Stanley? Don't know where that one is... I inprocessed at a small camp just outside the main gate to Camp... the hell was it called, again? Hovey? Whichever camp it was in TDC. We also boarded helos there a couple times, too. We had one company at Camp Giant in Munsan, but that camp was mostly DPW stuff (and I imagine it's shut down now, too), and Camp Garry Owen was in that same vicinity, too. I really don't remember too many of the camps by name.. I think there was a Camp Mobile, Camp Nimble... hell, I don't remember. I can remember KTC, Nightmare Range, and I think the JSA camps were Liberty and.... Bonifas. Red Cloud was in Seoul, IIRC. I don't know which ones are still in existence.

Red Cloud is Uijongbu, not Seoul.

That was Camp Casey, Hovey is on the other side of Casey, the small camp was Mobile.

My unit moved from Stanley to Casey while I was there as it was being turned over to 8th Army. I still love this t-shirt I bought. "2ID, where the men are Men and the boys are south"

Yeah, I didn't get a chance to get familiar with that place. Thanks for the correction.

Yeah... that's it... Mobile. I thought that place was a hellhole, until I got to Camp Greaves. And Greaves was the Ritz compared to the big sandbox.

I'm much too civilianised now to go back, I think

I spent 2 1/2 yrs there. Camp Eagle and Camp Page. I loved it.
We used to laugh at the 2ID guys. We had brand new barracks and no stupid passes to get off post on the weekends. It was one big party.

ahhhh camp Greaves 1991, what a wonder sh!!t hole, 24hrs propaganda music courtesy of NK 1950s barracks for us medics and motorpool grease monkeys, and nothing worth looking at, 2 people at the time can be on pass, yes those memories are delish and of course as a scout medic, I got to know every hill in that ******** country very well, but the air assult missions made all worth it.

then seuol, 121 general hospital in 1999, yeah baby party time and plenty of women from many difrerent countries, but I still like my American women better, German girls are second best.

ah so many memories of that sh11ty country, and the delightful smell of rice paddies, just perfect.

camp Casey and the turtle farm...who remembers why they call it turtle farm??? and we used to call the neebies turtles... I do I do

Of all my years in the regular army and the National Guard, I managed to not ever have the pleasure of going to Korea. Damn! Sounds like I missed out on some fun.

"Juicy/drinky girls."

"Turtle Farm."

Two new phrases to add to my lexicon. Thanks!

For some reason, my father HATED Korea, something about a bunch of Chinese and Northern Koreans trying to kill him kinda turned him off of the place.
