Photo taken from beached LST. Its lowered ramp was too far from shore to offload the 24th Med Bn advance party of men and vehicles returning to Korea from Sasebo to replace the 1st Marine Div at Pobwon-ni. The neutral officers of the armistice inspection team waited while a bulldozer kept pushing dirt and sand out into the water to create a land bridge. The dirt and sand kept washing away to the sides. Eventually we were able to offload, gas up, and drive 3 hours north through Seoul to Pobwon-ni. In an open jeep and bitter cold, I was a human icicle when we arrived at the 1st Marine Div's medical unit. It took a while for me to fully thaw out.
