Ascom City, South Korea, January, 1959: Hang Nam Chong eagerly stands at the bar of the Top Three Club during a U.S. Army Signal Depot-sponsored year-end party for orphans of the Dong Chin home, which the unit supports. The delighted bystander is Pfc. Jimmy A. Pettigrew, of the 55th Signal Co. The children all received new shoes and warm underclothes for Korea's bitter winter, and enjoyed a multi-course Korean dinner.
