    When hell freezes over: How the Corps plans to win a cold weather fight in Russia or North Korea

    Served along side a few officers and SNCO's who were Marine combat vets of the Korean War. Listened to their sea stories about the "Frozen Chosin" The freezing cold and massive Chi-Com frontal attacks whith Chi-Com bugles blowing and thousands of Ch-Com soldiers coming over the hill, bayonets fixed and the ice and snow and freezing weather.

    Knew more than a few Koreans war vets both Marines and soldiers who served in Korea during the war, They didn't talk about it much except how freaking cold it was.

    But I remember the first time I had to work outside when it was well below zero and I started thinking of the stories I was told, those poor son of bitches, how did they survive ?



    Excellent article below well worth reading.

    The Marine Corps has already proven how well it can attack in winter in N.Korea once before at the Chosin Reservoir.

    They were forced to attack in the opposite direction.

    The USMC would not stand a chance against Chicom or Russian infantry and tanks. There are too many Chicom's and Russians.

    Never bite off more than you can chew.

    The 1st Mar Div found itself surrounded by 10 Chi-Com divisions during the "Frozen Chosin."

    The Marines fought their way back to the sea where U.S.Marines are suppose to be in the first place.

    This is what happens when a million Chicoms run into you or you into them.
