Comments: I applied for AO three years ago and was denied last year. They said I was not there. I have appealed providing a copy of my Hostile Fire Pay Orders. The VA has not responded to my notice of disagreement to their decision.

My Congress Women requested copies of the Daily reports for the Battalion and Line Companies for the period of 1970 -1971. The Department of the Army did not provide the requested information. Instead they provided and bureaucratic letter saying nothing.

I do not see how they can deny anyone that can provide copies of their Hostile Fire Pay Orders. The only way one received hostile fire pay was to cross the Imjin River into the areas that agent orange was used. If you do not have copies of your Hostile Fire Pay orders request a copy of your military records including pay records. They will show Hostile Fire Pay if your received it.

All of those that were in the 2nd Engineer Battalion 1970 - 1971 need to ban together in an effort to demonstrate that we are the engineers that the VA manual says they must consider impacted by AO. Note I have found all kinds of 2nd Engineer documentation for the 1968 - 1969 period.

Comments: On behalf of my Grandfather (Retired Army Captain, WWII), I am looking for his brother (my Great Uncle) Corporal Laurence O'Dea, Service Number: RA16328122, B Company, 2nd Engineer Combat Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division. He was reported Missing on Dec. 1st, 1950 while engaging with the Chinese Communist Force during a move from Kunu-ri on the Chongchon River south toward Sunchon. Corporal O'Dea is referenced in Field Search Case #0322F.

I have heard that his remains have been positively ID'd but are not being released due to Political tensions in North Korea. I am not sure about the validity of this report, however.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Comments:

I awoke this morning to this message in my inbox. 1Lt.

Charles Chuck Henson served in the 2nd Engineer Battalion, 2nd

Infantry Division during 1968-69 in Korea. I was appointed in

January, 1969 to take his place as Battalion Maintenance Officer

when Chuck rotated back to the States. It wasn't until 41 years

later that I reconnected with Chuck and learned that we lived

only a few blocks from each other.







Chuck, like many of us from the 2nd Engineers and others who

served during the 2nd Korean War, suffered from the effects of

Agent Orange Poisoning. Since 2006, Chuck battled with Chronic

Lymphocytic Leukemia (also called CLL), an incurable cancer.

When he contacted me in 2010, he had no idea that he was exposed

to Agent Orange in Korea. I worked with him to gather the

evidence of his exposure and got him connected with the Georgia

Veterans Service Officer serving our county to get his claim

started. After battling with the VA for nearly 3 years, he was

finally granted Service Connection at 100% P and T just over 2

months ago.







Agent Orange has taken another good man and Brother. Through

the entire time Chuck was fighting with his illnesses, he did

all he could to help and encourage other Vets from Korea,

especially 2nd Engineers. When we learned of one of our own men

who was in his final days in hospice and had only a distant

cousin as family, Chuck stepped up and provided a substantial

financial gift to help fund my trip to Montana to be with this

Soldier is his last days. That is the man Chuck Henson was.







In Korea, Chuck served with dignity and great pride. He was a

tough, demanding but fair leader and had the respect of his

superiors as well as his subordinates. If his men were working

late to keep our equipment running, Lt. Henson and his assistant

WO Jack Proctor were there with them. He was truly an officer

and a gentleman.







I will be attending his Memorial Service at his property a few

mile from here where he hosted annual caving events.

Understandably this is a very difficult time for his Wife Patty

and for his daughters, so I have not included his email address

here. If, however, any of you who receive this wish to share a

message to his family you are welcome to send them to and I will print and deliver them next

Saturday.







Please take a moment to send up a prayer for Chuck's family for

strength over their loss.







Thank you.







Phil Steward,

From:



Subject: Passing of Chuck Henson



To: pesteward@hotmail.com







Gentlemen:







This is Patty Springer, Chuck's wife. I found your email

addresses on his computer this morning while searching to find

those good souls who helped him win his disability fight with

the VA. Yours are the two names I could find.







I am so sad to tell you he passed away Friday, April 26th at

12:15 p.m. Although we cannot know for certain, it seems most

likely that overwhelming infection brought about from his

leukemia and recent treatments is the cause.







I thank you -- sincerely and with much humility -- for the

assistance and guidance you provided to him in obtaining his VA

benefits. He had recently received the phone call and letter

that he had been approved for 100% disability. He felt

vindicated.







I feel lost. He's my everything.







Chuck desired to be cremated and not have a traditional funeral.

Instead there will be a memorial and celebration this coming

Saturday, May 4th starting at noon on our property on Lookout

Mountain off Hwy 157 at Old State Rd. I plan to contact the VA

office in Lafayette tomorrow to arrange for honor guard if

possible.







Please come to celebrate Chuck if you can. I would like to meet

you, shake your hand(s), and personally thank you for your help.







Sincerely, thank you.

DEFENDERS OF KOREA
We are the men who guard Korea
Earning our meager pay,
Guarding the people with millions
For about three bucks a day.

Out of the windswept mountains,
Korea is the spot.
Fighting the terrible windstorms
In the land that GOD forgot.

Out in the brush with our carbines,
Eating and drinking the dust
Doing the work of a chain gang,
Too damn tired to cuss.

No one cares if we are living,
No one gives a damn.
For we are soon forgotten
Tho we belong to UNCLE SAM.

All night the dust keeps flying,
It is more than we can stand
Hell folks, we're not convicts
We're defenders of our land.

When this short life is over
And we have worries no more.
We will do our first parade
On the bright and golden shore.

Then ST. PETER will greet us,
And lloudly he will yell
Come on you men of Korea
You have pulled your stretch in HELL.

Dad arrived in Korea in 1950 or 1951 and discharged in 1953. He started out as 2nd Infantry Division he was injured and spent either Thanksgiving or Christmas in the 8228 MASH "hospital" receiving rehabilitation. Upon release from 8228, he was sent to the 2nd Combat Engineers. He met and befriended Bill Tallon and stayed in the same bunker as Bill. Dad says he didn't become too friendly with fellow soldiers, "self preservation, as you never knew who was going to still be around tomorrow".
Dad served under General Fry for a time. He received a purple heart and was supposed to receive a Silver Star. He returned home on a ship, possibly the Hope Ship to the San Fransico bay. He was given a "state room" and invited upper ranked men who were staying bellow to go and use the room.
Anyone who may remember him, PLEASE contact me.
My name is Ruth my phone number is 530-366-2326.
Thank you so much.
