In addition, unlike the Korea of the postwar period, this had a clearly limited border assuring the stability in South Korea.

    Camp Casey Pro-Life Center (PLC) under General ‘Gunfighter’ Emerson. Assigned to HHC 2nd Inf. PLC from 1/72 Armor in November of 1974.

    Many fond memories and personal attachments that are with me still. Some of the best times in my life were spent there.

    I arrived at 7th Signal Co at Camp Casey in Sep 1954 after IX Corps was closed. My rotation date was in Sep 55.

    The Engineer Bn was across the road from us and the 32 Inf was a tad closer to the MSR. Where the British NAAFI was situated. The NAAFI’s hot tea, sweetened with milk was a welcome during the winter.

    The Engineers had a Class 6 operation that furnished us a lot of Seagram’s VO. The VO’s “ribbon’ was a command tolerated “short timer’s” badge, (under ? 30 days?).
