Dedicated to the memory of the 375 infantrymen from the 1st Battalion 21st Infantry, the 134 artillerymen from the 52nd Field Artillery Battalion, and the 31 medical personnel from the medical company of the 21st Infantry Regiment who comprised Task Force Smith, the first United States Army contingent to engage North Korean invasion forces in combat in the vicinity of Osan, Korea, on July 5, 1950. The efforts and selfless sacrifices of these soldiers are an example for all future generations and put meaning behind the phrase,
