At the start of the war, the ROKN was woefully under-funded, under-equipped, and under-trained, consisting of a few ex-U.S. and ex-Japanese vessels, including Bak Du San, 15 auxiliary motor minesweepers (mostly ex-Japanese), and one ex-U.S. landing tank ship tank (LST). On 24 July, dissatisfied with the ad hoc escort arrangement made for the Pohang landing, COMNAVFE established a dedicated Escort Element (CTE 96.50), under Captain A.D.H. Since 1948, the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet (CINCPACFLT) was Admiral Arthur W. Radford. Three of the LSTs shown are LST-611, LST-745, and LST-715, Sept. 15, 1950. Merchant Marine Academy, and renamed Ensign Whitehead. An amphibious landing at Pohang was necessary because the port of Pusan was completely clogged with shipping supporting the U.S. 24th and 25th Infantry Divisions. authority.

Korean War Chronology History of U.S. Nevertheless, the ship remained operational and continued to bombard targets. Like the United States, British carrier presence in the Far East had been reduced to one by the outbreak of the Korean War. Also on 12 July, the first increment of the 1st Provisional Marine Brigade (Reinforced) sailed from San Diego en route Korea in Task Group 53.7 exactly ten days after receiving its first warning order. Advanced wind and physics model provides for realistic portrayal of ship’s performance in the age of sail. The naval action I was aware of involved extensive American and British Commonwealth carrier operations and naval gunnery support against shore targets. Tim Benbow explores Britain's unsung role in the conflict and explains how the country's partnership with the USA The fighting was so fierce, desperate, and at such close quarters that the division commander, Major General William F. Dean, personally knocked out a North Korean tank with a hand grenade. Charles R. Strathman, USMC (NH 96973). While thus protecting the other aircraft in his group during the attack on the bridge, Commander Vogel’s plane was struck by intense anti-aircraft fire and was shot down. U.S. Navy carrier aircraft and Air Force aircraft from Japan initially inflicted very heavy casualties on North Korean troops (and tanks), but without appreciably slowing their advance. The audacious landing, at considerable distance from Pusan and in extreme tidal conditions, was opposed by some senior Navy leaders. His inspiring leadership, outstanding professional skill and steadfast devotion to duty throughout reflect the highest credit on Captain Luosey and the United States Naval Service. Although air strikes continued to mow down large numbers of North Korean troops, tanks, and supply trucks, the 24th Infantry Division had no answer for the T-34 tanks or the North Korean’s highly effective fix-and-flank tactics (often resulting in a classic double envelopment—see Hannibal at the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC). Philippine Sea’s first combat flights would mark the beginning of three consecutive years of U.S. carrier operations off Korea, as at least one carrier remained on station while the other went to Japan for refueling and re-arming. During the next year and a half, Luosey would earn the Navy Distinguished Service Medal and two Legion of Merits for his extraordinary efforts. In the rampant confusion of the time, this led to rumors that a Russian cruiser had been sighted off the east coast of Korea. On 17 July, Admiral Sohn arrived with the three newly acquired submarine chasers (PC-702, -703, and -704) and ROKN capability was significantly increased. Due to the effective naval gunfire and star-shell illumination from the cruiser, this was the only section of the battle line around Pusan that remained stable, for a time. Korean War Order of Battle: United States, United Nations, and Communist Ground, Naval, and Air Forces, 1950-1953 Gordon L. Rottman Greenwood Publishing Group , 2002 - History - 229 pages On 14 July, 6,000 U.S. Marines of the 1st Provisional Marine Brigade’s main body sailed from San Diego en route to Korea. Navy Distinguished Service Medal citation for Captain Luosey: The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Distinguished Service Medal to Captain (then Commander) Michael Joseph Luosey, United States Navy, for exceptionally meritorious and distinguished service in a position of great responsibility to the Government of the United States as Commander Fleet Activities Pusan from 3 November 1950 to 31 December 1950; and as Commander of all Republic of Korea Naval Forces assigned to the United Nations Blockading and Escort Force (Commander Task Group NINETY-FIVE POINT SEVEN), from 3 November 1950 to June 1952, during