The Chosin Few

They came from everywhere: California, Alabama, Wyoming, and Texas, to name a few. Many were just teenagers when they arrived in Korea, though prior to landing, they could not find it on a map. They found themselves freezing and surrounded at the Chosin Reservoir. Today, the men they call the “Chosin Few" are well into their 80s and 90s. In this gallery, we share their portraits and personal stories. The men (and some women) were photographed and interviewed at a reunion of The Chosin Few in San Diego in August 2016.
