Happy 241st Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps!


Recommended Posts

Excellent American Experience documentary recently aired on PBS about the Marines at the Battle of The Chosin Reservoir, 1950.

Also engaged with the Chinese were the 7th US Infantry Division and 41 Royal Marine Commando.
The Fabled "Task Force Drysdale" was named for its commander Lieutenant Colonel Douglas B. Drysdale, who also commanded 41 Commando.
At the time of the battle, US intelligence estimated 70-80,000 Chinese had infiltrated all of N. Korea when in reality 380,000 had done so.
I hope it works for folks outside the US.
