Graham preaching to the largest gathering of troops he addressed. The site was near the Punchbowl, the scene of intensive fighting in the autumn of 1951.

"As we got to the platform, the men waiting for the service to begin were singing Christmas carols. There must have been three or four thousand men, all standing and all wearing battle helmets. They had fixed up a platform from old planks and had raised it up from the ground because there was no slope there, just a level spot at the base of the hills. Again God spoke to their hearts and hundreds of men accepted Christ as Savior."

From I Saw Your Sons at War/The Korean Diary of Billy Graham
