The sun was down, the night was dark, and the perimeter lighting was in full sight. Our squad was slowly moving toward our objective – Kunsan Airbase. Skirting through a benjo ditch only a few hundred meters from the airbase, our squad abruptly came to a screeching halt. Were we compromised, if so, by whom?
We had intelligence from one of our probing teams that revealed the base had outside-the-perimeter listening and observation posts (LP/OPs). We knew the base was utilizing exterior patrols as far as 2-3 miles beyond the perimeter. Our route was fully mapped with the latest intelligence. There was no way the base defenders could have detected us.
