Comments: I would like to correct a misstatement in Royal Gelineau's story about "A day in the 355 Precinct". He mentions that Baker Company was in that position that was overrun from the 6th Oct to the 23rd. This is incorrect. I was there. I was a corporal in Dog Company and we lost a few good men between the 1st of October and the morning of the 23rd when we pulled out. We exchanged positions with Baker Company overnight on Oct 22/23. I had an outpost out in front until 6:00 AM on the 23rd. We then watched from the reserve position when the Chinese attacked at 6:00PM. AT 8:00 PM we (Dog Co.) were told that we would go back in on the counter attack. We had the position secured by 2:00 AM.

Comments: Excellent site. I was very interested in your story section were veterans can tell of their experiences. One story in particular fascinated me, "Did you Know Willy Fong?" by Roger Beauregard. That was because my father who served as a sergeant with the 1st Battalion of the R22R in 1952-53, mentioned Willie's name to me. Dad never has talked that much about his experiences in Korea, but I starting asking him about the war after I found out that the bronze Oak Leaf attached to his Korean War medal meant that he had been "Mentioned-in-Dispatches". He still says that he doesn't know why he received the MID, and the citation merely states that it was for "Gallantry". Over time I managed to get some bits of information from him, but I could tell that he didn't relish the thought of rehashing old memories. He talked about some things, like how they'd have to go on night patrols, and that he was in charge of a Motor platoon, and he said that he was a Fire Controller (not being military, I have no idea what the means.). He also talked about the flares lighting up the night sky. Anyways he eventually did mention the names of some 4, or 5 men who he sadly saw killed in action and whose names are listed on the honour roll of the Korean War dead. One of them was Lieutenant Arthur Herman, who is also mentioned in the story about Willie Fong and another of course, was Willie Fong. Sadly enough, my father was with Willie Fong when he died. Mr. Beauregard's story, which had been told to him and which was very touching and amusing, states that; "Willie was fatally wounded in the head and immediately rendered unconscious." My father's story is similar in nature, but differs with regard to Willies last moments. According to my father, Willie was struck in the center of his forehead by the "butt" part of a grenade, this occurred while the Chinese were attacking them, and they were throwing everything they had back at them. My father said that Willie was awake, and that they offered him morphine to relieve his pain. It was the most vivid accounting my father ever gave to me of the action he saw in Korea. He said he'd never forget what Willie told them. According to my father there were other wounded about and Willie said "don't bother with me, give it to someone who's going to live", then Willie died. My dad said that those were Willies last words, and that he'd never forget that thankless act. I hope someday that Willie's nephew happens upon this account. My dad says that the only heroes from the Korean War are still in Korea, and Willie was obviously one of his heroes. I don't know whether or not Mr. Beauregard would want to add this to his story, but I guess I already am by mentioning it here. Anyways, I guess I've told a bit about my father's story and he probably wouldn't be too happy that I have, since he doesn't like talking about such stuff. Being my dad, I will always consider him as my hero.

Comments: I was writting to see if anyone out there remembers a GEORGE O.H SULLIVAN, he is my grandfather and I'd like to hear some stories about when he was in Korea. My grandfather never talks about his time there and when he does its about the children and how horrible it was seeing them and not being able to help them. I know that he got there after the war and was in the clean up crew(from what I understand)but thats all I know. I do know that one of his good friends there needed blood and my grandfather was the only one able to give it to him (same weird blood type) and so my grandfather went in and gave almost all of his blood and then went on leave to try to escape punishment well it found him and he spent quite a few days in the kitchen peeling potatoes. If you remember this or the name (GEORGE O.H SULLIVAN) please feel free to write to me I'm sure he'd love to hear from his old friends as I'd love to hear about his time there. Thank you for your time Sandie

Comments: Well, not really sure what to say here. I just read through my fathers service record and found some information that I am not sure what to do with. My father was Douglas Robert White. He passed away in April 1993 and its a loss that I will never get over. Dad served in Korea, but never spoke of it. I have read many of the guestbook signings and noted that alot of the vets never spoke of it. I guess that made me feel better in some strange way. Dad was in Unit No. 191 of RCEME and shipped over to Korea in Dec. 1952 to Dec. 1953. I guess I am looking for people that knew him, or of him that could give me an insight on what went on there. Though I am sure this is a slim to no chance way of finding contacts, but wanted to give it a try. I like the website, but wish I could get more on his unit and where or what they did in Korea. Thanks for reading my ramblings! Jan

Comments: My best friend's father, Charles "Chuck" Errol Cusson served in Korea. He passed away last April in Windsor, Ontario. He worked in the Forestry Dept. of the City of Windsor for almost thirty years. He had one son Darryl and a daughter Michelle. I feel that he should be remembered. At his funeral it was said that he was a "scout" during the war.Is his name anywhere on the site.

Comments: Trying to find out about my father-in-laws unit during Korean War. Anyone remeber John Green. All I know is he went to jump school. He did not, and would not, talk about his time there. Mother-in-law tells us he came back a changed man. Likely that by the time anyone reads this John will have passed on. He is in hospital now with little time left. We want to connect with members of his unit to pass this along and learn more about a man who was very quiet about his experiences there. Thanks in Advance

I was trained in Ipperwash, Ont. 1951 and went to Korea in Nov 52=53. was with "B" Coy 3rd platoon. Was on Hill 355, 127 and a couple of others that l cant seem to remember. l remember the shooting gallery tho, fun and games going down that in day light. Gone but not forgotten as l am sure others have the same feeling. l read a bit about Sgt Prince that crazy indian from Winnipeg, he was there once and then went back again, guess he didnt know when to quit. A real hero none the less.

