Near Sojong, South Korea on this day in 1950, Private Kenneth Shadrick,
a 19-year-old infantryman from Skin Fork,
West Virginia, becomes the
first American
reported killed in the Korean War. Shadrick, a member of
a bazooka squad, had just fired the weapon at a Soviet-made tank when
he looked up to check his aim and was cut down by enemy machine-gun
fire.
