My wife and I were driving a few months back and noticed the license frame on an older gentleman's car that said 'The Chosin Few' and we wondered what that meant. We googled it while in the car and learned of the fierce battle these men fought.
If you have never heard of the Chosin Reservoir battle, it is the one of the hardest fought battles by the US Marines, 8:1 odds in the worst environment imaginable -40 degrees.
These men are true hero's and I wish now that I could have shaken his hand.
There is also a really well made documentary I recently watched directed by Brian Iglesias titled The Frozen Chosin. WOW is all I can say!
