry in 1987 and B Co 1/503 Infantry and one or two patrols with the Scout Platoon 1/503 Infantry in 1991. If I recall, the 1/503 did the last complete Battalion sized DMZ mission of US troops in the winter-spring of 1991. We were relieved by 5/20 Infantry in about April 1991 and they did a smaller Company sized mission that year and soon after ROKA took it all over except JSA.
Great to see the site. Would like to know if photos could be submitted?

Served with Bravo Troop, 4/7th Cavalry, at Camp Jeb Stuart, Feb 1969- May 1970. I was SFC E-7, assigned as Platoon Leader 1st Platoon. Troop Commander was CPT Estrada. First Sergeant was Gilmore. Participated in numerous ambush patrols, SCOSI patrols, Rat patrols and many mounted and dismounted Search and Destroy missions inside the DMZ. Found out years later that I was exposed to Agent Orange (that would be double-dipping because I had already been exposed in Vietnam)and that I probably qualified for second award of Combat Infantry Badge. All I can say is--DILLIGAF?. God Bless Our Troops.

I served with 2nd plt JSA 1982-1983, we had many incidents during that year. We ran combat patrols just south of the JSA, and I was a part of 3 different firefights with the KPA just south, of the bridge of no return,we never found bodies, just lots of blood, also we were ambushed by the ROK army I believe Jan, or Feb of 1983. One of our Katusa's LIM C.H. was killed that night,also I was one of the last americans to ever see Joseph White, before being stuffed into an KPA bunker, just north of Oulette, I was working UNCJSA Tower when I saw him, just in front of KPA 1. I have applied for my Korea Defense Service Ribbon, to include an application for a CIB. I dont think any of this is recorded, I can't find any records of anything I expierienced over there, why is this, why does the U.S try to hide everything tregarding DMZ incidents, we all need to awarded, and not just forgotten for what we went through. Can anyone hepl me, I know the Army Review Board will not believe me, or possibly give me a hard time, about my applications, it makes me very mad, please someone back me up, or help me.

Served at Camp Liberty Bell (10 months) and Camp Casey (2 months.) Moved From Liberty Bell to Camp Casey after being replaced at Liberty Bell by a COHORT unit from Hawaii, I think. 1989-1990. I remember many things like giving blood one day, and then going on pass and drinking too much with a guy named Fobear, racing to get back across the bridge before it closed, and having to be held up in morning formation a short time later. I know I am probably spelling Fobear incorrectly. I remember a guy that we simply called "Tall Guy." I remember the patrols, the "Mickey Mouse" boots, the guard posts, and freezing my ---off. Does anybody else remember any of this, or was I dreaming. Corporal Robert T. (Bobby) Gray.

Don,
Thank-you for continuing to honor the memory of my child hood friend Kenny Leonard. I had a good visit with his brother Don last year. We caught up on old times and people we knew. I shared your website with neighbors of Ken's and mine. They were pleased with the pics and your words. I always wonder what kind of man Ken would have been today. I also wondered if the agony of the war would have affected him like the rest of us. Thanks again, and stay in touch.

UNIT ASSIGNED: 2/2nd Engineers
TIME SERVED: 1966-1970


PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU WERE IN 2nd DIVISION FROM 1967 TO 1970

Hello - I was CO of E Co. Float Bridge of the 2d Engineer Battalion from about July 1969 to December 1969. Prior to that I was at Camp Peterson first as Platoon Leader of the Heavy Junk Platoon then as Bn. Maint. Officer. I was at the Bridge of No Return on the morning the Pueblo Crew was released with a road grader crew to clear snow for the crew to be transported in case the chopers couldn't fly. I worked with the operators of heavy equipment - dozers, rome plows and graders along the fence and clearing brush above the fence. I was also I.L.D. Investigating Officer for two or three of the land mind incidents when 2d Engineer personnel were injured when clearing M-14 mines. I was assigned shortly after my arrival in Korea to the investigation team for the Guard Tower collapse that killed one Infantry Soldier and injured two others - the tower had been built by A Company Engineers.

I recieved my Imjin Scout Certificate and Patch in the second month I was in country. We built the floating bridge and causeway at the Spoonbill and did the blasting for rock for the islands and causeway on the north side of the river. In about August of 1969 we were assigned the two river patrol boats and I was then designated as Commander of the Imjin River Police - fishing boat papers inspection and anti-infiltration patrol.

I would like very much to hear from anyone thet was in my Unit or that I worked with above the river. Also, if anyone has any pictures of 2d Engineer Vehicles or Equipment working at the Guard Posts or along the fence, I would appreciate your posting them. All of my photos were destroyed in a storage space flood and I need to prove we (2d Engineer Bn) were working in and around the DMZ during 1967 - 1969. Finally, if any members of the 2d Engineer Bn from 1967 to 1969 have successfully processed a claim with VA for Agent Orange illness I would really appreciate hearing from you.

For the past several months I have been working with several other members of the 2nd Engineer Bn and the Widow and son of another from our Bn. who passed away in 1995. I know there are others who also suffer from the effects of Agent Orange used in Korea. These guys need your help!! If you served in the 2nd Engineer Bn. or served in a unit that worked regularly with the 2nd Engineers, please contact me. We need statements, photos and any other information you can offer about 2nd Engineer work and activities along the barrier fence and in the DMZ - we built the roads, bridges, Fence, towers and Guard Post Bunkers, ran the Rome Plows and cleared the old minefields. But Guess What - VA says DOD said we weren't there. Please give these guys any help you can.

Thanks - Phil Steward, Former CAPT.,EN, Commanding

1968 through to 1969 , duty on the DMZ from walking patrols north of the fence line in " no man's land " standing guard on the fence line, shaking the chain link fence every hour making sure the chain link fence was not cut at certain places where the infiltrators would replace it back in position , that was the reason why we had to shake the fence " if you stood duty on the fence line you had to shake the fence " my early duty on the fence line in 1968 in our sector there was only three strands of concertina wire on the ground the chain link fence was not up yet early within a year the chain link fence went up and the 3 strands of concertina wire was place on top of the fence. The best experience I had on the fence line when we did the " Mad Minute Explosions " north of the fence line inside " No man's land", Mad Minute was awsome.

August 1968 through to August 1969 anyone who was assigned to 1st Bn 31st Infantry 7th Infantry Division, Camp Hovey, Korea please email me . My tour of duty with the 1st Bn 31st Infantry was a very interesting and very challenging experience , my memories of knowing a KATSUA soldier from whom I learned a lot about the Korean custom and its culture can never be seperated from my book of experinces in Korea, as far as the weather well! it was my first encounter with the snow itself, that KATSUA's soldier name was LEE B.S so anyone who served with the 7th Infantry Division stationed at Camp Hovey, Korea with the Village of Tokori at its back gate please email me, I really want to hear from soldiers at that time period. Our DMZ missions was on GP Hendricks and GP Oullette and the fence line, I remember my first duty on the fence line the standing fence was not up yet at our sector there was only three strands of Razor sharp Concertina wires the standing chain link fence went up before the years end at our sector which we had to shake the fence every hour to insure any part of the chain link fence was not cut and placed back for the infiltrators' entry or re-entery back to the north or south , once the chain link fence went up the three strands of Concertina was positioned on top of the chain link fence , we did patrols in the DMZ or in no mans' land with live ammo, we also required to go through the Imjin Scout Academy prior to and after a DMZ duty cycle.

