Note: This is also known as the Chosin Reservoir, where LTC Donald C. Faith was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor with the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment.
The display reads:
D Battery, 15th AAA (AW) Battalion, Changjin Reservoir, Nov – Dec 1950
By late Fall 1950, UN forces had retaken nearly the entire Korean Peninsula, pushing the North Korean Army northwards, almost to the Yalu River separating the peninsula from China.
Diplomatic relations with China had been severed in 1949 after the Chinese takeover, and therefore Chinese warnings to the US through third party channels went mostly unheeded.
The first Chinese attack on US forces occurred on 1 November when the 1st Cavalry Division’s 8th Cavalry Regiment was largely overwhelmed by massed Chinese infantry assaults. Intense combat resulted in nearly 800 US and an untold amount of Chinese losses. However, by 6 November, the line was quiet again and the Chinese attack was written off as an anomaly.
To the 1st Cavalry’s right, the US X Corps (1st Marine Division and US 7th Infantry Division) pressed its advance northwards later in the month with the Yalu River as its ultimate objective. However, on the night of the 27th, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army struck X Corps on both sides of the Changjin Reservoir, cutting off the two US Divisions and forcing a fighting withdrawal that has become one of the epic battles in US military history.
D Battery, 15th AAA Battalion, under Captain James McClymont was a key part of the 31st Regimental Combat Team, the 7th Infantry Division’s lead element. Tasked with providing air defense support for the 57th Artillery, D / 15 AAA brought heavy firepower that could be used in the direct-fire role as well. Aware of the 8th Cavalry’s fight earlier in the month and expecting enemy contact, Captain McClymont ordered his crews to draw double their standard ammunition load prior to moving out with the 31st RCT.
From 27 November through 2 December 1950, D Battery’s M16 Halftracks and M19 Gun Motor Carriages repulsed numerous attacks on friendly positions with .50 caliber and 40mm fire. The Battery was instrumental in affecting the withdrawal of the remnants of the 31st RCT back to friendly lines. For their valorous actions during the Battle of the Changjin Reservoir, D Battery personnel were awarded two posthumous Distinguished Service Crosses and more than a dozen Silver Stars, making D Battery the most highly decorated AAA unit of the Korean War.

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Captain (Coast Artillery Corps) James R. McClymont (ASN: 0-1059196), United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action against the enemy while Serving as Commanding Officer, Battery A, 15th Anti-Aircraft Artillery (Automatic Weapons) Battalion (Self Propelled), 7th Infantry Division, in action near the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea, on 28 November 1950. On this date, the Battery Captain McClymont commanded was providing close support fires for infantry and field artillery units in positions east of the reservoir. From his location at the Battery Command Post, Captain McClymont learned that the Command Post of his first platoon was under exceedingly heavy enemy fire and was in grave danger. Captain McClymont called for volunteers to form a patrol to go to the rescue of the platoon headquarters and then led the patrol to the vicinity of the action. He saw that his patrol was far outnumbered by the enemy attacking force, which was firing automatic weapons, small arms, and mortars and was throwing hand grenades. With complete disregard for his personal safety, Captain McClymont exposed himself to almost certain injury or death by leading his patrol of one officer and six enlisted men quickly into close combat with the enemy. Under his cool and aggressive leadership, the patrol killed or dispersed all of the enemy in the vicinity. Captain McClymont himself killed a number of the enemy. As a result of Captain McClymont’s personal daring and resourceful leadership, the patrol rescued one officer and six enlisted men who were still alive, and recovered the bodies of one officer and four enlisted men who had been killed. Captain McClymont’s display of gallantry on this occasion was in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Sergeant First Class Robert M. Slater (ASN: RA-34929995), United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action against the enemy while serving with Battery D, 15th Anti-Aircraft Artillery (Anti-Aircraft) Battalion (Self