MAR 7, 19 (Part 1 of 2) .. KOREAN WAR .. MEMORIAL HALL FOR THE INCHEON LANDING OPERATION


When the Korean War erupted on June the 25th of 1950, I was age 13 and was about to enter High School. I vividly remember that the United States was at war over in a country called Korea. 

That same summer of 1950, I visited a friend's summer home. His father had been a member of the United States Marine Corps during WWII. This is germane because, beginning with the Incheon Korea amphibious landing on September 15th 1950, the Marine Corps was active in the Korean War. So I overheard discussions my friend's father had with his wife about the Korean War and the Marine Corps being involved.


Having been a U.S. Marine, I visited various Korean War Memorial sites during two recent visits to South Korea. Because of my visits, the Korean War has become very vivid to me.

This post (Part 1 of 2) shows photos that I snapped inside of the interior of The Memorial Hall for the Incheon Landing Operation, located in Osan, South Korea.

Part 2 of 2 that follows this post will show photos that I snapped of the exterior displays.


If you turn to the right at the below sign, in an earlier Post I showed you the Incheon Metropolitan City Museum.

Now we are going to turn left and proceed to the Memorial Hall for the Incheon Landing Operation.




This Post focuses almost entirely on the interior of the building designated as attraction number 3 below. I also show four photos of the statue that is attraction number 1.


The below plaque sets-the-tone of the museum.



The Incheon Amphibious Landing of September 15th 1950 was staged at three principal locations in Japan. In addition troops were also brought up from Pusan at the tip of Korea.


Below in black and white : The 1st Division of the United States Marine Corps was the landing force that came ashore at Incheon.


Following this Post, in Part 2 of 2, I show some photos of the Marine Corps displays. In the summer of 1958, I served briefly in the 1st Division.









Inside of the Memorial Hall we now walk.

























I did not ever see combat but from military exercises while in the Marine Corps I know what it feels like to ride in a Landing Craft Vehicle Personnel (LCVP) or Peter Boat shown below.


The time has come to say farewell to the Memorial Hall for the Incheon Landing Operation.


Please scroll down to Part 2 of 2 following this Post.

I hope that you take something from my visit. It was a very intense visit for me.

Semper Fidelis .. Cap
