Essex and the Korean Conflict
18 August 1951 - 13 January 1953
ESSEX won 4 Battlestars for her service during the Korean Conflict. I wanted to add something to this website to denote that service. These are PDF files of the actual combat action reports from that period. PDF files may be slow loading, nevertheless I have included these links for those of you that would like to see them. Some interesting reading here. Essex served her country well during this time. Robert Sourisseau
