A Very Long Weekend: The National Guard in Korea, 1950-1953 by William Berebitsky
Korea 1950. Days after an ill-prepared, under-strength, United States Army went into combat, the call went out for the nation's premier reserve force, the Army National Guard. This is their story. The story of combat veterans and underage boys who comprised the forty-three Guard units that served in Korea. Given little or no unit training, the first Guard units arrived at Pusan in January 1951, still wearing their summer uniforms.
