For about 50 years, Camp Page was a US Army post located in the city of Chunchon, South Korea. It began as an airstrip called K-47 during the war.  It became the headquarters of the 4th Missile Command from 1958-1978, then was headquarters for the 1st Battalion 2nd Aviation and 542nd Medevac until it closed in 2005.

My own Camp Page experience is limited to the years 1964-1965, when I was stationed there as a radio teletype operator in the Radio Section of 226th Signal Company, a support unit of the 4th Missile Command.

On these pages are my attempt to capture the memory of those days stationed there and those who were stationed there with me.  For those who were there before and after, I wish to provide a look at what it was like 1964-65.

In 1951, Eighth US Army engineers prepared the runway in a burned out section of a newly recaptured town, Chunchom, at what would become Camp Page.
