Part Four: Photographs taken in the Republic of Korea during 1968 & 1969

This is Part Four: I took these photographs while I was in the U.S. Army stationed in the Republic of Korea for thirteen months during 1968 and 1969. 

In 2016, I was approached by a representative of the National Archives of Korea, a branch of the federal government of the Republic of Korea. The National Archives of Korea was interested in acquiring my Korean photographs. I was honored by their request, and I donated approximately 1,200 original color and black-and-white photographs to the Korean people

Below are some of my Korean photographs after being expertly scanned and digitized by the National Archives of Korea. I did not include a description for each photo; I prefer to let the pictures speak for themselves.
