Operation Roundup

Show Summary Details


The American support units of the ROK 8th Division and the ROK 3d Division were placed in danger because of the fall of these divisions. The enemy furthered south so that Support Teams A and B as well as Support Forces 7 and 21 could not escape. The defense of Saemal, Hoengsong, and other important escape routes determined the successful withdrawal. The enemy forces first took on the 38th Infantry that held Saemal. This chapter first looks into Captain Tate's experience as battalion S-3, how the War Diary of the Tank Company in the 38th Infantry Regiment described the patrol in Hoengsong, and how Cpl. James Lee provided additional information regarding the combat action.
