1ST PROVISIONAL DEMILITERIZED ZONE POLICE COMPANY, USMC

ROBERT CAULKINS wrote on August 15, 2000


City and State: BRUNSWICK GA

Unit: 1ST PROV. DMZ POLICE CO., 1ST MARINE DIVISION

Service or Relationship: MARINE VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: I served with the 1st Provisional Demilitarized Zone Police Company, 1st Marine Division, October 1953 - August 1954

I don’t know if you have any background on the Marine Corps’ contribution to the defense of the Korean DMZ. If not, this is a summing up of the establishment of the outfit and the duties of the members. I am unclear as to whether the service of the 1st
ov. DMZ Police Co., extended to the eventual departure of the Marine Division in 1955.

A stipulation set by the Korean armistice agreement in 1953, was that both the Communist and United Nations Command police their respective sections of the DMZ with “civil police,” not to exceed 1,000 in the zone at any one time across the entire 155-mi
front. Since no civilian police were available to either side, requirements were modified so that a specially designated military unit, in lieu of civil police, could be employed and the original quota enlarged if this became feasible.

Due to the delicate aspect of the DMZ, as well as the non-repatriated POWs in the custody of Indian forces, security measures were of the utmost importance. The 1st Marine Division activated a new unit, the 1st Provisional Demilitarized Zone Police Comp
y at 0800 on 4 September. The new unit, charged with maintaining security throughout the 1st Marine Division sector, became operational three days later. Commanding officer was Captain Samuel G. Goich, formerly of Company F, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Re
ment. Each regiment from the division furnished 25 enlisted men and 1 officer to form the company, including standby personnel. On 21 September, the DMZ Police Company was attached to the 5th Marine Regiment which was the regiment deployed on the new ML
The 1st and 7th Marine Regiments were in reserve. During the period of its existence, the 1st Provisional DMZ Police Company became attached to whichever regiment rotated into the front line position. These three regiments interchangeably bore the gene
c designation of, “Northern Regiment.”

DMZ Police personnel were required to have at least three months’ Korean service, a General Classification Test score of at least 95, a minimum height of 5 feet 10 inches, and were selected for physical stature and mental capacity required in coping wit
the delicate situation existing within the Demilitarized Zone. The average DMZ Company member was said to know map-reading on an officer level, first aid, radio and, understand the fine print of the cease-fire like a striped-trouser diplomat.

The mission of the Marine provisional police company as set up by the truce agreement was to furnish military police escort for special personnel visiting the DMZ and to apprehend truce violators or enemy line-crossers. Visitors who rated a military esc
t were members of the Military Armistice Commission, Joint Observer teams, Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC) inspection teams [NNSC teams consisted of personnel from Sweden, Switzerland, Poland and Czechoslovakia], or other VIPs authorized t
enter the UN southern sector of the DMZ by the Military Armistice Commission.

Six Marine DMZ military policemen, each armed with a .45 caliber pistol; and M-1 rifle, would accompany UN joint observer teams up to the demarcation line, midpoint between enemy and friendly boundaries, but they would not cross the DML. I Corps orders
irected that military police were to be “responsible for the safety of the United Nations members of the team and, when meetings were held south of the demarcation line, responsible for the safety of the CCF members of the team as well.”

Major tasks performed by the 104-man company operating within the 2,000-yard wide, 28-mile long zone were:

To maintain surveillance within the UN half of the zone.

To apprehend and deliver to the Division Provost Marshal any line crossers encountered who did not possess an authorized pass, regardless of the direction from which such persons entered the DMZ; and:

To provide check points and observation posts on known routes through the zone , especially during the hours of darkness and reduced visibility, and report all suspicious incidents to the Regimental S-2.

DMZ Police Company personnel operated in motorized patrol teams and traveled the entire division sector in radio or cargo jeeps. One platoon was kept in a standby basis at camp to serve as a mobile reserve in the event of an emergency. The roving patrol
submitted reports of all incident, which were then compiled in a company report. A copy was submitted to the S-2, the Northern regiment, and 1st Marine Division G-2.

UNC security measures at all times were strict and uncompromising in the Korean DMZ buffer zone. This included the salvage period, the BIG SWITCH prisoner exchange that took place within the division sector at Freedom Village from 5 August-6 September,
d the lengthy nonrepatriate POW settlement that extended through January 1954. In places where the military demarcation line was not marked on the ground or clearly recognizable, the conservative ruling was to stay at least 500 yards south of its estima
d location. This applied both to body recovery and salvage operations. The No-Fly line was scrupulously verified.

