Wayne Carlson

Born: 01/09/1930
Died:  06/09/2004

Medic,  15th Infantry, 3rd Infantry Division

The following is by Martin Markley:

A Debt

Sometimes in a person's life another individual will have a lasting effect on that person's future. I contribute my being alive today to the medical attention given to me by Wayne Carlson and other division medical personnel. Wayne, a medic in the 15th Infantry Regiment, was one of the first to tend to my wounds. While the battalion surgeon was removing shrapnel from my extremities Wayne made certain that pressure was maintained on my head wound. He did not relinquish the task until I was placed in a helicopter for evacuation to our M.A, S.H. A few years ago during a reunion I was fortunate to meet Wayne and Gordon Lowery, another medic that was in the aid station at that time. This was the first we had met since that eventful June in 1953. It has been a great pleasure for me to learn more about Wayne and have the opportunity to personally thank him. I will never forget.

Henry (Hank) Flaack

Born: 05/19/1931
Died:
05/25/2006 

In a note, Don Dingee wrote this about his comradeship with Hank:

“Hank and I met in Basic Training  in Indiantown Gap, PA in 1952. We took the same troopship to Japan together but were assigned to different companies in the 3rd Infantry Division, 15th Infantry Regiment. Hank went to Fox Company and I went to Baker Company.
I was wounded on 6/12/53 and was sent to the hospital in Japan. Hank came to see me on his R&R from Korea.
After Korea, Hank, his wife Dottie and my wife Anita and I met in New York City at the Nut Club. We saw each other almost every year until I moved to Tucson in 1982 but still kept in touch by phone.
Hank was a very hard worker, a great family man, and a wonderful friend. He was also a hero in Korea but too modest to talk about it. I will miss him very, very much. To Dottie and family, who he loved very much, I am so sorry and you know where I am if you need me.

I was overwhelmed reading (the OPHSA) web site. My husband, Lt. Francis Nester, served in I Company. He was mentioned in Don Chase's story. He died Feb 8, 2001 from Parkinson Disease complications. He kept in touch with Don Chase. He often wondered what happened to Sgt. Burns.

In the last month of his illness, suffering from dementia, he was back in Korea reliving his horrible experiences. His five children and grandchildren are so proud of him and all of you who sacrificed so much.

Master Sergeant Clyde Shinault

Born: 1923

Died: 08/07/2006

A tribute by Jim Evans
Sergeant Major Clyde Shinault, AKA “Snake”, was a fine soldier and warrior. I had the honor of serving with Snake during the Korean War at a battle defending “Outpost Harry” on June 12th 1953.
It was in late spring on 1953 that I took Command of Company A, 5th RCT. The then First Sergeant rotated back to the United States and I needed a First Sergeant. When I asked Sergeant Shinault to be my top enlisted man he was not sure that he could do the job. He explained that his career had been as Supply Sergeant and not as a line sergeant. I looked closely into his eyes and saw a leader and a person with courage. I said “Sergeant, if I didn’t think that you could do the job, I would not have offered it to you. The men respect you and I respect you. So, you have the job.”
A few weeks later, I knew that I had made the right decision. We were engaged in the terrible battle for “Outpost Harry”. The outpost was too small for all of the company to be on the hill. So I decided that I needed someone that I could trust to remain at the MLR to be sure the personnel and supplies would get to us. I asked Sergeant Shinault to remain back at the MLR and do the critical job of getting men and supplies up to us. When the ammunition and water did not get to us as ordered by “Snake”, Sergeant Shinault led the men to the hill at great personal risk while under enemy artillery. He got us what we needed.
He did not disappoint me or the men of Company A. Without his dedication to duty there is a very good chance that I would not be here today.
