Korean War memoirs of Keith R. Kingsley, who appears to have been with the 7th Infantry Division. He was assigned to the 7th Reconnaissance Troop, 1st Platoon, and refers to this as the ''7th Division Recon.'' He records, with some preliminary material, his arrival at Pusan in September 1950, movement to the front, marching to and being stationed at the small town of Cheechon, and action and life in the field. He was wounded in action at Wonju in mid-February 1951 and recounts being taken to the field hospital for surgery and his experiences with doctors. Later he is removed to Johnson Air Force Base Hospital in Japan for recovery. He returns to the field in the spring (Chunchon) and assigned to his old platoon, commanding the Scouting section as Staff Sergeant.

There are multiple references to the 7th Infantry Division's 31st, 32nd and 17th Regiments, as well as to the 17th Regiment Tank Company.

Keith Robert Kingsley (1924-2015) was born in Fredrick, Wisconsin. He was also a veteran of World War II. In the 1940s and 50s he lived in St. Paul, Minnesota, and lived out his later years in Portland and Milwaukie, Oregon.
