What a story behind this image .... voted, Heiko and Helga

Cottonwood, AZ - United States

Danielle Parent, the Building stands for our 72nd Engineer Unit. They built bridges across rivers and once a deep canyon under fire. Had to use a Helicopter to lift the spans over the canyon. The 555th (Triple Nickle) Field Artillery BN which used 105mm the 5 with the crossed rifles is for my unit the 5th Infantry Regiment. All of which make up the 5th Regimental Combat Team. We also had a lot of other units but too many to put on the Plaque of the Memorial at Arlington Cemetery. We had many units which usually are available only at Division Like a Tank Company, Medical Co, Quad 50 Cal machine guns mounted on trucks.. HVY Mortars, Some were attached for various times during the war. The Units on the Memorial served with the 5th, the entire war. Truck Company to move us long distances, sometimes we moved from one side of Korea to the other, usually move through the Unit holding there to attack. HVY Weapons, Rangers, Dog Platoon, at times a 155mm Artillery Unit. etc. Will have to add some of this to the description. The killed in Action for Korea, is not correct. For there were over 8200 Missing, now most of us consider they were killed in action. If they would declare them dead it would put the total over 64,000. Over 6 Million South Koreans also were killed. The total also does not include those killed who were in the other countries who served in Korea with us....If my memory serves me there were 23 other countries. Most Notable in m memory, because they fought next to us at times, were Turkey and Greece.

I have read the comments you wrote and I am trying to related the symbols on your work..Your image is very well presented , very professional and it realy call for respects towards our veterans. I find very chocking that to this day ..the reality from this war is being push aside as it did not really happened! Back to your work, what are the meaning of the numbers 72 on the building, 555 on the canons, and 5 on the guns ..is that the regiment, battalion numbers ? VF
