Korea, May, 1953: War-weary soldiers crouch in a ditch while enemy mortar shells drop nearby. These same infantrymen helped fight off a division of Chinese communists at Outpost Elko a few hours earlier. A company commander said of the fighting at Elko and Outpost Carson, "when I think back over it, the whole thing seems like a bad dream."
