Comments: Are there any veterans who were aboard the first train over the newly constructed "shoe fly Bridge"? I have some images of the first train and the brass at the dedication of this bridge from my fahter who was the ROW officer with the HQ Company.

I am interested in the story behind the men who built the bridge and this train you ran. (the train to me looks like a diesel locomotive in the photo that i have)

Comments: I am trying to locate some of the first troops who formed the 714th T.R.O.B. It was some time in Dec. 1950. There were 8 or 10 of us. We moved in to an old school house on the side of a hill out from Puson and began to set up camp. It was my job to draw and distribute rations for the Company. Anyone remember me? Would like to hear from you.

DEC 25 1950 FINDING GUYS

Comments: Arrived at new unit Dec. 25, 1950. Unit was setting up on a terraced hill just west of Pusan. Very, very cold, and we had to set up 12 man squad tents on the terraced spots on this hill. In the darkness of night, of course. Survived the first few nights, thinking we were going to freeze, until we finally got kerosene stoves.
Unit provided two man teams to ride shot gun on supply trains heading to Rail Transportation Offices (RTO's) farther on North.

Any of you guys out there???
