Slovakia
These weapons I touched recently (Mosin rifle and PPSh SMG) are of Soviet origin (made in 1944), but they had been officially disabled for firing blank ammo only. But there are other reenactors who have fully functional guns (like that Mauser Kar98). It depends on the legislation, Slovak laws are more historical-guns friendly than in Poland or Czech.

Me in the middle and RSColonel_131st on the right, at my parent's place this August. That's his girlfriend, who decided to tag along.


Colonel's girlfriend reminds me of Elizabeth Banks (Seabiscuit,Spider-man).

Here I am happy to get my picture taken because the photographer made my glasses crooked so there would be no flash in my glasses lenses. I'm smiling there too.

Sorry,but these are all real old.
Probably the winter of 1982-83,when I was stationed in Alamogordo,New Mexico.
I'm the one throwing the kick.

Here's another,at a barbecue in Korea,circa 1984:

I didn't know you served over there, REB. I used to live a bit to the north and east of Osan for a while in the 70s--a bit too close to the DMZ for comfort. I thank you for your service.

Hi Shan-I was actually stationed at Kadena AB,Okinawa.
We had an Alert Duty commitment to Osan AB,Korea.
We kept 3 F-15C's fully loaded at all times-AIM-7's,AIM-9's,and 920 rounds of 20 mike-mike for the Gatling gun,if memory serves.
The North would periodically violate the airspace over the DMZ,in order to test our response time.
I'd imagine we may have done the same to them,as well.
My father was in the U.S. Army,in the Korean War.He's 82 now,and still has the occasional nightmare.
Thanks for the thanks-you are welcome.

The main reason that South Korea is a thriving republic these days is men like you and your father. I hope he can at least find some solace in that fact. My family's village was in the direct path of the Marines' landing at Inchon and subsequent thrust to Seoul. The Marines are revered because their liberation of the village marked the last battle the villagers experienced though the war dragged on for two more years. The food and medical supplies provided by the U.S. armed forces also prevented starvation during those times.

Isn't it weird that a peninsula can get so cold in the winter and so hot in the summer? Korea is a geographical oddity.

A funny anecodote: My family members who grew up during the time of the war loved the U.S. Army and Marines. But they feared the U.S.A.F. because the planes seemed to bomb everything without rhyme or reason. After observing the reactions of the ground pounders to Close Air Support, they were perplexed to see that EVERYONE feared the U.S.A.F. hahaha

Osan/Inchon is considered far south when you're stationed in Tong Du Chon!

LOL!

I remember visiting the DMZ in 1990 and seeing the tunnels. That was a, "You've gotta be frickin' kidding me!" moment.

PV, you were at Tong Du Chon (TDC)? What unit ? TDC to Toko-Ri through Blue Lancer Valley; Camp Casey to Camp Hovey.

When I was there (Camp Hovey - Toko-Ri) 76-78 I was with 1-38th Inf - The Rock Of The Marne at Camp Hovey for about 6 months. The rest was DMZ.
