Comments: Dear Sirs;
I am trying to find out information on the 518th Ord. Co. (GAS) . I was assigned to at Ft. Hood Texas, from 1961 to 1963. What I would like to find is the Unit patch and unit crests for the company. I am putting together a display case that covers all the units I was in during my active duty time. I would and will appreciate all the help that you can give me on this.

Comments: My Dad served in this unit during the korean war - he
recently passed away but left about 2 dozen pictures of
this unit and where he was including some of the
antennas, the base(s), and pictures of people. Drop me
a note so I can post them here, that would be awesome
to help families see what members of the group looked
like. Again, just a small handful of pictures, but they
are wonderful.

Comments: I am looking for anyone who served with my father, Corporal James W.
Newbrough, US 52 195 278, 1st Ordnance Company (DS), APO 20, United
States Army from February 5, 1953 to January 31, 1955.

He was in the Korean War and I believe he was stationed near
Yang-Gu, Korea. I also have a paper which lists his address at the
time as the 518th Ord. Co. (DS), APO 20.
I know he would appreciate finding out about some of his buddies,
thank you.

My Father is a Korean War Veteran, and served during the
above dates. When released from the Army, he returned to
his home town of Centre, Alabama and never left! He
returned from Korea (along with 3300 other lucky souls) on
the USS Marine Serpent. It was a 30 day trip, and to this
day, Dad doesn't care to ever leave the U.S. again.
Especially not by boat.

He married Robbie Ann Daniel June 5, 1955, and retired
from Inland Rome Papermill (Rome, GA) a few years back.
He has two sons, Jason Lee Lockridge (married Janet
Sanford) and Joel Daniel Lockridge (me, married Upali
Dutta), and two grandchildren by Jason and Janet, Lindsey and
Alec Joseph (A.J.), and one by Joel and Upali, Jessalyn Kiran
Lockridge.

He has spoken many times of many people from the War.
He would love to hear from any of his old friends. The
email address will come to me -- I will gladly forward the
information on to him!

Comments: I am looking for anyone who was in the 518th during WW-2 or anyone that has any info on the 518th. It was a equipment repair during WW-2. Any info at all will help. This was a group of J.I. Case factory workers that went to france/Germany between 1951 and 1954 I believe. Thanks very much for your time.
