The Photo above was taken in the fall of 1952 from the trench about 150 feet to the west of the CASTLE. Orginally I was a member of the Second squad First Platoon in reserve behind the castle. Sam Davis was the squad leader and Redwing was asistant squad leader. Sam was killed there during the North Korean attack March of 1953.

The photo to the upper right was taken at the same time and from about the same location but looking more to the west looking down the valley and towards HeartBreak ridge. If I remember correctly this was the jump off spot for the patrols we ran down the ridge to the left in the upper photo. There was an OP manned about 100 feet in front of this position every night .


If any of you have pictures you would like to add to this page you may contact me thru my e mail address at rreahard@yahoo.com .
