I just wanted to drop a line to thank all Korean War veterans for their bravery, courage, and service to our nation. You are NOT forgotten.

The website is fabulous. We are using your information to help our daughter with her 8th grade history project. Her grandpa was in Korea in 1953. She interviewed him for the project and is gathering background info about the war. Thanks for working on this great treasure trove of knowledge and first-hand accounts.

Admin reply: Thanks very much for your feedback.

Hello, was wondering where I might find a list of Marines sent over to Korea. My late father was there, never talked much about his service, and I am researching his assigned areas of combat. He was in a Marine Recon unit, a scout/sniper, and I was too busy with my own career in the Navy to think to ask him specific details such as, what unit were you attached to? Where in Korea did you patrol? Who was your CO? What caliber rifle did you use? I'm sure regretting it now.

Admin reply: James,

The only list of Marines who fought in Korea is of those who came back in a box, if at all. Sorry.

If you want to just understand your dad's ordeal, to understand him and possibly your own potential a little better, I suggest you read
Dark Horse Six. http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Horse-Six-Memoir-1950-1951/dp/0932572421

It's rare, and correspondingly high price even for used issues, but that's good because you won't be likely to lose it, and your own kids will benefit from reading it some day. I wrote one of the reviews, and can attest that it is the real McCoy.

I just got a Caliber 45 Colt cutomatic from a friend. Problem is, I don't know how to use it. :!thinking:

Admin reply: This should be all you need, apart from some serious practice on your local NRA-sponsored pistol range.

I have used this website for several years, always in the past for a particular name, but the last 2 years I have been compileing a list of KIA's now including Casualties, your site was my main source and with Korean War Project in Dallas Texas along with American Battle Fields I have been able to compile a "Book" much too large to print but I offer it "FREE" for Download or on a CD, as a Download is just too large of a file for the average Computer internet source, so I have broken it up into State files of which can be downloaded individual State or Territory. I then using the American Battlefield create a one page Memorial for a relative, classmate of just a friend of one on the list, and I email them the "Memorial" FREE. I have created several hundred starting with my Classmates of which covered the years 1947 t0 1954 as 411 served and 8 were killed. So that is what I d and why.

That is a very nice thing to do. Would you like me to link your Guest Book entry to an appropriate location in my Casualty pages? If so, can you suggest specifically where you'd like the links placed?

Happy Armed Forces' Day :)

Hi Bert,
I'm not even sure how I arrived at your web site,but I did find your experiences very amusing.You do have a talent for writing... taking a subject few people,such as myself, know little about and make it interesting.I did spend some time in Korea from mid 1951 to January 1953 on several VHF Radio Relay sites. Uncle Sam said I was a field radio repairman but I was mostly a "tube duster.".... Regards, Harry
