Keywords: TDY to 558th Amphious Trucking Company. Quartered on Redbeach, my job was to unload the ducks and ship ammo out on railhead. 1953 When Armisted was signed I was sent back to my regular company in Hyundai, Korea to 930th ordinance ammo company. I remember the faces but not the names of the men I served with. I was on red beach June 17, 1953 when they came on and hit the POL dump in the harbor. Anybody remember that?

Comments: A USFK historian is seeking information on the 558th Amphibious Transportation Company 1950-1953 and specifically about a "Lt. Hynes." A Korean, Mr. Hahn Kyu-Bom, who may have served with the company as a KATUSA or civilian employee, is seeking confirmation of his service and contact data for "Lt. Hynes."

Comments: Trying to locate information for Mr. Joseph Lynchard, 558th Amphibious Truck Co., he was captured in late 52 or early 53 while driving munitions with 3 other men. Held for 10-11 months. Has no data since his records were destroyed in St. Louis fire. Any assistance would be helpful.

Comments: I am putting together a "Dog House" for my step father. I am retired Air Force but I think I have some insight to what life may have been like for him then. I am proud of his and your service and your gift to the S. Koreans.

He like you was stationed Inchon Korea and drove Ducks for the 558th ATC. My step father (Edward T. Knorr) told me he was attatched to the 8th Army Division; Would the uniform patch have been a red octagon with a white four bladed propeller. I found it listed under 8th Army Dress Patch

There was an 8th Field Army Dress Patch that has a blue 8 pointed star over a red cross on a white shield. Finally I found the 8th Inf Division Patch, this has a white 8 with a yellow arrow through it on a blue shield.

Which would be proper for your unit?