Propelled), 7th Infantry Division, in action at the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea, on 28 November 1950. On this date the gun section of which Sergeant Slater was the leader was in close support of two field artillery units at a point on a defense perimeter. Sergeant Slater emplaced his two self-propelled weapons so as best to cover the routes of approach being used by the enemy to attack the perimeter at that point. Between the hours of 0030 to 0730 on this date the enemy attempted to pierce the perimeter by repeated rushes with small arms, hand grenades and Bangalore torpedoes, in an effort to knock our Sergeant Slater’s weapons. Although he could have exercised command of his section from the comparative safety of a foxhole or inside one of the armored vehicles, Sergeant Slater, with undaunted courage, voluntarily exposed himself to intense enemy fire by going constantly back and forth between the weapons, directing the fire, passing ammunition, encouraging the gun crews, assigning and instructing replacements for casualties, until he himself was wounded in the face by shell fragments, although this did not stop him. As a result of his high devotion to duty and his extreme personal bravery, his section killed at least one hundred enemy and the integrity of the defense in that vicinity was maintained. Sergeant Slater’s heroism, without regard for his own life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Sergeant Grantford R. Brown (ASN: RA-16249353), United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action against the enemy while serving with the Battery D, 15th Anti-Aircraft Artillery (Automatic Weapons) Battalion (Self Propelled), 7th Infantry Division, in action near the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea, on 29 November 1950. On this date, the M-19 gun carriage which Sergeant Brown commanded was defending a sector of the defense perimeter established to protect elements of the 37th Field Artillery Battalion. Between the hours of 0030 and 0730 the enemy made repeated attacks against Sergeant Brown’s position. In spite of very heavy enemy mortar, automatic weapons, and small-arms fire, Sergeant Brown exposed himself without regard for his own personal safety in order to direct the fire of his weapons more accurately. By courageously moving on the ground to various positions of vantage he was able to direct the fire to enemy targets which were most dangerous. After being hit in the leg by a mortar shell fragment, Sergeant Brown valiantly stayed at his post until the attacks by the enemy ceased. His outstanding and devoted leadership caused the enemy to be killed in large numbers and forced them to abandon the attack. Sergeant Brown’s display of gallantry on this occasion was in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Dehydration is one of the most…

Dehydration is one of the most encountered problems during Fasting. In addition to water, eat plenty of these hydrating foods (the percent number indicates their water content).
Tips to include these foods in your Ramadan diet:
💦Eat salads rich in cucumbers, celery, spinach and tomato🍅.
💦Other than salads keep nibbling on plenty of cucumbers and celery (research showed that celery hydrates your body twice as effectively as a glass of water).
💦Add spinach to your smoothies🍹
💦Enjoy fruit salads containing strawberries🍓, watermelon🍉 and cantaloupe🍈 as desserts- A 2009 study has shown that watermelon🍉, rich in rehydration salts calcium, magnesium and potassium and sodium, can hydrate💦💦 even better than water.
💦Eat grapefruit, it is a great snack for weight loss.
💦Yogurt: has high amounts of potassium and sodium and helps in balancing out the body’s electrolytes. Look for probiotics rich yogurt.
إن الجفاف من أكثر المشاكل التي نواجهها أثناء الصيام. بالإضافة إلى شرب الماء، تناول الكثير من هذه المأكولات التي تروي الجسم (الأرقام في الصورة تشير إلى محتوى هذه المأكولات بالماء).
بعض النصائح لتناول هذه المأكولات:
💦تناول سلطات تحتوي على الخيار، الكرفس، السبانخ والطماطم🍅.
💦تناول الخيار والكرفس المقطع كوجبة خفيفة (أظهرت الدراسات أن الكرفس يروي الجسم أكثر بمرتين من كوب من الماء)
💦أضف السبانخ إلى السموزي 🍹(شيك الفواكه)
💦تناول سلطة الفاكهة التي تحتوي على الفراولة🍓، الحبحب🍉، والشمام🍈 بدلاً عن الحلويات -أظهرت دراسة نشرت عام 2009 أن الحبحب🍉 (البطيخ) يحتوي على معادن تساعد على تروية الجسم أكثر من الماء (الكلس، الكغنيزيوم، البوتاسيوم والصوديوم)
💦تناول الغريبفروت كوجبة خفيفة فهو ممتاز للذين يحاولون التحكم بالوزن
💦الزبادي: يحتوي على البوتاسيوم والصوديوم الأساسيين في تروية الجسم. اختر الأنواع التي تحتوي على البكتيريا المفيدة للصحة (البروبايوتيك).
