Comments: My Husband, Clarence Shook, was in the Korean War with
reservist who served in WW2. There is no record of his battalion
serving. He served in 369th SCARWAF EAB. He wasn't on the boat
battalion that is listed but his group from the Army on loan for
work in the European theater for Special Circumstances has dropped
out of record. They dug water wells in Europe during the Korean War.
The men in this battalion were from everywhere and in the Reserves
where they had enlisted after serving in WW2. We have looked and
looked. This was in 1953. He was in the Army, on loan to the Air
Force Engineers - 369th Battalion SCARWAF EAB. Do you have any
information at all on this unit since there were those who served in
WW2 in this? It appears to be lost to history. I just might write a
book about this group if I can get some location of these people in
this group. Thank you,
