Military members of the Far East District watch a video about the first encounter between U.S. and North Korean forces during the Korean War Friday, April 19, at the Task Force Smith museum, located about 25 miles south of Seoul near the city of Osan. The new museum, which officially opens in late April, is dedicated to Task Force Smith, the unit which felt the brunt of the North Korean advance towards would become the Pusan Perimeter. The Soldiers toured the museum and did a terrain walk over the battlefield, which still is used by the Republic of Korea army for training. There are still depressions in the hill's surface where Task Force Smith's fighting positions once were.
