Korean War/UN Offensive (1950)/Inchon Landing/Operation Chromite

September / 1950

Description
(September 15–26, 1950) in the Korean War, an amphibious landing by U.S. and South Korean forces at the port of Inchon, near the South Korean capital, Seoul. A daring operation planned and executed under extremely difficult conditions by U.S. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the landing suddenly reversed the tide of the war, forcing the invading North Korean army to retreat in disorder up the Korean peninsula.

Personal Memories

Memories
With the outbreak of the Korean War, she was pressed into service to carry planes to the fighting. From 14‚??22 July 1950, she made a record crossing of the Pacific, 8¬Ĺ days, with 150 Air Force and Navy planes and a thousand troops. On her return trip (27 July‚??4 August), she cut the record to 7 days, 10 hours, and 36 minutes. After fast repairs she departed for the Far East on 24 August, this time to join TF 77 in giving air support to the troops. Her planes supported the landing at Incheon (15 September 1950) and other ground action until November, when she departed for the west coast and overhaul.
