Guard Post (OP) Ouellette

Guard Post Ouellette is a place full of history. US presidents, Congressmen and Senators, along with foreign dignataries have visited the GP for a view of North Korea and to maybe catch a glimpse of the elusive "DMZ Tiger". Of historical importance, PFC Joseph White walked into North Korea from GP Ouellette.

1981-82. ouellete post commander LT John Wickham, US Army, A Company 1/9th Infantry (Manchu) Camp Liberty Bell, just outside DMZ. 1/9th had US DMZ mission in Winter months. Also led DMZ patrols, quick reaction force. On patrols sometimes at night nearly intercepted North Korean patrols. Once snowy night we startled 2 NKoreans, we set up ambush but GSR radar at Collier GP tracked then reversing course running back to North. Cat & mouse game but we were told they would refuse to surrender and die fighting. Better they knew we found them versus firefight as no air support in DMZ.
