Military Memories Monday: Dad and Milt "Outside Our Little Nest at K-1", ABT 1952

My dad, Second Lieutenant Fred Pape, and his pilot partner, Captain Milton Royles, outside their tent at the K-1, the Pusan West Air Base in South Korea (Their regular base, K-9 or Pusan East, was closed for rebuilding of a runway).  The back of the photograph is stamped "Kodacolor Print...Week of November 24, 1952," so the photo was taken sometime before that date.  Dad had been in Korea for just a couple months at that point.  Dad said they had the only tent with a red door, because Milt painted it that color.  If you look closely, you can see the words "Sans Nookee Teepee" also painted on the door.
