52nd Field Artillery Battalion

I am searching for anyone who may have served with James (Jim) Paul Dart.  He was my sister-in-law's father.  He and her mother separated when she was very young.  She has very little information about him and has never even seen a photo of him.  I have just been able to obtain the military service records for her father.  He was in the 52nd Field Artillery Battalion and also the 24th Infantry Division.

Jim Dart was from San Francisco.  He was a Private First Class in the Army from 7/30/48 through 5/9/52 and fought in land battles in the Korean War.  He also served in the Army again from 6/29/55 through 8/29/58.  Jim Dart passed away in 1976 and there are no surviving family members other than my sister-in-law.  It would mean so much to her to find someone who served in the Army with her father and who could tell her anything about him.

143rd Field Artillery Battalion

My dad was in the 143rd Field Artillery Battalion, Battery B.  He's looking for a couple of his buddies: Harry Smith from Utah and Sidney Perrson from Hales Corner, Milwaukee, WI.  He's 82.  His name is Sgt. Herman J. Brockschmidt and he lives in Lohrville, IA.  Any information is much appreciated.  I've googled and checked Korean War sites.  Any direction would be great.  There is a picture of the three of them on the Casey site.

176th Field Artillery Battalion

I'm searching for any information on the 176th Armored Field Artillery Battalion. I think my grandfather was in this unit but I'm not to sure. I have a old clipboard of his when he served in Korea. His name was Harvey A. Morrow.  On the inside of his clipboard it has handwritten "Btry. C 176th Armd F.A. BN."  His name is stamped on the front, so I know it was his. Now where I get confused is that when I asked my father about it he says that my grand father was in the regular army for 18 years. And he thinks it was the 5th Calvary.  I'm going by his clipboard.  He also received the bronze star medal and on his certificate his serial number in NGxxxxxxxx which to my understanding the NG stands for National Guard.

So my question to you is.. Is there anywhere I can find a list of the men who served in this 176th battalion in the Korean War? Or is there a way to find out what he might have done to receive the Bronze Star medal? Or was this something that the whole battalion received? His certificate reads For Meritorious Achievement In Ground Operations Against The Enemy.

I'm very interested on finding this information.  I was not close with my grandfather due to divorce in my family.   I knew him, but was not close. He passed away in 1993.  I really would like to honor him by pursuing his history and what he accomplished in his life.

Thanks for taking the time to read this ... and any help or advice on where to obtain this information you could give would be great.

189th Field Artillery Battalion

I am a Korea war veteran who served with "B" Battery, 189th Field Artillery Battalion in Korea from March 1953 until November 1953.  I was at Heartbreak Ridge and Sandbag Castle.  If anyone can confirm our human waves attacks at the end of April 1953 near the Sandbag Castle or our other actions, please let me know.  It would mean a lot to verify my VA claim.

Contact: An old soldier, Paul Wong (808) 878-1991 or at my doctor's e-mail address: dr.sword@hawaiiantel.net.
