Before we went to Jump School.Attended Jump School while in Co. A. Failed P.T.Test 3 Times,(Pullup Problem) Thanks to SFC Hayes, Platoon Sgt. and Col. Hughes, Regimental Comander, I wasn't shipped out to Germany, I finally passed the P.T.Test and earned my Wings.I was assigned to Service Company 505th Abn.Inf. Regt.82nd Abn. Div.From June 1955 thru Sept.23rg 1957. I forget my MOS No. , But I was one of the Regiments Ordnance Parts Specialist. Two events in my time with the 82nd that I will never forget: A demonstration jump at Fort Jackson S.C. on Armed Forces Day,we jumped on the parade field (postage stamp sized drop zone) Para glide quote. The trainees swarmed around us after we landed,and asked questions and got autographs, it was a great jump and a great day. We jumped from a C119, two 8 man sticks,Small DZ, Most of us landed on the field , a few missed ,but no one was hurt very bad. a few minor injuries, we climbed the risers to get on the field,slipped like hell,and as I said most of us made the field.The second event was Operation Sagebrush in Louisiana, we drove down with a stop over at Elgin AFB Fl. We had Thanksgiving dinner in a cow pasture among the cow flaps and a torrential downpour, but it was great time, only bad thing,we drew straws to see who was going to jump during the exercize I lost and didn't get to jump.Any Trooper who participated in either of these events send me an e-mail,have lots to talk about.

Location: Litchfield, Il. 62056
Units/Dates +Comments: My dad, Robert C. Riggins told me that he jumped with the 187th airborne (rct) in Korea but he can't remember the Bn. or what ever you call it and I'm trying to find out for him, to see if I can locate some of his buddies he might have jumped with,he was in service from Oct. 1950 and thinks that he came back to the states in 52-53, I have his service# it is U.S.Army 17-318-716. I have a copy of a newspaper article that states that he has returned to Kumsong, Korea after spending a 5-day R&R leave in Japan, under that it says, in service since May 1951, he has been in Korea since last October, the picture at the top is dated June 22,1952 so I figure my grandparents put it in the newspaper his rank at that time was PFC. Dad can't remember things to well any more and he never talked about Korea, it was like a bad name in our house when I was growing up, and now that his time is running short, he tells me he wishe's he would have talked about his time there. I am a collector of military items and have asked dad to try and remember names and time frames, but after 40 years of drinking to try and forget about it, he now regrets it because his grandkids would like to know. He said he served with several units while he was there, and he can remember the numbers, he said he was with the 2nd DIV.,3rd DIV., 40th, 45th,7th DIV., 11th airborne, 187th airborne (RCT).,he also told me that got the presidential unit citation(U.S.)and also the S.Korean presidential unit citation and a letter from Sigman Ree. He also earned 2 bronze stars, the purple heart, and my aunt told me at one time that his mom&dad had got a letter from the government that he was MIA. he also mentioned something about 2nd BN. H company, when he was injured he said he was in a big hospital in Japan, and that pretty well sums up what I have to go on, I have made several phone calls to different places and got nowhere, and told him last week that I was going to get a computer and see what I could find out on the internet so I am basically new at this also, I have been learning how to use the computer from my daughter, so excuse any errors I am making. I am about to run out of options to try and keep my dads place in history, he doesn't have a whole lot of time left, so any help on this will be appreciated. THANK YOU, the son of a veteran who cares.

Units/Dates +Comments: Was looking for the words I heard as a child on "Beautiful Streamer" But the ones you have are not the ones I heard. I don't know how old you are but I'm hoping you can help me. When I was young in the 1940's, a neighbor girl was going with a fellow who was in the 101st Airborne paratroopers. WW11. Nice fellow too. While sitting outside in the warm summer evenings talk would go to wartime. When he had one beer to many he would sometimes talk about thing in the war, not to often but one evening he sang us this song they sang. It was sung to the tune of "Beautiful Dreamer". He called it "Beautiful Streamer" , and all I can remember of it is as follows
"Beautiful streamer open for me here I'm going down with an torn canopy. I hit the ground with a sickening thud and all around me were puddles of blood, there wasn't much left for the medics to see so they just wiped me up with my torn canopy."
I remember tears in his eyes when he finished it. I know it's words sounds awful but I feel it's still part of history. Reason I'm asking is we were talking about it and it came back to mind. My friends asked if I had the complete words for it hence the reason I'm looking for them. Hoping you can help. Thank you for taking the time to read this. firstname.lastname@example.org
