Sgt. Francis Connors dramatically planted the American flag on the top of snow-covered Sandbag Castle on the eastern Korean front. The Chinese Communists tried to cut it down with a barrage of gunfire, but Connors lashed the flag firmly to the tree. As he turned to crawl back to the safety of his own lines, an Army photographer got this picture.
