In late November 1950, Hall was a member of Headquarters Battery, 503rd Field Artillery Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division. On Nov. 29, Hall's unit received orders to move from Kunu-ri to Sunchon, North Korea. The division received reports that the Chinese People's Volunteer Forces (CPVF) had set up fireblocks on several roads, including their planned withdrawal route. The division organized a movement into convoys, with Hall in the eighth convoy. Hall's battalion began their withdrawal route through an area known as "The Gauntlet." Hall was reported missing in action on Dec. 1, 1950, in the vicinity of Somindong, North Korea.
