Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Korea

Ralph McKay | 1st Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment

3:48   |   Ralph McKay was at Hill 355 on the front line in Korea. It was during the stalemate period and each side watched the other across the valley between them, occasionally firing artillery or mortars. One mortar shell killed the Canadian unit's cook, their first fatality. McKay was disturbed after he picked up his dead friend, but in those days, you dared not say anything about your feelings.
