The 35th Infantry-The Rock of the Nam

Unit Info   Unit Info

On the 25th Division's right flank and north of the Haman breakthrough, the 35th Infantry Regiment at daylight, 1 September, still held all its positions except the low ground between Kŏmam-ni and the Nam River, which the two companies of ROK police had abandoned at midnight. [8/31 2400] (See Map V.)

In a counterattack after daylight, K Company and tanks had partially regained control of this area, but not completely. Large numbers of North Koreans, by this time, however, were behind the battle positions of the 35th Infantry as far as the Ch'irwŏn-ni and Chung-ni areas, six miles east of Kŏmam-ni and the front positions.
