Comments: Locating 7 out of 10 men who survived the ambushed on March 15, 1969. It was a
10-man patrol who escaped because of my ability in artillery. I was the forward
observer who fired smoke round so that they could escape from the N. Korean fire
power while us on Outpost Beryl were under fire too. I did not get any recognition or
medal of any sort. However, I needed a witness that I was there at the firefight which
lasted for over 4 hours. Note: there was an Helicopter down with 7 people got killed in
that incidents.

Hi?

My name is D.I.Choi in Inje County -Local government Office. I am the one in charge of International cooperation.
First of all , I personally thank your fighting for the freedom of Inje County, South Korea, My project is to find the soliders who are deeply related in LivingStone Bridge in Inje so I will let the people in Inje know the exact story about Livingstone Bridge. The story that i know go as follow. If you don't know the Bridge ,Please ask your combat soliders or someone who might know. My email address is doncd@naver.com or call 82-11-7309-7319
thank you very much.


Livingstone Bridge- Heros were died but they are remembered forever.




Inje County, Gangwon Province, Republic of Korea is looking for Mr. Livingstone's family and his combat soldiers who fought for the freedom and died at an away from home. Inje County is planning to celebrate the 48 the anniversary of Livingstone and commemorate the heros in Korean War so that the monument is erected and the people living here try to hand their name down to future generations.




It has been almost 50 years since the Bridge was constructed.

This is the Bridge linking Deoksan-ri to Hapkang-ri in Inje County,Gangwon-Province, Republic of Korea.




In Korean War, 1951, during U.S-Korea joint military operation, A battalion commander, Livingstone(not known his full name) retreated strategically. But river's flood resulted from a sudden shower made it impossible to cross the river so

that the artillery battalion had a lot of damages by falling into North Korean and chinese ambush. Many soldiers were died and a lot of military equipments and supplies were lost. The Lieutenant Colonel, Livingstone(Not sure) was severely wounded.




Later He was died at a field hospital. Before he died he lamented bitterly " If there had been a Bridge, our forces not only would not have damaged but also could have winned that battle". He left the Will that was an earnest request saying "If I die , have my wife build a Bridge with private funds at Inje County, the battle field".




After the cease fire agreement, U.S and Korean Army built the Bridge, length 150m, width 3.6m, on Feb. 4,1957. They named the bridge "Livingstone Bridge".

The people living here at Inje County used that bridge very well and always appreciated for him and his combat soldiers who fought for Korea.




In 1970, Inje County rebuilt the bridge with iron concrete and put the name Living Stone Bridge thanks to his self-sacrificing sprite. Inje County erected a monument in memory of the late Mr. Livingstone and his combat soldiers by the side of the bridge
