Comments: Seeking history on the above that existed in 1954 along
with the 1st Cavalry Division at Camp Crawford,
Sapporo, Japan in 1954. My last duty assignment was the
545th Military Police during that time. I have searched
the internet to no avail. An old photo of me in uniform
shows a shoulder patch on the left sleeve with the 1st
Cavalry patch on the right. Would appreciate any
information as to the history of the 8016th and what
happen to the organization.

Comments: I am a writer working on a project about dogs and the
military. A Korean vet named, Leo Coe, told me about a
dog handlers unit that was attached and their officer
Lt. Cook. Mr Coe was in country 1951-1952, part of the
1st Cav. 7th Regiment, possibly around Yong Dun Po. He
became friends with Lt. Cook and this small dog
handlers unit. I am not sure if they were a part of the
545th but am trying to find anything I can. I have a
picture of this unit but not much else. Please contact
me if you have any info at all about this unit or were
involved with any dog handler unit. I would love to
talk with you.

Any information which you can give would be of great help. There is a great need in our country for the youth to understand the sacrifices of freedom. There are stories hich need to be told.
With you help I can try to accomplish these goals.
Speed is important, I am leaving for Iraq early next year and want to have the museum / memorial up and running before I leave.
