pictures takes by Dave powers, 1971


Attached are some photos I took in 1971 and 1972 of Korean combat troops, and I thought that Jae-sung Chung may be interested in posting them on his web site.  I went to the site, but couldn’t figure out how to get the photos posted…!  The captions are a combination of what I had written on the back of the photos, and from memory.  Spelling might be a little fuzzy.
