During the battle of White Horse Mountain, Iron Triangle Battlefield, the attack of the 1st company of 30th regiment was stopped by strong residence of communist Chinese army.
At that time Cpl Oh Gyu-bong carried anti-radiation guidance missile on his back and rushed to the enemy’s automatic firearms position to blow it up and platoon commander, second lieutenant Kang Seung-woo, and private first class Ahn Young-kwon gave him cover fire.
Second lieutenant Kang Seung-woo decided to attack on the pillbox with TNT and a mortar. Even as he crawled forward to the machine-gun nest by 7m and threw a bomb he got a shot on his right arm and dropped the bomb. However, private first class Ahn Young-kwon picked up the bomb quickly and threw it and Cpl Oh Gyu-bong also threw a hand grenade at the enemy’s machine-gun nest and destroyed it. This would be the start of recapturing the target by a company resuming the attack.

Second lieutenant Kang Seung-woo and private first class Ahn Young-kwon were enshrined with tablets in the Daejeon National Cemetery.
