Comments: I'm trying to do some research for my husband. He is an operation
Iraqi freedom veteran, and was very close to his pawpaw Owens.
Pawpaw Owens is CPL Carl Newby Owens and was enlisted in the
US Army from 1950-1953. We did a request for records from the
National Personnel Records Center and found out most of the
records were destroyed in a fire. What we did get is that he was in
the Korean war with the 131st Tran Tank CO. I was just wondering f
anyone knew if that was the same as 131st Tran Truck CO or if they
were 2 separate units. Also I was wondering if anyone knew what
theyre unit patch was or if they had one. My plan is to build a
shadow box for my husband and use the casket flag that we have
for pawpaw owens. I know the medals he was awarded and his
dates of service but not when he was in Korea. I also know he was
discharged from fort jackson, south carolina. Any info anyone could
share to enlighten me would be wonderful! Thank you so much for
taking the time to read this! :)

Comments: My father, Lt. Robert E. Gorman, was in the 131st T. Truck Co., and then the 515th (as Executive Officer ) near Chunchon, Korea, in 1953-54. I have pictures of some of the soldiers in the company, but the only name I can make out on one of them is "Myers". I'd be happy to hear from anyone who might remember him, or is interested in identifying any of the pictures I have.

Comments: Hi, I'm responding to Mr. Robbins' question about the 131st and casualties from the SCUD attack in Dahran, Saudi Arabia. At that time, the 131 had already moved north to Log Base Echo, in the vicinity of Hafr Al Batin and was no near the SCUD impact in Dahran(thank God). However, I can tell you from first-hand knowledge that there was at least one element of the 131 in the Dahran area at the time of the attack. I was a supply specialist with the 131st TC at the time and was on a resupply run down south with along with one of our mechanics. We had holed up for the night at our old battalion (419th) in Dammam, approx. three miles from the fatal impact site. That night, as usual, the SCUDS came in, except this time one actually hit a warehouse full of American soldiers. I remember the impact vividly, as it was much louder than previous SCUD explosions and we could actually smell smoke a few minutes afterwards. It wasn't until the following day that we found out an Army Reserve Unit from PA had been hit and lost about 18 people.

A Pensylvania Transportation Company was hit by a scud missile during the Gulf war and had many casualties. It hit me in the pit of my stomach as if some of my buddies were involved. Was the 131st Transportation Truck Co. involved? If you have no information on this, can you give me the address of the 131st.

to 2nd Inf Div. I find most people did not take this war as serious as we participants did.
When I came back in 1953, the indigenous folks
were still doing the same as when I got there
in December 195o! Good Luck with the project
and GOD Bless you for caring!!!
