Comments: My father was a medic in the Punchbowl from 1951-52 with the 1666 Med Co, 5th Inf Reg. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who may have known him or served in that time and place. Like many Korean War veterans, Dad maintained a 'code of silence' about his time there, although he occasionally let slip a few details: being holed up under friendly fire, administering placebo instead of morphine due to risk of overdosing the wounded, walking single file always to avoid landmines. I have several pictures he took, including a view from one of the hills overlooking the Punchbowl.
