Comments: My father-in-law fought with the 65th in Korea. He does not speak much about his service there, but I have reason to believe he was a squad leader and may have earned a medal that was never awarded. Anyone having information please e-mail us at ragc@comcast.net. His nickname (may have been post-war) is Yuyin.

Records reveal life of service, valor
--------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------
The only evidence of your father’s time in service is a Combat Infantryman’s badge, but just imagine finding out he had also earned a Bronze Star, a Purple Heart and an additional fifteen awards unbeknownst to you or your entire family. Such was the case for the Cousins family after requesting his military records.

Master Sgt. Norman M. Cousins was in World War II and the Korean War but no one was really aware of what that entailed until Kevin L. Cousins, his son, went through the motions of finding out.

“Believe it or not - there are a lot of veterans entitled to awards who are not even aware of it,” said Lewis Wright Jr., a veterans advocate service officer in the nationally accredited Northeast Chapter of the 24th Infantry Regiment Combat Team Association Inc. in Willingboro.

You too may be entitled to awards you’re not even aware of. How does it happen? Sometimes a service member is discharged before the paperwork accompanying an award is finished or filed. Other times, service members do not realize they’ve been awarded, and never inquire especially after the post-traumatic stress of combat. But, if you’re looking for retirement points and want to double check, or you want to be accurate for yourself or a family member, there are ways to do it.

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the formal depository for records of military personnel who were discharged from the U.S. Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard. If you are a veteran or the next-of-kin to one, you are entitled to order copies of military records by filling out a Standard Form 180. The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) subsidiary of NARA is where all official requests for records should be directed.

Regular means of obtaining records were not an option for the retired Master Sgt. who wasn’t able to gather his records himself. Norman M. Cousins has one more battle to fight; he has Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, with the National Privacy Act requiring his signature, his son was lucky enough to have his participation in the fight. With the help of Wright, who realized the importance of Cousins’ particular situation, he was able to submit a petition request to Congressman Jim Saxton.

“It’s very important for the family to realize what he’s been through,” said Kevin L. Cousins, the senior pastor at the Beacon of Hope Church in Browns Mills. “When I discovered how many awards he had really earned it gave me a better understanding of what he’d been through,” said Cousins, who noted his father only spoke of his service once to him for an hour and his father found that very difficult. “These men fought for the freedoms that we have today. Their experiences are important; and much of the history that they have experienced is going with them (in death) — and is gone now.”

“There are avenues that you can pursue — it’s very, very difficult (doing it yourself),” said Wright, who has been through the process before with his own father’s records and the veterans he helps everyday.

No matter the means you use to recover your records — consulting a veterans officer or doing it yourself — diligence and patience are required.

According to the NARA Web site, the turnaround time for a request of records vary depending on the request. Currently they receive 5, 000 request a day and are backlogged to 150,000 requests already. On average most request take 4 to 6 weeks. If you have not received a response send an email to orderstatus@nara.gov or call Customer Service Center at 1-(800)- 234-8861.

Regardless of the wait, you might agree with the Cousins and find it worth it. “It’s closure for me and my family; it should inspire other veterans,” he said.

And you might find the rifle of your fathers combat Infantryman Badge aiming you in the direction of a life of service and honor like this:

The Bronze Star, the Purple Heart, a Good Conduct Medal, the American Campaign Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign medal with one Bronze Service Star, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, the WWII Victory Medal, the Army of Occupation Medal with Germany clasp and Japan clasp, the National Defense Service Medal with one Silver Service Star, the Korean Service Medal with one Silver Service Star, the Combat Infantryman badge, the Philippine Liberation Ribbon, the United Nations Service Medal, the Honorable Service Lapel Button for WWII, the Expert Badge with Carbine Bar, the Sharpshooter Badge with Machine Gun Bar and with Rifle Bar and the Army Retired Lapel Button.

To obtain a Standard Form 180, there are several options according to the Web site:

Download electronically from the NARA Web site (in .PDF format);

Order the form through the NARA Web site;

Write to the National Personnel Records Center, 9700 Page Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63132;

Use NARA’s Fax-on-Demand System;

Call the Fax-on-Demand System at (301) 837-0990 from a fax machine (using the handset). Follow the voice instructions, and request document number 2255.

