Comments: I am searching for information on my father SFC JOE TAYLOR PENDERGRAFT. He died shortly after I was born, I have very little knowledge of his active service in Korea. I know that he was active duty from April 50- April 53. I have heard rumors that he was possibly a platoon leader. His discharge papers stated that he was in the A company 32nd Infantry Regiment. Any information is appreciated. Please contact me if you have any information.

If anyone knew my Dad and would share other stories, it would be appreciated. Dad passed away Jan 2001, and I am trying to gather information to pass on to his grand kids. I would also be interested in finding out what action/operations his unit was involved in during his time in combat.

Comments: My grandfather is Robert "Bob" Phillips and he served in the Korean war until January 1951 when he was wounded. He served in the 32nd Infantry, 7th division, C Company. After he was wounded he was sent to the Percy Jones General Hospital located in Battle Creek, Michigan and spent two years here. I know it would mean a lot to him if he could hear from somebody who he knew during the war. Especially Ronald Wirick and Marion Smallwood. So if you know my grandpa or know where I could find those two men please e-mail me. I know it would mean a lot to my grandpa and the rest of the family. Thanks!

Comments: My father, Carroll Burgess, was a member of Company C, 32nd Infantry, 1st Battalion. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Letter "V" device for heroic achievement in connection with military operations near Hansaem-ni, Korea, on February 23, 1951. I have a copy of the general order number 250 and it explains that he was a member of a platoon, which was ambushed and pinned down by the enemy. When the friendly forces were running short on ammunition, he moved under intense enemy small arms and automatic weapons fire, with complete disregard for his personal safety, to obtain additional ammunition. He returned with the ammunition and several rifles to replace those, which the men had abandoned in the surprise of the ambush. His movements permitted his comrades to maintain continuous fire on the enemy position, and to withdraw, reorganize and successfully counterattack. We have a picture from the Korean front of Lt. Col. Ted Madden, commander of the 1st battalion, 32nd infantry regiment, congratulating my father after being decorated.

In a later encounter my father received a wound in action against the Chinese and was awarded a Purple Heart medal.

Unfortunately, my father has not been around to relay his experiences to his children. He died in 1959 in a fox hole (literally) on our neighborÂ’s farmland. All we have are his medals and a few mementos.

Unit:

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: My husband and I are searching for any information concerning his uncle, SFC Paul "P.J." Browning of Fouke, Miller Co, AR. He fought in Germany during WWII and again in Korea with the 7th Div, 32nd Inf Reg, F Co. The last picture we received shows him (with his arm in a sling) being awarded a bronze star by Brig. Gen. W.C. Smith, CG 7th Div. P.J. earned the medal for his "heroic actions" during an assault on an enemy emplacement on 12 Jun 1952 near Pong-Gil-Li. The picture was taken near Kumhwa by PFC J.P. Fusco of 7th Signal Co. Photo Sec. No date of the photo was given, but we think it must have been just before he became an MIA.
Uncle P.J. was raised by my father (P.J.'s oldest brother) after both of their parents died. Therefore, since we grew up in the same house, P.J. was more like an older brother to me than an uncle. He was reported MIA on 24 Oct 1952. A website posting and email received from John Hanfelt of his company stated he had heard Paul was killed by an explosion of an artillery round. A shell landed near him and had blown him off a very steep hill. Despite a later search by some of the men of his unit, his body was never found. Does anyone else know anything regarding his death/disappearance or more about his service record?
Some of my family members told me there was a story on the local TV back home in Arkansas a couple of years ago about the return of 35 MIAs from Korea. The story said that Paul's name was listed as a possibility for one of these remains. Our family has never heard what has become of that, and to my knowledge, have never been contacted by the Army regarding his remains. How do we go about finding out if his remains were one of those found? Finally, we would love to hear from any of P.J's friends and men who served with him. We hope some of your responses will help to answer the lingering questions my husband's family has lived with for nearly 50 years. Gone, but not forgotten! Thanks.

Comments: My wife would like to hear from anyone who knew her father Ray Gieda. He was a corporal in company E 32nd infantry. He entered the Army in 1949 and was discharged in 1952. He also was a member of the Old Guard at Arlington National Cemetary. He passed away in December 1978. I never knew my father-in-law, and my mother-in-law doesn't talk about him much, other than to say his picture was in Life or Look when he was in the Old Guard. My sister-in law sent to the national archives, but I think his records were lost in the fire. Any information would be greatly appriciated.

