"Eye Corps" was formerly stationed in Kyoto, Japan, to control the 24th and 25th Infantry Divisions but was inactivated on 28 March 1950. It was reactivated on 2 August 1950 at Pt. Bragg, N.C., from the former V U.S. Corps Headquarters.

I U.S. Corps arrived in Japan on 6 September 1950, becoming operational in Korea on 13 September.

It remained in Korea until 1971, when it was reduced to zero strength and later returned to the States.

August 19, 1950

Anticipating future offensive operations in Korea, General MacArthur on 19 August requested troops for two corps headquarters and asked that these two corps be designated I and IX Corps. [21-14]

September 1950

The first such major action took place in September 1950 when the ROK 1st Division was attached to the U.S. I Corps. About the same time the ROK 17th Regiment was attached to the U.S. X Corps for the Inch'ŏn landing. Over such attached units the ROK Army Chief of Staff made no attempt to exercise control.
