Korean War  1950-1953

  

The years 1951-1953 found the Regiment in almost constant combat along the 38th Parallel, occupying defensive positions like Heartbreak Ridge, Punchbowl and Pork Chop Hill, and conducting aggressive combat patrols.

The 14th Infantry's service in Korea earned the Regiment five campaign streamers and a Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation for gallantry at Munsan-Ni.

Three Golden Dragons were awarded the Medal of Honor:  PFC Bryant E. Womack, Medical Co, SGT Donn F. Porter Co G (both posthumously) and PFC. Earnest E. West, Co. L
