Army National Guard Units that Served in Korea

This list of Army National Guard units that served in Korea was taken from Appendix A of the booklet, When Are We Going? The Army National Guard and the Korean War, 1950-53, authored by Renee Hylton. This excellent booklet is available free of charge by writing: National Guard Bureau (PA), 1411 Jefferson Davis Highway, Suite 11200, Arlington, VA 22202-3231. The booklet is filled with excellent material and graphics, and comes highly recommended to Korean War Army National Guard veterans by The Korean War Educator.  One detail about the 30th Ordnance Battalion was changed by the Korean War Educator and, as it appears below, is no longer original to the book.  On page 48, the book states that the 30th Ordnance was from North Carolina.  However, CPT Art Roscoe of the 119th Corps Support Battalion was doing some historical research and came across the reference on the KWE.  We appreciate the fact that he notified us about the incorrect state listing.  The error wasn't the KWE's, but we are happy that Art caught it.  We subsequently changed the 30th's listing to reflect the correct information.