Hi Larry,
This is Don Lopez here, webmaster of the Imjin Scout website.
You and I had some overlap in 2/9th as I arrived in April '69 and was with Alpha company from April until December '69. Long story but I managed to get a transfer out of the 2ID to Seoul where I worked for AFKN. Just wanted to say hello and remind you that there is a 2/9th yearbook on the site from the '69 time frame, probably done right before you got there. You might recognize some of the guys though.

Ed, you are sure right about the winter of ’69 being cold. I do not think I have ever been so cold in my life.

I have been back to Korea several times since the 1990’s. The smell is gone (all who served during our years know what I mean). In the 1990’s my family visited the 2/9 when it was located where 2d I.D HQ used to be in 1969-70. I forget the name of the Camp. What a wonderful bunch of soldiers. The Bn. C.O. gave my son and me a commander’s coin. I am very grateful for his kindness. Captain Kirk Day gave my wife, kids and me a tour of the 2/9. Captain Day was wonderful host.

A few days later we went on a tour to JSA. It was hard to stand two feet from a N.K. in the U.N. huts and then walk across the MDL into N.K. JSA is sure different then it was in 69-70. We were only allowed to go to the big sign over the dirt road that led into the JSA when I was in. Now it is a paved highway. I actually had a hard time figuring out where I was relative to where the 2/9 had been located in 69-70. We visited one of the N.K tunnels that we had heard so much about in 69 but that no one could “prove”.

Finally, I went to Vietnam and my younger brother Joel arrived at the 1/9. Talk about ironic. This is a wonderful web site that Don and company have put together. As time goes on maybe I can send some photos, copies of several leaflets I kept etc. Manchu Sir. John France

I served with a great bunch of men in HHC 2/9 from Sept 69-May 1970. In was in the BN motorpool and was a Spec 5 in the track section. I ran a M578. I also attedned ACTA in March 1970. Graduation consisted of a DMZ patrol. I recall there were mines everwhere. During the patrol it was extremely quiet. As we were moving, we all heard a loud click. We froze. Our LT had stepped on an anti tank mine. An ACTA E-6 had us go into a perimeter, safely way from the LT. The E-6 then plied rocks on the mine until it was heavy enough for the LT to move off it. I still have great respect for ACTA. Keep Up The Fire. John France

Hi Don,
Greetings from New York. I wanted to thank you for making it possible for me to close a chapter in my life. I am sending you a picture of my cousin Victor Manuel Vega who I was able to find through links on your web site. Victor is a Korean war vet,who was killed in action in North Korea on December 17,1950, at the age of twenty. Here is a picture of Victor:



Not only did I find out that my time on the DMZ in 1966-67 meant something to this country,but I was able to locate my cousin's information with the account of his last days defending our country. I was finally able to put a face on someone who I had not seen since I was three and a half years old. As I told you in my first e-mail I was a member of the Imjin Scouts,and I attended ACTA, in the summer of 1967. I hope to make contact with some of the people I served with through your site.

Thanks again and God Bless

Hi Don, I'm a Donut Dollie who served in Vietnam, 7/67 - 8/68. I've learned from a DD who was in Korea that the 'Korea-A Tour of Duty' website included pictures of her and other DDs including Wendy Wendler from Texas. I met Wendy at the Agent Orange hearings in Houston, TX in the early 80s when the AO had already changed her significantly. I'd love to see pictures of her before AO changed her life forever. I can't find the 'Tour of Duty' website. Do you happen to know if the content is still on the web somewhere? Welcome Home! Thanks, Kammy McCleery, Lexington, KY

My first tour at Warrior Base included extended periods of time at Guardpost Oulette, Using night vision devices to observe the NKPA, recording the flag raising at Propoganda village, We had the night shift every night while the daytime troops (Charlie Company) were not exactly considerate of our situation and would wake us up for drills or floor mopping (army sux sometimes) I remember with special disdain the cook that would refuse to leave us any food to eat at night we were gnawing on stale bread like some whorehouse rat just to keep our stomachs from growling . COOKIE-hope you are uncomfortable, broke and hungry). Second tour at Warrior base I was the Arms room guy, keeping track of weapons from Echo and other companies, My favorites we the Romanian AK-47's we had for training and when the Engineers dropped off some Recoiless Rifles (just wish I had some rounds) Battalion Commanders were LTC Stack the LTC White, both hard assed guys (I was glad they were on OUR side). I remember when some engineers tied themselves together and tried to ford a swollen river, they were lost in the current. Also I remember a guard shack near Sonjuri that got BLOWN up by a misguided 155 Round from Camp Pelham (Beginners Luck?) Good time in Bong il chon were easy to be had and the KATUSA club had tasty items (and good food) the EM club was a little bit understaffed or funded, -who would want to go there, the atmosphere sucked but some good sippin' whiskey could be had. One of the best things about Camp Howze was the barber shop, the famous massage after the haircut would sometimes put me to sleep. I remember the hills of Camp Howze, the fun time in the winter watching trucks slide uncontrolled down the ice coated roads, the brushes with frostbite, the wonderful smell of the summer rice paddies, OB and CROWN. Yakimandu, Bulgoki, Ramen ETC ETC. Korean Food is great, The Korean people are one tough bunch of folks, after all that they have gone through, (The Jap occupation, Korean War etc.) they are still on their feet and ready to take on anybody, gotta give them points for backbone and spirit. I value my time in the ROK and I am glad I was at a time of my life that I could enjoy it and appreciate it. It made me a better human.

Hi All, I was just web surfing and found this site. I haven't heard the term Imjun Scout for about 40 yrs. I was with A Co. 3/32 Inf 7th Inf Division. We spent about 3-4 months in the land of no return, DMZ. If I recall it was across the Libby Bridge. I was a Squad Leader (E-5), and I remember those cold nights on Ambush Patrol. I sure would like to get hold of one of the Imjin Scout patches, if anyone knows how I could get one. After Korea I spent about 18 Months at Ft. Ord, then I went to Viet Nam to serve with the Wolfhounds 1st Platoon B Co. 2/27 Inf. 25 Inf Div. as a Platoon Sgt. Hope I hear from some of you at my e-mail address.

Hello fellow DMZ vets. My name is Dale Patton and I have posted on the site before. I am again asking that DMZ Vets contact Lynitta Brown (lynitta@koreanwar-educator.org) with your DMZ stories. She is actively seeking DMZ vets to tell their stories (combat or non-combat). Our stories need to be told of our contribution to the Korea that stands today. We picked up where the 1950-53 vets left off. Check out the site and tell your story...Thanks, Dale

I served in Korea from July 1967 until March 1969, a total of 20 months and 20 days. As a 2LT with Co. A, 1/31 Inf., 7th ID I was awarded the Imjin Scouts insignia in August of 1967 for "Commendable participation in operational missions along the DMZ." I think we were the first unit of the 7th ID to be operational in the DMZ since the Korean War. We were also awarded the 7th ID's Order of the Bayonet.

Thanks for the site. It certainly brings back memories!

