Talked to my uncle yesterday and asked him some questions. He told me he was in the 23rd Inf. He got there right in thick of things. Said he was station 22 miles north of the 38th parallel. He carried a M1 Garand and he said in his squad they had 1 BAR. He stayed on the front lines for 11 months. He told me the Chinese start using kids and gave they bold rifles and the regulars used burp guns(maybe pph's) and sks's. I asked him why he was only there 11 months and he said they were on a point system. The more you stayed on the front the more points you got. Once you've accumulated enough points they shipped you home. He has a plaque with all him medals and awards he received over there. I didn't asked him to go into details but he didn't mind telling me what I asked. It was like he wanted to talk about it.
