A photo taken on the roof of South Korean Army headquarters in Seoul in 1949, shows Nichols (far left), along with unidentified US and South Korean officials, inspecting a human head in a bucket. Severed heads of Communist guerrillas were often sent to Seoul to show progress in the civil war, Nichols wrote. "I have seen these things," he said. "I have survived in spite of the memories."
