Comments: For a study of the casualties incurred by TF Faith (31st Regimental Combat Team) from 27 November 1950-03 December 1950, I would like help in determining individuals unit assignments.

Using the KWP and a 7th Division site I have been able to populate databases with the information related to the units of TF Faith. However these records only provide unit information to the regiment level. In order to make sense of the records as they relate to TF Faith I need to find an individual's Battalion, Company/Battery and Platoon level (if possible) for the units listed below.

I am particularly interested in obtaining copies of contemporary documentation (rosters, morning reports, special orders, reports, letters, etc.) that may aid in these identifications.
Lists of names and unit designations of individuals that you recall would also be of interest.

HQ and HQ Co. 31st Reg.
31st Tank Co.
31st HM Co (firing platoons and HQ)
Service Co.
Medical Co. 31st Inf.
1 platoon C Co., 13th Engineers

1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry
HQ and HQ Co.
A, B, C, D Co.
1 platoon HM Co., 32nd Inf.
USMC (Anglico) TACP

3st Battalion, 31st Infantry
HQ and HQ Co.
I, K, L, M Co.
USAF TACP

57th Field Artillery Battalion
HQ and HQ Battery
A and B Battery
D Battery (-) 15th AAA AW Bn. (attached)
Service Battery, 57th FA Bn.


Thanks for your assistance.
