Comments: I was based most of my 18-month tour at a railhead on
the outskirts of Changyang-ni, near Seoul. We
administered the Korean National Railway handling the
movement of troops and materials. I served in Korea
from November 1953 to March 1955 and attained the rank
of Staff Sargent. Would like to hear from any of my
former comrades.

Comments: We were a detachment that provided any kind of transportation to move
troops and supplies around Korea, within the 8th Army Area. I was
stationed mostly at Inchon, where I would receive truck convoys and then
release them after loading, providing them with road clearance numbers.

I was also stationed at Chunchon and Yongdongpo providing the same
kind of services.

Is this familiar to anyone out there who may have been part of the same
organization?

Please let me know.

Comments: The general heading for this unit as appears in this page is listed as: 593 Transportation Truck Rd Railway. When I was a member, fro, Dec. 1950- Ser 1951, It was known as 593rd Transportation Traffic Regulating Detachment, under 3rd TMRS.

We were stationed at the end of the rails in Pusan, So. Korea , in the then main railroad station in Pusan.

We acted as dispatchers for troop trains and supply trains heading North.

I was later moved up the West coast, on the rail line, about 40 miles North of Pusan, to a little town of Hyundia. We ran a RTO (Rail Transportation Office) from the railroad depot in Hyundia.

Trucks and Ducks brought ammunition from ships out in the Yellow Sea to our loading areas for shipment to other RTOs further up the line.

Any one out there that may have been part of this type of operation????
