Comments: I am doing research about the 77th Medium Tank Battalion during the Korean War as part of a larger project that will cover the 77th Armor from WW II to the present. Will appreciate any information from occupation duty in post-WWII Japan, deployment to South Korea with 7th Infantry Division as the 31st Med Tank Co under Captain Drake and post Chosin Reservoir combat to October 1951 deactivation. Was the unit reactivated later in the war?

Comments: To my knowledge the 77th Med Tank Battalion was stationed on the northern island of Japan and was split into the 17th, 31st, and 32nd Infantry Divisions as tank companies when the Korean War broke out. The 77th Tank Battalion was deactivated and was kept on paper only. The 77th was split into these 3 regiments as I was told by our company commander. I was with the 77th tank battalion in Japan and I understand we were the last ones to leave the 77th and be attached to the 31st Inf. Regiment. A W.O. was put in charge of the 77th Tank Battalion on paper, and he also went to Korea with the rest of us in the 31st in September of 1950.
