The 3rd Battalion, 29th Infantry Regiment arrived at the summit of Hadong Pass on 27 July. The lead companies were ordered to deploy along the sides of the road and to move to higher ground to the north. The forward command group witnessed a column of soldiers approaching from the west, some dressed in South Korean uniforms, some sporting the KPA mustard brown. When called out to identify themselves in Korean, the troops responded by scattering to the sides of the road. As the now-identified North Korean troops scattered, all hell broke loose as the KPA sprung its trap. North Korean rifle, machine gun, and mortar fire swept over the pass from the high ground to the north.