Commitments for the DMZ Police Company increased substantially with the arrival of the nonrepatriated POWs (22,000 CCF and NKPA) at their camp in the DMZ corridor west of the 2d Battalion, 5th Marines area. A railroad track ran through the middle camp a
a and a steam locomotive which had been riddled by strafing sat on the track as a grim reminder of American air power. The Communist “explainers,” as well as Polish and Czech members of the Neutral Nations Commission, had to be escorted while in the UN
lf of the DMZ. The required a 24-hour checkpoint and escort cadre be established.

This check point, consisting of a guard post and a squad tent, was situated on a road in the narrow strip of land sandwiched between the Military Demarcation (No-Pass) Line and the barbed wire fence of the POW camp. The post was manned by an NCO and 4 m
. Often, while travelling from base camp to this isolated post, DMZ policemen would find the bodies of POWs who had been murdered by their mates and thrown over the barbed wire fence. Since the POWs had divided themselves into Communist and non-Communis
factions, those who did not toe the line on either side were eliminated. From the top of Hill 155 DMZ Marines could sit and watch the various POW compounds putting on stage shows, it was especially eerie at night to hear the Chinese music.

As the number of enemy sightings, a daily occurrence in the DMZ, continued to increase, the size of the police patrols increased correspondingly. A typical example was related by a member of the police company:

It was common practice of the Communists to have a group of their men, supposedly their DMZ Police, walk up to the Military Demarcation (No-Pass) Line and either stand close to it or step across. When one of our patrols approached in superior numbers t
attempt to apprehend them, the Communists would immediately reinforce with more men. This made it necessary to have our patrols at sufficient strength that they could protect themselves from being kidnapped.

As these requirements for security increased, the original complement of approximately 5 officers and 99 men became inadequate to patrol the DMZ. By late October 1953, the T/O strength of the 1st Provisional Demilitarized Zone Police Company has been i
reased to 6 officers and 314 men. Authorization for the number of police personnel on duty in the DMZ had similarly augmented from 50 to 175.


Some of the observation posts manned by the DMZ policemen along the 28-mile sector were, from east to west: The Hook, Boulder City, Hedy, Hills 181, 225 and 155. A squad of DMZ Marines were based at the base of each of these hills and would, at non-set
mes, day and night, patrol up the hills and set up an OP or LP (listening post). These positions were always set up in different locations on the hills.

Hazards at the time were the aggressive actions of the CCF in the zone which led to many tense face-to-face confrontations.

Unexploded ordnance laying all over the ground and in the old trench lines was another danger. At the Hook, overlooking the Sami-chon River, a large brush fire, started on the CCF side of the DML and which spread over to the Marine side of the DML trapp
a DMZ Police patrol (I was the patrol leader) on a hill top for several hours while unexploded ordnance (much small arms stuff, mines and mortar rounds, etc) cooked off. The patrol was forced to take cover in an old bunker.

On another occasion, one DMZ policeman tripped a mine and was evacuated with serious injuries to his lower extremities. During my time with the unit, several other Marines were injured by mines, vehicle accidents and structure collapses.

Unit: 507TH SIGNAL COMPANY

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: I served in the 507th from about Nov 1954 until it was deactivated in early 1955. I was then transfered to the UNKMAC support unit at Munsan-ni just south of the DMZ until late 1955 when I transfered to Japan. I don't remember many of those I served with in the 507th but one was named McFadden. We attended Signal School at Camp Gordon, Ga before going to Korea. I believe the 1st Sergeants name was Bonamo or something similiar (the spelling is probably wrong) I have some pictures I would be glad to share if anyone is interested. I have retired from the Army as a CSM and currently work for a Semiconductor Mfg. company in the Dallas, Texas area.

Warren Steele.Our main battle positions were on top of a mountain named Easy Block. I remember the very treacherous road leading to our manned observation post. I had to take many meals to the troops during the extreme winter conditions of 1957. Also spent time on the DMZ when we gave the 19th a break. Also remember manuevers on Icicle Range in Spring of 1957. Anyone else out there want to reminisce?
