Heavily fortified south bank of the Imjin River in South Korea.  The Imjin River comers out of North Korea where it runs much of the country, then crosses into South Korea, runs just south of the DMZ for a while then empties into the sea.  It has been called the "River of Death" because of the number of North Koreans found floating in it, dead, washing down into the south.  Common during periods of famine in the North.

Infantry soldiers patrolling inside the DMZ wore these armbands on recon patrols so as not to violate the armistice that ended the fighting in the Korean war.  As DMZ MPs, we were technically not combat troops, as MPs are not combat soldiers.  In my unit we took off those armbands at night, while on ambush patrols.  Funny huh?  There were actually no real MPs on the DMZ.

No longer around.  I was one of the last.  US troops no longer do missions inside the DMZ between North and South Korea.

Me in the middle, at the Indian Head Olympics (2ID) award ceremony.  I got first place, along with my team, in the Warrior Ordeal, it was an obstacle course race.  We had several of us in the team, I led our team in the run.  We got a (fake) gold medal, kind of cool.
