"Pat" Plus on Hill 355
MK note: Not trusting any part of his 1951-1952 photo album to the vagaries of the U. S. Mail, R. C. "Pat" O'Connor (#21) was kind enough to mail me photo-stats of six original photos taken on Hill 355 in early 1952. I have scanned, resized, and edited those copies - and I have posted the results below. The photos were all taken during the time that Pat was the Platoon Leader of the Weapons Platoon, Company G, 15th Infantry Regiment, Third Infantry Division.
Thanks, Pat, for sharing the photos with us.
Descriptions of the photos, also posted below, are Pat's and are unedited. Maybe Pat, or some other Hill 355 guys who are now in our Bunker, will have an "add-on" or other comment for this page. MK.