A very special thank you for this site and a special thanks to every veteran that served in the LAND OF THE MORNING CALM
i found this site by accident and hope that this entry will find a veteran thats willing to help in my fight with the veterans administration over a ptsd claim.
everyone on this site knows what was going on in this time frame, yes its been a long time, but it is still there.
i was in s.korea in 1978-79 in camp pelham under captain grabowski and later captain arnet gray, in the 2nd inf div. 2/17th fa bravo battery. i was the c.o driver and c.b.r ncoic as well as an artillery crewman (13b10-20)our unit rotated back and forth into the only active live firing base in korea ( 4papa1)
the V.A states i must document my stressors for my ptsd claim and they know its hard enough to remember 30 years ago but they do know that there are congressional reports of undocumented incidences on the dmz since 1953 to present. alot of my stressors are undocumented such as watching a young female being beaten to death, two others raped and murdered by infiltrators around mun-san, the presence of tunnel 3, and patrolling 4papa1 WITHOUT LIVE AMMO.
i have tried the joint services, nara, nat. personnel and every possible site to gather my old units fire missions, campaignes, duty roasters, staff reports, after action reports, lesson learned reports without any luck.V.A. tells me that if i can get statements from other veterans that recalls these stressors or events and their stories of hostile events such as infiltrators on the dmz, 4papa1, the incident when the president was murdered when marshall law was enplaced, the general hell we had to endure.
i served my country when asked and was proud of it, i was a tool that when used up the goverment through away as in all the veterans in the serve. this i find sickening. as roosevelt said "anyone thats good enough to sheed blood for this country is good enough to recieve whats promised for them" the V.A. and DOD sends troops into hot lz without live ammo. their sacrifices are allowed to prevent an incident. i say know one should be sacrificed for doing what most dont think of or have the guts to do. we were sent to a place which is still active to serve and we did. the VA does not allow for the statement from the veteran as evidence of the stressor and this is promised and never given
in short, everyone that reads this has an obligation to help every veteran that asks for help. the simpliest letter or email could be enough to assist in there claim.anyone that was in s.korea t this time weather you know me or not can help. my email is open and will not change. please help me with the documentation of your events related to my claim. for more details, please contact me and we'll talk. this is my last chance to win my claim and try to live a more normal life.

thank you

I was in the 2/23d Inf the 1/17th inf the 1/9th Inf and the 1/503rd Inf during my 3 tours of Korea. To my Manchu buddy's remember the belt buckle? While I was on Staff Duty NCO duty in 1974 I found an old order that revoked the wear of the manchu belt buckle...it was dated back in the 50's. I showed it to the Battalion XO and he just said no one needs to know this and that was last anyone saw of that order. Later when I was in the 5th Special Forces group we had the "secret society of the ninth infantry" and we all wore our manchu belt buckles under our jungle fatigues and us brother manchus used to "flash" each other. the Battalion Sergeant Major caught us once...he told me captain you are setting a bad example for the men.....i still wore just never let the CSM see it again.

Don,
Ever since I entered my email address on this site I've been getting a ton of "PHISHING" emails. I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the same thing?
I can only suggest changing the email addresses to read as I have entered mine: rb4568wATyahoo.com replacing "@" with "AT" keeps PHISHERS from copy and pasting email addresses.
Unless of course you like getting email from Nigeria asking for bank account information. Happy Easter to all.

UNIT ASSIGNED: Joint Security Area, Panmunjom (JSA)
TIME SERVED: 1981-1985


My name is Melvin J. Canty (New Orleans, La). I served as an Infantryman (DMZ Policeman) at Camp KittyHawk, DMZ, United Nations Command, Joint Security Area (JSA), Joint Security Force Company (JSF Co.), 1st and 3rd Platoons (Dec 1983-Dec 1984).

The "fire fight" in Nov 1984 was the direct result of a Russian defector's (tall red head male with several rolls of film)successful crossing of the MDL while on a tour of the Peace Village, Panmunjom.

KPA immediately fired on the Russian resulting the "fire fight."

The Officers assigned to the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC) Camps at Pammunjom (Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, and the Czechs.) helped bring about a "cease fire."

One GI was wounded and one KATUSA was KIA.

Unknown KPA after action.

4th Platoon, JSF Co. participated in the "fire fight" because they had the "Peace Village" mission at the time. 2nd Platoon, JSF Co. was on the QRF mission and posted at the QRF site in the DMZ, one click south of Pammunjom.

The entire DMZ was on alert to include 4PAPA1 (Firebase).

A Memorial service was held for the KATUSA several days later. I was "short" and was on my way to the 1st Calvary DIV, 2/7 CAV (GARY OWEN), then onto 2/5 CAV (Black Knights).

I looked at the units you listed as having served as Imjin Scouts on the DMZ. The unit I served in was not listed. I was in Alpha Company 1st Batallion, Ninth Infantry from 1978-1979 under Captain Boyd D Parsons, and First Sergeant Domingo Lozano. I was stationed at Camp Liberty Bell as a member of Second Platoon and later as the Unit Armorer. We had a ROK Ranger base right outside the back gate of Camp Liberty Bell. I did my time at Camp Alouette and an Joliet, also known as 554 and 553. In Alpha Company, we got up at early every morning and ran PT through 4 Papa 1 and sometimes down to Camp Greaves and back. It kicked my ass, but if I fell out, I knew Lozano would be there and I did not fall out. Duty was tough and stressful. I guarded that AHA at Liberty Bell so many times I cannot count them. I went on LPOPs, Day Sweeps and Night Sweeps. One time our LT even ran us into a mine field. Pulling police call on our fence line I almost stepped on a toe popper one day. I was an 18 year old private when in March or April of 1978 we walked across Freedom bridge on our way to Team Spirit 78. My M60 tripod strapped across the top of my ruck is the only thing that saved me from going into the Imjin until my platoon members got there. The bridge was icy as hell and not easily traversed in combat boots. I am going on 47 now and I remember my time with the Manchus vividly. I am most proud of that service.

Keep Up the Fire!!

Thank you for taking me back on this Imjin journey, that I myself began to think was only a dream. I was one of few men from my Company sent to the Imjin Scout school, back in the summer of 1967, as part of my tour in Korea 1966 - 1967. It seems like so very long ago, but when I started to relive this journey through this web site, it was just yesterday. All these years, I did not talk about my experiences on the DMZ because I did not think any one would care, or even believe me. I have kept these memories locked up and buried inside of me, sometimes thinking it was all a dream. Please know how much this work of yours means to me, and that I will be on line when ever I can for updates on the Imjin Scouts, and related D M Z issues.
Thank you and God Bless,

Hello all,

I was glad to learn that there was a website for ImjinScouts. I served with Dco 1/31st (M) Infantry from Nov 85-Nov86. I too was involved in the numerous patrols on the "Z". I am just learning from this Guestbook that Camp Howze has been closed. That weighs heavy on my heart. Like many of you, I left my blood, sweat, tears, and lets not forget innocence in the Land of the Morning Calm. Over the past twenty plus years, I find myself often reflecting back to the days in Korea and realize now how much of an impact it has had on my life. I made alot of friends over there. Though I have not seen or heard from any of them since 1986, I know should I see or speak to them again it will be as if I had seen them yesterday. They will always be my brothers. As the muscle aches and pains of age creep on me, I think about the young 18 year old soldier who climbed and humped the terrain so many moons ago. Who would have ever thought that I would miss the "slicky Boys"? I remember the late night ramien parties with the KATUSAS. Who can ever forget them. They took hell didnt they? I loved my time there and I love all of you--GOD BLESS!

I know this is a long shot, but I was trying to find any help I can. I met a guy at Fort Knox in 2002. His name was Travis, I can't remember the last name, and I know he was originally from Vermont. He was attending Master Gunner training and left in December 2002 and said he was going to Germany for two years. I have wanted to contact him to see how he was because I have been thinking about him a lot. My name is Stephanie.

