That number is inaccurate and while it was a bloody pair of battles for no solid or obvious reason (UN forces withdrew to the permanent battle lines and a ceasefire was declared three weeks later) either for strategic or tactical advantage. ROK losses were 15 killed and 120 wounded and US losses were 243 killed and about 900 wounded, the vast majority of the UN troops were unscathed. Pork Chop Hill is more Hollywood than military history although Chinese casualties exceeded five thousand and two Medals of Honor (Posthumous) were awarded.
