With his communications broken southward to the 2nd Division headquarters and the 9th Infantry, General Haynes during the day decided to send a tank patrol down the Yŏngsan road in an effort to re-establish communication. Capt. Manes R. Dew, commanding officer of C Company, 72nd Tank Battalion, led the tanks southward. They had to fight their way down the road through enemy roadblocks. Of the three tanks that started, only Dew's tank got through to Yŏngsan. There, Captain Dew delivered an overlay of Task Force Haynes' positions to General Bradley. [24-28]
