Abbott, Robert - I would like to add a few notes to your site.  My dad Robert Abbott U.S. Army 7th Division 32 Regiment Service Company, was in some of the battles you write about.  He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for the dates of Nov. 15 - Dec 15 1950.  His citation reads the 32 Inf moved through Northern Korea to the Yalu River area and then South to the Hamhung - Hungnam area. Driving day and night and under constant threat of ememy fire Private Abbott, often without sleep made numerous trips over the treacherous icy mountain roads. If you were there you know the rest. I saw a pin the other day it was called the Chosen Frozen.  I am thinking that must have been all of you who were there.  Some men he speaks of from his unit are Errol Hutchinson, Tony Calamastro, Robert Evans, Smitty (Paul C. Smith) Richardson, Harper and many more. I have recently found that Hutchinson has passed away.  May God rest his soul. My dad is alive and well, with the exception of losing his sight. He would love it if we could find anyone from his unit, or others who were there. I hope I hear from someone. I am so proud of all that my dad and the other men did. I think you are all heroes.  I do have original extract papers and with a lot of men's names and serial numbers etc, if anyone knows how i could utilize these to find these men please contact me.  Thank you.   Cindy Schmit.

Brigante, Michael R. - My name is . I was with the 12th Fighter Bomber Sqdn. at K55 from Jan 1953 through Dec of 53.  I now live in Lake St. Louis MO.  I joined the Air Force out of high school in New York in May of 1952.

Britt, S/Sgt. William Edward - My name is Barbara Britt Forbish and I am the only child of S/Sgt. William Edward Britt who was killed on March 22, 1955 when the Navy DC-6 transport he was riding in crashed into Diamond Head.  I have very little information on my dad as my mother was extremely resentful that he went overseas when apparently he could have requested not to go as he had a wife and baby. Because of this resentment, she destroyed everything relating to my father except for 3 pictures my great-grandmother hid from her and gave to me before her death.

When I was little, I just accepted my dad was dead. As I reached my 20's, it bothered me that I knew so little, but my mother continued to refuse to tell me anything. Over the last year, God has graciously dropped two people in my lap who knew my dad and one actually had a letter from him that detailed a great deal of his military service and she generously gave it to me.

I can tell you that he enlisted in the Air Force and took his basic training in San Antonio, Texas on November 2, 1951. He was shipped to Amarillo, Texas (where I was born at the base hospital) on January 4, 1953 where he attended jet mechanic school and then became and instructor. He was also at Tellis(?) AFB in Las Vegas for 6 weeks sometime after May of 1953. He shipped out for Korea on January 18, 1954 and stopped off in Japan and eventually was stationed at Siewan. He left there on August 4, 1954 and returned to Japan. The letter I have is dated December 28, 1954 and in it he says he will be leaving for home in about 80 days, but doesn't say where he is.

A month ago I was contacted by a lady from his home town of Marengo, Illinois who said her husband is a member of the VFW. They are interested in honoring my dad with a star on a plaque, but she felt the date of his death was incorrect as her husband had seen my dad in Hawaii just before he shipped home in December of '54. When I got the letter my dad wrote, there was a clipping about the crash that states all the passengers had boarded in Tokyo.

There is a large hole in my heart where my dad should be. All I know is that he smoked a pipe, the lady from Marengo tells me he played the drums and the bass and was very musical. I now have 5 pictures as she sent me two from his year book. Please feel free to give out my email address as well as my home address and phone number to anyone who might have met him anytime he was in the service.
I will greatly appreciate any and all help you can give me.

Bishop, William Boyce - I found your web site today by accident.  My father served in the Korean war from 1950-53.  I am 37 now, so by the time I was born on up to adulthood I heard no more mentioned  than a few words, newspaper clip, and letter saying "goodbye from San Francisco."  I am only now just beginning to understand all that tormented this wonderful man that took his own life in 1994.  If you could connect me with other family members, veterans, etc. that may have  the same shared experiences I might be able to put some of the pieces together to this tragedy and continuing saga for me...  one left behind.  I did locate his discharge papers but they aren't very legible.  From what I can tell he was discharge on June 19, 1952 form HQ 3d Armored Division, Ft. Knox, Kentucky.  It also indicates his most significant duty assignment was Sve Brty, 695th AFA Bn...  I believe as best as I can tell.  His service number was RA 14 325 602.  I hope from this information you can put me in touch with someone who knew him perhaps or was where he was and could shed some light about what he dealt with there.  You've been very helpful.  Thank you very much.   Anxiously awaiting a reply, Sherry Bishop

