(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.
