Comments: 547th Eng Bn (Combat) did not serve in Korea.
In August 1951, the 547th moved to Kelley Barracks in
Darmstadt. Kelley Barracks. In late 1955 the 547th was
alerted for a "gyroscope" move, that is, a temporary
relocation of a unit to the United States. In April
1956, the battalion departed Darmstadt and sailed for
America, finally closing as a unit on Fort Ord,
California in May 1956. Finally, after 30 months in
CONUS, the battalion returned to Germany, closing on
Kelley Barracks, Darmstadt an 20 November 1958, where
it has remained ever since. This gives the 547th the
distinction of being one of the few troop units to have
served in the same location for over 30 years. The
Bridge Builders played an essential role during the
Berlin Air Lift (sic), primarily in preparing bivouac
areas for incoming troops during the period 1961-64. On
15 January 1968, the 547th was separated from the 7th
Army Command and reassigned to V Corps. The following
year, in June of 1969, the battalion was assigned to
the newly organized 130th Engineer Brigade.
The year 1990 was a year of transition for the
battalion. In the summer months it was rumored the
battalion would inactivate in line with the impending
drawdown in Europe. With the advent of operations
Desert Shield and Desert Storm the battalion began
deploying 156 soldiers, and a great deal of equipment
to South West Asia in support of our sister units.
The battalion's inactivation was officially on 1
October 1991.

Comments: I commanded the 547th (Float Bridge) in 1964. The last big project we had was bridging the Han river three times in late 1964. We used the M4T6 bridge and I am sure the first one at the Mandarin site was the longest M4T6 bridge ever buillt.