D'Arcy, John R. - My name is Marcel Harry Valiquette. I am looking for information in regards to my uncle John R D'Arcy of Manitoba, Cda. He was involved in both wars in Korea.  Recently my mother Fran {D'Arcy} gave me her brothers war rifle.  It is a Winchester, 30 M 1. I am  currently restoring his gun. As I am doing this restoration of his gun, I think a lot about him. I never met my uncle because after the war, he went to work up in the Yokon, NWT, and started a family there.  He was killed up in Hayes River, NWT. He was welding a barge and it blew up. They never did find his body. It is too bad that he had to die before we could meet him, after going thru two wars and surviving, then coming home, to be blown up and killed. He was my mother's only brother and the last surviving member of her family.Thus I wish to find out more of him, what he did in the war, etc.  Maybe I could post an ad somewhere for other vets to read. Perhaps someone out there remembers him. Maybe they have pictures? We don't have any of him.So please respond to my request for information. Any suggestions would be most pleasing. Are there any web sites i can access?  My E-mail: address is

Greer, John H. - I was with the 2nd when we landed in a surrounded Puson at the beginning. we replace a marine company facing hill 409 we could see it had been hell for the marines we replaced by all of the dead bodies at the bottom of our small hill. we moved about five hundred yards on a knoll facing a road. much used by both sides we had everyday hostilities as our tank brought out the dead from a village a mile to our right. we were sent to the village dayly to reenforce it and encountered korean troops trying to move south through us. we were to busy then to realize the possition we were in. if my memory is right we were in 1st regiment A company. we stayed and fought there till Inchon was invaded and we started moving north against retreating koreans, few made it. we suffered huge loses in men and equipment but held on till Inchon.

He was not a casulaty, but I do not know if he had been wounded. I never knew him. My mother divorced him after the war and I was adopted by my step father. Thank you for your time. Dennis F Gruber (Griswold).

John Louis Grandowicz - He was a Korean war veteran, serving from March, 1951 to Jan., 1953.  He served with the 369th Core of Engineers. I have pictures and memoriabilia to share that he brought home from the service that I would love to share with you and other fellow veterans of the Korean war.  My father was so touched by the whole war, especially the children.  He was a cook.  And he served plenty of good meals. He always would find some extra's for the orphaned Korean children of the war.  I have pictures to show that.  He was a father figure to a lot of the children that were orphaned in the war.  I guess that is why my father had so many children of his own.  When he came back from the war he married my mom Florence Byrd and had 11 children.  He told us lots of stories of the "forgotten war" but I thought they were just all stories, because there was no media.  No acceptance of news of a civil war in Korea.  The only show about Korea was M.A.S.H., and  I thought that show was about Vietnam, because nobody talked about Korea except my father.  My father was diagnosed with Crohn's Diease when he was 23 years old. He lived to be 65 years old.  He died of a heart attack.  He had 43 surgeries to remove the small and large colon, leaving him only 3 feet of bowel left.  He lived this way for the last 17 years of his life.  To this day, I can still hear him say "I wonder if it was something I ate in Korea?" or " It was those damn Atomic testing in Nevada, I just know it!".  I commend you starting this Korean War Museum.  I hope my father's history can help.  I was considering building my own memorial for those Korean Vets.  This is great.  My father still lives on when I see all these Korean War veterans.  My dad was good friends with a John Pasonovich(not sure of the spelling). If you can contact his buddy this would be great.  My dad used to go to all the reunions for his class in the Army, but as of June 6th, 1996 that was no longer to be for he had died. Please let me know what I could do. Thank you, Kathleen Malko, 31027 W.Bellview St., Buckeye, AZ 85326  623-393-0925

