Note from Veteran George Breen @239flathead
Coco, the only holiday that I remember sharing with the Korean public was Armed forces day.( As best I remember this was the name of the day). The 570th along with other U.S. military bases, including Air Force, which brought in helicopters, displayed our trucks and shop equipment, at what looked to be a park, some where in Seoul. The Korean people, adults and kids, were invited to come and participate.
I think I have a picture I will send you.
I suppose that it was because of the difference in the Korean and American culture, but at Christmas time it was mandatory that we attend a Christmas movie that was shown at our NCO club of the 57th Co.Ord.. I can’t remember the name of the movie, but it was a movie I had seen when I was in school before high school! To be honest, I can’t remember for sure, this could have been Thanksgiving, or both Christmas and Thanks giving. They actually had us take time off from work to view the movie. They thought it was this important!
I will send pictures as soon as possible.
