Hard memories from Korea’s Old Baldy

-A A +A

‘If you like rats and all of that, I guess it’s all right’

By Hannah Strong

At age 21, Heath Springs native Quay Powers says he was “scared to death” fighting his way up Old Baldy Hill during the Korean War.
Powers was drafted into the Army in Oct. 1951 and served in the 2nd Infantry Division, Company F.
Their first task was to relieve another company from Old Baldy so that company could go back to the reserve.
“Old Baldy was a special hill because of the vision you had out front, and that’s why it was important,” Powers said. “It gave you a good viewpoint if the enemy did attack.”
