                                 1st Marine Division


Following the end of World War II and the postwar draw down of forces, by 1950 the division only possessed the strength of a reinforced regimental combat team.   The division would be assembled on the battle field and would participate in the amphibious assault at Inchon under the orders of General MacArthur.   "The Old Breed" was the unit chosen to lead the Inchon landing on 15 September 1950. At Inchon, the division faced one of its most daunting challenges, deploying so hurriedly it still lacked its third infantry regiment and ordered to execute an amphibious assault in a city the size of Omaha, Nebraska under the worst tidal conditions they had ever faced. After the landing they moved north and after heavy fighting in Seoul they liberated the city.

After the liberation of Seoul, the division was put back on ships and taken to the eastern side of the Korean peninsula and put ashore at Wonsan



Hospital Corpsman Stacy was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart, the Combat Action Ribbon, the Presidential Unit Citation w/star, the National Defense Service Medal, the Korean Service Medal w/star, the ROK Presidential Unit Citation, the United Nations Korean Medal, and the ROK War Service Medal.


Hospital Corpsman Stacy was a member of H Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines, 1st Marine Division. He was on a mechanized patrol in the Kumdong Valley near Majon-ni North Korea when it was ambushed and he was seriously wounded tending wounded and died of those wounds on November 2, 1950. Gil Heyblom remembers him being in Japan and playing a piano in early September. Gil said Stacy was a terrific piano player and had blond hair.
