Comments: Jack: You do good work! With the return to Paris site photos, I can truthfully say, I have now completed my "tour" of South Korea. I continue to marvel at the changes that have taken place over the past 55-years.
Comments: My Korean wife of 26 years left home November of 2009 and we have heard nothing from her since March when she was ostensibly in Incheon. I have unconfirmed reports she is in Kwangju and an internet search produced an address under her name for APO AP 96262. Her name is Pyong Ok Akers and my sons and I would like to find out if she is well and happy. If anyone knows of her and especially if anyone knows of where she is I would be grateful to hear from her.
Comments: Always wanted to do this to you, a msg from Korea. We did the Highpoint Site visit yesterday...WOW. There will be an article on the visit in the Morning Calm. Steve Hoover accompanied me on the visit. See you Monday. Bob
I will be visiting Osan Ab in May of 2011 for about 6 days. Additionally, my plans include 9 Days in Bangkok, Thailand, 6 days in Singapore, 14 days in Perth, 5 days in Sydney and 5 days in Drwin Australia and finally 30 days in Auckland, New Zealand. If anyone is interested in traveling and would enjoy this trip with me, Please contact me at the e-mail site. This includes sharing the hotel and transportation expenses, Airfare, medical and food expense we be individual expenses.
Comments: Good to see that Osan AB continues to grow. Since my last visit in 2004, from Goggle Earth, I see many new buildings have been constructed. The younger military generation would not understand or recognize what the older generation of guys went through to make Osan AB what it is today. The old huts,(So called housing) with 24-48 to a barracks have long passed. Cold nights, and humid summers however are still present. For those men and women current station at Osan, Enjoy it all, many past residents have made Osan what it is today for your pleassure. A much easier life stile since 1953
Thank you for informing me of Curley's passing and including his memorial slide show on your site. I will always cherish meeting this man and am grateful for all of his assistance in pointing me to contacts for my research on AF and Army comm/sig sites in Korea. We will all miss this gentleman.

Comments: I am active duty Air Force and will be going back to OSAN for the 2nd time. My wife and mother-in-law want to come out and visit me. Will my mother-in-law have any problem coming on base with my wife to visit? Or will we pretty much have to stay off post?
Admin reply: Darrell,
Your wife will be able to sign your mother-in-law in as a guest. Two important rules that, if not followed, could lead to problems:
1. Your wife must stay with her mother at all times. 2. Your mother-in-law will not be allowed the enter the Commissary or Exchange.
What that means is your wife should not try to escort her mother if she plans to do any shopping.
Other than that, your mother-in-law can use the MWR facilities such as clubs, theater, bowling alley, etc., but she must be escorted at all times.
