Other Nations Involved
Thirty-four other nations contributed food, medicine, technical advisors,
equipment, training, economic aid and the like. Four more - Australia, New
Zealand, Thailand, and the Republic of Korea - all furnished combat troops. A
fifth - the Republic of the Philippines - provided a civic action group that
had its own security force of infantry, armor, and artillery. The total of
foreign troops was 68,800. This was more than had fought under the United
Nations in Korea.
