This is amazing. I was part of the 50th AKWC Staff in Yongsan back in 2000. That was when I was still on AD; Admin NCO @ the Joint Visitor's Bureau (JVB). I was just thinking when the next commrmoration celebration would be, Googled & found this page. 🙂 It would be nice to be a part of the next one, maybe 70 or even better, the 75th anniversary. Looks like the whole dynamic has changed quite a bit though. 🙂
