Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Jim Walsh | D Company, 1st Battalion, 35th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division - Army

5:38   |   Jim Walsh had the term "Killer From a Distance" applied to him by his squad leader, Ron Smith. Walsh had used his heavy machine gun to suppress Chinese fire and allow the squad to move forward. Later, Walsh would write a book with that title, referring to artillerymen on whom the infantry depended. Of all the weapons used in Korea, napalm was the most horrendous.
