In 1950, DePuy had a skiing accident that resulted in his absence from army work during the start of the Korean War. When his recovered, in spite of not having the necessary experience, he was assigned to be in charge of paramilitary operations in China, specifically the “formulation of plans and high level operational policies and duties as director of operations.” Colonel Richard Stilwell, during this period, was put in charge of the Far East's Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), operations. Since Stilwell was well aware of who would be able to help him in his tasks, he recruited from his 90th Infantry Division comrades such as Gilbert Strickler, John Mason, Lon Redman, and Bill DePuy.
