(1) In the European Theater, additional truck companies were attached to the Transportation Bn that was organic to Div Trains.
(2) According to doctrine for the period, the Administration Company should have been organic to Division Trains. However, some sources indicate that the 24th Admin Co was a separate company under HQ 24th Inf Div. Can anyone provide details?

(1) According to doctrine for the period (FM 54-2, 1961 and 1965), the Administration Company should have been organic to Division Support Command. However, some sources I have for the 1967-68 period, indicate that the 24th Admin Co was a separate company under HQ 24th Inf Div. Can anyone provide details?

 
24th Supply & Transportation Battalion
(Source: Email from Bob Melson, S-1 Sec, 24th S&T Bn, 1960s)
During the early/mid-60's, up to the time of the 24th Division's redeployment to the US (1968), the 24th S&T was unique in that it had a Detachment "C," charged with operating the airfield at Schleissheim

I don't know when the detachment was established but know it was part of the 24th S&T - I was the battalion S-1 for a part of that time.

The TOE organization of the 24th S&T Battalion was pretty much typical: HHC, A (Supply & Service), B (Transport), with Det "C" as a non-standard "add-on" which probably was a result of Division not knowing where to put the airfield operations detachment.

There were no other lettered/numbered attachments at that time. The battalion, with the exception of Det "C," was located on Sheridan Kaserne, Augsburg, Germany.
