"Dusty Season in Korea"
"These Republic of Korea troops move into the line from Wanjin, Korea in a cloud of choking dust that characterizes the discomfort of all troops operating in Korea today."
"This photo was taken by U.S. Navy Combat Camerman on the way to join the Marine Corps in the beleagured hills of Korea in the Chinese Spring Offensive campaign."
Quoted from the original caption released with this photo by Commander, Naval Forces Far East under date of 24 May 1951. The U.S. Army truck carrying the ROK troops also appears to be towing a wooden pole.