Comments: Hello, Recently my grandfather passed away and I received his war medals to remember him by. They are very important to me however I would like to learn more about his involvement in the war. His name was L Cpl. GEORGE MITCHELL from Scarborough, Ontario. An old newspaper clip that I have shows my grandad with four other men from the Royal Canadian Engineers as they return from Korea - I'm not sure whether this was his role. The photo was taken in Fort Lewis, Wash. I also have a photo album with many photos that my grandfather took while he was in Korea. One is of the Ginza Beer Hall on New Years Eve (I have no idea which year). I know that my grandad played goalie (#10) for the Ft. Lewis hockey team. Any information or suggestions on where I might find more information would be greatly appreciated. Take care! Natalie

Are you a Korean War Veteran?: Son of a peacekeeper - recognized as a vet
Comments: My dad (Clair Robinson) served as an MP (Military Police - not a politican)for nearly 30 years for Canada. As a military brat, I never understood why my dad was away - especially when he did a tour in Cyprus. Families make sacrifices to help protect our country. Thankfully, our government is SLOWLY taking the time to recognize and honour its own. One of the greatest moments for my dad was when he received a little pin and a piece of paper stating he was recognized as a vet. A year ago, I nearly lost my dad to a massive heart attack. I cherish every moment with him more so than before. It is hard to accept the age of my parents - yet at 31 - I slowly see myself aging. I am grateful that the USS General William Mitchell brought my father home alive and well. So many other families lost their loved ones. Thanks to the ones who paid the ultimate price...their life.

I have since become a devotee of Roly Soper's site, among others around the world.I now realise the great amount of effort and hard work that numerous veterans have been putting in over the years to keep the Korean War in the public domain. To name a few that I've had contact with, like your own Les Peate, Peter FisherofSussex And"In Memorium", Charlie Haynes Web Master of BKVA to name only three very helpful and proud chaps. Tommorrow being the date it is, I would like to Personally wish all remaining Korean Veterans the World over, Good Health, Good Luck & may we all be celebrating the Ceasefire in ten years time.

Comments: Hello: I found your page as I was researching some information on my now deceased brother in law . My brother in law was a veteran of the Korean war. He was the kindest and most wonderful man god grace this earth with. I praise his skills as a dad to me as well as his love as a brother. His name was Bernard Libby, his dad was an American. His wife, my sister who has since remarried is in Ottawa Canada as is his son. His daughter is in Alberta Canada on her way to Japan to work. I write now with a real concern . I am in St. John's Newfoundland and am ashamed to say that as I write this email and research this information, our mayor and city council are doing anything and everything possible to build a Loblaws grocery store on top of our war memorial (stadium) that was bought and paid for by the veterans and citizens here of St John's. It seems to be something that they are going to have whether we like it or not. Thus far they have sold the property including the War Memorial to the Loblaws company who plan on building. If you have any info on how I can help prevent this insult, I would kindly appreciate it. Mr. Shawn Beulman beulman@hotmail.com

Comments: My novel STAY SAFE, BUDDY was just released at www.publishamerica.com just in time to compete with Hillary Clinton's book. Har, har, har! Here's the way I am announcing my book: Hooray, my new baby is finally out. I named her Stay Safe, Buddy. She didn't come from my wife, or sexy mistress (Mistress? At my age, dream on John ). OK, I confess. She's not a little human. She's a novel and she came out of my head and heart. She is my firstborn (novel) though and I'm real proud of her. Consider yourself as having received a cigar or sweet chocolate. You can see my firstborn, Stay Safe Buddy, at www.publishamerica.com . Just type the title in the search area or my author name of J. Charles Cheek. She's also available for purchase at 1-877-333-7422. Subtitled A Story of Humor and Horror during the Korean War, the book is based on my personal experiences as a soldier. Most of the action takes place during the last seven months of the Korean War. Nearly all of the characters are based or real people I knew and many of the incidents actually occurred as described. Below is a short synopsis: Promised that he won't have to fight in combat, instead of being drafted for 2-years, 19-year old John Lefter enlists for a 3-year hitch in the Army Security Agency and ends up in the Korean War. At first, Lefter has a "candy ass" assignment 30 miles behind the fighting area. He spends a lot of time drinking beer, laughing and partying. Then he is forced to face his own mortality after being assigned bunker duty in the fighting area. He breaks down after his foul mouth buddy is hit with burp gun fire while saving Lefters life. In a hospital psychiatry ward, his recovery is aided dramatically by an innovative doctor and the only man he has ever hated. Back on the front line and atop the bunker celebrating just after the cease-fire, Lefter is again confronted with a shocking incident that takes him over fifty years to find closure. My ego needs to have a lot of folks look at my firstborn, so please pass this information on to anyone who may be interested. Order her at www.publishamerica.com or 1-877-333-7422. Thanks, John .
