U.S. Military / Re: 5027th ASU - Can anyone Confirm or Correct This?

in this case, ASU refers to Army Service Unit. The first number indicates it's a 5th Army unit. Unusual for a CONUS unit to have an unauthorized DI, ifs that's what it is.

Lot of units in Korea (especially during the Korean War) were numbered 8xxx, for 8th Army. Have seen some 6s and 7s.

U.S. Military / 5027th ASU - Can anyone Confirm or Correct This?
« Last post by rconrad on November 15, 2018, 07:38:39 am »
I believe this to be the 5027th ASU, located at Fort Benjamin Harrison in the 1950s/1960s.  Google searches refer to "ASU" as meaning Army Supply Unit or Ammunition Supply Unit.  It may also be Army Service Unit or Army Schools Unit.  Anyone have any knowledge or this, or can point me to a good reference? :-\
