biography

This time Lieutenant Colonel Murray's plan was for the 1st and 2nd Battalions to advance up the Yŏngsan road with the 3d Battalion in support. The 2nd Battalion reached the road junction at about 0430 on 3 September, where it offloaded and began an administrative move to the line of departure. This road junction and the nearby heights were supposedly in American hands. Unfortunately, such was not actually the case.
