Comments: My father served in the Marines in Korea and his older brother was a Master Sergant in the Army. They actually met up over there and a week later my uncle was killed. My dad was his body escort home. It effected him the rest of his life.I proudly served in the Navy from '83 to '86. From one swab jockey to another I must say Thanks for your service and your web page.

Comments: I served with 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division which was in the eastern sector near the Punchbowl when I arrived Feb. 1952. Then we were moved west to the Panmunjom area. Mostly trench warfare as the truce talks were going on, but saw some outpost action. Nice to find this site and read about other old vets.

Comments: Hi, I'm an archaeologist based in Orkney, Scotland, and I'm doing some research into the form and features associated with machine gun pits. I came across this photo on your site:
2RAR troops manning a Bren Mark III in Hill 159 gun pit. (Also note their beloved Owen 9mm Machine Carbine)
and the form of it looks very similar to a machine gun pit that we have excavated in Shetland. It consisted of an 11m long trench on top of a natural mound overlooking the sea, with a probable crawl trench on the landward side of it. A military historian / archaeologist stated that it was probably a Bren or Lewis gun position, probably for air and sea defence. Do you have any more information on machine gun pits at all?

Comments: I am a Viet Nam Veteran and I just wanted to drop a line to say "Thanks" to all of my Brothers-in-Arms from previous conflicts for the patriotism they showed by stepping up to the plate when our country called. I am humbled to even be considered to be a part of the heritage passed on by all of you. May God protect and bless you all.
