Hi folks! I am doing some research on Camp St. Barbara for my father. I am wondering if it is true that the Camp was located North of the 38? I haven't been able to confirm this looking at the maps.

Thanks for your thoughts!!

I believe that the 38th parallel is a straight line on the map that extends the width of Korea. Camp St. Barbara was north of this on or near the DMZ which was more of a jagged line. The following link talks a lot about St. Barbara and may be helpful to you.

If anyone knows this to be incorrect please post reply.

This will show it. The 38th runs through the center of Panmunjeom.



You can see Cp St Barbara (R228) on the map. R228 was what the airfield on the camp was called.

I remember being 17 years old in 1971 and traveling to Camp St Barbara my 1st time. I had spent a couple of days in the Seoul area before getting a bus ride up to the camp. It was late afternoon and I remember driving by a sign that said I was passing the 38th parallel. It felt like we were heading into North Korea; fortunately we were only heading to St Barbara.

If the Army knew how much fun I had at Cp St Barbara, they would take my Retirement Pay back. Smile
