    No Captains

    Post by Admin on Wed Feb 23, 2011 8:45 pm

    During my time with the 2nd BN 72nd Armor, 2nd Inf Div (67/68), our BN had 1 line officer who was a Captain. He commanded B Company which at the time occupied Camp Johnson.
    The only other Captains I remember were the Doctors, Dentists and of course the BN Chaplain.
    All other line officers were 1st and 2nd Lieutenants.

    Outside the gates of Pelham was Sonyu-ri. If you went right toward Camp Rose (armor 1/72nd) was a small place called (I believe) Paenae (tankers village). And then way down the road past DIVARTY was Pobwon-ni.

    Was that Kump-sa, or Komp-si or something like that?

    Pugam-ni maybe?

    We the undersigned petition the US Senate, US Congress and the President
    of the United States to enact legislation that makes ALL veterans have equal
    presumption of exposure to
    Dioxins while in the service of the United States at any location or unit. We
    feel that ALL veterans MUST be treated equally with respect to Dioxin exposure
    by the US government and Department of Veterans
    Affairs.






    NOTE: Veterans must also still prove they have a recognized condition,
    that maybe caused by Dioxin exposure, during or after service to get DVA
    benefits.




    Any one 18 can sign.
    If effected vet make sure you add your statement in
    comment area too!
