I'm searching for any information on the 176th Armored Field Artillery Battalion. I think my
grandfather was in this unit but I'm not to sure. I have a old clipboard of his when he served in Korea.
His name was Harvey A. Morrow. On the inside of his clipboard it has handwritten "Btry. C 176th Armd
F.A. BN." His name is stamped on the front, so I know it was his. Now where I get confused is that
when I asked my father about it he says that my grand father was in the regular army for 18 years. And he
thinks it was the 5th Calvary. I'm going by his clipboard. He also received the bronze star
medal and on his certificate his serial number in NGxxxxxxxx which to my understanding the NG stands for
So my question to you is.. Is there anywhere I can find a list of the men who served in this 176th
battalion in the Korean War? Or is there a way to find out what he might have done to receive the Bronze
Star medal? Or was this something that the whole battalion received? His certificate reads For Meritorious
Achievement In Ground Operations Against The Enemy.
I'm very interested on finding this information. I was not close with my grandfather due to
divorce in my family. I knew him, but was not close. He passed away in 1993. I really
would like to honor him by pursuing his history and what he accomplished in his life.
Thanks for taking the time to read this ... and any help or advice on where to obtain this information
you could give would be great.

I am a Korea war veteran who served with "B" Battery, 189th Field Artillery Battalion in Korea from
March 1953 until November 1953. I was at Heartbreak Ridge and Sandbag Castle. If anyone can
confirm our human waves attacks at the end of April 1953 near the Sandbag Castle or our other actions,
please let me know. It would mean a lot to verify my VA claim.
