Miryang, South Korea


On 22 July, however, the rescue flight at  Ashiya sent an H-5 helicopter detachment to Taegu, which soon attracted General Partridge's notice. In a few days, moreover, the Eighth Army's surgeon called on the helicopters to help him evacuate critically wounded soldiers from front-line aid stations to the 8076th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital at Miryang and the 8054th Hospital in Pusan. The helicopter could operate in the mountainous and rice-paddy terrain where the liaison planes could not function.
