Are all FA units in Korea in Area I? Anybody have any good current experiences with any units on the ROK?
Yes, all FA units in Korea are assigned to 2d Infantry Division in Area I.
I left in 2003, and alot has changed since then, so no current experiences to help you.
I left in March 85.I've often thought of Returning and checkin to see if Camp Stanley is still there.
hey whats up fires artillery units are at casey
1/38 ans 637 any way.
All Guns are at Casey???For all of Korea???
Can anyone Tell me if Camp Stanley is still there???
Yes, Camp Stanley is still there. 1/38FA and 6/37FA are at Camp Casey, both MLRS. 1/15FA is at Camp Hovey (155mm SP).
Gary, its good to see someone who was in the ROK as long ago as I was...I left Camp Page in February 85 (I understand that Page is now closed)
I was in a FA unit (Weapons Support Detachment WSD-K) in Chun Chon. WSD-K was disbanded also - unusual unit - FA but we had females (me) and the CO was a LTC. Lots of good memories.
I was in Korea 4 times, with the last one being in 82. Great memories. We were all along the DMZ back then, with Casey being considered rear area
We had the big 8 inch and 175mm SP then.
On my 1st tour, we had to travel south to go to Rodriquez Range, and Casey was a 1 hour drive south. All the roads from Casey's gate 2 north, were gravel. I was a truck driver the first tour, and enjoyed driving all over the area north of Seoul. My last tour the traffic had got so bad, I didn't want to get on the roads if not needed.
Finnally someone that was there when I was...lol..Email me through here and we'll chat...I left in March 85.
I was in a 155 Self Propelled Unit at Stanly....1st of the 15th...Bravo Bulls.
1/15th moved??? where is Hovey???Neverr heard of it.Must be a new Base.
I was at Stanley once also. Have a web page with some pictures.
If any of you have any you wish to add to it, email them and I will add them
I served with the 2ID from Jan 73-Jan 74. If my memory is correct all Artillery units at that time were at Camp Stanley except for two, the 6/36 or 37 and my unit the 2/17 which was at Camp Pelham. I now understand that Camp Pelham is now known as Gary Owen and the 2/17 is now at Camp Hovey.
Camp Stanley is now mainly where 2ID inprocessing occurs. 6/37 is at Camp Casey and is a MLRS unit. 2/17 is no longer here, they went to Iraq and are now CONUS. 1/15 is at Camp Hovey now.
I would have guessed certain changes. At the time I was with the 2ID all in and out processing was done at Casey which then was the Division HQ. I understand that the HQ is at Camp Red Cloud?
Are Camps Greaves, Edwards and Howze still in existence?
Camp Howze was in a scenic location. On a hill near rice fields and a royal tomb.
hedllo there ROK73 yes i was in DIVARTY in 2002. alot has changed again there is no more DIVARTY DIVARTY is now 210th fires brigade. and all of the arty is now at casey. CRC is still the head quarters of the 2id camp stanley has WRC and combat support units occupy most of camp stanley
Hovey is at the *** end of Casey, further from the ville in Dongduchon - basically it is Casey, just a longer bus ride to the P/X and a second gate to drive through. Only one guns battalion remains in Korea, 1/15. I was with A Battery over the summer for CTLT. The other artillery is, as mentioned, Fires Brigade, all MLRS. Hovey also has the Cav stationed there, along with Brigade HQ, with Infantry and Armor stationed at Casey.
Is the "Turkey Farm" still in existence? This was the village pronounced Yong Ju Gol. As I recall it was known as the Turkey Farm since a lot of poultry was raised there, but to GI's it was more well known for something else of greater notoriety.
Well, I didn't hear anything about a "Turkey Farm," nor Yong Ju Gol. I can tell you, however, that there has been a crapload of turnover in the ville, with whole sections of businesses being closed down and reopened with less of a focus on... "turkeys" i guess. All the places in the ville are best known for drinky girls that basically will talk to you and hang all over you in the hope of getting some high tips from you or snagging themselves a highly paid Yankee boyfriend to get them out of debt to their owner. The Army's been cracking down on anything more than that in response to human trafficking and STD/VD issues(not that you couldn't find one if you really wanted to).
