I Was there.  It was awarded for our help in capturing North Korean infiltrators who attempted to kill President Pak during the Blue House incident.  It was awarded to the members of the 2nd Bn 31st inf Polar Bears in Late 1969 Early 1970 we were TDY to Camp Matta North of Freedom Bridge at the time.  You can get a replacement by going to Ebay, I just ordered one for $12.50.

The Bayonet Infantry Badge or BIB as we called it was awarded to members of the 7th Div. who served on the DMZ in Korea. I still have mine and am thankful I kept it all these years. My unit 3/32 Inf. served time on the DMZ in 1969.
