Unit: 226TH ORD DET (GM GS) (NIKE)

Service or Relationship: U.S. Army - Nike Hercules Ordnance

Comments: A team out of the 226th that was located on the Ordnance Depot at Ascom, City consisting of 8 members (i.e., SP6 Clayton Rollins, SP6 James Pittman, SP4 Gerald Sherette, Sp4 Clyde Mier, PFC Douglas Wallace, PFC Dennis Beppu, SP4 Joseph Citadel, and myself, SP5 Larry L. McFall) was detailed to take equipment and go south to support an operation in the 30th Ord Co (GS) Area. It was designated for 60 days and when we got there we found that we had no satisfactory quarters. Our boss come to the conclusion that we would go and live on the beach close to the 30th. To say the least, we drank mostly beer versus the sick tasting water that they provided. Hadn’t been there long and one night we had choppers coming in evacuating soldiers. They had gotten poisoned by the drinking water that had not been taken care of properly. Of course beer won out on that event.

Comments: My time spent in the 226th Ordnance Detachment (DS) was located on the Ammunition Depot, ASCOM City. We were a Direct Support unit (Ordnance) for the Nike Hercules. I was a 433, Mechanical Support. The unit did not seem to have much business and I spent the first 6 months (Most of 1962) in the 226th which was during a nasty winter. We lived in a Quonset Hut which the doors would not close completely. We had oil heaters which would usually burn red hot. We all had the back of our Parkas melted from backing up so close to the heaters. I finally got orders for the 65th Ordnance Company in Anyang which was indeed a better job. Stayed busy!

Comments: Looking for any information regarding my Dad's time in Korea. He was stationed there from about November of 1951 until February of 1953. He was posted to the HQ of the 226th Ordnance Base Depot. His name was Richard Dick Olsen.
Their base was in the old customs building in Pusan and the men were quartered in 12 man tents. I have photos to share. One in particular has several 2nd Cav, ROK, and others in addition to my Dad.

Thanks,

Ken Olsen

Comments: In response to your request for info on 226th Ord Base Depot, I served in this unit from about Dec 1952 to Oct 1953. When I joined 226th, they were located on the main city square in what was formerly the Customs Building. The same building served the Base Comptrollers Office. In spring of 1953 we moved to Haeundae area on outskirts of town. I do not recall your friend Lyle Hartman. What was his assignment there? Please respond to my home e-mail Travelers2833@aol.com. Thanks.
