Comments: I was in the 50th AAA at Suwan, Korea in 1952 and 1953 Sgt. Kurger was my Sgt. in
Suwan. I was gunner on quad 50 on a half-track. We were at the north end of the
airfield. I was there when a B17 over shot the airfield because of damage on a bombing
run. Then was transferred to 30th AAA at Pusan. I was there when half of Pusan burnt.
Our camp was next to a huney well. I was also living in a gun tower. I would like to
hear from any one from there.

Comments: I am looking for information on the unit that my father served with in Korea, the 50th
AAA 1st Marines. He was in the Army but was attaced to this unit. I have many pictures
of him with this unit but he never talked about any thing he did in Korea. When he
died in 1981 I asked for a copy of his records. I recieved them but many pages were
blacked out. Would like to know the history of this unit and see if you are interested
in a copy of any pictures.

Comments: My memories of Korea are that it was all black, gray and white and void of any color. Strange. I don't remember any color. We were stationed on top of a mountain and for the most part, with the exception of R and R, rarely ventured away during the week. Maintenance schedules kept me buy during the week but we had week ends off. On week ends, I remember throwing my carbine over one shoulder and my new Bosley camera over the other and hiking alone down the mountain to Pusan to take pictures. I never saw any action nor did I ever fire my weapon. The cease fire agreement was signed when I was aboard ship headed for Korea.

Comments: A message from Dog Battery member Robert Jackson of Mesa Arizona had an incorrect e-mail address. Would like to correspond with him since it seems he and I were in the same battery. Anymore of you Dog Battery boys, correspond with me.
