I recently found the following story.

Based on a True Event

Atomic Kimchi is a novel and although it’s fiction, it’s based on an actual historical event. In February, 1973, an explosion destroyed building S-210 at Camp Ames, a US Army installation in the Republic of Korea. Camp Ames was a Special Weapons Storage Facility, Army-speak for a nuclear weapons storage depot and on a cold night long ago, someone set off an explosion in a bunker that stored atomic weapons. My novel takes that actual event and continues a story of espionage and intrigue beyond the actual event to something that could have happened.

In the above paragraph, the author describes an event that I was right in the middle of. BOOM, and suddenly a hundred MPs were armed and in defensive positions around the facility. There were already plenty of us on regular duty. Tower Jockies, SAT(Strategic Alert Team), BAF(Backup Alert Force), and now the rest of us were out there waiting for the other shoe to drop. I don't know how much I can say about things, but I helped the CID investegator search through the wreckage the next morning. I found the padlocks used to secure the building where 3 of 5 Nike' Missle Warheads were detinated. I'm not sure if he's the guy who wrote the book but it was he and I with a couple other MPs gathering evidence. And he was interested in the condition of the door locks for obvious reasons. One of the Tower Jockies who was on duty in his Tower maybe 50 feet away, was lucky to be alive, and presumably shipped home. Now, these places were built by smart people to withstand this kind of thing. The arms were stored in underground bunkers, and buildings like S-210 were surrounded by huge concrete walls backed by massive dirt berms. The blast was mostly directed straight up. I've decided not to say anything about the "Special Weapons".

I was statironed at Red Cloud from 1979 to 1980 and also 1981/2 to October 1983. I was with A Company 304th Signal Bn both times. Your pictures brought back lots of memories for me. I had to leave Korea early because my wife and kids died in a house fire there. I was wondering if you were at red cloud during that time

Hi! I am looking for any information on my father who served in Korea. I don't have a name, although it might also be Jack. I was born in 1962 in Uijongbu, Korea. I believe he was there in 1961. I noticed 2 camps located near Uijongbu, Jackson and Piliaau. He might have been stationed there. I do have a photo. I also think he may have been from Wyoming. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
