Julio, Thanks for putting this website together. As someone who served in Korea 30 years after you it is amazing to see the changes that took place from your time to mine and how things continue to evolve there. In some way it is sad to see these places change, but it it gratifying to know what a modern democratic society folks like yourself help protect, to grow into what it is today. Keep up the good work.

Nice to see this site. Came to it by accident looking for some proof that we had a Turkish compound in Korea in the time I was there. After enlisted time...went through ROTC and retired in '94....on for next 16years at USAREUR HQ as civ/contractor/consultant. Still in Germany. Only one I met from BLV was LT McDowell(sp?)...at the post office USARER HQ. He was an LTC and Chief,PAO. Must have been about '86. Best remember 1SG/SGM Jenkins...he was my best guide during some tough years. Only picture from that time that made it was taken in front of one of the HQs of "C" Company around July 65. Feel free to drop me a line. --Peter Yates~~~POCYates@aol.com

Went thru replacement Company then assigned to Charlie Company 1/12 Cav. Spent 6 months there, then transferred to HHC and was trained on and worked with the Anti-Tank (ENTAC) platoon. Remember the "COLD", especially on the range pulling guard. It was cold....Also remember trading "C" Rations for "Porta-Juice" in the field at night. Mess truck would show up early in morning. Coffee, SOS on Toast (with powered eggs), 2 "C Rations" for rest of the day.....Fun had by all.--CW4 James K. Peters~~~46sfca@gmail.com