Hello - I was CO of E Co. Float Bridge of the 2d Engineer Battalion from about July 1969 to December 1969. Prior to that I was at Camp Peterson first as Platoon Leader of the Heavy Junk Platoon then as Bn. Maint. Officer. I was at the Bridge of No Return on the morning the Pueblo Crew was released with a road grader crew to clear snow for the crew to be transported in case the chopers couldn't fly. I worked with the operators of heavy equipment - dozers, rome plows and graders along the fence and clearing brush above the fence. I was also I.L.D. Investigating Officer for two or three of the land mind incidents when 2d Engineer personnel were injured when clearing M-14 mines. I was assigned shortly after my arrival in Korea to the investigation team for the Guard Tower collapse that killed one Infantry Soldier and injured two others - the tower had been built by A Company Engineers.

I recieved my Imjin Scout Certificate and Patch in the second month I was in country. We built the floating bridge and causeway at the Spoonbill and did the blasting for rock for the islands and causeway on the north side of the river. In about August of 1969 we were assigned the two river patrol boats and I was then designated as Commander of the Imjin River Police - fishing boat papers inspection and anti-infiltration patrol.

I would like very much to hear from anyone thet was in my Unit or that I worked with above the river. Also, if anyone has any pictures of 2d Engineer Vehicles or Equipment working at the Guard Posts or along the fence, I would appreciate your posting them. All of my photos were destroyed in a storage space flood and I need to prove we (2d Engineer Bn) were working in and around the DMZ during 1967 - 1969. Finally, if any members of the 2d Engineer Bn from 1967 to 1969 have successfully processed a claim with VA for Agent Orange illness I would really appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks - Phil Steward, (CAPT.,EN, Commanding)

Really enjoyed the site! I had the honor to serve as a medic out of Camp Garry Owen from 1987-1988. Participated in many recon missions in the DMZ while in Korea and am proud to have earned my Imjin Scout Patch. Information about the current status of Camp Garry Owen has been hard for me to find. From what I understand, the camp was closed and moved to Camp Red Cloud(?). Some twenty years after leaving Korea I still have fond memories of the men I served with and the times we had. Thanks for keeping a site like this open for all of the men and women who, like me, did our time, stood the line and helped protect our country. Thanks again and take care.

Hi I served at MSA#20. It was a maximum security area near Pobwoni. I became an Imjin Scout in January of 1969. I wish you would put MSA#20 as a place served. We had quite a few Imjin scouts there. I was in charge of night partols around our compound making sure there were no enemy infiltrations. I sure was cold the winter on 68/69. I think thast is why I live in Florida were it is nicwe and warm. I sure would like to heasr from sopme guys who served in my unit.

Nice site ... brought back some great memories! I was with C Co. 1/9 from 1986 to 1987 and was bearing the company colors when they were retired in favor of C Co. 1/506. The first 3/4 of my tour I lived in a collapsing mold-covered water-filled ammo bunker at Firing Point 1, North of Camp Greaves and would love to find a picture of that old tomb. I got my Imjin Scout Badge for the winter patrol that year from Dec 86 to Feb 87 and froze my ___ off at night rolling out claymores and lying in the snow.

I would love to see some pics from that era ...

Sincerely,

SP4 Patrick W. Fletcher

The damned NKs kept me from sleeping most of the time and little known back here in the states of an incursion in April of 1980 , as well as a few trades of fire while on the DMZ. Thought the war was over until I got there in 1980 and was told we were living within artillery range at Camp Hovey and about 30 seconds flight time from the North. I'm pround that I served but am having a hard time proving what it was like to the VA. I am now disabled and still suffer from PTSD from when I was on the Z. Need help to prouve my case. Recieved the Imjin Scout award but was not listed in my 201 file . Still have the shield on my dress greens from when I was in the service.

The hope is to have the plaque inplace by 2008. To do so it must be approved by Congress. So we all need to contact our Congressman. The author and designer of the plaque is Mark (DMZ VET) and he can be reached at mzh@columbus.rr.com. Please contact him and offer your support.

It's amazing how so few people know what went on over there and they are almost shocked when I tell them I drew hostil fire pay my whole tour.

I was assigned to Charlie Company, 2nd Engineer Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division in Sept 69. I don't recall the name of the camp or if it had one but I do remember being near Munsan and Freedom Bridge was clearly visible from our helipad. Just down the road from us was an Infantry compound with the PX, movie and medical services. Don't recall the name of that camp either. We worked every day in the Zone building bunkers and OP's for the infantry. We had to be escorted through the Zone to our work site by infantry who had M-60's mounted on jeeps. I remember they reminded me of "The Rat Patrol" on TV. One of our responsibilities was to blow Freedom Bridge if the Commies came down. We had to inspect the explosives packed on the bridge every month if I remember correctly.

I can remember everyday thinking how glad I'd be to rotate back to the states. But now, I remember that 13 month period with great fondness even though it was the coldest place I'd ever been to.

Anyone know if the 2nd Engineers have a web site? I can't find it so I'm guessing they don't. May have been disbanded like many units.

KDSM is yours you just have to apply for it. Unless you're still on active duty then just go to personnel. Go to the KDVAmerica.org web site. Go to veterans Support link it will tell you what to do.

It's always good to find a site that has info concerning those of us who spent time in Korea. I was stationed at Camp McIntyre with the HQ Battalion 1/17th Arty assigned to the MSA on the compound. I saw someone make mention of being assigned to MSA #20 near Pobwon-ni. This might be the same MSA...I know that camp is no longer in existence, but the "special" projectiles still remain. I was in country from Oct. 1963 to Dec. 1964, and was a sentry dog handler at the MSA. If anyone has any pics or info regarding Camp McIntyre feel free to contact me. Although it seems like another lifetime ago, we who served there won't forget it....good or bad.

We had guard towers and guard dogs also. I was medivaced out in Oct 1969 and I was told the whole compound was moved overnight to an area in the south. I would like to talk to anyone who was at MSA#20. We were attached to an artilery unit. I think it was 1/12. That is were we transported 3x a day for meals.

I served as a TAC NCO as well as several other intructional positions. there is a copy of the orders on the slide show under "New Additions" but for anyone doing a name search it would be a needle in a haystack to find it. Here are the names on the same set of orders dated 25 February 1966: SSG Tony Smith SSG Victor Masser SGT Robert Keprta (me) SGT Booker Poole SSG James Johnson and SGT Jack Ross. I would be interested in hearing from any of these guys as well as anyone else who may have known me back then whether you were a student in my platoon or staff/cadre at ACTA. Also if anyone has any contact information on SSG George Vessel who was on the original staff. Second to None bk

Some real good pictures been added to New Additions and the way they are presented is too cool to. Good Job Taken them and posting them ! I do kinda have a question for the Imjin Scouts before me, My first 3 days as a Bearcat 1st/31st, Charlie Company 3rd Platoon, my Platoon I was assigned to was just finishing up their 2 week cycle on Ouellette so after I was sent to put my gear in the barracks, meet our House dude and then my Platoon Sargent SFC Hendricks came back to the Company area, picked my and one other ass up and took our asses out to Ouellette, got a new perspective on what the world was going on and the Mildew in our quarters there sucked so bad I kinda hated it. They had a plaque there said it was built in 71, I was in Ouellette in November 75 3 days, only other times we patrolled around it through Taesongdong ! Who built that place, 2nd/9th ? By the time I got there it was all cool, sandbags and everything but all the mildew, I thought that shit was gonna kill us ! Keep up the Fire ! Pro Patria doughboy

Got to shake some of the cobwebs from our memories. I was elected 1st Vice President of the 9th Inf Reg The Manchu association for the next 2 years. I encourage to join the 2nd Indianhead Associationa and the Manchu Association and get involed. We need to get our era group involved because of the WWII and Korean vets slowly departing us. I think there were 5 or 6 of us in attendance from our era. Contact me and I can get you a application for both.

