I did a search of the National Archives site and Fred Carroll's casualty report came right up, so it
does not look to me like any one is trying to hide something in this case.
The report from the National Archives lists drowning as a contributory cause.
To obtain more information you might want to try submitting a Freedom of Information Act
request to the Department of the Army, Take that casualty report which has Carroll's SSN on it and
submit a FOIA request.
See these URLs for the Army's FOIA request form and information:
You might want to specifically ask for copies of any AR 15-6 investigations or CID reports that were
done. The CID investigates all Army non-combat deaths.

1) Missing; Sgt(?) Fred Carroll
Looking for anyone who may have information on the disappearance of Sgt? Fred Carroll in the
spring of 1978.
Carroll, then assigned to HHC, 1/32nd at Camp Howze,and on temporary duty at Camp Casey, was
last seen on a rafting trip along the Imjin river just west of Camp Howze.
An unnamed member of Carroll's unit believes he either drowned or was captured by North Korean
agents after his raft was swept away by fast currents,and washed ashore near a village just south of

14) What Bridge Was This
From June 1967 to August 1968, I served with the 36th Engineer Group (Combat) in Korea.
During my time there, one of our line companies, the 526th Panel Bridge Company, “rebuilt” one of
the bridges that was destroyed (blown in half) during the ’50 to ’53 war.
I never saw the bridge in person, but was shown photographs of the bridge after the repairs.
The bridge was a concrete “arch” type bridge, originally. After the 526th performed its mission, the
bridge was a concrete arch bridge on the northern side and a panel (erector set type) bridge on the
As I remember it, the bridge was fairly high, crossing a fairly deep gorge. I wish I had kept a photo of
My Question Is; Does anybody know what bridge I am discribing?

10) Chronological History
I am interested in the chronological lost history from Oct 57 - July 65.
I served with in A Co, 728th MP Bn at Hialeah Compound at Pusan from 1958-1959, but have never
found any information during this era, as if we never existed John Kinane
11) Camp Coleridge Barber
I was at Camp Coleridge 1961-62. Does anyone remember the Barber that work there that was named
Suzie. She could have work at another camp after I left. Another barber was Miss Kim, she moved to
Pusan just before I returned stateside in 62. Larry Collins

12) Marines 69-70
I was sent TDY from my unit (HHB 1/17th ARTY) to a Marine unit on some island, either in the Han or
Imjin Rivers, northwest of Seoul, sometime I believe, in the Fall of 69.
AT my unit, I was responsible for all the crypto msgs for our artillery battalion. The only reason I can
think that I was sent there was to provide comms between the Marines and our unit (We were an 8”
I am really hazy on this, even though I was the party involved. I remember being alone, but I never
went anywhere without an armed guard for my “box.” I don’t know how long I was there, but I guess
at least two weeks.
But I don’t remember a thing about what I did there, where I stayed, or who I spoke with. Nothing! I
don’t even remember leaving the island. It was a most bizarre TDY.
Would anyone happen to know what unit this could have been? "James M. Caiella"

13) TAC 1, TAC 2, TAC 3, etc.
1 of the things I have noticed, in dealing with units and compounds, over the years is the use of the
designation TAC along with a number, usually 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, followed by site and another number.
For instance TAC 2 site 36 was an ADA ( Air Defence Artillery) area used by both B and C btrys 2nd
BN 71st ADA. Other ADA units used various sites throughout the Korean Peninsula and, to my
knowledge, all can be found occupying TAC sites.
SO, my question is;
What does TAC stand for and what is the difference between a TAC 1, TAC 2, TAC 5 etc.?

I've tried everywhere else w/o sucess trying to locate a Lt. Frank Olsen who was at B-6-44, HAWK
battery at Kunsan & later at HQ 6/44 battery at Reno Hill during 1968/69.
Does anybody remember him & where he was from?

2) Fire Fight
Was anyone on Site 36 during Pueblo capture when fire fight with North Koreans attached?
I was on BCC watch at midnight when fight happened. 1968, probably March
I don't recall a site named NAKTA. I do remember fortified ROK positions a little west of the DMZ
juncture that were on a hill over looking the river.
There was an incident there in the summer of 69 where the ROKs pinned down and killed 2 North
Koreans at the base of the bluff on the rivers edge right below the ROK positions. The North
Koreans were trying to provide supporting fire with heavy machine guns but the river was close
to 3/4 mile across at that point. I did not see any US Special Forces that day.

Does anyone from 2nd Bn (4th Bn) 44th ADA remember using or having seen Papa Son using a
defoliant around the fence lines in 71---75 or even later?
I have proof of it's use at Camp Page in 73 and can probably assume it was 38th Brigade policy to
use it on all ADA sites. I am trying to get the VA and DOD to extend the years of useage, and places,
in Korea, and would appreciate any help. Answer here or e-mail me at--

15) Easy Queen Radar Site
I was with a group of Air Force personnel from 5th TAC sent TDY from Clark AFB, the Philippines, to
a radar site on what I've been told is Mount Easy Queen. I was there from November 1968 to
February 1969 and again from July 1969 to October 1969.
I believe we stayed at Camp McGovern between our shifts on the mountain. We used an Army
helicopter to take us up to the radar site on the mountain when the road was impassible. I know
when we were up on the site we could look down at a camp on the opposite side from the DMZ and
see howitzers lined up facing our way.
Things such as a name or pictures or anything else someone may remember would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you very much.
