Joe Compton was motor pool officer..Best person I met while serving in Korea, Alabama boy.. I lucked out getting assigned to that outfit..Unless there were two times it happened, the explosion at the service station was more towards the summer of 53 not the Spring and it wasn't caused by bed check Charlie, it was caused by a stupid mistake.. The dump was located just outside of Inchon..I took a few pictures of the fire but, I don't know if I still have them..I still have my Ike Jacket with the patch of KCOMZ on it and tried to purchase new ones and they can't be had, GO FIGURE

Comments: Following is a overview of my past while I was in the Army in Post war
Japan. Let me know if anyone has some additional information about
the units I was affilated with or individuals I've known in the past while
serving in Japan and Korea.

I arrived in Yokohama on Dec 26, 1946 via the USAT General LeRoy
Eltinge troop ship. I was assigned to the 805 Army Marine Ship Repair
Company. Soon after I arrived, our company went to Atsugi for infantry
training for 8 weeks. After completing training, our company went
back to Yokohama and worked at Asano Dock until July 1949. During
this time (1948) our company was disbanded and was assigned to the
243rd Port Company. Soon after, I re-enlisted and left Yokohama on
the USAT General Hugh J. Gaffey and arrived in San Francisco. I
traveled to Camp Stoneman and soon after took the bus back to
VanCouver, WA for my three months re-enlistment leave.
In October 1949, I went back to Yokohama on the USAT General Daniel
I. Sultan. Here I trained to operate crane trucks. Then on the morning
of July 4th 1950, our company was notified at 1 A.M. to start preparing
to leave for Korea. On July 11th, I left for Korea on the LT-636 Ex Navy
Tug Boat working as an Oiler in the engine room. We pulled two barges
with two crawler cranes, PT boat, and two J Boats (Patrol Boats). We
arrived in Pusan approximately on July 23rd. Here, I worked in the
8057 Port Company in the ration break down area. It was during this
time, I saw a US flat bed Studebaker truck and a Russian jeep brought
in from North Korea. The jeep was larger then a US Army jeep, but it
appeared to be very similar in design.
On January 7th, 1952 my wife and I traveled back to San Francisco, CA
on the USAT General Andersen. I was discharged from the Army on
August 25th, 1952 in Fort Bliss, Texas.

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: I was a Sgt, assigned to a transportation port company
in Yokohama on arrival from the States in mid-June
1950. After the war broke out in Korea, almost everyone
in my company, plus several officers and NCOs from Hq
2nd Major Port, were attached to a provisional unit,
Transportation Port Company 8057th AU (Provisional). It
was a company but the CO was a LTC. The XO was a MAJ.
It 31 M/Sgts. CO was LTC Harlow O. Tubbs. We moved to
Pusan on or about 5 July. Initially, we were attached
to 24th Inf Div, the only higher hq in Korea at the
time. A few days later, we were attached to Pusan
Logistal Command (Provisional).

Later in July, we individuals attached to 8057th
Provisional were reassigned to newly organized
Transportation Company 8057th AU. Pusan Log Command
(Provisional) became 2nd Logistical Command. The 8057th
ran the Pusan port until 7th Transportation Major Port
arrived from the States (Fort Hamilton NY). Then the
8057th was assigned to 7th Port as augmentation to
their headquarters.

During the period that the US held a large part of
North Korea, several personnel from 7th Port and 8057th
were sent to Chinnampo, North Korea. They ran the port
there until they were run out by the Chinese.

I left Korea in December 1951. The 8057th was still in
Pusan at that time.
