    do you remember anyone that was in E co 707th we were the forward maint bn we worked on the hueys,i worked on a lot of the 7th avn bn choppers, but i have lost contact with everyone

    • admin says:

      I too have lost track of most of the men. Twenty five years ago I ran into my crew chief Dennis Crain at the Hillsboro, OR airport. He was flying through on a UH-1 and I was there for the day as a corporate pilot. He was about to retire. I also had contact for a while with our motor sergeant Dale Malampe. Thanks for checking out the website, I have wonderful memories of Korea and its people.

    I just happened on to this web site and it brought back a lot on memories. I have several pics with the kids in the mess hall at the 7th Avn Bn with some of the soldiers. If you would like them let me know where and how to send them

    Bob Walby, I remember you. I Know we were in Korea together. Then I think fort Carson Colorado. They sent a few of us south to Taegue. Not sure But I remember you talking about driving across Texas with know sleep. As I recall you were a tall blond haired kid. Your name sticks in my mind.

  4. Marion Beaumont says:

    I was assigned to the 7th AVN BN during the period Aug 69 – Aug 70. I served as A Co Commander during the first part of my tour and later in the Battalion Hqs. I enjoyed seeing the pictures and to pick out some old faces I remembered. I have a book, (like a year book) with many of the same pictures plus many more. I plan to dig it out and have a walk down memory lane.

    I was in the 7th Admin co from Dec ’68-Feb ’70. We were just across the wall from the Aviation Bn. Except for the last 6 wks when the new concrete 4 story barracks were completed we lived and worked in those Quonsets. Only the main HQ office was a concrete building.
    A special place. A special people. Proud of America’s role in making South Korea a free and prosperous society.

    Very neat to see the orphanage pictures and Mr Kwak. I was the officer collecting on paydays for the orphanage for the 122nd signal battalion. We spent most Saturdays either playing with the kids or taking Mr. Kwak or his son to the town to buy rice or veggies with the soldiers donations. Was also there when they got their hot water heater for their shower. Your unit also flew me up to Hill 754 on Thanksgiving to our radio site on a scarry landing postage stamp. Good job.

  9. admin says:

    I remember landing on Hill 754. The orphanage is now gone and its in a modern developed area now. Mr. Kwak passed away in 2000 and his son was murdered by a mugger in New York in the mid 70s, after moving there.

    I was at Casey fro Dec ’68- Feb ’70. 7th Admin right across the wall from you guys. My sister and brother-in-law adopted a girl when he came home in ’71 and then twin girls in ’73. My time there is with me always.

    • admin says:

      I’m glad you found the site. Was your niece from Yang Ju Child Care Center? My experience at the orphanage was the icing on the cake for my time in Korea and I often think of it too, especially during this tumultuous time. What I find amazing is the transformation that Dongducheon (as its now known) has gone through. High rises, commuter trains to Seoul and freeways. I haven’t been back but have watched it on Google Earth for many years.
