I was stationed at the Kumo Ri Maintenance Center with Co A 4th Maint. Bn. I was the Training NCO and Battalion Draftsman. I have viewed the pictures posted from Terry Linton, who was with Company D at the other end of the compound. Many of the faces were familiar since we shared the EM club together and spent our evenings drinking 3.2 beer and losing our change to the slot machines in the club. At the time that I was there, there were no buildings between us and Ui Jong Bu. Only rice paddies.

July 1, 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the 2IDs return to Korea after the cease fire in the Korean War. The 2ID played a major role in the Korean War and it was appropriate that the Division return to continue to play a major role in guarding Freedoms Frontier.
On that day in July, the 1st Cavalry Division was reflagged as the 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Howze which was Division HQ at the time. The 2nd Indianhead Division Association is organizing a return trip for 2IDA members that were present at the reflagging and for other DMZ veterans that would like to go. We anticipate a group of about 25-30 and are still working out the details. We are working on the eligibility for participation. We are beginning a major fundraising effort to help offset the cost of the trip for the returning veterans and need to know the level of interest in this trip. The tentative plan is to depart Los Angeles about June 26 or 27, 2015 to return about July 3. You will need a current passport. If you are interested, please let us know at Your e-mail is not a commitment, but merely an expression of interest. The leadership of the active 2ID has generously agreed to help with planning the celebration events and perhaps some tours of the area. The 2ID Commanding General and Command Sergeant Major are already at work This can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please let us know now so we can continue our planning.

Our battle group (1st BG 28th INF, I think...the Nittany Lions as we were called) was formed at Ft Riley, KS (1st Inf Div) in June 1960 with all leadership positions filled and a few cadre personnel to assist in the formation of all of the HHQ Co, all Companies A thru E and a Combat Support Co. Basic and Advanced Infantry Training was conducted and in May 1961 we shipped via train and troop ship to Inchon, Korea. We took a train to Ui-jon-bu (7th Div HQ) and were then trucked to Camp Kaiser near Un-chon-ni. I was transferred to the 3rd Inf in 1962 when each of the battle groups personnel were reassigned that effectively ended the Overseas Unit Replacement Program in Korea. I can be reached at if anyone wishes to reach me.

I served at Camp Kaiser from about June 1961 (we arrived shortly after the overthrow of Syngman-Rhee by Chung He Park) until September 1962. Our battle group participated in the OVUREP program in use at that time. Not so surprisingly, the program ended in '62 some time and all the battle group personel were reassigned in-country.

Hi Bruce: Many times I passed thru Camp Santa Barbara going the back way up to Camp Kaiser. One time I turned over my jeep coming around a curve when I noticed a tank turret coming around the corner of a hill. My only choice was to head into the rice paddy. Lucky I was not hurt. Had to replace a couple of supports on the roof and canvas. The motor pool Sgt. was not happy. I was in charge of the 127th Film Exchange at Kaiser. I was TDY for 12 months there good duty but awful cold. 1958-1959.
