Navy Support to the Front Lines

As fighting stabilized along the 38th parallel, the Navy concentrated on providing U.N. ground troops with carrier-based and shore-based air support. Battleships, cruisers, and destroyers used their firepower to bombard enemy coastal guns, railroads, and fortifications. Navy hospital corpsmen also served with Marine units on the front lines, and Navy nurses and doctors worked to save lives and heal wounds on board hospital ships positioned just offshore.
