He fought at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir surrounded by the Chinese army during the freezing cold winter of November-December 1950. He then went to Central Korea, the border between North and South at the 38th parallel. He stayed in South Korea until May 1951 and then came back to the US to a Naval Ammunition Depot in Bangor, Washington for 22 months of active duty.
