It's a ton of information to research through, but I'm guessing these sites might be helpful to your question.
Search button in the top right corner --- "artillery", or narrow it down as suggested above by picking an Infantry Division (number), search for example "3rd Infantry Division Artillery" and it will lead to the various artillery regiments assigned to that division in different times. Searching "Korea Artillery" also yields a lot of hits for your time frame.
I've also found this site useful and interesting for the Army during 1950-53. I recognize that probably north of 90% of the jeeps in Korea at the time were re-built MB's, but the site has useful unit relationship information, as well as gut-wrenching personal experiences.

Just acquired a worn, stained and weathered book (yearbook?) on Combat Command B of the 5th Armored Division in 1951. The 5th was a training division at Camp Chaffee, Arkansas at that time. There were four artillery units in the division: Companies A, B, C and D, 542nd Field Artillery Battalion, 5th Armored Division.
Thank you. Yes real units would be the goal. Now I have to study the down loads for how that is formatted for the bumper and bumperettes. _________________ 1952 Dodge M37, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car Undergoing factory original restoration, 1944 WC-51 Weapons , (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators

Checking my copy of “5th armored Division Camp Chaffee Ark. ‘51 I found no Jeeps, but several pages in is a halftrack named “Copenhagen” with bumper inscription 5 (armor sign) 461. On the Special Staff Page is a photo of my late father, Maj. James C. Starbird, Chemical Officer. He ran the gas chamber, and once showed me the effects of tear gas. Thanks a lot, Dad! That’s why I never joined a riot in college!!
No problem, anytime. Markings are my specialty. If you need any help you can always check out my decal site http://www.deltateamdecals.com/ We make custom markings in both decals and paint masks.
I WILL keep you in mind. I have several vehicles that are nearing the marking phase. _________________ 1952 Dodge M37, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car Undergoing factory original restoration, 1944 WC-51 Weapons , (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators
