The I Co Casualty List from Chosin Reservoir, North Korea, November 27, 1950



All of the companies and units of the 31st RCT stationed at the Chosin Reservoir lost many men; and many more men were wounded or suffered from frostbite. More than half of the entire 31st RCT never returned home.

The following is a representation of just one of the 31st RCT companies. This I Co list includes both deceased and men who were seriously wounded. Let us honor the memory of all the men - living or perished that have seen the waters, the mountains, the coldness, the Battle at the Chosin Reservoir. (This list is not exact, but should be a good representation of I Co men, since all names may not be in the "Purple Heart Recipient List" that should be.)

Thanks to the 7th Division 31st Regiment Casualty List. Here's the address: Korean War Casualties, US Army

The I Co list has been composed from various sources. The two prime sources of information came from Tom Mainhart. (Tom's Uncle, James T. Mainhart ,was an I Company cook at Chosin. James was Killed in Action at the reservoir on November 30th, 1950. Tom was named in honor of his Uncle that he never knew.) Tom supplied me with the morning reports from Chosin and the I Co roster from July 1950. Tom also gave me an I Co fatality list from A. Snyder, a fellow I Co Veteran who joined after Chosin.
Others sources of information came from I Co men themselves.
I also added any names that EAST OF CHOSIN mentioned on I Co.
I then checked each name on 2 databases - at THE KOREAN WAR PROJECT and THE 7TH DIVISION 31ST REGIMENT CASUALTY LIST

If the name is on one of the databases, I have listed thier full information below. If the name is not found on the databases, I have only listed a last name and the source.