operations against enemy aggressor forces in Korea. Initially, North Korean troops moved down South Korean roads in daylight in tightly packed formations, advancing very quickly. On June 28, the Triumph, the cruiser HMS Jamaica, and two destroyers joined the Australian frigate HMAS Shoalhaven and an oiler at Kure. Meanwhile, CINCPACFLT established Task Force Yoke, commanded by Rear Admiral Walter Boone, to scrounge up every operational ship on the U.S. West Coast to prepare for immediate deployment to the Far East. It's the Trafalgar mode in Naval Action! On 2 June 1950, Juneau, Jamaica, and Black Swan were operating off the east coast of South Korea, not far south of the 38th Parallel, preparing to bombard NKPA ground forces moving south. Helena (CA-75) and destroyers Collett and Mansfield had shelled North Korean targets along the east coast road from 27 to 30 July, the first time 8-inch guns had been used on North Korean targets, and then returned to shell some more on 3 August. Early on 3 August, Sicily launched eight VMF-214 “Black Sheep” F4U-4B Corsairs for an attack with rockets and incendiary bombs against North Korean troops at Chinju, near the southern coast of South Korea west of Pusan. Although NKPA troops eventually forced their way into Pohang, they were unable to hold it due to heavy losses inflicted by naval gunfire support and airstrikes by Navy and Air Force aircraft. The trick was to stop the invasion without getting into an all-out war with the Soviets. Up until that time United Nations (UN) warships had operated on the river with only limited Chinese resistance. This would mark the first combat employment of the Panther and Skyraider. Such attacks would actually be very rare, as TF 77 aircraft surprised the North Korean Air Force right in their home bases the next day. Adm. Arthur W. Radford, commander in chief of the Pacific Fleet, was ordered to form a new task force in the Western Pacific (TF 77). To this point, the blockade had only covered ROK ports captured by the North Koreans. On 24 August, heavy cruiser Helena and four destroyers destroyed numerous rail cars and warehouses at Tanchon, North Korea, with the novel aid of helicopter spotting. Originally scheduled to deploy to the Far East in October 1950, her departure was accelerated to 5 July and her two fighter squadrons, VF-111 and VF-112, completed their transition training from prop to F9F Panther jets in Hawaiian waters before the ship sailed from Pearl Harbor on 27 July. TG 96.8 was designated the West Korea Support Group, commanded by Rear Admiral Andrewes, RN, and comprised of Commonwealth and international ships blockading and bombarding the west coast of Korea. 22 was dead in the water, PT No. On the night of 4–5 August, a UDT from the fast transport Diachenko (APD-123) attempted to blow up railroad bridges north of Yosu, on the south coast of South Korea (which would be the Marine brigade’s initial sector), to disrupt North Korean supply efforts, as the North Koreans were becoming increasingly short of gasoline in particular. The Chief of Naval Operations was Admiral Forrest P. Sherman, at the time the youngest person to serve as CNO (until Admiral Elmo Zumwalt in 1970). At the time, the Soviet Union was boycotting the Security Council and therefore was not present to veto the resolution, a mistake they would never make again. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of … Cold weather accounted for 16% of Army non-battle injuries and over 5,000 U.S. casualties of cold injury required evacuation from … Submarine Pickerel (SS-524) had previously obtained periscope photography of the target in support of this mission. On the other hand, the South Koreans blew the bridge over the Han River while 4,000 South Korean refugees were still on it, killing many hundreds and trapping tens of thousands more on the north bank. He stayed aboard with the skeleton crew to help with damage control when the ship suffered a massive and fatal explosion of her own ordnance stores. At 0400 on Sunday morning 25 June 1950, an armored brigade and six divisions of 89,000 soldiers of She picked up her own air group (CVG-2, consisting of 110 F4U Corsair fighter-bombers and no jets) and then sailed for Korea, arriving in September. Following refueling on 18 August from oilers Passumpsic (AO-107) and Cacapon (AO-52), and re-arming from Mount Katmai (AE-16, the first ammunition ship to arrive in Korean waters), TF 77 transited to the Yellow Sea. Nevertheless, about 750 U.S. citizens and friendly foreign nationals got out by air on 27 June, and another 850 on 28 June. At the start of the Korean War, Badoeng Strait (CVE-116), which was commissioned too late