Gutierrez, "Ross" S. - My father was a veteran of the Korean War. He was a Ranger. His training took place at Fort Bliss, TX. His name is Rosendo "Ross" S. Gutierrez. He is originally from Valencia New Mexico. I am interested in finding out more about his service in the Army. He was a Purple Heart recipient. His memories were to painful for him to ever discuss them openly. From what I recall, he was one, if not the only survivor of the battle for which he received the Purple Heart. He suffered a great deal due to this experience. He had severe back problems, from "being frozen in a Rice Patty" (?), Not to mention many unspoken psychological problems (perceived), nightmares, etc. His family members say he was "never the same" when he returned home. I Loved my father very much. I want to understand him better, so I can share him with my four sons three of whom never met him.  Is there a resource where I can review his service records? What type of information will I need to provide to obtain this information.  Thank you.   Sincerely,  James L. Gutierrez.

Johnson, Dennis W. - Served in the CIC corps. during the Korean conflict. I know that most of the circumstances surrounding his capture were and still are being kept sealed, but, I would like to know of any persons that might have had contact with him during his time in Korea. He was release in a prisoner exchange, and returned to the US, but, never fully recovered from the experience.  Also, due to this sealing of records, my mother is being denied any benefits from the government. As some of you can attest to, they had a fire and it (destroyed) most of the records for the CIC corps along with many others.  He has since passed on, after struggling with the VA through many painful and tearful meetings in Arkansas. I do not know if this will bring forth any light to the subject, but, I had to try to help as best that I can. Please, any persons associated with the CIC or other Army units that might have had contact with my father, contact me. This is not an inquiry for records release and you will not be called as any witness. We have long since given up on the legal route. I am simply seeking the truth of the situation to put this to rest.
He was awarded the Bronze Star and the Silver Star. He was a member of the Signal Corps and was trained as a medic. This is all the information that I have to go on, but, as I uncover more information I will try to forward it to help with the search. He was discharged as a SSGT. at Fort Chaffee, AR. Thank you.  .

Simmons, Jewell Walter.  US Navy.  He is my father, alive & well in Calif.  He joined the Navy approx. 1951 @ age 18 yrs. Completed boot-camp in San Diego, Ca. & promptly  began his service aboard the aircraft carrier  USS Antietam CV 36 / TF 77 out of Alameda, Ca.  He was an "Aviation Ordnance Man" with the VF-837 Squadron.  He considers himself  one of the lucky one's that his particular tour (1951-1955) rather docile, ironically the tragedy that even now he recalls quite vividly involved an F9F Panther that missed the tail hook upon landing, sliced through the steel cable & crashed horribly into other aircraft on deck.  He was below deck in the squad room on impact.  Upon answering the "all hands on deck" call he described the scene as "a hell of a mess". He remembers being tapped on the shoulder and being handed a stretcher with one of the victims on it and told to help get this guy to sick-bay.  In sleeping quarters that night a "Chief" walked through, the guy on the stretcher didn't make it, he had been one of three guys who had been trying to teach my dad how to play 'cut-throat pinochle.  The surviving 3 never played the game again.

Sintic Martin L. - I was drafted from Cleveland, Ohio on September 12, 1952. I
spent 10 days at Fort Geo. Mead for further assignment which was to
Aberdeen Proving Grounds. I spent the next 6 mos. at Aberdeen doing my
basic training, Instrument Repair school and a special course in the
maintenance of the brand new range finder for new M1 tank. In the first
part of April 1953, I reported to Fort Lewis, Wash. for further
assignment in the Far East. I shipped out of Seattle in the middle of
April 1953 and ended up at Camp Drake, Japan. A few days later I was
sent by rail to Sasebo, Japan. Almost immediately I transported by ship
to Inchon. Within a few days I was assigned to the 107th ORDNANCE CO.
(DS) I Corps, 8th Army. The 107th, at this time, was located near a
little town called YONCHON (approximately 15 miles north of another
little town called UIJONGBU, which was I corps hdqtrs). Also, we were
about a mile south of 7th Div. rear and just a bit west of the 2nd Div.
(8" howitzers) unit. I was with the 107th ORDNANCE from end of April
1953 until the end of September 1953 at which time I was flown to the
OSAKA ARMY HOSPITAL in Japan. In October 1953 I was assigned to the
TOKYO ORDNANCE DEPOT and remained there until approximately March 1954.
I was then assigned to the 8170th ORDNANCE CO. which was located within
the Camp Drake complex. All this while I remained an Instrument
Repairman. I left the 8170th ORD. CO. on August 6, 1954 for my discharge
and return home via San Fransisco, Oakland and Fort Knox. I would like
to find some G.I. friends. Here are a few names that I remember: corp.
Robt. Campilla, corp. Stanley Hirsch, pfc. Benny Woichekowski, pvt.
Duane Zenoble, pvt. Geo. Grevas, pvt. Wilber Harbin, corp. Eaddy( i
don't remember his first name) and our sergeant whose name was Nemets.

