There's a Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere


Late in 1952 a nineteen year old CE3 arrived at K3 Korea. It was the last year of the Korean war and K3 was a busy fighter/bomber airstrip of the First Marine Air Wing, MAG-33. Jets took off daily loaded with bombs. CBMU-1 was attached to the Air Wing. Our main project at that point in time was the construction of a 500 foot airstrip extension which required a huge amount of fill. This Seabee was assigned to work on the powerline crew that was in the process of constructing a high voltage overhead primary distribution system for the base.
