History:

(Battle Action#29/6) - On June 25, 1950, Kim Kee and fellow local farmers took up farming equipment like rakes and hoes to defend themselves and their homes against oncoming Communist North Korean military marching for Seoul. The North Koreans easily overwhelmed them. Afterward, the injured Kim Kee led the surviving farmers to sneak past the Red Army outside Seoul and volunteer for military service with South Korea. But Kim Kee, like many others, were rejected because of physical impairments. Kim Kee rallied them to form "an army of rejected men." This irregular army used guerrilla tactics against the North Korean forces; their first raid was to secure weaponry and supplies from the North Korean army. Subsequent months saw the North Korea dedicate a tank platoon against Kim's troop, but they were instead led over a frozen lake and the tanks sank. Senior South Korean military heard of Kim's successes and summoned him for medal awards and to be recognized as South Korea's first commandos.
