Comments: The 8053 Army Unit/Sasebo Port Signal Detachment and our sister unit the 8052 Army Unit/Pusan Port Signal Detachment were formed within one week of the start War. We picked up most of our equipment in Yokohama. The units were compossed from personnel form Signal units through-out Japan with majority coming from elements of the 72 Signal Service Bn. The units moved out(via train) in late June 1950 and by July 2 1950 the 8053 had established communications to serve the 8071 Army Unit/Sasebo Transportion Port Detachemnt and the 8068 Repl Depot which was locted out side of Sasebo at Camp Mower (formerly the used by 34 Inf Regt 24 Div which had shipped out week earlier to Korea).The 8053 also was charged with operation of the Radio Relay Site on the island of Tushima to provide communications (telephone/teletype) between Japan and Korea The 8052 went to work with the 8072 Pusan Transportation Port Detachment and 8969 Repl Depot. Both units were small about 40 members each We did what was expected and got the message through.

Comments: trying to locate other members of the 8053rd who
stationed in japan from 1951 to 1954

My unit was a signal unit and we ran ommunications
in the town of Sasebo. The Japanese telephone
exchange was under our control. We had a teletype
line to the 8068th repodepo and a line to Toyko.

We also had radio communications and daily we
picked up messages at the 7th fleet act building.

We were considered direct support for the troops
in Korea.
