Comments: Lt. Col. Charles Bussey, USA(Ret) writes in his book Firefight at Yechon: Courage and Racism in the Korean War,"the 77th ECC was a seperate all-black company assigned to the 25th Inf Div to provide black engineer support for the black 24th Inf Regt (of the 25th Inf Div). It was not a part of the white 65th Engineer Battalion, which provided engineer support for the rest of the division". Then-Capt. Bussey assumed command of the 77th ECC in May 1950 in Japan and took the Company to Korea in early July 1950.

Comments: PHOTO

My father-in-law (center).

Name: John Duffau.

Don't know the other 2 fellows, but know the one on the left was a boxer (in the Army?). John passed away last August. I'll be getting all his old Korean photos together and post them later at Photopoint and link them here.

I know he was in the Army Engineers, either construction or heavy equipment, but don't know which unit.
