Charles Kenneth Warner
Kenneth Warner and his brother Leslie Warner enlisted in the Marine Corps right out of high school. They arrived in Korea in November 1950 where he served as a radio operator for the 1st Battalion/ 1st Regiment. He was a driver for Lewis “Chesty” Puller, and he was justifiably proud to be one of Chosin Few survivors.
Korean War - Key Events
September 12, 1950
North Korean troops reach their farthest point of advance. Although thousands of UN troops have arrived to reinforce South Korea, months of fighting have reduced the area under their control to a 5,000-square-mile rectangle centered on the critical southeastern port of Pusan. By the time the North Korean invasion force reaches the “Pusan Perimeter,” its strength has been nearly cut in half and it is almost entirely lacking in armor.
