Task Force Crombez

The Line

University Press of Kentucky

As the fight persisted on the southern part of the perimeter of the 23d Infantry, the 5th Cavalry's fight initiated so that the road to Chip'yong-ni would be opened. In the first part of the chapter, the actions were described by the following involved officers: Maj. Robert A. Humphrey, Major Gibson, Lt. Col. Morgan B. Heasley, Capt. Joe W. Finley, and Major Humphrey. Because of the relatively slow progress exhibited by the infantry advance, Colonel Crombez felt the need to formulate a quicker method for arriving at Chip'yong-ni. Task Force Crombez was being planned and organized, and trucks and ambulances were also sent with the 5th Cavalry Regiment so that the 23d Infantry RCT would be relieved. Also, Major Parziale articulated more on the decision making attributed to the said task force.
