The 955th FAB in Korea
by Thomas F. Cacciola, 955 FA Bn
When Tom Cacciola received the last Taro Leaf he called with reference to Al McAdoo’s article in Vol 64(2) Page 8, “5th RCT in Death Valley…” saying “I was there, I heard the Chinese bugles and whistles.”
The copy of the front page of the May 21, 1951 TARO NEWS (below) is from one of the many originals that Tom has at his home.
Tom was interested in telling me about the 955th FAB, which was in support of the 24th Division and more specifically the 5th RCT. Please read the lower portion of the above TARO NEWS.
Tom also took many excellent 35mm color photos of the 955th, one of which is reproduced here.