Speiser, J.C. -I was in Korea from 1977 through 1978.  Not exactly in the thick of things, but for an 18 year old from Florida it was enough.  Just out of AIT and a brand new infantryman, I was assigned to an Infantry Unit at Camp Casey.  Climb a mountain in full gear? I had never seen one before.  6 months at Casey, forced marches, squad drills, live fires, everything a teenager could want.  Then we relived the guys in the DMZ at Liberty Bell so thy could rotate to Kentucky.  What a difference!  Full combat loads, nightly patrols, curfew, Lt's sending 2 patrols into the same sector (forgetting to brief the squad sgt's on that little item) and then absolving  themselves when a fire fight broke out.  I got out in 1986, and have been in law enforcement for 13 years.  A shoot out, plenty of fights, but nothing compares to a 3am fire fight in February in the DMZ.  I have a real compassion fro those who served in the 60's and came home.  Please keep this website going!

Taylor, Arthur L. - I am trying to find out any information about my Father's role in the Korean War.  His name is Arthur L.

Temperly, James H. - I served in Korea from Jan of 1952 to Jan of 1953 with Company "B" 116th combat Engineer Battalion which was
then under 10th Corps. Our unit was responsible for keeping the oad that went up to and down into the
punch bowl. It was no easy task believe me. I drove a dump truck from 1800 at night until, 0600 the following morning.
This was seven days a week and went on the entire year I was there. I went from Basic/AIT training right to Korea.We did our duty, and did it proudly. I am
sick and tired of all the praise being given to the Viet-Nam vets who think they had it so hard. They know nothing. I
know, I was there two times. No, I didn't need drugs or pot to get me through each tour.
Sincerely: James H. Temperly U.S. Army Retired P.O. Box 115 Farley, Iowa 52046

I live in Alabama now.  One of the first contacts we had many years ago was with someone called Emmette Fike. He had a computer at the time and I'm betting that he is online if only I could come up with the right key words. Another name is Ret. LTC Bob Black who served with 8th Co and wrote a book about the Rangers.

Since my husband's death in 1989, I've remarried and have gotten my degree in History/Creative writing.  Unfortunately I have become confined to the house and the computer has become a major source of enjoyment to me.  My 19 year old son is awaiting a heart transplant, and I am waiting with him with them on my hands for conversation.

I wrote a short story called, "Baptism of Fire", about my husband's trip to Korea and his combaat at Chipyong-ni.  It was published at a local university.  I also wrote a poem about my husband's funeral at Arlington which was also published and which I had the honor to present at a reading.

Would like to share with anyone who is willing to keep an "old" lady company on her vigil.

I was a heavy equipment operator driving a 10 ton wrecker through Korea from Pusan to the Yalu. I was in Chunchon, Wanju, Seoul, and above the 38th parallel. I arrived May 8th 1951 from Fort Lewis, Washington through Japan to Sasebo and through the China Sea to Pusan, Korea. By old train to the front lines 5 days later. I drove many miles over rough terrain through the Kansas Line Pass, Heartbreak Ridge, Pork Chop Hill and many other areas of Korea. My job was to salvage those on the roads or remove equipment such as heavy mortar, back of the lines for repair or salvage. Many nights I helped two and a half ton trucks that were carrying gas to the front out of mud slides. Without my ROK helper named Yu Kop Sukee, I would not have made it home.

Not until I was older would he talk about his part in Korea (after seeing something on TV calling Korea a conflict and not a war). When he would mention Korea ; PORK CHOP HILL had been said a few times. My age at the time could only think of hamburger hill (the movie) and thought it was a mistake.
