B Co., 1st Bn, 15th Inf. Regt. - Seeking Kelly & Flanagan
My name is Joseph J. McRoberts. I was on Kelly Hill with Capt. Kelly (sic) and Lt. Flanagan, B
Co., 1st Bn., 15th Inf. Rgt. Kelly was the C.O. of B Company. Flanagan was 2nd Lt., platoon
leader. Also Lt. Marr, platoon leader, was with us. I was the Forward Observer.

tried to put together an F.O. team from scratch to do a tour of duty, four days, always under intense
mortar fire and some sniper fire, stayed an extra day on Kelly to zero in a company from the 65th Inf.

At any rate, about a week or so later the Chinese overran Kelly and our word was that no one came back.
All kinds of rumors including the Chinese were beheading prisoners in full view of our lines. They
counterattacked a number of times to no avail. It's a long story about the 65th Regiment.
Flanagan, I believe was from Massachusetts. I don't know where Kelly or Marr were from.
Maj. John Eisenhower was the S-3 of the Battalion when I was made LNO to the 1st Battalion. I would
like to get in touch with either Flanagan or Kelly.
