Curtis Banker | Reconnaissance Platoon, Headquarters and Service Company, 73rd Tank Battalion - Army

4:55   |   Curtis Banker's armored unit was part of the force that came into Hungnam to support the Infantry and Marines who were "advancing in a different direction" out of North Korea. After the evacuation of thousands of civilians and Allied personnel, and as they were sailing away, he saw the warehouses full of supplies burning, torched so the enemy would not benefit.
