Kunsan by the Sea (K-8)
(Click on any thumbnail to see a larger picture. All pictures are set to open in a new window. To return here, just close the window you're in.)

K-8 may not have exactly been Broadway, but we had our share of entertainment and fine dining establishments.
Invader Theater
Invader Theater - We saw some real action here.
USO tour
USO Tour - Jan Sterling and Broderick Crawford
King 8 Club
King 8 Service Club - A place where you could always get a cup of coffee and a doughnut -- served by a round-eyed girl.

Business as usual...
Enlisted Latrine Laundry Day
Enlisted Latrine - The sign over the barrel says, "No laundry will be done in this latrine." Laundry Day in the enlisted area.

briefing room mission briefing approaches
Just before the doors open for Group Briefing at K-8. Good news or bad news? Every mission starts with a briefing on the weather, developments on the front lines, the targets and times for the other Air Force units in the air with you, the ordinance you were carrying and your targets by Pintail number. "Pintail" was the 3rd bomb group call sign during the middle years of the war. You went through this ritual 50 or more times.

Stan Murphy
Stan Murphy conducts the daily preflight briefing. An unusual picture -- all the reconnaissance route designations -- the red routes, green routes and purple routes are shown, along with the "Holy Land" restricted area around Kaesong.
