Note from Christine Hyatt on September 8th 2017:
I lived in Hannam Village (H,F, and D bldgs) and went to SAES/SAHS from 1987-1996. Many memories for me of Hannam Village from Girl Scouts, to the yearly carnival, summertime spent at the swimming pool, endless hours on the playground, taking piano lessons out the back gate, buying snacks in the stores just outside the gates, reading endless books from the Hannam library, playing billiards at the Hannam youth center, renting VHS tapes inside the Hannam shoppette…all my childhood memories revolve around Hannam Village and Yongsan, Korea. My heart hurts a little at the sight of this military apartment complex being demolished. Many of my other friends who lived in Hannam Village feel the same childhood loss after hearing about the tear down of Hannam Village, via Facebook last year. I hope the people/community who helped run that place know how much it will be missed by countless families and now-Grown children who will never forget and always call Hannam Village our ‘home’ and have a very special place in our hearts. Thank you for the wonderful memories, Hannam Village!
