Division commander, Major General William F. Dean determined that the 21st Infantry Regiment was the most combat-ready of the 24th Infantry Division's three regiments. From the formation, Dean decided to send the 21st Infantry's 1st Battalion because its commander, Lieutenant Colonel Charles B. Smith, was the most experienced leading men, having commanded a battalion at the Battle of Guadalcanal during World War II. From the division garrison, C-54 Skymaster transport aircraft airlifted one battalion under Smith's command into Korea. The battalion deployed quickly to block advancing North Korean forces, performing a holding action while the rest of the division could be moved to South Korea by sea.[9]
