Camp Red Cloud: 1965

Camp Red Cloud: 1965

William Jordan, Guard Mount, 55th Military Police, Camp Red Cloud, Uijeongbu, South Korea, 1965.

From the photo albums of William Jordan of Ohio who served with the Army Military Police at Camp Red Cloud Army Base in Uijeongbu, South Korea. Camp Red Cloud was located between Seoul and the Korean Demilitarized Zone. Photos are from April 7, 1965 to March 30, 1967.

Camp Red Cloud, which had been a hub for American troops deployed near the front lines since the 1950-53 Korean War, closed in 2018. The base was named in 1957 in honor of Medal of Honor recipient Cpl. Mitchell Red Cloud Jr., who was killed during a Chinese assault in the first year of the 1950-53 Korean War. The base is in the town of Uijeongbu, which was home to the real-life unit that inspired the popular TV show M.A.S.H.
