I joined Battery A in Sept 1951 and served as a Chief of Section. Just now I am being to understand what happened at Chosin. The stories had been passed down to us from former members of the battery but too much was left out. It is hard to visualize the lost of that many men from an artillery battalion and these were just the Americans. I am glad to see the real story come out.

Task Force Faith/McLean has been a research and emotional interest of mine for years. Besides the historical drama, I am so impressed by the tremendous amount of loss and love that shines out of every E Mail I find on the internet. God Bless you all. J.O Leary PS: I will take the liberty of forwarding you a tribute I wrote some time ago about Task Force Faith and the love of the comrades and families who still survive.

Need to get the word out about this site. There are many more events that have stories to tell, that are keeping the info to themselves. Maybe we will have many more for the next reunion. Stay warm, Stay Dry.

I am a Korean Veteran myself and the experiences there were not all that pleasant. But I shudder whenever I see, or read accounts of the Regimental Combat Team's plight in the chosin reservoir encounter. One has only to experience the soul destroying winter climate of Korea, to be able to begin to appreciate the horror of the actions the Army 31st RCT participated in. To be cold and wet owing to the unsuitability of the clothing issued in the early part of that war, and hungry, with little prospect of a solution to any of those discomforts is daunting enough in itself, but at the same time, having to defend oneself against an overwhelming aggressive foe, bent on your destruction is a frightening scenario, the unit fully deserves the Korean Presidential Citation Award.

This is a wonderful site but brings tears. I am proud to know a member of the Chosin Few, Sgt Charles Bielecki and have heard from him of the battle there and at Hagaru-ri. I also know PVT George Hook, who was captured there and walked to Death Valley Camp and then on to other camps and was among the living dead until Big Switch. These men have stories that would break any heart but they are good soldiers and good men. I am so proud of them.
