Pacific Grove Tribune, CA June 14, 1951
Peninsula Soldier Home on Furlough
Just returned from a 30-day furlough, 24 Korean veterans at Fort Ord are going through processing necessary for reassignment to stateside duty. This group. Forming the 4th Co., 6230th Reception Center, is one of the first to be brought home under the rotation plan. Leaving Sasbo, Japan, on April 22, where they had a brief stopover, these men arrive din Seattle, Washington, May 5. From Fort Ord they will go to various posts throughout the nation. Many of the men are wearing well-earned decorations for unusual feats of gallantry. Among these is Sgt. First Class Ernest W. Kovach of 234 Dundee avenue, Monterey. Sgt. Kovach has won the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Korean Service Medal and Good Conduct award as a supply sergeant with the 27th Infantry Division. The Bronze Star was given in recognition of his part in keeping a continuous flow of ammunition to the front line. His citation attests that “…his outstanding leadership in organizing and directing carrying parties into high mountain areas contribute materially to the success of the Battalion.” His return ends a tour of forty months’ duty overseas and brings his total over-seas service to 56 months, a large portion of his nine years in the Army.
