Changsadong Raid, 15-19 September 1950
Motor whaleboat alongside USS Helena (CA-75) on 19 September 1950, during efforts to save the broached Korean LST Munsan, visible in the center distance. A second Korean LST is at right, with USS Bolster (ARS-38) attempting to pull the stranded ship free. USS Doyle (DMS-34) is partially visible in the upper left.
This situation resulted from an attempt to insert South Korean guerillas behind enemy lines north of Pohang.
