Comments: Member of 6127th ATG Ashiya Japan J-1 from Oct 1951 to Oct 1952.

Was assigned to Hq Det in Unit Supply as a PFC. Worked for TSgt Gohegan, Supply officer Lt Davis. Later was transfered to the Group Supply Point near the flight line in Ashiya. Worked for Major Massey and made Tdy´s with him to the detachments in Japan and Korea..K-9, K10, K-13, K16 etc.. Re-enlisted as a Corporal in Oct 1952 and was transferred to Det 20, K47, Chunchon Korea as the Unit Supply man. The Detachment had 2 officers and 17 enlisted.

Returned the US in April 1953 and found out I had three stripes.

I was just going thru my old military records and destroying them and found the 6127th ATG Certificate signed by Major Massey with the Minuteman on it. I still have a lot of pics of Ashiya and Chunchon.

I would be glad to share them. I could make a Web page and put them in it.. then post the page on this site..

Comments: Gentlemen,
My father, Bill Stiefermann (born Nov 7, 1930 - died August 9, 2010) was a comrade of yours. He was from Loose Creek, Missouri.

If any of you remember Dad, I'd love to hear from you. Dad was so proud, yet humble about his time serving our nation.

For those of you who remember him, rest assured, he died a happy, well loved, and good man.

And hey vets - thanks for your service. Your sacrifice made things a heck of a lot better for my generation of troops.

Hope to hear from you,

Tom

Comments: Hello,
My name is Michael Rodgers. My father is the singer who became popular in the late 1950's "Jimmie Rodgers".
My dad served in Korea with the 6127 at the K16 airbase. He worked in the Air Terminal. I have been reading the first draft of my fathers life story this week and he mentions quite a few people (see keywords) and experiences that he had while serving there.
One such experience was in August of 1954 when a group of North Koreans crossed the flight line and "hit" the chow hall killing a number of Air Force personel. I was wondering does anyone remember that incident? Does anyone remember my father being there and have any stories of him that you could share. Dad ended up winning a base talent contest and getting placed in Special Services and touring airbases with a show. He ended up in Nasville TN and began a recording career in 1957 with a song called "Honeycomb". I would love to learn more about his experinces there and his friends mentioned in the "keywords". Thanks so much and God Bless. Michael Rodgers

DESIGNER OF MINUTEMAN EMBLEM

JERILYN NIKIEL wrote on May 16, 2007


City and State: TALLAHASSEE FL

Unit:

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: I recently found an article documenting the origin of the 6127th ATG's emblem. My Dad, Frank J. Schelling, was a 1st Lieutenant at the time he designed the emblem. He had flown many B-29 missions in WWII from Tinian in the Marianna Islands, and then was reactivated during the Korean War. I would post the photo of the emblem if it were possible.

Here's the text of the article:

The 6127th ATGp., an organization with a myriad jobs, has conceived a unit emblem which sizes up all of them in one picture. The emblem, shown in the picture above, was designed and drawn by 1st Lt. Frank J. Schelling, statistical services officer for the group.

They believe this emblem to be symbolic of the nature of their mission and portrayal of the group. It conveys a thought appropriate to the history and operation of the organization. From its origin until the present time the 6127th has displayed characteristics closely allied to those of the "minuteman". In the beginning it was unorganized and untrained and was manned by personnel from all parts of the theater. As time when on it gained knowledge through application, willingness, and hard work, making the best of available equipment. Many times they carried out the mission under adverse weather conditions. It was a case of starting from scratch and building a successful organization. 6127th detachments are now serving, as did many teams of minutemen serve in different parts of the country, under the command of one Headquarters. Their pledge is the same as that of the minutemen: "We are ready to take to the field at a minute's notice." These and many other similarities serve to justify the minuteman as being especially suitable for the trade mark. The letters alpha and omega, the first and last of the Greek alphabet, denote that the men of the 6127th are at the beginning and the end of the movement of all cargo, mail, and passengers. The chain represents the group operation: it forms strong links in the function of Combat Cargo movements. The chain also depicts thye unity of their many scattered detachments and liaison sections.

Remember the folowing...The Black Knights of Korea was stationed at this base. One story I remember is that an NCO on the base built a model B-29 and attempted to fly it on the runway by remote. It seemed to take off well, but as great as it went up, it came down even greater, demolishing the plane on contact. Hopefully someone else may remember this story too.

Comments: I was at Itami Air Base from May 1952 to May 1953. I was then reassigned to the 801st Medical Air Evac Squadron at Tachikawa AFB. While assigned to the 801st I was assigned to the following locations: K-2 Tague, K-16 Seoul, and K-55 Osan. I am interested in making contact with former members of the 6127th and 801st.

Looking for the following members: Wenzel Frank MINN, Robert Briles IND, Robert Rydell NEB, James Boyle WA, James Wyche FLA, Sheldon Gornstein RI, Robert Burke WY, Dan Copenski NJ, Elmer Wright NY, Robert Karr NY. The above were stationed at Itami Air Base during 1952, 53, and 54.

Itami had a great Airmen's NCO Club. The town outside the main gate was an exciting experience. Remember in particular the following clubs/bars: The New Yorker,Chicago, Pacific, Coconut, Ginza, Bolero, Blackout, Cherry, Harem, and Four Aces.

This was a great assignment. I remember in particular the NCO Club with both American and Japanese entertainment. Great club with slot machines and restaurant. Steak dinner $1.00.
The town outside the base was called several different names: The Hill, The Strip and Hot Rocks were the more popular. I remember some of the club names. The Harem, The Itami, The New Yorker. The Stork Club, The Bolero, The Pacific, The Coconut, The Ginza and The Cherry to name a few.
