Screening of the film "Chosin" at the United States Navy Memorial

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 13:00

The Department of Defense 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Commemoration Committee hosted a screening of Chosin, a documentary about the Korean War, and a panel discussion with two local Korean War Veterans. Chosin, a winner of Best Documentary Feature at the 2010 GI Film Festival, was produced by combat decorated Marines Brian Iglesias and Anton Sattler. After 60 years of silence, the survivors of the Chosin Reservoir Campaign of the Korean War take viewers on an emotional and heart-pounding journey through one of the most savage battles in American history. In the winter of 1950, U.S. troops were surrounded and trapped by eight times as many Chinese Soldiers in the frozen mountains of North Korea. Despite overwhelming odds, the men never lose faith in each other. Refusing to surrender, the men fight their way to freedom through 78 miles of unforgiving, mountainous terrain. Participants in the screening include Chosin Reservoir survivors, producers of the documentary, active duty serviceman and others.
