Attic Find - Korean War Pictures

This one is my favorite - George Bond posing by the Freedom Gate Bridge over the Imjin River. The sign reads, "Freedom Gate Bridge, Rebuilt by Company C & Company A, 84th Engr. Const. Bn., 2nd Engr. Const. Gp."
In this one, he is wearing an armband that reads, "Port Sec[urity]"

The original bridge is STILL in use today but it's now called Freedom bridge ! ! !
The photo was taken on the North bank of the Imjin river looking south.. I've been across the actual bridge too many times. There was a rail bridge just to the left of the steel span and the brick pillars remain today.
The rail line still goes right into no mans land in the DMZ and a knocked out engine is still out there.. There are several other bridge remains in the area but they were all destroyed during the war.
