Name: William J Byrne
US ARMY 2nd ENG. SPEC. BRIGADE
532nd Boat + Shore Regiment
9/15/50 (INCHON LANDING) to 9/30/51 Returned to Japan

Current address:
William J. Byrne
137 Gladstone Ave
West Islip NY 11795

I would like to contact any members of the above unit and would like
more information on the Korean war project. I would also like any
information on the Hungnam Evacuation that was one of several
incidents in which my unit participated.

---more 5/29/96----

The 2nd Engineers Special Brigade was not part of the 2nd Division.
This unit was not attached to any Division, although it did operate
with other units wherever small boats, landing craft, (LCM's, Ducks),
were needed.I was in Company B which was the amphibous crafts
Company.

This Company was often divided to assist other units with amphibous
operations.
At the Han River crossing, about a dozen members of my
Company were detailed to the 5th Marine Regt,
ferrying tanks across the Han to attack Seoul and ferrying
ambulances back, until a pontoon bridge could be completed.

General Twitty was the Brigade Commander.

Comments: My Dad served with D Co., 532nd Engineer Boat and Shore Regiment in 1950. His name was CPL Robert (Bobby) Lee Fulmer; He participated in the Vieques training invasion in 1950, Inchon landings then came home in 1951. St. Louis MO lost all his records in the fire and I'm trying to find anything I can. If anyone served with him or can point me in a direction which might allow me to piece together his service it would be appreciated. Thanks, SGM Garren Lee Fulmer, USA Retired

Comments: My father was drafted for the Korean War he was sent to Ft Polk, LA and then to Ft Davis CZ Panama. He has told me that his unit was sent to Korea for the Inchon Landing in Sept 1950, and he would have been in the 5th wave to transport soldiers for the invasion, but was not needed. His unit was returned to Panama until he was discharged in 1952. I am looking for any information of him being in the area to receive his I was there awards that were not put on his DD214. Just about all of his records were destroyed in the NARA fire in 72. Thanks for any information.
