Can anyone tell me how US Army infantry battalions were organized during the Korean War? I tried to google TOEs but ended up more confused than when I started. I just need to know how many rifle, weapons and/or support companies were assigned to each battalion and how many and what type of platoons in these companies.
I've see regimental rosters which showed four lettered companies (eg: Alpha through Delta) assigned to a battalion, but I'm not sure if they're all rifle cos or if one is a weapons co. I've also read documents which state the US system had three rifle cos as opposed to the British four.
Thanks in advance.

Companies would be lettered with the 1st Battalion having four companies: Three rifle companies: Able, Baker, Charlie with Dog as the Heavy Weapons Company.
2nd Battalion: Easy, Fox, George with How as Weps.
3rd Battalion: Item (J was not used as a company letter), King, Love with Mike as Weps.
Here's the 1952 TO & E for an infantry battalion: http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/s...9/id/831/rec/3
Here's the 1950 TO & E for an infantry regiment:
