Marines Chozen Frozen
(Thank You Vic)
Ignoring a Korean snow storm, two ground crew members of the 3rd Bomb Wing
work on an engine of a U.S. Air Force B-26 Night Intruder.
These light bombers, carrying out "Operation Strangle,"
hit Communist troop supply lines every night in all kinds of weather.
Armed with tons of bombs and ammunition, attacking visually or by radar,
the twin engined B-26s have taken a heavy toll of enemy rolling stock
since the 3rd Bomb Wing entered the war in June 1950.: ca. 01/1952
