  • Veteran Pat Finn shares memories from Korea’s Chosin Reservoir

    Pat Finn of Grand Marais and Eden Prairie is one of many veterans who didn’t talk about his military service for many years, despite the fact that he had been a participant in America’s third largest battle— the Chosin Reservoir Campaign in Korea. He recently shared his story with WTIP’s Rhonda Silence. The photo you see is an official Marine photo of Corporal Patrick Finn, who was just 18 years old when he was deployed to Korea.
