    Seeking APO listing for Far East Command stations

    Anthony Bard Wayfarer

      I am looking for an RG reference and detailed finding aid for the following: ‘II.506 Security-classified A.P.O. [Army Post Office] station lists, 1951–53 [A1, Entry 88] (1 ft.), consist of various Far East Command station lists arranged chronologically by date of publication. The lists correlate APO code numbers to units, bases, and mailing areas in Korea.’ The description is Research Information Paper no. 102 on Korean War holdings in the National Archives.

          Dear Mr. Bard,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Army Post Office Station Lists, 12/16/1951 - 12/31/1953 in the Records of General Headquarters, Far East Command, Supreme Commander Allied Powers, and United Nations Command (Record Group 554) that consist of various Far East Command station lists arranged chronologically by date of publication. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
