Changsadong Raid, 15-19 September 1950
Republic of Korea LST Munsan, broached on the beach after an attempt to insert South Korean guerillas behind enemy lines north of Pohang in mid-September 1950. A second ROK LST is in the background.
Numbers visible inside Munsan's bow opening indicate that she may be the former USS LST-120, which was transferred to the Department of State in 1947.
