Korea was one hell of an experience for an 18-year-old kid who had only been shaving 8 months on a daily schedule.--Jerry Brown~~~jerryb123@sbcglobal.net

Comments:

When I first got to Korea I was at C Co 1/38. Went on Patrols in DMZ with duty at GP Barbara and Pvt Danko committed suicide there. We all had to go to Panmunjom for debriefing, also had the duty of sitting in a foxhole in the snow watching for any activity of N. Koreans along the Imjin. I was then transferred to A Co 1/9 So. Camp Custer. I am now going to make a claim for agent Orange. I have diabetes, have had cancer surgery on my right ear and I see the doctor every six months for treatments on my arms. Our first daughter was born mentally retarded. I'm sure they will deny my claim from what I have read they are not helping us Vets. That's all I can say. I'm still proud to have served.--Dennis Hefner~~~dnhef@hotmail.com

WOW! What a flood of memories I am experiencing at this moment, thank you so very much! Last night my four-year-old granddaughter was asking me about the 2nd crest I wear on my baseball cap (12th Cav and First Team) as I told her we were called Blue Lancers. I found myself wondering if after the Cav was replaced by the 2nd Inf Division in '65, they still called the place Blue Lancer Valley. Got a wild hair up my butt and determined to do an internet search today, just on a whim. WOW! I am so glad I did. In those days what you call Easy Queen was called Easy Block and I assume the Radio Hill you mention was probably one of our MDPS overlooking, I believe it was, Libby Bridge towards the 8th Cav--just a guess from my fading memory banks :). It's a mighty long way from Llano Texas to the BLV. This site is on my favorites list now and I'll check it often. Thank you again for this Number One quality job you've done--Red Jordan~~~jordanwarren56@yahoo.com

Hello to all of the great guys I served with in Delta Company and to all you treadheads from the 72nd Armor Div. I remember all those frigid days during the winter whenever I go to the beach here in Florida. I couldn't believe it got that cold and I was raised in New York. I was a Weapon's Specialist, so if you remember bringing your weapons to my shop, you remember, the shop with all the Playboy nude pictures on the walls. Yep, that was me. Drop me a line.--Albert (Joe) Scalzo~~~ironeyes4440@yahoo.com
