October 21st, 1950 Korea - Spearheading the UN Forces' drive north, the 187th Airborne RCT conducted a combat jump north of Pyongyang in an attempt to cut off North Korean forces retreating from the capital. Although the airborne drop itself was a success, the operation came too late to intercept any significant KPA elements and the US landings initially met little resistance. In the following days, they would work with British and Australian forces to destroy the North Korean 239th Regiment.
