Stanley Nikulski - Korean War

Stanley J. Nikulski served as an infantryman with the 35th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division during the brutal defense of the Pusan Perimeter in the fall of 1950, where he sustained a leg injury. Nikulski rejoined his unit in late November north of Pyongyang, just in time for the massive Chinese offensive which pushed the 25th Division back all the way south of Seoul.
