The B Company 4th Infantry Battalion USMC Marines were called to active duty on August 21, 1950. All 227 Marines marched
down the main street in Duluth, Minnesota and boarded a troop train. B Company sustained over 80 percent casualties, ten
K.I.A´s, and one P.O.W. who was held for thirty-three months. These brave Marines saw extensive combat action, from
Inchon to the Changjin (Chosin) Reservoir and the fight back to the sea, with extreme weather conditions where the
temperature fell below -40 degrees and deep snow impeded every effort. Some of the medals earned by these Marines include
four Silver Stars, six Bronze Stars, two Naval Commendations, and seventy-nine Purple Hearts.
