This gallery contains photographs that I took while in Korea during the war (1952-1953). These are NOT combat photos. I was stationed about five miles south of the combat action near the small village of Munsan-nee. Our responsibility was to construct and maintain the MSR (main supply route) to the front lines, including bridges, airstrips, helicopter landing sites, gun emplacements and the demiliterized zone in and around Panmunjom where peace talks were taking place. The photographs show some of our work and the Korean civilian population living behind the SBL (stay back line) where civilians were not allowed to pass. The photographs of the Korean people, especially the children and the situation they all were in, show a different view of the last few months of the Korean war. The photos were taken in black & white using a small inexpensive Kodak Bantam camera, so the photography quality is not the best ... but the subject matter is quite interesting! I hope you enjoy them.
