    Not really actually, Korea as a whole has almost no violent crime and the areas around the bases where you think there would be some are really safe. There is a strong police presence almost everywhere as well. There is also a strictly enforced curfew for the military personnel in Korea that Okinawa doesn't have, so you won't see any military personnel late at night. If you couple that with the fact that most soldiers in Korea aren't allowed to drive. so tend to stay on and around post most of the time. The only are I can think of that had any noticeable crime is the russian district in Busan where there are no U.S. Army bases. Honestly being stationed in Korea and stationed in Japan are two totally different worlds.

    There is now a curfew in Japan for military personnel. This is due to a series of rapes.

    That sucks for those guys. I got sent TDY to Okinawa for a week from Korea, with the whole no curfew thing we pretty much drank all night every night. It was awesome.

    ROK Marines

    I'm a US Marine who served with the ROKMC Blue Dragon Brigade in Vietnam, 1967-68. I was with 1st ANGLICO, detached to the Blue Dragons. We accompanied all the infantry companies and their recon platoon in 1-, 2-, and 3-man teams. I served with 9th, 10th, and 11th Companies, and the recon platoon.

    Whenever they weren't on ops they practiced daily back in the CP. Many weren't in great form but they were far superior to the enemy in hand-to-hand situations, sometimes employing the e-tool quite effectively.

    The purpose of this post is to debunk some of the unfounded rumors I see on the internet. They were outstanding warriors, and they did not massacre innocent civilians in my experience. They did not cut off heads or other body parts in my experience. ANGLICO Marines have annual reunions. I have heard no such stories.

    Please don't dishonor those who fought by our sides, providing over 300,000 warriors to fight the communists in Vietnam. And for anyone who wanted me dead, along with Jane Fonda and the like, I MADE IT HOME ALIVE! Thanks to the Korean Marines who took great care of me. I'm pretty sure that the negative comments about Korean Marines are from those who don't know what they are talking about. So far as the treatment of Korean Marines by superiors, you just don't understand the culture. But I understand that kkolabaga is officially prohibited today.

    To all the Marines out there,

    Hey Anglico!
    My Judo coach was attached to the platoons chongryong (blue dragons) brigade. He said he hauled around a radio, called in air support etc. I was at a tournament and he kept shouting "CHONGRYONG!" and threw me off (I am Korean and my pops was an ROK army officer, when he found that out on came the vietnam war stories)
    His name is Gerald Lafon; but he served from 70 - to the last korean units pulling out.

    Roka & rokmc

    First, if your Pops was a Tiger, then please tell him Maeng-Ho for me. If a White Horse, then Pil Seung. In either case, please thank him for his service and sacrifice in defense of freedom. I hope is enjoys good health.

    Your Pops may be aware of a great bilingual website for Vietnam veterans, http://cafe3.ktdom.com/vietvet/

    So far as Gerald Lafon is concerned, he was likely with 1st ANGLICO, Sub Unit 1. ANGLICO Marines have two reunions each year, one coming up at the end of May at Quantico. We ANGLICO Marines would welcome any history he can share.

    If he wants to check out a restricted-access website for ANGLICO Marines and those who fought by our sides, he can contact me through you. I'd have to exchange some emails with instructions. Our website is www.1anglico.org/forums. He won't be able to self-register.
