• note from Diane Dahnert:
    This was my father’s office. He was the manager of the Military Banking Facility and for those in other bases in Korea.
    This was from 1970 to 1978. My father worked for Bank of America and was in charge of the MBF. I did attend school on Yongsan, from Kindergarten to 7th grade.
    Sadly, my father, Albert Kliene, passed away in 2012 at the age of 91. However, I do have some photos of him at the grand opening of the new bank on Yongsan, when it was relocated from the original building. I would be happy to include those

    my favorite places on Yongsan, I would have to say they were the Elementary, Middle and High Schools. Because I spent my childhood living near Yongsan, this is where I spent most of my time. But I also frequented the bowling alley, since I was in the Saturday morning league; and going to movies at Theater #2.

      I conducted my banking business at this facility when I moved from Camp Casey to Yongsan Garrison in August 1965.

          • Note from Scott on Friday 15th December 2017;
            Check out this video, I shot it in Korea on Super 8 film

            That’s my mom and dad and little brother at about 58 seconds in front of our duplex on South Post, Yongsan Garrison

          • Hi, I am attaching two photos from around 1972. These were originally shot on 35mm film and processed as slides. Our family kept the slides over the years, and in 2008 or so I had them all scanned and converted into digital files. They were huge files…I just resized these two. If they work, I will send the rest via WeTransfer.

            I took the shot of my dad, standing in front of our duplex. Google Earth shows me this house no longer exists. Around 10 years ago a large helipad was built there. If you use the Google Earth history function, you can still see the house, before 2006…it was on South Post, a little north of Collier Field, and a little east of Gate 19.

            The other shot is me, in Itaewon (I think) with my Super 8mm movie camera…

            Hope these work!
            Best,
            Scott
