Kunsan AB, Korea, It was my second base and my first time overseas, I liked Korea so much I stayed for 3 years in a row. Thanksgiving was always at the Chow Hall, and absolutely everyone went. The DFAC crew always put out a great spread for all the holidays at the Kun.

About A Year Ago I Googled Osan Regarding It's Progress & What It Looks Like NOW...
I'm SO Glad I Served In The Mid 60's, About 10 Years After The Truce Was Signed;
And It Was An ADVENTURE Instead Of Just Another Duty Assignment. As I Was Watching The Videos Of The Down Town Area, I Though To Myself "Were It Not For The Signage, It Could Have Been Down Town, Los Angeles, In Korean Town"
And The Base?....We Lived In Quonset Huts, With About 100 + To Each Section."
And NOW They Have 1 Person Rooms In Brick Buildings.......
Being Born In 1944, I've Seen Everything From The Days When Horse Drawn Carts, Delivering Milk & Ice To Our Homes In Detroit, TOP Watching TV The Night This Country Landed A Man On The Moon.... I Also Served During The Cuban Crisis, And During The Vietnam Era, As Well As When Kennedy Was Assassinated, And OUR Screwing-Up The Bay Of Pigs Invasion.... I LIVED Life... And Only SEE The New Recruits As "Passing Through" On Their Way To Somewhere Else

A1C Medrick "Rick" DeVaney - I too lived life, in my 23 years I visited 143 countries, have lifelong friends in many of those places, did things that would check the box in most folks buckets list, and married a beautiful Korean girl who I am still married too after 36 years! I was in Desert Storm, OEF, OIF, and pretty much every flying operation we had up until 2007 when I retired. I know things have changed, but there are still folks making the most out of thier situations and living life to the fullest. 건배!(geonbae)

Now THAT Is "LIVING"; And Living Life Is What Everyone Should Do..
And It's Unfortunate That So Few Actually Do.... One Must Be Willing To Take Chances & Accept The Fact Some Things Will Fail; And It Takes Failing To Learn How To Reach The Top....And The Top Is Just A Goal. But It's Similar To Traveling; Sometimes It's The Trip Which Is More Of An Adventure That Reaching Place You're Going, And That's What Living's About.. Never Knowing What'll Happen, Then Experiencing The Results ~~ No Matter What They Are.
