Landed in Yokahama, train to Sasabo, staging area, held there for approx 10 days then a group of MOS 405 shipped to Pusan joining Hq., 55th QM Depot, Pusan.

Secretary of ManPower [?], Anna Rosenberg, insisted that Inactive Reservist should not have been called up and ordered us returned. We returned in Sept.or Oct.'51, on the Gen. Polk, a real MATS, Troop Ship, rather than a Vioctory Ship that took us over. Unit Members received two Bronz Stars.

Looking for: Baker, Penyen, New York
