    US Army Training accident in 1989, South Korea


      I am looking for articles about a training accident that occurred in South Korea on July 6,1989. It was the 2ID, 2/503 Inf., CSC, Mortar Platoon. A number of South Korean civilians were killed It was published in the 2ID newspaper, The Warrior (?) within a few days and published again in either The Army Times, or Stars and Stripes. I would also appreciate any other articles regarding that incident. Do you or anyone have archive materials regarding this incident? (I looked at Stars and Stripes and to look at their archive, you must join first--without knowing if they even have any archives going back that far. I cannot find any online resources or mentions of the 2ID newspaper or even a Camp Casey newspaper.)
