This sounds rather ridiculous. The ROK Marines were pretty good troops, but
the ROK soldiers (or the ones that were assigned to us) really weren't all that
great. I can't believe that any combat officer would go along with arming
untrained, reluctant civilians as a means to augment his forces. Sounds like one
of those "drying a poodle in the microwave" tales to me.

Subject: South Koreans in the 7th
In recent posting
regarding the Incheon landing,
I read one interesting story regarding the
South Korean men/youth picked off the street and pressed into
7th Div for the Incheon landing.
Does anyone remember these
newly-minted S.Korean soldiers?
Where were they trained? How many days?
How long did they serve in the 7th Div.?
What happened to them later?
