Snapshot of U.S. Army soldier Charles G. Blevins of Mouth of Wilson, Virginia, standing in an open area near a side of a hill on Geoje-do Island, where a prisoner of war camp was located [called by the U.S. Army “Koge-do” or “Koje-do” Island] at the southernmost part of Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea. Geoje Camp was a United Nations Command (UN) POW camp that held North Korean and Chinese prisoners captured by UN forces during the Korean War. Some Army soldiers and Koreans are seen on the hillside in the background. Photograph taken while Blevins was serving in Korea in an artillery unit [circa 1951-1952].
