Comments: Hello to all veterans. My father served in the Korean War and was a truck driver and repaired trucks and was stationed in Germany at that time ( 50 to 53 ) hence my great interest in Korean War Vehicles. I own a 1952 GMC M211 Deuce and half ( Troop Carrier/mobile communication center ) I know it was: 1st Field Artillery Battalion , 166th Air National Guard Delaware. 28th Division. I am trying to find out either by that info or by the hood number and vin number who may have been assigned to this truck, if they are still with us today and a manor of which to leave my contact info with them so they can see and drive their truck, would be a great thing to do for a Vet who may have good memories of state side service, if he stayed stateside that is and made it through the War.
This is in High Respect for our Vets indeed of which I am so very proud of them from my heart to theirs. Thank you and take care. David Adams of Schwenksville Pa

Comments: First got to Chun Chon in 1951. Trucks were old 6by6.
Wooden steering wheel no doors no heater standard shift. Got to shift gears without depressing clutch pedal. Some trucks got a large heater sitting on left fender sucking gas out of the carburator. Had to clean carburator air filter that had oil in it after every run. Used raw gasoline to do the cleaning in cold temperatures. Carried everything from ROK troops to bread rice and vegetables. Also carried heavy cannon shells which were thrown on the bed of the truck and rolled all over the bed of the truck. I always thought one of them would explode.
New trucks came in. Beautiful heated fully automatic. I was in heaven. Earned the Motor Vehicle Badge. Left Korea soon after the hostilites were over. Bumped into company cook in mid town NY by surprise. Thank a Veteran
