Chosin Reservoir – Korea

The battle of the Chosin Reservoir pitted 15,000 allied ground troops against 120,000 Chinese infantrymen. The ten Chinese divisions, along with North Korean forces, were on a mission: wipe out the Marines, the Army, and all of the allies.

“The night of our operations at Chinhung-Ni was the coldest night on record in Korea. It was 48 degrees below zero,” Tom remembers.

The survivors asked that this not be forgotten.
