USS LST-762 - LATER USS FLOYD COUNTY (LST-762) 1951-52 KOREAN WAR CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 16mm color home movie footage that was filmed by an officer during the Korean War. He also filmed most if not all of the officers who were aboard at the time.
Great scenes of the deck throughout.
Scenes while she was in dry dock.
Scenes while in heavy seas. This baby really pitches and rolls!!
A great sequence of a HOS3-1 helicopter landing up on the bow. Great footage of a vintage helicopter.
Some scenes of the USS Antietam (CVA-36) pier side.
Footage of the evacuation of Korean Refugees from Sok-To. You will see a lot of ice both in the water as the ship approached the beach, and then all over the beach. Obviously a brutal climate. This segment was filmed in black and white.
Scenes of the ship grounded in Kunsan Harbor, drying out.
Change of command ceremony, when LT Jones relieved LCDR Marty.
This is very unique and interesting footage of a seldom seen aspect of the Korean War, from the eyes of an LST.
About 21 minutes running time.

  • Produced by GRS Videos (TM). GRS Videos is dedicated to the preservation of Naval Aviation film footage. This passion began when the son of a recently deceased Korean War veteran told me how he had thrown away all of those "old 8mm films of planes flying off of a ship". Yes, I cried. Our heritage MUST be preserved. As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I have a strong interest in ensuring that our stories are not forgotten. If you have footage (16mm, 8mm, VHS, Super 8, Beta, or Digital) contact me at PLAT_Collector@verizon.net. I will also gladly trade any footage I have for new footage (any format). So, if I have Naval Aviation footage you want, and you have something I do not have, contact me and I am confident we can work something out. I am always looking for new PLAT mishaps and home movies/video of carrier operations and life on carriers. All proceeds go into obtaining and preserving more Naval Aviation footage. Gary R. Schreffler served on USS Midway (with HS-12) from 1984-1991.
