Corporal Brockett was a member of Battery A, 57th Field Artillery Battalion, 7th Infantry Division. On or about December 2, 1950, as he was defending his position near Hagaru-ri, North Korea, his position was overrun and he was listed as Missing in Action. He was presumed dead on December 31, 1953. DOD records cite December 6, 1950, as date of loss, but due to the internal chaos within the unit due to high losses, it is impossible without eyewitness confirmation to have a specific date of actual loss. The final breakout of the survivors from East of Chosin occurred on December 1-2, 1950. By December 6, 1950, the able-bodied survivors from the unit were fighting south from the Chosin Reservoir. Confirmation needed of actual date of loss.
