I was glad to find your site on the web. I was stationed in Korea (With the 44th Engineer
Bn. construction and AFKN)
I have some pictures from my tour of duty, mostly with AFKN in Munsan...however, when I was
first in country (in-processed at ASCOM City) I remember very well the ride on the Army Bus to Fort Beavers where I was assigned
with the Engineers. The 44th Engineer Battalion (Construction) is the name of the unit mentioned on your site.
The 44th had one company at Beavers year round, but the home base was at Camp Carroll near Waegwan. In the winter, the
Battalion went down South to Camp Carroll. So, I was stationed at Fort Beavers from about Labor Day 1967 until after
Thanksgiving the same year. I remember the post very well, even today and was glad to see the pictures on your site.
I later transferred to AFKN Radio Tomahawk, but did pay a visit to the Fort Beavers area in
the Fall of 1968 and visited Camp Casey as well, while with AFKN. By the way, the AFKN Playlist you display is the one
I programmed (small world) as I was the program director and morning dj on Radio Tomahawk. Somewhere, I have the originals.
By the way, I visited Korea in 1984....but so much has changed. The only thing I saw
from Seoul to Pusan that had not changed was the train station in Seoul. Now, I am told that too, has been renovated.
I did not go north to any army bases, as I figured it would ruin the memories...Thought you'd like the info on identity of
the Engineer Battalion at Fort Beavers. Thanks for posting your site.