Comments: Pete;

I just now read your msg. on the Korean War Bulletin Board. I did not know your Dad, but I was a Rifle Platoon leader in King Co. and we were relieved by Love Co. in the spring of 53. It was a very active section of the MLR, just west of Old Baldy, and you will find a vivid account of several patrol actions in the same sector in S.L.A. Marshall's book Pork Chop Hill pg.189 "Hexed Patrol" and pg.206 "Doomed Patrol" when the 31st Regt. occupied the same position later in the Spring of 53 after the 32d was relieved. It describes a tragic repetition of some of the mistakes we had made earlier when King and Love Companies were there. The Chinese Army had been firmly stopped in Seoul and pushed back into the mountains well over 30 miles north of the 38th parallel. As a soldier of the 32nd Regt. in 52-53 your Dad's combat was totally within North Korea; helping establish and hold the DML that exists today, soon to be a half century, since 27 July '53.

Both King and Love Companies were together in the bloody July battle of Pork Chop that was the last action of the war by GIs. We were ordered to withdraw by the 8th Army Commander (General Maxwell Taylor) after fragments of five companies, from two regiments (17th and 32nd) were entangled with the Chinese in some bunkers and GIs in others; while our "proximity fused" artillery burst just 20 feet overhead raining steel down onto the tattered sandbag roofs sheltering friend and foe alike; and Chinese rockets and mortars addressed "to whom it may concern" fired directly down from Old Baldy (Baldy was closer to our MLR than Pork Chop; and was higher in elevation). It was near complete chaos in a maze of partially covered trenches on that totally denuded and pulverized hill. Our units had been committed to the action, one Company at a time, under a directive from the Pentagon to wind down the war. The Chinese were determined to hold onto a portion of the hill, probably because of the PR value of that little scrap of hell that just happened to be shaped like a pork chop, jutting out from our MLR into "no-mans-land" amongst the rice paddies. General Taylor countermanded the 7th Division and I Corp Commanders who had engineered that meat grinder; and arranged for an orderly withdrawal at 1600 hours on July 11, 1953; with a convoy of APCs arriving at the base of the hill to safely evacuate all troops, except for a small contingency of engineers to booby trap or demolish those few bunkers remaining somewhat intact; and a couple of volunteers (Love CO Capt. Abraham Gomez and Sgt. Jack Lawson) who maintained covering fire for them). After all that carnage-- Pork Chop remained a vacant graveyard for almost two days before the Chinese noticed that we had withdrawn, rather than reinforced, with that convoy of APCs on the 11th; only then did they move back onto the hill-- just to be greeted with a Battalion plus of Artillery TOT (time-on-target) that caused the whole hill to erupt in a gigantic burst of steel, fire, and dust; repeated periodically until the Cease Fire at 2200 hrs (10 PM) on July 27, 1953. The only mention of the last Pork Chop (6-11 July '53) that I have found is three paragraphs in the US Army Center of Military History volume; Truce Tent and Fighting Front by Walter G. Hermes ( pg. 473).

I would appreciate very much to hear from you about any notes or accounts that your father may have shared with you (no matter how fragmentary) especially if any mention was made of a Lt. Montagnolo who was a friend of mine that was killed in a Chinese ambush shortly after we were relieved by Love Company. I suspect that it occurred along that same rugged finger that extended out to the Yokkok Chon (river) about a thousand yards from our MLR; with knobs labeled Ace, King, Queen, Jack for artillery and mortar barrages-- and night patrol checkpoints. We were restricted by our own mine fields to a narrow path along the crest of this "hog back" which was slippery with plastic communications wire left by previous patrols; that all too often led us directly into a Chinese ambush. There is a very good sketch of this terrain on page 190 of Marshall's book. Rear echelon staff officers who drew up night patrol routes did not seem to realize that check point Jack was actually closer to the enemy's front line than it was to ours; it was on our side of the river, but the river turned sharply to the north, between Chinese held hills just a few yards to the right of Point Jack.

Your father is greatly honored by your effort to contact his old combat buddies. It may also prompt some of we "old soldiers" to jot down some of our experiences which may help to lift the "fog of war" before the erosion of time erases our memories completely-- memories that may have been a little too painful to talk about earlier. I will call your Korean War Project notice to the attention of a veteran that I met from New Hampshire this September at the Korean War Reunion in Virginia whose neighbor served in Love Company in 52-53. He may have known your Dad. It is well that you signed your notice as a "PROUD SON"; Your father's combat service in Korea helped "halt communist armed aggression and it has not been tried since--- Korea also saved the United Nations from the fate of the League of Nations, while encouraging small nations to resist the Communists and keeping Japan outside the orbit of Asiatic Communism--- collective security worked" (Robert Leckie; CONFLICT, History of the Korean War, pgs 397-8).

Sincerely;
