6127th Air Terminal Group (315th Air Division)

6127th Air Terminal Group, Hq Detachment

The 6127th ATG detachments loaded and unloaded tons of Combat Cargo from aircraft per day. Assisted in the air evacuation of the sick and wounded and assisted in the transportation for the Rest and Recuperation program. Combat Cargo Division transports operated in both the logistical and tactical roles, delivering cargo and personnel to airfields in Korea and airdropping supplies to ground units. Air evacuation of casualties was a major Combat Cargo mission, as wounded soldiers and Marines were airlifted to hospitals in Japan aboard returning transports..
