UDT - Korean War Era Stories

The U. S. Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams, UDT, came out of World War TWO a much small group than the large force which made up the Teams during the war. That small group served as the nucleus, and the experienced hands who were invaluable to the Teams in 1950 when once again UDT became vital to the war effort. This webpage links the stories written about UDT from 1946 until 1961, fifteen years of Team history. The Korean War occupied the Teams for only three of those years yet that war defined the era. We hope to publish stories from all those fifteen years.
