    Gosh it's hard to believe I was only 3 years old in 1954. :)

    That looks like a muddy, cold, miserable place to spend Christmas, @Lon Tanner . Thank you for serving there.

    Looks like a nice pair of boots for that muddy place though.

    Kimpo is now called Gimpo International and is at the west end of Seoul. Taegu is now called Daegu.

    Yes, I knew the names had been changed. I have been corresponding with a South Korean professor off and on over the years. I, too, was in Korea but In the army. I was in the hospital at the air base at Taegu for a ten days or so before transfer to a hospital in Japan.
