1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    That's Hae-byung dae, the Korean Marines.

    If it is from Vietnam, they were stationed out of Da Nang; otherwise, they are garrisoned on the outskirts of Seoul.

    So actually it looks like it's actually Korean War vintage, from a USMC member. Found another shirt from same guy today that is WW2 vintage.

    I don't think the Koreans had a military during World War II as they were under Japanese occupation. The RoK Marines weren't formed until 1949.
