ROK Drop


Welcome to the ROK Drop Photo Archive. I have traveled all over Korea and have a huge archive of photographs on my hard drive that I’m slowly but surely uploading and writing travel narratives for. Below you can view the various travelogs I have written that are organized by province in Korea as well as other areas of the world I have visited.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and thanks for visiting the ROK Drop.

    Hey have you got any pics of Camp Long I was stationed there and Camp Page from 96 to 98 (what I can remember of it) I hated it then but now I would give anything to go back I guess thats what time does to you.

    Thank you

    Unfortunately Camp Long is one of the places that I do not have pictures for. Next time I am in Korea I will have to stop by Wonju and snap a few pics of the camp.

    I thought in Wonju around that same time. I went to Korea around 96 and taught adults there for a 1 1/2 – 2 years. I met and married my wife there and we get back every few years to visit family…

    I remember both Camp Long and Camp Eagle were slated to close as part of the USFK reformation — and after activists had kept a tent pitched at one of them over claims of soil pollution in nearby rice paddies.

    13th Helicopter Company was one hell of a Party in 1959 – Unlike others that might have hated their tour of duty, this Texan enjoyed every minute he spent inside the gates, and outside the gates. What went on in the *Vil*, stays in the *Vil*. I'll bet the Old Moose sure have aged – So have we – Yikkkkes !

    GI K,

    Some time ago you posted a story about USFK foreign service officers in Korea,it also had a picture of them together; maybe it was from S&S, not sure. Anyway, do you still have a link to that story? I recognized one of the dudes there as one of my old Platoon Leaders when I was a Drill Sergeant; last time I saw him was at CP TANGO during FOAL EAGLE 2007 just before I left. I'd like to try and get ahold of him again.

    Jim thanks for visiting. Where is Camp McIntyre located at because I haven't heard of it before? I like looking at the old pics of Korea. Feel free to post your pics over at the ROK Drop Forums:

    I have a special forum set up just for people to post their old pictures. Thanks again for visiting.

    Camp Mcintyre was near Munsan. i was there in '67 and '68. It was either closed or turned over to the ROK Army in the early '70's. 1st bn 17th Arty returned to Ft Sill and became a field arty unit, giving up the 8" self propelled guns

    In 1969-70, I was at Cp St Barbara supporting I Corp Artillery. We had a Detachment at St B, and another one at Cp Mcintyre supporting the Artillery there. I drove between the 2 camps many times to help. I Corp Artillery was part of the reduction of forces in late 70, as was the 4th Maint Bn that I was in.

    If anyone has some pictures of Camp Mcintyre that they could email me, I will add them to my web page about the Camps in Korea.

    Hi, I was stationed with 567 Amb Unit on the hill ( dustoff) at Camp Mosier , 43rd MASH in 69 & 70. Went TDY with 335 Maint/ 2&71st Hawk unit at Camp Jonathan Williams at Samsoni. Trying to determine how close I was to the "Z". Came down with Adv advanced Prostate Cancer in 99', filed an Agent Orange claim, was denied twice! Any body with any info that might help, please let me know. There was a Harold Williams that I replaced on tdy, tried an old e-mail address but did not work!

    I think Camp Jonathan Williams was located on MSR 1 north of Seoul and south of Camp Howze near Geumchon (about 30 minutes, 25-30 miles, south of Panmunjom). So, that would be pretty far from the Z, but I do not know how far south they sprayed.

    For Edward Rodriguez:

    I was at Camp Essayons Dec.'66-Late '67, 'C' Company 11th Engineers, straight thru the Main Gate. If, I remember, I've got some pictures in one of the Yearbooks we got back then. I see it's been a year since you posted so, you've probably given-up by now. If not, I'll share what I have.

    I guess our E-mail addresses are exchanged off-site somwhere, not sure this works…

    This is something that I’m seeing a great deal of and is also the same thing I feel myself. Though my tour of Korea felt like a hardship at the time I now look back on it very fondly. I see that same sentiment all over various blog sites. I know in my case its partially due to being unemployed in the US for an extended period and getting very worried about money (I stuck to a strict budget and had no money worries when I was enlisted).

    I’m really feeling for Korea these days with the flooding going on. The photos I’ve been seeing in and around Seoul are just amazing (and not in a good way!)

    Was stationed at Camp Hovey for 16 months in 1961-1962 with C/32 Infantry and C/34th Infantry of 7th Infantry Divison. The hills and mountains around Hovey and Casey were bare and looked like moonscapes. Now, I cannot believe how lush and green and covered in trees they are today. Looks like an American national forest. Truly amazing. And those old drafty and leaky quonset huts that we called home are long gone also. Things do change in 49 years.

    To Bill Lester, I was transferred from Camp Mosier in May of 1960 To Combat Support 1st B/G 32nd Inf Reg 7th Inf Div. I think the Camp was Camp Hovey, I’m not sure anymore. But I was with the SS-10 Anti-Tank Unit. Do you reconize any of this if so please EMail me at Thanks, Roy Shirah

    I moved up from Hong Kong to Korea in the LST Frederick Clover in 1957 with ‘B’ Troop 56 Field Squadron Royal Engineers we were attached to the 1st Battalon of the Royal Sussex Regiment based in Gloucesteer Valley just a way from Gloucester Hill. We were their to refurbish the camp for hand over to the American Army.
    Before we left Korea 24 Field Engineer Regiment, of which our Squadron was part of, had a memorial stone layed with the 1st Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment and the ROK Army.
    I was proud, when each morning when leaving my billet, to be able to give a silent prayer to these very brave men.

    Has anyone got any photos of Gloucester Valley in it’s present form and also in the late 1950′s. I was station their with the 1st Battalion Royal Sussex regiment. and have anumber of photos but wondered if their were anymore floating about.
    I have a particular interest in the Memorial for the Glorious Gloucesters for which 24 Fld Eng Regt RE laid a stone with the Sussex and the ROK army in memory of the Gloucesters.

    Stumbled on these links tonight. Sorry about no more Kalini(?) for Osan; great archieve a few years back. I was at K-55 in 63-65 and back for more thru the years. Still here, in fact. Any linkage with Glass from his year in Korea 65-66? Might have been dorm wing member we called “GL”?