Don,

I am throughly enjoying time to explore the site. Sorry I am not more computer literate, but have a question on postings.

I still have a copy of my orders in Feb 1966 assigning me to ACTA as an instructor (along with 5 or 6 others). If I scan the document and post it on this site, is there a possibility that someone else can copy it and change/add to it? I know there is a problem with people stealing pictures on the net and on ebay, would not want to post something that would serve as a template for someone to alter and falsely claim they were assigned to ACTA staff/cadre. Can you clarify this issue for me? thanxz, (formerly SSG Keprta) Bob

Attention DMZ Vets (Imjin Scouts) Check out the KOREAN WAR EDUCATOR (memoirs) web site. The administrator (Lynnette Brown) is seeking DMZ vets to tell their stories about their time on the "Z" (combat non-combat). We all have our stories about our time ON and IN the "Z". It seems that the DMZ vet is the "Forgotten" of the "Forgotten". We need to get our stories out there and this site is great. At this point I think there are only 2 DMZ stories in the Memoirs section. If you contact Lynette she will do an online interview etc...Tell your story..it is a the right thing to do...Dale Patton

What a joy and jolt to the memory bank to find this site! Can't remember exactly what class I was in, it was a very early one, then was assigned as Cadre and TAC NCO. Will have to dig out my old certificate to see when it was signed. Trying to locate an old comrade who served there, name was SSG Vessels or Wessels, can't remember which (recent stroke causing me problems). If anyone remembers whether it was Vessels or Wessels I would appreciate the info. Will post some photos as soon as I get them converted from slides to film. Any ACTA personnel remember the cinder blocks we got on the Korean market for a building project at Sitman..we used them for karate practice..have pics of some of us smashing 3 at a time with bare fists! (They were mostly sand with some coloring and enough cement to hold their shape until delivered!) later, (at that time) SSG Keprta

Lee N Franks was the First Sergeant, and I 2d Lt John Zornig was the one of the officers. Was back in '89 and surprised to find 2 lanes of paved road from Munsan to the ImJin Bridge. Camp McKenzie (HQ and HQ)is gone and the old J.E.B. Stuart was replaced by brick buildings and the ROK Army. Luck them, no quonset huts and diesel stoves with a ration of fuel that would never make it through the night. What a time to remember. Tom Flaherty

What America needs to say :
I wish the leaders of our country would take a stand likeAustralia .
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to
get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head
off potential terror attacks.
A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to
Australia at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his
ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown.
Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some
radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept
that Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament.
"If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or
a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," he said on national
television.
"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing
people in Australia , one the Australian law and another the Islamic law,
that is false. If you can't agree with Parliamentary law, independent
courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to
go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better
option," Costello said.
Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said
those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other
country.
Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did
not want to accept local values should "clear off". "Basically, people
who don't want to be Australians, and they don't want to live by Australian
values and understand them, well then they can basically clear off," he said
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying
he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.
AMERICA , CANADA and U.K. ARE YOU LISTENING?
Quote: "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It I am
tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual
or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced
a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians."
However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the "politically
correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism
was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge
against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia .
However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our
country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of
Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our
sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we have our own
culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.
This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and
victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak
mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian,
or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our
society, learn the language!
Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing,
political push but a fact because Christian men and women, on Christian
principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is
certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God
offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your
new home, because God is part of our culture.
We will accept your beliefs and will not question why, all we ask is that
you accept ours and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.
If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go", then you
should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really
don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means keep your
culture but do not force it on others.
This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you
every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining,
whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or
Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great
Australian freedom, "THE RIGHT TO LEAVE".
If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You
asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted."
Pretty easy really, when you think about it. I figure if we all keep
passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also, sooner or later get
back to the complainers, let?s all try, please."
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE, PERHAPS WE CAN CREATE A GROUND SWELL AND
SEND OUR POLITICIANS THE MESSAGE THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF US BELIEVE AS THE
AUSSIES DO.........

Hello,
When I sent my first post I did not input dates on the "When did you serve" tap so mine came up "Did not Serve". Since finding this site I pulled out some of my momentos from the time I was there. I have a few pictures, my DMZ pass, DMZ MP Brassard, my Bn Yearbook and a few other Items.

Again I did not recieve my Imjin Scout Certificate. I did a PCS back to Fort Benning, Ga. While my Bn was still doing the DMZ Mission. So I guessed I missed it. I did get a Army Achievement Medal for my tour. It was hand carried to me months later, by a friend in my platoon who ended up at Benning with me.

If anyone would be so kind as to let me know how I might be able to get a certificate please let me know.

What a great bunch of guys, We did some of the wildest things I would ever do in my life. Hutton,Peto,Carter,Cross,Dehl,Chauput. We were all P1-P3's togather. Sepetember allways makes me think of my time there, we all had calanders hanging on our lockers with our departure date on the freedom bird on it. Sept. 22nd was the day I dreamed of for a year. I hope all of my brothers are alive and healthy. If anyone sees this drop me line I would love to catch up.

TIME SERVED: DID NOT SERVE


Hello,
South Korea was my first Duty Station. I was in CS Co. 2/503RD, Camp Hovey. I was a 11H then. Apr 88 thru Apr 89.When we occupied Warrior base. We did "MACE"(mobile acquisition counter-penatration element) patrols on the DMZ at night using our tow thermal sight mounted on our HUMVEE's. All our patrols were at night.

However I did not recieve my Imjin Scout Certificate I did well over 25 patrols on the DMZ plus some nights in the Guard Posts. I did recieve a Army Achievement Medal for my Korea Tour and it lists my DMZ patrols in the citation.

Is there anyway I might be able to get a certificate? Please let know.

UNIT ASSIGNED: 2/9th Infantry
TIME SERVED: 1996-PRESENT


Hello, I never had the pleasure to wear the Imjin patch. However, I was at Warrior Base for a couple of months in the summer of 1997. I was with C co. "Killers" 2/9th Inf. and we patrolled along the DMZ but not on because it was an act of war to take our Bradley's onto the DMZ. July 8,1997 was when Kim il Jung, if that is spelled right, was suppose to take complete control of North Korea, this was the third anniversary of his fathers death. He claimed he was going to bury his father's dead body in Seoul on that day. I along with C co. happened to be in his way. The North Koreans actually sent patrols into the DMZ and we were put on high alert but thank God they never crossed over. It was an interesting few days to say the least. I was also at Camp Casey when that North Korean sub was grounded on the beach in September of 1996 that made for an interesting couple of months. I cannot remember but I think the North Koreans killed twelve civilians and ten or fifteen ROK soldiers before they were eventually tracked down and killed. Well, you have a great site and "Keep Up the Fire" of the Manchu Warriors. Thanks John

To my surprise and delight, this website has brought back long ago lost memories. I attended ACTA during the first part of 1968 and graduated second in my class (Feb). This accomplishment earned me an immediate pay grade raise, which was the practice of our then Battalion Commander. The great part of it was that I began the course as a PFC, received my Spec 4, for time in grade, midway through the training and graduated as a hard rock E-5. All to the dismay of my Top, who had sent me there as punishment for mouthing off to him. All Top could do was smile and shake my hand. Thanks for the memories and KEEP UP THE FIRE with this site.

