LST Taking Marines to Inchon Korea

Looking Forward from the superstructure of our LST {land ship tank}. This LST was a ship that had been sold or given or whatever to the Japanese. I have no idea what the number or name was. The crew was all Japanese. We had no contact with them, we ate our C-rations they had their fish heads & rice. This ship was about 250ft long. The bow opened up and a ramp is dropped for loading and unloading. There is a ramp in side so vehicles can be driven to the top deck.

August 1950
