Camp Pendleton to Honor Korean War Anniversary

NBC 7 San Diego

Camp Pendleton will hold a ceremony honoring fallen service members from the Korean War as part of the 65th anniversary of the landing on Inchon Tuesday.

Marines from the 1st Marine Division, 2nd Marine Division and reserve units landed at Inchon in the early morning hours of Sept. 15, 1950.

Led by Marines from the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, they came ashore at “Green Beach” in Wolmi-Do. The Marines captured the island by noon with only 14 casualties.

The ceremony, a wreath-laying, bell remembrance, 21-rifle salute and static display, will be at the Pacific Views Center on the base Tuesday morning.
