Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: I am seeking AAAOCS 1952-1953 Ft Bliss graduates who would be willing to act as coordinators and mobilize their class to attend a combined class reunion in late April 2003.
During nineteen months of operation in 1952 and 1953, AAAOCS at Ft Bliss graduated 1,175 candidates in fourteen classes. Many of these men served in command and staff positions in Korea, where some were casualties. Others served in Europe during the Korean era, some joined the instructional staff of the AAA and GM Branch of the Artillery School at Ft Bliss and a few made the service their career.
Year 2003 will be the Fiftieth Anniversary Year of the Korean War Armistice and an important time to all AAAOCS graduates. Even if you cannot act as a class coordinator, please make contact so that you can be kept informed as plans develop.
