I was assigned to LSU-742 around late July 1950. I was with a crew that replaced a crew at Pusan. Our mission was to take ammunition from ammo ships and go on the beach and a crew of Korean laborers would carry the ammo to a depot nearby.We did this in an area called Chinhae...pronounced Shin Hay. We did this for about 6 months. Our next duty was at Hungnam, North korea....we transferred men and material to ships in the harbor...we were there from early December to Christmas eve 1950. Here is a list of names of my shipmates: CPO Merrill CPO Wells Carroll..... Horrigan, Paul Kracht, Bill Kelly, Randall Musgrave, Drady Fields, Boyce Tucker, Cecil
