On Sunday my son and I went metal detecting at the Battle of Chochiwon here in South Korea. It is the fourth battle in July 1950 when the North Korea 105th Armored DIV supported by the 4th INF DIV attacked the United States 21st INF REGT, also known as Task Force Smith, at a strategic bottleneck on Route 1. We hit up two ridgelines where the NK 16th and 18th INF REGTs attacked US positions and found a handful of NK officer pistol casings, Soviet-made rifle casings, as well as M1 Garand and M1 Carbine casings.

To top off the hunt, we found the discovery of a lifetime: a 1945 War Nickel in one of the foxholes in the path of the North Korean 4th INF DIV. Below is the video. It is emotionally moving to find an item like this, especially since it was probably dropped by a young soldier from Task Force Smith, 21st INF REGT 3rd BN. You can really feel the tension on that hill.

We do a lot of metal detecting here in Korea at Korean War battlefields and old mountain passes. So if anyone visits or lives here and wants to come find history, you are 10000% welcome to join us!
