There was only one American Airborne (paratroop) Regiment in the Korean War. The 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team. This Regiment made three jumps in Korea. Two of which were combat jumps behind enemy lines. The other was a practice jump in the area of Taegu. The first combat jump
was made at Sukchon and Sunchon in October 1950. The second combat jump was made at Munsan-ni in March 1951. There was no combat jumps after March of 1951.
I have personal and intimate knowledge of the Regiment's history as I was a member of Company B during that war and made all jumps with it.
