8th Ranger Infantry Company (Airborne), 23–25 April 1951
This chapter explains the difficult combat operations of the 8th Ranger Infantry Company (Airborne) in the 24th Infantry Division's sector. The 8th Ranger Infantry Company had trained in the U.S., but had only been in Korea one month before the Chinese hit the 24th Division's army and the airborne defense was called in. While relocating, the 8th Ranger Infantry Company stumbled upon enemy forces and were engaged in combat. As leaders of the 8th Company became wounded, the group broke apart and began to withdraw. Lt. Giacherine assumed control and led an organized retreat.
