The 841st and 842nd Engineer Aviation Battalions (SCARWAF), arrived at Osan-Ni, Korea, in early June of 1952. Our mission was to build K-55 Air Base to handle the new jet engine fighters now in combat. I was with the 841st EAB Reserve Battalion based in Miami Florida. In April 1951 we were called to active duty and on June 2, 1951 sent to Ft. Huachuca Arizona for training. Next we went to Beale AFB, northern California in February before shipping out from San Francisco, May 16, 1952 on the General A. W. Brewster. We stopped in Yokohama Japan for a several hours and continued on to Pusan, Korea where we disembarked. From Pusan we headed north to Osan-Ni, about an hour south of Seoul. Bert Miller
