Comments: I served from July, 1955 through October, 1956, mostly as assistant S-4 and S-4. During that time we moved our buildings bodily as described by Edward Martin from Munsan-ni, across the road from the A9 airstrip, to Paju-ri, across from Division Artillery headquarters. After trying to disassemble and re-assemble a pre-fab building, I believe it was either the battalion motor officer or motor sergeant who got the idea for using the low-boy. I did the survey which laid out the location of the buildngs in the new compound. Except for units on the DMZ, I believe the entire battalion was concenrated there.

Some names I remember are Lt. Arthur Berkey, Maj. Frank Pechulis, Lt. Col. James E. Davidoff, Master Sgt. Boutte, Lt. Edward J. Filemyr III.

Time frame : spring and summer , 1951. Some were with ROK groups , some with 6th Tank , some with small US infantry groups, and some alone. This would include any infantrymen and air strike pilots that recalls accompanying the two and three half track teams conducting these operations involving the 26thAAA Quad fifty half tracks. Later , in winter thru Jan 52 ,on an unknown mountain top ,MLR , with 24th Div firces on left , ROK forces on right flank. I was a gunner on , and later leader of "1-How " ( my halftrack and radio designation). A big thanks to all.
And I express great appreciation to the few who did not accompany us , but were assigned to help extract us from the valleys when or if we became encircled. Especially to members of the Wolfhounds , who waited at the old concrete factory/railroad tracks , our line of departure on some occasions. It was good to know you were there....

He first went into Korea, I think around July 6th of 1950, with the 26th AAA, not sure, but I think he was with the 26th at Taegon and the fight for the Pusan perimeter. Then he got transferred to the 6th tank battallion for the remainder of the war.
