Since I was ranger qualified and with my CO's permission, I was allowed to volunteer for occasional rotational DMZ patrols with the 1/9th MANCHUS.

Was stationed there from Feb 84 to Jan 85.

Training and NBC NCO while working in Commo
with SFC Beaton an Sgt Hackley. I Tae Won
never closed in those days. We had a bus that left the NCO club and went to Yong Son.
Here is a question for you all. If you were at
Mercer, who was Mr Yu and what was different about him. When I was at Dix briefly, ran into our SGM from that time. At the club of course.
Returned in 90 but was in 41st Sig at MARS in

Comments: When I got to Camp Edwards West we were still sleeping in qaunset huts. It wasn't until 2 months there the new barracks were built. Anybody remember ration cards? You'd buy shampoo, cigs, coffee, tang, and jack daniels black label and sell it to mamasan with one arm in the village of Yong-te-ri for three times what you paid. Of course she'd pay you in won. How about Yong-ju-gol? Short time $10, overnight $20? And the overnight came with TV to watch Johnnie Carson and all the ramyan with egg you could eat! But don't be out after curfew, you'd lose your overnight pass. Once ina while we'd get a 3-day pass to go to Camp Casey or Yongsan. I used to cover MAC meetings at Pamunjam as an on call medic in case the cabbage heads from the North got stupid. We couldn't wear BDU's because it was a sign of war. But they could spit on us and call our Mothers names. We had to take the white ambulance and wear our old green fatigues. To date I lost my kidneys, I think because of too much podoju, gin-ro, and silvac... Oh, I'm making myself sick! Got a transplant in 1987, it just failed in April of 2004. Waiting for another one. God Bless you all who served in the ROK!!!

Comments: I spent a total of 4 years in the R.O.K. Those years were fun yet very long. My first tour was with C Co. 1/31 Inf at Camp Howze (from Nov 84 to Nov 85). It was probably one of the best units while I was in the Army. Later on (Jan 87 to Jan 89) I was assigned to A co. 1/31 Inf (changed to A co. 1/5 Inf). Without a doubt the best Company Commander I ever had was CPT James B. Baldwin. I met him later on at Ft. Benning (94 or 95) He was then a Major working out of BLDG 4. Best XO was 1LT Joseph Sullivan.. learned a lot from that guy...LTC David Hunt was one of the BN CDRs on Camp Howze... years later I saw him on TV was a FOX news commentator. My last tour of duty in the R.O.K. was with HHC 1/506 Inf on Camp Greaves... from Jan 92 to Jan 93. The CSM was Fitzpatrick... he would become the 2nd ID CSM... I remember some of the people who left messages on this website.. it is a very good way of contacting old friends... everyone also needs to visit the imjinscout.org website.. if anyone wants to contact me... feel free to do so.... I remember the 1984 (NOV 23 ?) DMZ incident...of course no one back home heard about it... "RAISE UP" !!!

Comments: Richard Hertz (that can't be your real name), I saw your posting below on the Korean War DMZ pages. You certainly have summed up the Korea experience in the mid-eighties nicely. Which unit were you with? I was in the 1/38 Inf which later was renamed the 2/503 Inf.

I have served for decades, but I can say without a doubt, that the Army was at its peak in 1986-87 at the height of the Ronald Reagan defense build-up. The incoming soldiers were of the highest quality, we had more money then we could spend, more ammo then we could shoot, and in the 2ID, more time to train than we had tasks to train on. The infantry battalions also had a real-world mission for a couple of months each when they rotated to the DMZ. We trained hard and partied even harder. Sadly, the Army has gone mostly downhill after that.

Comments: Fond memories of Camp Hovey and Toko-Ri (Kwangamdong)1986 and 1987.

My riends, I remember no personnel was entitled to a pass until they received their Korean Drivers License, with this incentive I studied hard and got it first try. Going out the Toko Ri gate the first time and showing my pass, (what the heck were the ad hoc gate guards called again)and out I went with a buddy from Ft Carson. That night I hit most of the places I would call home for the next year, first Scotties for a kettle and then, Grand Illusion Club, Sunshine Club, Rose Club, Ace Club, New Seoul Club,Rose Club, Oasis Club, and Hovey Chicken for the nastiest chicken and spuds ever. Never mind Team Spirit, Bear Hunt, and all the bullshit trips to the Chorwon Valley. From a purely selfish point of view it was the best year ever. And I hate to give the Army credit for it, but there it is. What a fantastic group of soldiers, some top notch NCO's, and the ubiquitous career oriented officers. These guys were at their best, in the field or downrange.

Comments: Hi,

I am looking for SSG (Ranger) Callahan who served at the JSA on the DMZ in Korea from 89 to 90. I was a PFC in the 1/506 at Liberty Bell. My name was PFC Olden. You were also one of my Drills at Ft. Benning.

I met up with you in Korea while checking IDs on the South Gate of Freedom bridge. We went into the Village and raised hell;)
