Looking For Friends Of ASA Korea
This is new. This is trying to put Korean ASA guys in touch this their
CPL Bethel C. Brown, Jr. ("Brownie")
My name is Lynn Wheeling. My dad, CPL Bethel C. Brown, Jr. (nicknamed "Bubba") served in the 330th CRC in Korea.
Based on his DD Form 214, I am assuming that he was there from on or about Oct 52 - Feb 54. I am looking for anyone
who may have served with him.
This project started out when I was trying to get dad the 50th Anniversary Korean Defense Medal. It was then
that I found out that he had never received any of his medals, even though he had requested them several years ago.
Being retired army myself, this infuriated me immensely.
After speaking with dad, this is what he remembers. He was in the 330th CRC and there were only 20 of them
assigned to where he was (according to him in the middle of nowhere). He said that there was a unit not far from
them that had Chinese Nationalist with them. The only other significant recollection he had was that he went
swimming in the Sea of Japan one day when someone went fishing with a stick of dynamite - he couldn't hear anything
for a week!
Based on this information, I started doing some research on the 330th CRC, and there isn't a whole lot of
information out there. I was able to get in touch with a man, Mr. Ernest Olson, who just happened to be the company
clerk for the 330th CRC at the time and he was a wealth of information. I have since found out that he was in Yang
Yang and that the unit was attached (Assigned?) to the 10th Army Corps at the time.
If you served with dad, or know someone who did, I would be greatly interested in contacting you. I am trying to
get this piece of history down on paper, not only for him but also for his descendants. Dad is now 75 years old and
is still going strong. I would love to be able to put him in contact with fellow veterans that served with him.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please contact me with any information you may have regarding this
time in history. Also, thank you for all you did to serve and protect this great country it is very much
Dad is living in Tennessee. I reside in Florida. My e-mail address is email@example.com and my phone number is (352) 854-7065.
