Veterans and active-duty service members at Osan Air Base in South Korea marked the anniversary Thursday of the last known American bayonet charge, which occurred in the Korean War at the Battle of Hill 180. "The significance of the event is to remember the last bayonet charge of this hill 62 years ago when then-Capt. Millett led a courageous bunch of kids up this hill to push back the enemy forces of the North Koreans and Chinese," said Shawn Watson, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post senior vice commander.
