In February of 1953, a bunch of new U.S. Air Force pilots left Camp Stoneman,CA. enroute to the Korean theatre of war. The trip over on the DC-4 required brief stops at Hawaii, Wake Island, and Japan. From there, the pilots would head to separate destinations for their assignments. Some of those pilots would be assigned to K-13 Air Base, Suwon, South Korea. Then 1st Lt. Fick Henderson, photographically documented his tour of duty in Suwon very well, as you will see below. Fick also carefully catalogued most of his pictures with captions and dates. With perhaps one or two exceptions, the caption under each photograph is an exact quote of what Fick wrote on his 35mm slides.
