Walls Coming Down at CRC

» by in: USFK

Camp Red Cloud officials help with Korean highway expansion project:

Fifteen years of negotiations and planning came to fruition Friday when a bulldozer punched a hole through Camp Red Cloud’s old outside wall.

The Army Corps of Engineers and its contractors finished building a new base wall several months ahead of schedule, thereby giving Uijeongbu city workers a head start on widening Highway 3, said Army Corps of Engineers project manager Kenneth Jen.

This highway expansion project is much needed because the traffic in front of CRC is absolutely horrendous most of the day and has a high amount of traffic accidents. Hopefully this highway expansion will cut down on the traffic problem and make the road safer as well.

    Stationed at CRC from July 79 to July 80. Remember Colonel Noe, Batman, JO Koch, PJ, all the other ROMADS. Team Spirit, smell of the rice paddies in early spring after the first thaw.

    I was stationed in at Delta Battery 2nd/71st ADA (Hawk)in 1980. My compound was north of Uijeongbu, in a village called Koiyongnee. I don’t know what province it was in. I would have never guessed that Uijeongbu would grow like it has. And I never imagined that a highway would be outside Camp Red Cloud’s main gate.

    That’s HWY 39, not 3. HWY 3 runs N/S between Dongducheon and Uijongbu.

    My name is Ronda Cavel, my husband served at 59th AVN at Camp Red Cloud from March 1966 thru April 1967. He now has stage 4 lung cancer in both lungs. I am trying to find out about any chemical spraying, just before these dates and during these dates. Also would like to find any of his buddies that served during this same time period.
