The Korean War

During the Korean conflict many Maine guardsmen volunteered for service, however none of Maine’s units were sent overseas.  The 703rd Antiaircraft Artillery Gun Battalion and the 354th Signal Radar Maintenance Unit, Type C were mobilized and ordered into active Federal service on August 14, 1950 at South Portland and Augusta to serve at installations within the continental United States, mainly around New York City.  The units were released from active service on April 13th, 1952 and November 15th, 1954, respectively.


There are no Maine National Guard units with campaign credit for the Korean War.
