Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Comments: Went to korea from 2nd BG 8th Inf Fort Riley Kansas in May of 1961. We were assigned to 2nd BG 17 Inf on May 61 to Feb 62. The unit broken up and I was reassigned to 31st Inf., in Camp Casey until Aug or Sept. 1962. I have some great memories and some bad memories. One of our platoon members, Childers drowned while swimming during a rare break in routine, a company picnic. We were in the field almost every week, practicing war, without ammo. Life in barracks was in quanset huts with two space heaters, both running red hot on the colder nights. Mickey mouse boots and white uniform covers were other winter memories. I still get cold when I remember the marches in winter. I can also remember the holes in the perimeter fence behind the huts and visits during the night.

I left the "LaRochelle France U.S. Army" face book page, because of Censorship of my postings. Which was completely uncalled for. There was nothing wrong with them except in the eye of the Censor. I was in France 3 years, learned to speak the language, and my wife and I had our first child there at Chinon. We love France. We have been back to visit 3 times. I was in charge of 63 Frenchmen and we traveled from Brittany to Bordeaux closing Army bases and NATO sites. I was just talking on the telephone with friends in France 3 days ago. I have many photos to trade.
