U.S. Army Sgt. Robert Glenn Holquist, was serving with the 60th Mortar Company in
Korea during 1952 when he was awarded the Bronze Star medal. He never spoke much
of his time in Korea, but I believe his unit saw action around the 38th Parallel.

He was born and raised in Oil City, PA.

received his service records but there is nothing from Korea. I called the
National Archives and was very tersely informed that if I didn't receive records of
his service in Korea they don't exist. He was in the Army. The agent told me that
the records must not have been sent to the archives. I can't understand how this
could happen. My father served over 2 years in Europe during the 2nd World War,
and then was sent to Korea. He was depressed all the time I knew him and I am just

That is all I know. I have incurable cancer and would love to pass on my dads service history to my children and my grandchildren before I pass on. I never had any interest in the Korean war until I ran across the 3 photos of him in uniform in Korea. I was so ignorant of what that war was about and never realized the horrors the soldiers endured. My dad is a hero to me in a way now that he never was when he was alive and I'm so sorry for that. The fire in St. Louis con consumed his army records so if there is another way to piece his military timeliness back together please let me know! Thank You! I do remember him saying he was Airborne, 82nd I think. DOB 14May1933.

Comments: I am doing a shadowbox for my mother-in-law in honor of her husband. I have his DD-214 but I am having trouble understanding the correct units/division.

His DD-214; It shows he was in the ERC Quartermaster Corp assigned in the 5th Army District. Further is has his most significant Duty Assignment as Composite Service Company 8023 AU Camp Mower APO 27. I know that Camp Mower was in Japan and he has a Japan Logical Command Patch. I assume his collar disc would be a Quartermaster however in his possession I found an Engineers disc and no Quartermaster disc. Which would be correct. What is the 3023 AU as I don't find any reference to it and would his left shoulder patch be the JLC and the right the 5th Army? He never spoke of his WWII and Korean service and now that he is gone I wish I had known about his service so I could ask him.
Thanks
