The US Army Archives are documents produced by the US Army who were handed over the operational command. They contain the general set of strategies, tactics, personnel and administrative work during the Korean war. there is a problem of each collected the US Army Archive being categorized in one criteria of Korea related archives located abroad regardless of their characteristics. In order to resolve such a problem this research have organized a new archive management department. Even if the categorization method of original source is unknown if domestic institutions manage through a huge archive management department called the US Army Archives management department, users will experience maximized efficiency in usage. Also the US Army Archives are not documents that are transferred by administration ministries based on archive management law but rather have characteristics of manuscripts that are collected in small amounts with allocated budged on national institutions when needed. So far it is limited to NARA possessed documents but in the future archives such as random collections on numerous items, files, and series of data from McArther memorial hall or President Truman memorial library will be collected depending on the research task projects or research tasks of council on past affairs. By placing each group from the sub level of archive management department in order, effective use and systematic management will be possible.
