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
October 25, 1950
Having destroyed the bulk of the North Korean army, UN troops have pressed on into North Korea and are now approaching the Yalu River. Chinese People’s Volunteers Force (CPVF) troops under veteran commander Gen. Peng Dehuai cross into North Korea and inflict serious losses on the lead units of the UN advance. The sudden appearance of Chinese forces sends the main body of UN forces reeling back to the south bank of the Ch’ŏngch’ŏn River.
