Medic, Harold Selley
Harold Selley was in the Medical Company of the 7th Cavalry Regiment from the time time he arrived in Korea, July 1950. He would remain there for 11 months as a medic in a Forward Collecting Station.
Selley related in an interview,” Several times my collecting station was surrounded by the enemy and we were unable to get our wounded to the rear. Most of the time, we medics provided our own perimeter security for the station. That meant we took turns in staying in foxholes guarding our station. Usually we were far enough to the rear of the actual small arms fire that we could operate the station without the enemy invading the area. Since we received wounded from the entire regiment, we saw practically everyone who was wounded in the entire regiment.”
