SALUTING OUR MILITARY:  1LT Ralph Puckett

On this date: Nov. 25, 1950 — Ranger 1LT Ralph Puckett and his men captured Hill 205, a strategic point overlooking the Chong Chon River, Korea. Initially, they had to brace for attack from all sides of the hill, the 51 Rangers were over a mile away from the nearest friendly unit and vulnerable to being completely surrounded.

Fortunately for the Rangers, they had artillery support for some of the night. Earlier in the evening, LT Puckett had coordinated a series of increasingly more dangerous fire missions with the artillery, in order to allow the Rangers artillery support to rapidly adjust to enemy attacks.

At 10 p.m., the Chinese began their attack by firing a mortar bombardment against LT Puckett and his Rangers. Six waves of Chinese forces assaulted the hill for the next four and a half hours. Several times, LT Puckett was forced to call in artillery fire, “Danger Close,” placing the Rangers within the danger radius of the friendly artillery fire. During the course of the battle, LT Puckett was wounded several times, once by grenade fragments and then twice more when two mortars landed in his fox hole. After his wounds rendered him barley conscious, and ordering the withdrawal of his forces, he told his men to leave him behind, however two of Puckett’s Rangers, Pfc. David L. Pollack and Pfc. Billy G. Walls dragged him down the Hill, as they received small arms fire. LT Puckett was medically evacuated from the Hill and he was hospitalized for a year for the wounds suffered that night.

For his actions on Hill 205, 1LT Puckett would be awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, his first of two DSCs he would receive for Valor.

Rangers Lead the Way!
