The last time I saw Thomas Riley Kimball, Technical Sergeant. D. S. Marine Corps. \vas on the deck of mi LST off the Korean coast.

In.a neat row, were the bodies of some 20 Marines who Jel! during a bloody raid on Kojo Beach, south of Wonson. The blankets that covered their faces and bodies left their combat boots exposed, and as the ship pitched their feet swayed back and forth Iv seemed as if these young men would toss the blankets aside, .sit up and Yfiwn.