I'll never forget 2 things - the sickly sweet smell of the mix of kimchi, charcoal smoke human shit and the "circus music" from Joe Chink's speakers on a -20 degree night.

Hello Imjin Scouts,
Due to the ever increasing number of SPAM postings to the www.imjinscout.com Guestbook, postings will now be screened before being posted to the Guestbook. The system is set up so I receive an email whenever a posting occurs and I will normally be able to screen and release the posting to Guestbook within a couple of hours. It is a shame that we have so many ignorant idiots misbehaving on the Internet that make this change necessary. To the many regular readers of the Guestbook, I thank you for your heads-up regarding SPAM and any other problems that you may notice on the site. God bless the forward deployed troops and,

No reason to be chagrined... Your unit, the 1/38th Infantry is recognized in the list of units in the Guestbook pulldown menu. As far as the DMZ Units section of the site, I add units when I receive material that describes the history of the unit. Right now I do not have anything on the 1/38th. If you have historical information pertaining to the 1/38th, please forward it to me and I will be happy to add the 1/38th to the "DMZ Units" page.

I was with A company 3/23rd, 2nd ID from 1965 to 1966. When I first arrived I was in the 1st Calvary. In 1965 we were taken over by the 2nd infantry and the 3/23rd moved to the north side of the Imjin. Headquarters and B and C companies were at one camp but A company was located in a smaller compound by itself. I think HHC was at Camp Dodge but I don't remember the name of the camp where A company was located. I've seen photos of Camp Wentzel and it looks like the camp where we, A company was. Does anyone know anything about this? In the photo of Camp Wentzel, it says that A company 1/9 was at Wentzel. I think the photo was taken in 1969 so it may be that they replaced A 3/23rd. I wish I knew. I was FDC for the mortar squad in the weapons platoon. Later, I was allowed to work at my true MOS which was a combat medic. Thanks Ralph Alves

I was chagrined to see that your list of units on the DMZ in 1967-68 left out 1/38th. Our area spanned JSA,-- C company to the West, A company to the East, and B company's sector was more or less centered on JSA. I think that we had Barbara, but memory is faint. I was in HQ company and C company, mid-Nov. '67 to mid-Dec. '68. I was in the ACTA class that finished about Christmas 1967.

Terrific site found it while trolling the web for refs to E Btry 25th FA (Tgt Acq), "Wolf Pack, sir!" We were stationed at Camp Stanley IVO Oi Jeong Bu, down the road from CRC. I was the quiet, goofy guy with big glasses, posted there SEP 83-84.

I spent about half my tour doing my MOS (17C sound and flash target acquisition), and the other half faking competence (aka OJT) as a GSR operator of TPS-58s on Radar Site 7, up on top of Soi San Mountain. Our battery ran sites 4 7, and the radar platoon pogues were the only guys who got their chance to earn Imjin Scout patches. I wasn't up on the Z long enough to earn mine, sad to say. I did earn a scar on my right cornea when a cav scout punched out my glasses lens, though -- that later earned me a VA disability rating of precisely zero percent but what the hell, I can still shoot pretty good.

We sometimes harassed the 102 MI guys when they bivvied outside Site 7. Once we liberated CS grenades from the ROK tunnels and rolled a couple into their tents, then disappeared back into the tunnels. Good times for us, but they were kind of pissed as I recall.

I was pretty surprised when one of my AIT instructors, SFC Adam Hairston, showed up to take over the radar platoon. Later, after I re-trained into 13M (MLRS), he showed up at Ft. Stewart to take over as 1SG of 1/13 FA and by then, I wasn't surprised anymore -- the man was clearly dogging my trail! He was a hardass, but a fair guy.

Another guy I remember was SSG Twardzicki (sp?), who was a recruiter at the Lacey, WA station. As a young buck sergeant, he was the engineer who went out to cut down the Panmunjom tree AFTER the axe murders -- pretty gutty guy, and he was awarded the MSM for that. For a few weeks before I flew to ROK, I was a recruiter's aid under him. "Sergeant T," if you read this, don't forget I beat your ass running around the Nisqually Delta. Just that one time, but it counts, baby!

As far as the KDSM is concerned, I didn't find out about it until I jumped back into the USAR as an old re-tread and got myself deployed to FOB Sykes in Iraq, where my team supported 3-2 and 1-25 Stryker Brigade Combat Teams. Now at least I have a 2ID combat patch, even though I'll never see that Imjin Scout award. The KDSM was added to my DD214 when we re-deployed and de-mob'd at Ft. Bragg. What a nice surprise that was.

Anybody from E-TAB 25th FA, ca. mid-80s, feel free to drop a line to jaxworx@gmail.com. Thanks for this site, Don. Great work.

A Mother Asked
A mother asked President Bush,

"Why did my son have to die in Iraq?"

Another mother asked President Kennedy,

"Why did my son have to die in Viet Nam?"

Another mother asked President Truman,

"Why did my son have to die in Korea?

Another mother asked President F.D. Roosevelt,

"Why did my son have to die at Iwo Jima?"

Another mother asked President W. Wilson,

"Why did my son have to die on the battlefield of France?"

Yet another mother asked President Lincoln,

"Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg?"

And yet another mother asked President G. Washington,

"Why did my son have to die near Valley Forge?"

Then long, long ago, a mother asked...

"Heavenly Father, why did my Son have to die

on a cross outside of Jerusalem?"

The answers to all these are similar --

So that others may have life and dwell in peace, happiness and freedom."

Now no one can really hold me to this and my spelling but I remember on those DMZ Sniper Imjin Scout patch's, like I remember in the vills they used to have everything we had made up in all differant way and kinda remember like outside Camp Casey I don't remember how to spell that vill Tong Du Chon but saying to someone in my Platoon "hey Check these out but never knew of anything official and odishy saying Number 1 I was telling him numba 2 ! Pro Patria doughboy

The following Imjin Scout patches were received from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. The museum requested information regarding the authenticity of the patches and any other information that we could provide. It is my belief that these patches are not authentic. I suspect that they were fabricated on the Korean economy and sold to PX soldiers. The only two patches that I know to be authentic are the Imjin Scout patch with no caption at the bottom awarded to ACTA graduates the Imjin Scout patch that has DMZ in gold letters at the bottom of the patch. This version of the Imjin Scout patch was awarded to soldiers after performing 20 operational missions within the DMZ. If you have any information regarding the following patches, please contact the site webmaster. The following patches appear homemade and amateurish.

Imagine 8 brand new 2Lt's on a 3/4 ton truck bouncing through the turkey farm! I survived the ride and served a year with HHC as the 4-duce platoon leader. BLV for four months pulling skozie duty south of the Imjin as well as the annual ORT, then 4 months north of the river shooting illumination over the fence. And a little time for cruzin in Nullo-ri and Munsan. Heady stuff for a 19 year old kid, but good prep for Vietnam. Imjin Scout patches are available through several of the surplus insignia stores on line. "Rock of the Marne"

Dear Mr. Don M. Lopez (and Mr. Don Nye)

First of all, I have to thank you for your informative and very interesting website.
This website - together with another article and book, that I manage to discover today, has for the first time in a long time - added a very important brick to my puzzle of the past.

