Hi- I served in the 6th Battalion 12th artilary at Camp ST Barbara. I was a message center clerk at Battalion headquarters for half of my tour and a Redeye missile gunner the last half. Walked the DMZ on patrol. I was at the camp all of 1969 and part of 1970. I would like to here from anyone who served during that time. Some of the people I remember (names) are: Henry Stecdman, Steve Hylton, Wes Meyer, McShane, Rick Morgan and Richard Lehn. I also found many more of you that served at the time in my 1969-70 annual. My email is, address 49781 Royal Pine RD, Perham, MN 56573 and cell number 218-298-0501.

I used to have lots of pictures from Camp St. Barbara but don't know what happened to them. I was a pll clerk in the motor pool which was closer to the gate. My sergeant was Jerry Stackhouse. There was a mechanic with the last name of Nowling. I had a Korean driver named Sgt. Moo and we would pick up parts about once a week for the motor pool . He seemed to take a lot of short cuts off the main road and once we turned our three quarter ton truck over. Fortunately he spotted a ROK troop and summoned help getting it back on the road. We were lucky that there wasn't any apparent damage. The pll clerk before me was a black guy named Miller from the Detroit area. My tour there was from Jan 1968 - April 1969. I had been in small arms infantry at Fort Ord California but ended up in a motor pool in Camp Santa Barbara in an Artillery unit. I suspect that the North Korea capture of the US Pueblo may have led to more infantry being diverted and I was one of the lucky ones.

I spent the next two years in Kassel, and returned to the states at the end of December 65. After a few years I reenlisted in the Army Reserve {Petroleum Supply}, and in 78, I switched to the National Guard (Military Intelligence). With the MI I spent a lot of time in Germany again. I stayed in the MI until my retirement in 2000.

UI was assigned Hq Co, Survey section. March 68 and stayed until June of 68 when ,as assigned as access personel, I and perhaps two duce and a halfs worth of men , were transfered to the 7th ID .
I do remember a Sargent Gutierrez , and two sargents 1 e7 and 1 e6.
2 sp5,s... Smitt and Hanson.
One night a patrol in the yamas North of us,a man had broken his leg.The flare ignited a goodly fire in the mountian. Old , badly out of shape , Sargent Gutierrez (40 -42), was ordered by the CO to lead a detail to fight the fire. He must have pissed off the CO and this was his punishment.
I aslo remember the wonderful mess hall with the baked goods every day.
The barracks were made of brick and had forced air heating and I think air conditioning.

I aslo remember a tall Black man in the same survey section, last name Banks, who saved me one night from leting loose my rage on a guy named Beck, who had challenged me to a fight.
Poor Mr. Beck was severly beaten and would have recieved more, had it not been for Bank's very wise intervention. Thus saving me from a possible court .martial.
Although some excess personnel stay on, the next day I was called out of formation and I was choosen for reassignment.
My self , I went to the 2/8 artillery assigned to the liaison section,eventually to accompany the Division's FO to all of our battalion's fire missions ( into all the ranges ) and he called missions for other battalions as well.

I served at Camp Colbern from Jan. '68 to Feb. "69. First as Co. A XO's driver, then in the post office. Drove into Seoul everyday to get the mail. Great duty! Can't believe it was 50 years ago. The photos look nothing like it was in '68. Amazing to see a freeway tollbooth there now. There were only narrow 1-1/2 lane roads back in the day. Great fun in a jeep, though.

I was stationed at Camp Colbern 89-90. Loved that area. Hiking the mountain and running in the ville. 36L was my MOS. What memories this brings back. Probably one of the best years of my military career. Delizia was my married name at the time. But have my maiden name back “Teall”.
