On the night of February 19 1952, a C-46 carrying Aviary Jumpmaster MSG Davis Harrison, Assistant Jumpmaster Corporal George Tatarakis, 8240th agent handler CPL Dean Crabb and 6 Chinese agents approached the first of 3 drop zones at low altitude over Wonsan.

  6. I hope this post finds everyone doing well. I Just added a lot of new content to all areas of the 8240th AU website. One of the things I added was the original 6th Partisan Infantry Regiment chronological events log which you will find interesting. The hand written log, brought back by MSG Charles Lamb covers the 6th Partisan Infantry Regiments daily significant activities from 2 March 1954 - 23 January 1954. https://www.8240th.com Matt Force matt@8240th.com 989-627-0864