Yesterday I took a decisive step, that finally led me to your website, and I realized that we share one thing: a wish to remember a forgotten past!
And maybe your contribution will be the one, which can open a door for me, where I am given the possibility to rediscover my own past in Korea.

But let me first present myself: My name is Lene Eul/Wul-Soon Yang/Pedersen. I'm a Danish Korean-adoptee (who is now living in Italy), and who desperately is trying to rebuild a puzzle from the past. And I wonder if you or anyone you know who served in Korea in the years 1968-1970, could help me.

What I'm trying to do is to re-construct my past from which I have only vague body memories. To these memories is a strange feeling to in some way or another being connected to the American troops or/and camps north of Seoul - in the area around Uijeonbu and Tongdoochon.
A couple of years ago I happen to get the chance to visit Camp Casey - and I had this very strange feeling that the place felt familiar. Almost like I'd been there before.

This has finally given me the courage today to ask this question, which has been nagging me for quite a time now. I would like to know if you (or anybody else, who has been living in one of the camps in South Korea) have a memory or knowledge of a young Korean woman, who died (or someone found dead) with her baby/little girl in the years around 1969 (or 1968)? I believe the girl was around 1-year old, but she could have been younger or older. Or/and that this Korean baby was brought to or went through Camp Casey (or one of the other camps nearby) - and then abandoned to the Yangju Baby Home in Tongdoochon, where KWAK, Sun-Yong was superintendent?

Unfortunately I have very few information, that I even don't know for sure if they are all valid. The few information I have all (except one information) refer to the Kyong-gi province - and especially Uijeounbu and Tongdoochon. The rest are only vague "memories" and "senses" that I can't explain more precisely than above. I can't say for sure, that my mother is dead, but I have experienced this very strong feeling/flash back that she died lying next to me. I just don't know where and under which circumstances. Another "sense" that I can't explain in more rational terms is this strange feeling/connection I have experienced in regard to the American troops/camps in this area.
In addition to this I can only tell that the two times when I have been back in Korea after 30 years of absence, I have not yet dared to visit the DMZ - because even to think about it gives me a unexplained fear deep inside me. Maybe because I had this feeling inside, that my story was connected to some kind of violent incidents. Incidents that I have never been able to confirm - before today - when I realized that there actual have been a kind of a (forgotten) war going on exactly these years, when I was born and living in Korea.
I must admit it has been a bit of a shaking realization, but also in a way being comforting for my vague "senses", that I have been doubting how much I could believe in.

I would therefor be very grateful, if you think you could provide ANY kind of information related to this subject, even that it seems meaningless. Thanks a lot for your patience - and forgive me to disturb you on this personal matter!

Best regards
Lene Eul-Soon Yang

You have ommited an incident which had occured in 1955 or 1956 while I was Eighth Army photographer attached to the Public Information Office. An Army L-19 with pilot and rear passenger had been shot down while straying too close to DMZ. The pilot was new and was flying northeast when he should have been flying southwest. The plane crashed into North Korea.The pilot survived, but his passenger had unexplainedly unbuckled his shoulder and seat harness before the crash and died. I was assigned to cover the transfer of the injured pilot and the body of his passenger. A similar incident happened again in 1995.

Hello to all fellow DMZ Vets...since my service on the DMZ in 1968 I have always thought that those of us that were 11B and engaged the enemy (NKP) should have been awarded the CIB. Well the double standard has been righted and with the proper documentation the CIB is available to those with the 11B MOS. With information I obtained from the KDVA web site I submitted my paperwork. I just receieved permanent order# 037-24 authority: AR 600-8-2, paragraph 8-6, from the DOA, dated 06 Feb 2006 awarding me the coveted CIB. I am so gratful that after all these years I have finally received what I earned so many years ago in a forgotten place, the Korean DMZ. It is hard to explain. Anyway the door is open for those that have the MOS and the documentation....don't give up...Dale

Hello Jennifer,

It is my pleasure to respond to your questions pertaining to the attached patches. I served on the DMZ from April 1969 until December 1969. However, most of what I have learned about the Imjin Scout patch and certificate and the policies pertaining to them I have discovered as webmaster of http://www.imjinscout.com. I have managed to find a few source documents but most of what I know is the result of communicating with numerous officer and enlisted veterans. There is a link below to an article published in the American Society of Military Insignia Collectors (ASMIC) in 1Q03. The author of the article, a former lieutenant, was a part of the group that established the Imjin Scout program in the middle sixties.

Regarding the patches you forwarded, I would say the following: While I do not doubt that these may have been worn by someone in Korea, I can only confirm that one of them is an authentic Imjin Scout patch. It is the multi-color patch without any caption at the bottom. There was never any such thing as a "DMZ Sniper". There were two Imjin Scout patches. The one you have sent me was awarded to graduates of the Advanced Combat Training Academy (ACTA) and did not require continuous service in the DMZ (although the Academy was located along the DMZ north of the Imjin River). The other authorized patch was identical except it bore the word "DMZ" at the bottom. This patch was awarded to soldier who completed at least 20 operational missions within the DMZ and most soldiers who were assigned to infantry units on the DMZ spent a six month tour so the 20 missions was a natural consequence of their assignment there, so most everyone received one. The subdued patches were worn after the BDU was introduced in the early 80's. Again, the only authorized subdued patches have the "DMZ" caption at the bottom or have no caption at the bottom. Anything else is bogus.

The patch and the certificate was authorized for local wear only so soldiers were supposed to remove the patch from their uniforms upon departure from Korea. As a local program, the patches were ordered from local sources on the Korean economy. I suspect that the unauthorized versions of the patch that you are in possession of were made by one of the several Korean vendors who operated near the American bases. As you probably know, soldiers often wear unathorized awards and decorations. We used refer to them as "PX soldiers" as they would often buy and wear awards and decorations they had not earned.

The Imjin Scout award was instituted in the 1965 or 1966 time frame and included a patch and a certificate. At some point between 1965 and 1991 the patch was discontinued and recognition was limited to the certificate. In 1991 the Imjin Scout program was terminated.

To Whom It May Concern-

I was hoping that you could possibly help me catalog some Imjin Scout
patches. I have two attached pictures of the patches and needed to know the time periods as to when they were worn, if they were official patches or if they were official but only worn locally. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My name is Gary Duran. I served with HHC 2/32rd in Battalion Maintence from November 1967 to January 7, 1969. We had pet names for every one in the motor pool. Mine was "BUGSY" I am looking for anyone from Battalion Maintence, or the Recon Platoon. I had the best time of my life in Korea. When my levy came down I was in Camp Pickett Virginia, with the 6th Armoured Calv on TDY from Fort Meade, Maryland.

When I went to the motor pool the first day, there was this big ugly Staff Sergent that I recognozed. As it turned out, he was my instructor in wheel school, in Fort Ord, Monterey California. I was in Korea when North Korea bagged the Peublo spy ship.

Every six months we rotated from Camp Lawton to Camp Dodge across the Imjin river. To this day, I can remember the smell of kimchi in the morning.

Anyone wishing to contact me, please do, email or by phone...209-239-5882 and ask for Gary. This is my business in California, or by email....duratec@softcom.net.

