Korean War Color Photo Slides – USS Okanogan APA 220 – Evacuation of Chinnampo


 

 

Picked up a nice 15 slide Korean War grouping on ebay this past week. After doing some research on the USS Okanogan (APA-220) I found that it took part in the evacuation at Chinnampo in December of 1950. Looking at the photos, it is obvious that they were taken around Christmas time – and there are some shots of civilian and POW evacuees as well as a nice image of some 3rd Division soldiers.

  1. Your work is outstanding!. I’m writing a book about USS OKANOGAN (APA 220) and would love to include your photos of my ship taken during Korea. I need to purchase, or otherwise get your permission to use the photos, and need to get clear copies. Your help, guidance, permission etc. is really appreciated, and I offer my thanks up front.