Comments: Greetings to the old soldiers and their families. As usual, I find this site by accident, since I had lost hope of finding info on the 65th. It's a shame that this medium was not available before 1988. That was the year my father, Angel M. Machado-Escalera, of Camuy, Puerto Rico, passed away. He was only 62. Too young to have left us. The story is all too familiar: A veteran soldier (1944-1964) who talked little of what he had seen. A lot of us children of the Borinqueneers are now fathers and grandfathers. We served also in the service, or protecting others as cops or firefighters. We all risk our lives one way or another, just to pass on into the quiet darkness of the forgotten.
Don't forget. And ask questions. And you viejos: Tell the story. Tell the story now, before it is too late and you leave us wondering what really happened in your life. It is painful, and horrible. War always is. But you have to tell the story, or you will leave a lot of us spending the rest of our lives looking for information about you. Like me. Dad was a memeber of the group that received the Presidential Unit Citation. I just don't know why, because we lost a lot of things during ensuing years. I can't even get a service history. At least I have his DD214.
My respect, my love, and my honor to all of you.

Comments: Hello,

My father served with the 65th Infantry Regiment in M Company from 1951-1953 as a Corporal. His name is Ramiro Rivera Martinez, he is still alive (73) and well. He was one the few that knew english fairly well and after 6 months as a
machine gun infantryman, served as an interpreter between the officials and other
members of the company. He doesn't talk much about the war and after these many years doesn't remember a lot of names from the top of his head, but if anybody remembers him please send me an e-mail to the address provided here and I will make sure he gets it. I would really like to know if the other soldiers that served with him on the 3-men machine gun team are still alive and remember him.

Best Regards and God Bless. Thank you for everything you did for us. We are extremely proud!!

Comments: I am the son of retired LTC Tomas H. Guffain, then company commander of F Co, 2nd Bn, 65th Inf, 1950-51. I am looking for verification of information obtained through the www.borinqueneers.com website. On March 31 or April 1, 1951, Company F was given the task of taking Hill 398 near Sogyonchon, Korea. They successfully took that hill. That day my father received the Silver Star for his actions in taking that hill. To my surprise, according to borinqueneer.com, 5 other members of Company F received the Silver Star for that action on that day. Also, 8 other members of Company F received the Bronze Star that day. If this information is true 14 members of Company F distinguished themselves for bravery and gallantry that day taking Hill 398. If this is true, this is a story that needs to be told in detail, for this a truly a day of heroism for the brave Borinqueneers, bringing glory not only to their company but for their Regiment as well. Why have we not heard more about Hill 398 if so many distinguished themselves that day?

According to borinqueneer.com the following from Company F received the Silver Star in action on Hill 398, March 31-April 1,1951:

Capt Tomas H. Guffain
1st LT Smith B. Chamberlain
Master Sgt Pedro Rodriguez
Sgt Ismael Jimenez Hernandez (KIA)
Private 1st Class Tomas Rosa Claudio
Private 1st Class Juan H. Santiago

Those receiving the Bronze Star from Company F for action on March 31, 1951:

Sgt 1st Class Luis A Benitez
Sgt 1st Class Alfredo Malave
Sgt Ralph A Chinea
Cpl Pascual Melendez
Cpl Julio Hernandez Torres
Pfc Jose Morales Roman
Pfc Gregorio Pagan Roque
Pvt Manuel Reyes Escobar

Here are the heroes of March 31 and April 1,1951. I am looking to verify the accuracy of this information. Were there 6 documented acts of gallantry under fire that day garnering Silver Stars won by Company F taking Hill 398? Were there 8 documented acts of bravery under fire that day garnering Bronze Stars won by Company F taking Hill 398? If so, I would like as much information as possible so this story can be told.

By the way, my dad is still living in Orlando, Florida. He is 85 years old and very proud of his service with the 65th Infantry during World War II and Korea, and of the men who served with him in the glory years of 1950-51.
