Comments: The 165th MP Company (Escort Guard)was activated at Pusan, Korea on 28 October 1951 and allotted five (5) Officers and 152 Enlisted men. It was attached to HQ and HQ Detachment, MP Group 8137th Army Unit, an organization that administered the POW Camp at Koje-Do Island, South of Pusan, Korea. There the 165th was assigned the task of both collecting prisoners of war (POW's) from front-line units and guarding and escorting them to the Koje - Do Island POW Compound. On 16 October 1952, the 165th was reassigned to the Korean Communication Zone and relocated to Mosulpo, Korea, another prisoner of war (POW) facility on the island of Cheju, Korea. There the 165th was re-designated as the 165th MP Company (Escort Guard), but continued the mission of guarding prisoners. The Company remained at Mosulpo until after the cease-fire, when it was transferred into the Prisoner Of War (POW) Command. The POW Command took over the control and repatriation of prisoners of war (POW's) and refugees. The 165th MP Company (Escort Guard) was inactivated in Korea on 25 April 1954.
