Where and when were you in Korea?

Because I got out before the Iraq and Afghanistan trips started.

I spent a year in the ROK with CNFK (Commander, Naval Forces, Korea) Det Pohang. There were about 14 of us total - 6-8 Aviation Ordnancemen, 3 USN ABF (Aviation Bulk Fuelers), two Comms guys, a Gunny, and a LtCol as the OIC.

Was there July 94-July 95; I flew over just days after Kim Il Sung died, so tensions were all over the place. Although much of the fleet pulls into Pohang during major exercises, the rest of the year we were the only American unit stationed within two hours. There was a small detachment from III MEF (Okinawa) just down the road at Camp Muchuk, but the dozen Jarheads at CNFK Pohang make up a good portion of all the Marines allowed to be stationed in Korea.

It was terrible, rough duty...as the local USMC representatives, we were visited by VIPs constantly.


It was rough duty...


The only good part of the Dallas Cowboys

I was there for "Team Spirit" in '84 and we were in Po Hang, Pusan, and Osan.

Also in '84 I was TAD at Camp Stanley in Uijeongbu as well.

This occurred while I was stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in Okinawa.

I'm pretty sure we didn't run Team Spirit while I was there, but there were a couple smaller ones that only served to jack up the beer prices for the rest of us. ;-) We were responsible for all the USN/USMC ordnance at Pohang and another magazine a couple hours farther up the east coast - can't think of the name of that place now. Went to Pusan a couple times on "business" but the only thing I recall from that was getting stuck in rush hour traffic in our Kia van, yelling out the lyrics to "Cheeseburger in Paradise" from the tape deck...

Did the DMZ Tour through MWR just before I PCS'd back to the States. THAT is an eery, far-too-quiet part of the world.

Lots of Team Spirit but I spent an amazing year at Kunsan Sep 89-Sep 90 a proud member of the 80th FS Juvats. F-16 Weapons Flight Chief and left as a Production Super. Tough year but rewarding and worked with some of the greatest folks. It was long party.

I was there for Team Spirit '89 from January through April at Posco Pier in Pohang with CSSD-36. Volunteered for advance and rear party to maximize my time in country and it was well worth it. I was Sgt of the Guard so I was 24 on/24 off which gave me a lot of liberty time, spent a lot of time at Engineer Alley

Wow, reviving an old thread here.

Apache Troop, 4-7 Cav, Camp Hovey (Casey) until December
In a world surrounded by cavalry, tankers and artillery, myself and the other 20-something mortarmen in the squadron are the only infantry on Hovey...
