To understand these photos, be sure to read Bill Buntin's story The Defector Became a Swinger

"The Sgt. in charge of the Honor Guard that day was Harry Thacker. Captain Bair was the MP Captain, and Lt. Col. Thompson was the senior officer from the unit. Bill Buntin is in the lead sedan, and was supposed to be the driver; by mistake the guy jumped into Terry's sedan, the 2nd one in line, and the sedans were parked pretty much bumper to bumper. The South Korean government wanted to give Terry some medals, but the Army fought the idea; not sure how that turned out." -- George Cole
