By the morning of July 23 the NKPA was again on the move. Its 3d' Division and armored elements, deploying on both roads leading eastward to, Taegu, simultaneously struck the widely separated 1/8 and 2/8.

Robert Kane's; 1/8, equipped with 3.5-inch bazookas and backed by the steady and skilled 77th FAB, commanded by West Pointer (1933) William A. ("Billy") Harris, and A/A weapons, held stoutly on the Taegu - Taejon road.

 However, Eugene Field's 2/8, backed by Alden Hatch's 61st FAB, was promptly encircled and cut off.[6-44]
