COMBAT STORIES FROM Korea

Jack King | 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division

5:28   |   How was the weather up there? Marine mortarman Jack King will give you an earful about the weather in Korea, especially the freezing cold in the north. He remembers a time when he had on two of everything and it didn't really work. During the retreat from the Chosin Reservoir, it was at least 30 degrees below zero. (This interview made possible with the support of RALPH J. TINGLE.)
