Comments: Had been 16 months on Guam with the 96th Engineer Base Depot company. When mission completed, in September 1951, tranfered to Camp Drake REPO depot and then to Detachment C. Upon arrival, was sent to Tokorozawa Subdepot, TDY for 30 days. The TDY lasted 11 months. The group, Sgt New and others, were responsible for some 55 million board feet of lumber, space hearters and concertina wire. There were 5 rail spurs at the depot bringing lumber from port. We then separated the lumber and as requisitioned, shipped it to Korea or where ever needed. Left TDY in October or November of 1952 and back to Det. C. Left Japan in December 52 on board the Simon B. Buckner and landed in Seattle and sent to Ft. Lewis. Fed a good meal and then by train to Ft. Ord. Arrived there on December 23. After a pass over Christmas reported back and honorably discharged on January 3, 1953. Kenneth J. Bond

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran - Korea

Comments: 700th EPD Co. originated as an active reserve unit, at Kilgore, Texas. We were the first reserve unit put on active duty, when the Korean War started. Activated on August 14, 1950 and sent to Ft. Belvoir, Va., for about 4 months, then to Japan, debarking in Tokyo, then sent by train to Yamaguchi, on the lower end of Honshu, for about 6 months, to build and operate water systems for some of the locals. I was Personnel clerk. In June, 1951, we were sent to Yokohoma Engr. Depot to set up and operate a pipe (pipe, valves, fittings that were sent in from the Pacific islands) rehabilitation plant. At this time, the Company name was changed to 700th Engr. Pipeline Co. We worked with and supervised the indigineous personnel of Sagami Engr. Wks., who did the actual work. I was Production Clerk and Office Manager. The 700th was still operating in this capacity when the reservists began to be sent home. I was returned home at the end of June, 1952 and discharged from active duty, at Fort Hood, Texas, on July 6, 1952.

Keywords: The 700th was first the 700th Engineer Petroleum Distribution Company. Capt. Robert E. Wink was our CO. Brady Clark was our 1st Sgt. Company name was later changed (about June, 1951) to 700th Engr. Pipeline Co.