I left Korea on January 7, 1969.....my 21st birthday. My flight number was N2K4. I don't know why I still remember it, but what a great present, a big shinny Boeing 707 with my name on it. So far I have had a great life, and hope every one else has too.

I was a SSG with Co. A. 2/23rd from May 1968 to June 1969. I spent many days in the "Z" on patrol. As a "shake and bake" NCO (class 10 Fort Benning) I was lucky to have served with experienced career NCOs during my time there who taught me skills not covered at the NCO school. Our company commander, Captain Beamesderfer, had been a NCO and as a result understood what problems we faced. While I only spent two years in the army, it was an experience that helped me greatly in dealing with people.

HHC 1/23 Inf. Ron Macdonald I Arrived in Korea in May of "67" and was assigned to the Mortor Platoon with the 1/23 at Camp Young. Duties when I arrived were taking part in overnight ambush patrols, daytime patrolling, and manning OP Dort. I think we took turns with the Recon Platoon up at Dort. Billy Cook, one of the radar men was killed shortly after I arrived. He had been up at Dort with us and as was the case with the men who operated the radar up there, they didn't have to wait for their replacement to come in the following day, they just packed up and headed back to Camp Young. That is when their jeep ran over a mine and they were ambushed.
Following the winter down at Blue Lancer Valley the duties of the Mortor Platoon was confined to support of the line companies and the only ones who did duty on the DMZ from our platoon were the F.O.'s, of which I was one. Much of my time after that was spent with "B" Co. up at G.P. Seiler. Unfortunately, I don't recall any of the names of the guys from that company even though we were up there for five days at a time and had a few memorable incidents. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone from that company that spent time at Seiler in the spring of "68" I'd like to verify a few things. If Tony Gomes, Richard Carlson, Jim Delucia or any others from the mortor platoon see this, get in touch.

Dear all,

Was wondering if anybody possesses a copy of the 1965 colour version of the North Korean propaganda magazine 'Fortune's Favorites', featuring four defectors including Jenkins et al, claiming how wonderful their new life was north of the border.

I'm working with filmmaker Daniel Gordon on a documentary - some of you may have already been in contact with him.

I linked up to this web site by accident while looking for something else and I gotta say, it sure has stirred up some memories. I don't seem to have an Imjin Scouts patch any more, but I just rummaged through my records and found my certificate which was awarded to me in the A Troop motorpool in the summer of 67 by Colonel Ahrenholz, the 2nd Brigade Commander. It's been almost 40 years and suddenly it seems like it was last week. I enjoy reading everything regarding this elite group and hope to run across some of you who has served in A Troop between April 67 and May 68.

Can some one tell me where I can pick up another Imjin Scouts patch?

It was great hearing from 1Lt D. Pickett via this message board. In looking at this site I did not find much about the long overdue recognition of DMZ vets and the awards that have been made during the past year. If you are interested go to the Korea Veterans of America, Inc. website at: http://kdvamerica.org/

You'll find information regarding the Korea Defense Service Medal and new regulations that allow the many vets that were in combat to apply for a CIB.

Congrats to all that served and apply for your long overdue awards.

Yes, Barry, I am the same 2lt....Older, dumber(some would probably question what could be dumber than a 2LT), uglier, and heavier...wow, could I patrol the DMZ today? I think not, so I will just stick with memories. Like the other DMZ units, the 2/38th had great officers, NCO's, and those great people who got the job done without getting the credit they deserved. I contacted you by email, would love to hear from you, and await your answer. It is absolutely great to know you are alive and kicking....Dpickett

Saw the entry above and wondered if DPickett is a 2LT Pickett I served with in C Company. Let me know as we patrolled the Zone in 68/69 and shared quarters with 2LT Bayard.

I recently sent a comment about going to www.1stopkorea.com and viewing some interesting pictures and words taken from the North side of visiting Panmunjom. I didn't realize the site offers a lot of other info as well. To view the trip to Panmunjom from Pyongyang, go to 1stopkorea.com and type dmz in the search box. It covers trips from the South side and North, but the North is the interesting one. DPickett

Thanks for remembering us who served deligently on 'The Zone' during a time of great tension and hostility. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. I also want visitors to know they can get an Imjin Scout patch currently available (12-31-05) on eBay at this url: http://cgi.ebay.com/US-Army-Imjin-Scouts-Patch-Korea-DMZ-Patrol_W0QQitemZ6591278047QQcategoryZ48824QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

I am in no way affiliatd with or have any interest in the above site. I had lost my patch (still have award) and wanted to get a replacement. Many have searched for the patch availability and I thought I would share this find.

I wish every DMZ vet the best year you have ever had. It's great not to have to freeze in the cold, endure the heat, live in a tent or what resembles a half-buried tin can, or play a live video game using real enemies and bullets. We share a lot of memories. If you ever made Panmunjom, you may be interested in a web site at www.1stopKorea.com that shows a tour from the North side...interesting. To all scouts from the 2/38th and every other DMZ unit, have a great year. DPickett, 2/38th, March 1968 to April 1969.

Served at Blue Lancer Valley from Dec. 1965 until Dec. 31st. 1966. I was with the 2/38th Infantry (2ID). Can never forget the smell in the summer and the freezing cold in the winter. At times, we could still hear the speakers from the North. I also was on the 3 man team that was with the last Turkish Company in 1966. What a bunch of wild guys they were. It was a year I will never forget. Hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Good web site.

I was with the 3/23 in Charlie Company. I was awarded my Imjin Scout badge in early 1970. I spent about 9 months north of the river. I did the patrols, the outposts, and manned the fence. I even did gun jeep duty for a while.

Right now, I'm fighting with the VA over my disability claim. How many of you guys knew that we were all exposed to Agent Orange? How many of you have skin cancer? No one ever told us while we were there. You can find the info on the VFW website.

I don't know if anyone else feels the way that I do about my service. I don't think that we were ever given credit for what we went through. No, we did not fight firefights everyday but we saw action.

I'm also trying to locate an Imjin Scout patch. I no longer have my uniforms and would like to have a patch for my colors vest. If anyone can help me, please do.

I have fond memories of all of the guys that I served with. I have not heard or seen any of you in over 20 years. Please write.

What a wonderful story from wgreenhut@aol.com. I thank you for your service and sacrifice. I served as a platoon leader and XO from '70 to '71 with eight months of DMZ duty.

Think about it, we and other allies and the ROKs have protected South Korea for over 50 years. This protection allowed the country to develop into an economic powerhouse in Asia, dramatically raising the standard of living for all of its citizens. If you have seen any of the film clips recently smuggled out of North Korea, this should only reinforce your pride and validate the sacrifice that so many made for keeping the millions of South Koreans free. It is truly a job well done and I salute all of the Imjin Scouts for their bravery and steadfastness. Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a story I should have told on Veterans Day but, for some reason, I didn't think of it then. So, here it is Thanksgiving and I have another opportunity. I'm not trying to relate it to the current situation because I don't think it does relate. I am telling it for you.
It is of minor importance but you should know, for purposes of the story, that I was WIA in the DMZ. Here goes:

I was in Toronto on business last May. I was being introduced to a group of doctors. One of them was a Korean with an accent so I knew he had not been born in Canada. I did my usual routine, asked if he had been born in Seoul (most of them are), then asked what street he lived on. He thought about it for a minute and I said "just kidding," and he laughed.
I told him I was born in Munsan and he laughed again. Naturally, he was curious how I knew about Korea so we talked and discovered that he was bor
