Memories of Service 3 - Vince Pierson

Web (Full Length) – 2016

It wasn’t a very nice place at different times, Korea; it was ferocious when the Chinese came in. It turned the tables on the Americans.
– Vince Pierson
They ran into a band of guerrillas operating in that region. So they were machine-gunned as they came round the bend. Poor old Ron was killed immediately...
– Vince Pierson
The Chinese as they came through, they kept to the high country — so as soon as the Americans opened up with their guns on the right, the Chinese came down and just wiped out the whole outfit. So luckily for us we never fired a shot. We didn’t expose the fact that we were there so we were able to sneak out the back door. Good management? Good luck? I don’t know which.
