My Personal Hero
Mar 1950-Dec 1950 | Ft Sill OK and Korea
I knew Irv at Ft Sill where we were both 2d Lts withh Battrey A, 17th Field Atillery Battalion. We were close friends and many times when I would pick him up in the morning to drive to the post. Irvhad a difficult time awaking in the morning. I had his permissomn to gop ionto his house and roust him from his bed. He would grab his uniform and button up and shave while we drove to the post. Her and his wife Dorene had two young boys. In the afternoon when we stood Retreat I noted Irv would usually shed a few tears. He was a very proud American.
In late July or early August the battalion was shipped to Korea. We were on the General Pope , a troop ship.We both remained in A battery until about October when the Battlion assigned Irv as the Battalion Survey Officer. He did not like this assignment as he wanted to kill as many of the enemy as possible. He asked me to join him in requestying asn assignment as a Forward Observer with the 1st Cavalry Division. This did not appeal to me so he requested he be transfered imediately.
This led to his death as a forward observer- the job he wanted to do. He was the most loyal dedicated American I have ever met. He is my personal hero. Thanks Irv.
