Comments: -I was a member of the 238th,. drafted in January 1951, sent to
the Connecticut national guard unit a camp Stewart, Ga. then to
fort Devens, Mass. and on to Japan and Itazuke Air Base.
I was in Headquarters Battery and left Japan on

Comments: The air strip at Itazuke Air base is now
Fukuoka International Airport.
The annex is all built up with a college dorm
and multiple high rises all around. Even the
rice paddies are all built on. The only thing left
that can be recognized is the parade ground.

Unit: 238 AAA GUN BN. HQTRS CW RADIO OPERATOR

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran - Korea

Comments: My experience is pretty much the same as the
poster on November 1997. Drafted in Jan.
took my basic at Ft. Devens with the 24th
Sig Ser. Bn. I went to Radio operators school
at For Dix. Then returned to the 24th. We set
up the communications network for the
maneuvers that were held at Fort Bragg. When
we returned to Devens I was transferred to the
238th AAA. We took a train with the outfit and
cannons to Washington where we set sail on
the USS Marine Phoenix. There was another
Ack Ack outfit on board also from Pennsylvania
I believe. One of us was to be assigned to a
Marine outfit and the guns were to be used as
anti-personnel weapons. Pretty much as the
Germans did in WW II with their 88
millimeters. We must have said the most
prayers because we were unloaded at
Yokohama. I didn't stay at Zama for more than
a day or so, when myself and a cadre were
shipped out in advance to set up the gun
emplacements and Hqtrs at Fukuoka. I only
remember working on Battery
Dsemplacement for it was the closest to
Itazuke. Sometime in the late spring the 238th
went home and were named the 53rd AAA
Gun Bn. We didn't do too bad. We defeated
the
Airforce in the Fast pitch softball tournament.
And our baseball team also gave a pretty good
accounting of itself. Not bad for a handful of
Dogfaces amongst an army and a half of
Airforce personell.
