Korean War (1950 - 1953)

The Korean War or Korean UN Police Action would bring the Transportation Corps back to heavy involvement in the Pacific region. Although the Corps had continued to support the various forces in the Pacific following the end of World War II, the conflict would see us expanding the routes and adding new technologies. Korea provided the first opportunity for the Transportation Corps to test its newest mode of transportation, making extensive use of helicopters for the first time. The most recognizable was the H-13 Sioux used for reconnaissance but was most well-known for medical evacuation due to the starring role in the movie and television show "M.A.S.H." Helicopters would redefine the nature of combat in during this war, ushering in a new era of mobility for Army forces. This new mode only added to the other Transportation modes, with truck, rail and watercraft all continuing to serve widely in Korea.
