…. Got Caught Up in the Russian Civil War.

"It was 45 degrees below zero, and Lieutenant Harry Mead's platoon was much too far from home. Just outside the Russian village of Ust Padenga, 500 miles north of Moscow, the American soldiers crouched inside two blockhouses and trenches cut into permafrost. It was before dawn on January 19, 1919.

Through their field glasses, lookouts gazed south into the darkness. Beyond the platoon's position, flares and rockets flashed, and shadowy figures moved through tiny villagesóBolshevik soldiers from Russia's Red Army, hoping to push the American invaders 200 miles north, all the way back to the frozen White Sea…."

Yes, many in US ARMY know of the 27th & 31st Rgts in Russia after WWI. Russian history calls it a "US Invasion".

I was with 1st Bn/31st Inf Rgt of the US 2ID in '84-'85 in the ROK. So the linage and history of the 31st is carried on. And IIRC there is a Bn of the 27th too still around.

The UK, Japan and some others had troops there as well. To stop the Communists from taking over the country, etc. The rest is history …

For a "Forgotten Story" it has an amazing number of books and web-sites discussing it!
