Chapter 6
TASK FORCE GROWDON
21–24 March 1951

The other part of Operation Tomahawk was an armor-infantry task force assembled in Seoul to advance ahead of the I Corps troops and achieve a linkup with the 187th Airborne Regiment at Munsan-ni. The task force was built around the 6th Medium Tank Battalion from the 24th Infantry Division of IX Corps and was called Task Force Growdon after the tank battalion commander, Lt. Col. John S. Growdon. Capt. Edward C. Williamson, a combat historian who interviewed members of the unit and prepared a narrative report of the operation, describes the organization of the task force.

At 1830 hours, 21 March 1951, Lieutenant Colonel Growdon, accompanied by his S-3, arrived at I Corps headquarters at Suwon. Here he was briefed concerning the operation by Colonel Johnson, G-3 of I Corps, and told that Task Force Growdon must join up with the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team within twentyfour hours after the drop. Johnson and Growdon at that time decided on the composition of the task force, and the following units were selected:

6th Medium Tank Battalion [from 24th Infantry Division of
IX Corps]

2d Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment [from 3d Infantry
Division]

58th Armored Field Artillery Battalion [from 3d Infantry
Division]