to see combat service in World War II, was on a midshipmen cruise from San Diego to Pearl Harbor. On the Yellow Sea side, two Il-10 ground attack aircraft caught British destroyer HMS Comus by surprise, causing some damage and killing a British sailor. Led by the executive officer of Juneau, Commander William B. Porter, the party included a lieutenant, four enlisted Marines, and four gunner’s mates. In the face of a heavy concentration of anti-aircraft defenses, he pressed home his attack and obtained the first bomb hit on the bridge. Denfield had been fired by Mathews in retribution for the “Revolt of the Admirals,” in which senior Navy leaders fought hard against the draconian budget cuts (which, if fully carried out, would have put every U.S. aircraft carrier into mothballs), as well as fighting against the U.S. Air Force nuclear bomber strategy (and losing badly in the court of U.S. public opinion). Commander Porter and his party thus became the first U.S. military personnel to “invade” North Korea. As the UN force closed to engage, the North Korean PT-boats turned to attack and charged. On 14 July 1950, despite being only one of three operational Essex-class carriers in the Pacific, Boxer (CV-21), was pressed into service as an aircraft ferry. Marine F4U Corsair squadron VMF-323 would operate from Badoeng Strait and VMF-214 from Sicily (CVE-118) in providing close air support to U.S. Marines once they went ashore at Pusan. Both Luosey was a 1933 graduate of the U.S. Juneau subsequently bombarded bridges and railroads, significantly impeding the North Korean advance down the east coast of South Korea (actions that would earn Rear Admiral Higgins a Navy Distinguished Service Medal). The light cruiser Juneau, commanded by Captain Jesse Clyborn Sowell, had arrived in Japan on 1 June 1950, and was the flagship for Commander, Cruiser Division FIVE (CRUDIV 5), Rear Admiral John M. Higgins. Naval Aviation in the Korean War II Posted on March 23, 2018 by MSW In two days of very hard fighting, Marines on the ground teamed with Marines in the air to drive the North Korean forces from Obong-ni ridge and across the Nakton River thereby eliminating the dangerous salient. Junks laid minefields at night, and several warships were damaged. On 20 August, destroyer Lyman K. Swenson dashed north in the Sea of Japan and put 102 5-inch rounds into the iron works, harbor installations, railroad yards, and radio station in the North Korean port of Chongjin, on the northeast coast of North Korea and not that far from the Soviet Union. The refinery was totally destroyed and thousands of tons of refined oil burned for days in a column of smoke that could be seen for over 60 miles.

The Korean People’s Navy or Chosŏn-inmingun Haegun 조선인민군 해군 (abbreviated in ‘KPN’) is the North Korean Navy. Softened by years of garrison duty in Japan, the 24th Infantry Division was under-manned, under-equipped, and under-trained. On 6 July, PBM-5 Mariner flying boats of VP-46 arrived from San Diego at Buckner Bay, Okinawa, tended by Suisun (AVP-53). Joy had been a key war planner and then commander of a cruiser division in 1944–45 against Japan. Note battered paint on this aircraft (80-G-419929). Escort carrier Badoeng Strait (CVE-116) transported the brigade’s aircraft. On 27 July, she collided with dock landing ship Gunston Hall, fortunately with only minor damage. Most of the embarked NKPA troops drowned, although many were captured. The most famous interdiction operation of the war occurred during March and April 1951 against two bridges in the Kilchu-Songjin area. With less wear and tear than the combat carriers of the war, she was not placed into reserve as many of the other ships were. The United States was not interested in getting into a nuclear war with the Soviets, especially over South Korea. Naval engineer gets assigned to a gunboat on a rescue mission in war-torn China. As two VF-51 Panthers were conducting a second strafing pass on Pongyang airfield (North Korean anti-aircraft fire was pretty ineffective at that stage), a North Korean Yak-9 fighter (somewhat like a P-51 Mustang) rolled out of a hanger and got airborne, followed closely by a second. Although the Marines also suffered close air support teething problems, they overcame them more quickly than the other services. North Korean propaganda claimed that their heroic PT-boats sank the heavy cruiser Baltimore (CA-68). Back in the United States, on 20 July, the U.S. Navy activated 14 squadrons of Organized Reserve for deployment to Korea, including eight carrier fighter squadrons, two carrier attack squadrons, one ASW squadron, one fleet aircraft service squadron, and two patrol squadrons.
