Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Al Thielke | B Co., 1st Battalion, 7th Regiment, 1st Marine Division - Marines

2:06   |   While riding in open trucks on the way to Seoul, Thielke and his men endured extremely harsh weather. They adapted to the bitter cold by retooling their C-rations and canteens, but many of the men, including Thielke, suffered from frostbite. Unfortunately for one man, the frostbite had permanent effects on his body.
