Peace talks in abeyance since 23 August near resumption, as liaison officers, meet to discuss selection of a new parley site. The Far East Air Force maintains its domination of the air over Korea. Despite intense jet opposition in the north UN naval forces sustained their blockade of both coasts and continued with heavy Shore bombardments. Prime targets are transportation, centers and coastal railway lines on the line. The main effort occurs in the central sector, with a coordinated Bush stretching along a 40 mile front on the flanks of this main drive. Blocking positions hold the line, while patrol stabbed, northward advances are made in the area above young Chon and in drives toward Pyongyang and Combe song. The fighting is indecisive, as the enemy strives desperately to hold his key positions crossing a dam in no man’s land west of kumoi men of the links Red Raider, platoon, 14th Regiment. 25Th division approached Hill 404, which is held by communist forces, while friendly elements in other parts of the Western central sector are consolidating their recently gained hilltop vantage points, the Raider platoon probes, northward, seeking contact with the enemy. The Raiders mission is to locate Chinese positions and give exact firing data to mortar teams with the red positions located. Allied mortars take over in emergencies. What Music Music shells are timed for air bursts over the enemy? This method of firing is particularly effective when disposition of opposing forces is not known for point to heavy mortar fire, renders the hilltop untenable and, as the Reds withdraw he’ll fall for balls to the UN forces north of young chan in another phase of the general offensive.

But third division advances against well dug in enemy positions at the hoping Valley. This action is typical of the fitter skirmishes being fought throughout the area mounting enemy opposition estimated regimental in strength brings the UN advance to a temporary halt. The friendly forces increase their firepower and the battle reaches a stalemate: Music, Music, Music, Music, small sized hostile units attempt to counter thrust but are swiftly repelled by the men of the 65th casualties, attended to the sharp fighting begin arriving at the field. Medical station. Corpsman of the third medical battalion give prompt attention to the wounded, thus cutting down the mortality rate, complete casualty tags which must accompany each patient to the field. Hospital are carefully written up as emergency treatment is being administered on the spot. Transfusions of blood plasma reduce the effects of shock, enabling the wounded to withstand the rigors of evacuation. Meanwhile, enemy pockets of resistance are cleaned out, as the sixty fifth completes. Its mission, Music, General Omar Bradley chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff visits Korea. For a first hand, view of battle conditions with generals, Ridgeway and Van Fleet. He arrives by Leia’s on plane for a review of the combat units and a discussion of the tactical situation on hand to welcome the group. Our general Clovis, a buyer’s commander, tenth Corps and general Robert and young second division, commander general Bradley, takes this opportunity to meet and congratulate individuals who have shown distinguished service Music impressions gained by the general during his frontline visits.

Allow him to better evaluate the current situation during the visit. Presentations are made to a number of Combat Infantryman for heroic and meritorious service in recent campaigns. Music working on a tight schedule of only five days in the Far Eastern theatre general Bradley moves on to other frontline sectors. In his tour of inspection, the general expressed sincere confidence in all the Allied forces in Korea, Music, the Ashiya airbase in Japan becomes a scene of multiple activity as the 8080 first quartermaster aerial supply and packaging company begins preparations for an aerial resupply mission to frontline troops. In Korea, moving supplies from storage areas to the airfield is the first step in dropping the exact equipment at the exact spot. At the exact time, officers of the qm supply outfit receive a thorough briefing of the mission to ensure a smooth rapid operation and a minimum of loss. Highly trained and experienced personnel supervise the entire procedure of readying each individual piece of equipment for its ultimate air descent. The QM drops of today utilize experience gained as far back as the island huffing days of world war, two when the quartermaster first utilized the technique of resupplying from the air. Each small operation has undergone extensive research and development before it becomes a standardized procedure capable of being performed by relatively inexperienced personnel. Every stage of packaging has been simplified and modernized, for example, to expedite handling every item, whether it be ammunition or a three quarter.

Ton truck is placed on a loading board. Boards are easily moved over roller conveyors saving time and labor. Extreme care is used during the inspection and rigging of the parachutes. This is a critical procedure, since a majority of losses during the drop are caused by malfunctioning of the chute. When the chute functions properly correctly, packed and lashed equipment properly ejected sustains, no damage in the drop containers are normally used to deliver small sized equipment such as ammunition, gasoline small arms rations, water clothing, signal equipment and small sized medical and engineer supplies before the packed items Leave the field they are again inspected and checked against the manifest, but kits have been developed for heavy drops. This one is for the 105 howitzer preparing a howitzer for aerial delivery requires know how, but each step has been reduced to a simple operation which can be performed in short time. A forklift raises the gun, while crash pads are put into place Music, when the crash frame designed to absorb most of the shock is in place, the shoots risers are attached to the load and the loading and lashing job is completed Music. Another heavy drop aerial kit is used to prepare the 34 ton truck needed to tow the gun. The vehicle is fully gassed and ready to operate. Each small item of the kit is of vital importance and aerial kits are now being standardized for the drop of even larger trucks and other heavy equipment.

The planning, research and development of each aerial kit is a joint operation between Army and Air Force. The kits undergo an extensive series of field tests and receive many modifications before they are accepted for combat operations. The QM Corps responsible for the training of army personnel, supply and maintenance of all airborne equipment and the preparations for the drop for cease. Continual expansion in the technique of aerial resupply under combat conditions, trucks, move the equipment from the rigging area to waiting c 119 s and Air Force personnel who take over the responsibility of flying the supplies to the dropping zone, skate roller conveyors, set in the floor of The plane ease the job of stowing heavy cargo. These conveyors are essential to the ejection of the cargo aircrews receive a most important last minute: briefing on weather conditions, including details over the limited target area, emergency heavy drops by arielle resupply circumvents, fixed enemy, defenses and severe natural obstacles. It reduces obstacles in distance and time and delivers equipment and supplies to areas inaccessible to normal supply routes. Aerial resupply provides field commanders with the means of maintaining units which have outrun their normal supply channels in fast moving operations of reconnaissance or exploitation. Aerial resupply is, of course, invaluable to units which are isolated or trapped behind the enemy’s line. Quartermaster airborne personnel of the 8080 first drop with the supplies to supervise the job of unleashing the equipment and recovering drug paraphernalia for further use Music when they carry equipment.

Planes fly with their clamshell doors, remove approaching the drop zone, the planet blowers the tail of the plane and notifies the druk master. To unleash the load. An extraction chute then frees the cargo. The entire load is out in 3 and 12 seconds. Rapid ejection ensures the landing of men and equipment in close proximity and saves valuable minutes during the consolidation. 85 of all cargo dropped is recovered and put to use Music. It takes three minutes to unleash a jeep and drive it away. It takes only 20 minutes to unleash a 105 millimeter howitzer and have it in action. Qm personnel keep pace with modern warfare planning for the next jump ahead: Music at the touch Okawa airbase in japan, a c 119 flying boxcar is unable to land. After returning from a supply run over the Korean Battlefront because of a damaged landing gear, though, several passes are made over the runway in an effort to jar free the jammed landing gear, the pilot is unsuccessful with gasoline running low. The big plane prepares to crash land during these tense moments. Final instructions between pilot and control tower take place and emergency ground units stand by executing a perfect belly landing. The 65000 pound cargo plane skids to a stop emergency ground crews, swarmed to the scene with fire equipment and medical aid. Complete inspection of this rugged craft reveals only minor damage to the right engine and prop plus a jammed rear fuselage.
