On 26 February 1951, from 1000 to 1200 hours, the 2nd Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment, was engaged in an assault of the enemy in order to capture high ground, near Habangnim, Korea.  Colonel Quinn, from the battalion's forward obsevation post, directed the operation of the regiment in its assult against the enemy.  Constantly edposed to enemy mortar and small arms fire, he directed and coordinated the attack in this forward position, remaining until the mission had been successfully comppeted.  His presence at this advance position, together with the aggressive leadership displayed, added greatly to the morale of the troops engaged with the enemy.  The gallantry displayed by Colonel Quinn on this occasion reflects great credit upon himself and the military service.  Entered Federal service from Maryland.

Quotes Describing Him

The best damn regimental commander you'll ever see!

Colonel Bill Quinn was the warlock and the Bison his talisman.

To men bogged down in surch terminology as GI, doughfoot, mud-churner and gox-hoe artist, the words Buffalo, musketter and infantryman strike a concordant notet.
