Private Robert Daune Quatier
Private Robert Daune Quatier was born on July 8, 1930 in Clark County, Washington, and served with A Company, 1st Battalion, 19th Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division. He went missing on July 16, 1950 during the Battle of Kum River. His remains were never recovered.
On the evening of July 15, 1950, the U.S. Army’s 19th Infantry Regiment held defensive positions along the south bank of the Kum River. As dusk approached, North Korean People’s Army tanks appeared on the opposite shore and began firing on the U.S. positions. Although U.S. troops repulsed the attacks that evening, the next morning the NKPA crossed the river and launched a major attack against the 19th Regiment. The Regiment soldiers were forced to retreat in small groups across the countryside. Of the
900 soldiers in the 19th Infantry Regiment when the Battle of Kum River started, only 434 made it to friendly lines.

For his brave and unselfish service, Private Quartier was awarded,
Purple Heart
Combat Infantryman Badge
Marksmanship Badge
Korean Service Medal
National Defense Service Medal
Republic of Korea Presidential Citation
Republic of Korea War Service Medal
United Nations Service Medal
Army Presidential Unit Citation
Army Good Conduct Medal
