Cornfield Meet

Things collide here.

USAF, South Korea, 1971-72 – Part 2

I’ve scanned another couple pages’ worth of my dad’s pictures from Korea. (Click here for some background on this project and the first batch of photos.) Clicking on any of the images will take you to the full photoset and much larger versions of the pictures.

Dad’s standing on the right. The guy on the left is in several of dad’s photos.

Update 1/3/15: Flickr comment from Pat Bachman, who served with dad: “Medic’s hooch at Kojin in 72.”

Also provided by Pat Bachman, via Flickr: “Mr. Ahn – cook and part time bartender at the 269 lounge.”

As noted previously, I’d love any feedback, input or insight into the locations and situations captured in Dad’s pictures, so if you know someone who served in this area around this time – or even if you can translate some of the Korean signs in the photos – feel free to get in touch with me through the comments or by emailing booth(at)

  1. There are some amazing images here – I believe that photos like these are literally a “snapshot” in time, capturing special moments. Thanks for sharing them!

  2. The beach is where he lost his wedding ring…..Can’t remember names other than Joe O”Shaughnessy from New York, his commander. Taller thinner than any I see so far. Joe got end tables like your dad sent home and we still have.

  3. I remember and thought alot of your Dad very much so. I was with him at Kojin. Since he was the medic, he provided me with sleepiing pills and played basketball with me .
    I was a Sgt then. I worked in electronics – Radio relay.
