Comments: Great site, my Dad was in Korea in 1953-54, he was in the 24th ID, 1st Lt. Edward F. Turner. He doesn't talk much about it, never has, but he does have photos from his tour. He now has alzhiemers, so I'm afraid we'll learn of his experiences while there. If anyone knew him then, please drop me a line, I'd like to fill in the blanks. I served in Vietnam in 1956-66 as a Helicopter Pilot, Welcome home and thanks!

Comments: Bobby and his mother sent Jin nam and the baby 1/14/57 gifts very often. He was going to send for her and Bobby Jr but things got bad in soule and the interpriter of his letters fled with military movment. They lost touch .
In 1951 Jin nams mother feared for their lives and demanded she marry an GI and then shipped them off to the States.
I believe Bobby might have been from Ca. He was 21 in early 1956. I was told he was in charge of a bunch of keys so I think he might have been in the kitchen or Commisary.
Bobby Sr now has a Grand daughter and whe would love to find him if he is still a live.
http://www.picturetrail.com/abcnoah has an album titled OUM. Here you will see them as they were in 1961 prior to leaving Korea.


Keywords: Bobby ( do not know last name )
Jin nam wife to be. She was 3mo pregnant when Bobby's unit shipped back to the states. They had al the paper work to get married done. As much as she loved this strawberry blond blue eyed american GI her pregnancy kept her in fear of the unknown and stayed behind.

WRONG WAY LANDING

City and State: CINCINNATI OH

Unit: BASE COMM. K-9

Service or Relationship: AIR FORCE VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: I was in the control tower in the summer of 56 when a C-47 pilot wanted to land when we had about a 500 foot ceiling. It was day time but we had no GCA. Our GCA was to stand outside the control tower and listen for the plane. At K-9 the field is surrounded on 3 sides by hills. The largest is about 3,000 feet high. The safest thing to do is to fly over the Peter Nan radio beacon and head south about 5 miles. This lets you down over the SuYoung Bay and you should be able to see the field from over the water. This pilot was very familiar with the field and deceided he could make a north to south landing. As he let down he said " I have the field in sight". To the control tower operators horror, the pilot was parallel with the field but over the SuYoung River. He is lined up for an auger into radar hill. He goes back up and for some reason comes in from from west to east. The strip is north and south only.
Unwilling to accept defeat, the pilot tips the C-47 up on one wing to get a 360 heading. However, there is only about half of the 5,000 foot runway left. The good part is that he can chose which half to use. As all Air Force pilots, this guy must have been good. He was able to set the 47 down on the runway without major damage to the plane. I can't say what damage there were to any passengers life span.
I was just a radio repairman who was checking equipment in the tower when this occurred. I was the one outside listening for location of the plane. I figured this was a normal landing.
K-9 was a short field but 5,000 feet wide. The Base Commander was the pilot so nothing was ever said.

Service or Relationship: AIR FORCE VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: We were just the "horse holders" until the USAF could turn everything over to the ROK. In 56, K-9 was used by (CAT) Civil Air Transport. This was an airline owned by the CIA. During 50-53, K-9 was home of the 452nd Bombardment Group. Their B-26s flew night missions out of K-9 and other fields. According to ORR KELLY in his book" From a Dark Sky", the 21st Troop Carrier Sqd.(C-47) of the 315 Air Div. flew 5 to 6 hr. missions to insert personnel(rabbits) behind the lines( Operation Aviary). Henry Aderholt of Fort Walton Beach, Fla. would have a lot of information about these flights. Mr. Aderholt may have the only remaining flight records of det. 2, 21st TCSq. K-9 was an unusual base. In 56, I burned the contents of the safe in the comm. center before turning the center over to ROK. Most were stamped SECRET.

Keywords: K-9 Pusan East in '55 and '56. 2710 ABW became 6170 ABG det.2 in 2/56 when base was turned over to ROK.

Comments: Was trained? as a com-center clerk at Camp Gordon and shipped to Korea Christmas Eve on the Good ship "Marine Adder" arrived at the 24th Sig Co late January 1956. I was assign to supply and soon after attended NCO supply school for two weeks at Camp Jecelin (near Suwan), I remember the bitter cold and was damn lucky to bunk in supply(a steel prefab) we put in a shower that summer, a plywood structure with a discarded belly tank and a submerged water heater. {"We had it made in supply") I am looking for any and all who might remember me and or supply, can't remember all the names so I will not list them. I purchase a Savage shotgun at PX in Munsan and hunted the back woods( still have the division hunting license from provost marshal) most of my buddies figure I was hunting something else, but although I knew all girls in village, it was only because they spoke some? English. I returned home on the Good ship Breckingridge(spelling) and docked in Seattle the day before Easter 1957 and was re-assigned to Fort Meade in Maryland....
