On September 27, 1968, two U. S. soldiers were killed when their jeep was ambushed by enemy forces. This kind of incident was fairly common in 1968, except for one thing: rather than taking place in the jungles of Vietnam, the ambush occurred in the rugged mountains of the Republic of Korea (ROK). The incident was part of a low-intensity campaign waged by North Korea against U. S. and ROK forces from 1966 to 1969 as part of Premier Kim Il-Sung's plan to reunify Korea under the communist banner.
