You really cannot see anything 'military confidence.' Don't even try.
However, I still remember what I did at that base. Especially driving around the runway was the best. What a rapture at that time. A few of my friends envied me for the ID card. But, the only chance they can get in was 'Open base,' which was an open event thing for all civilians with exhibition of all the military vehicles and air show. Because of this huge event, my friends asked me if they can go. It was open to the civilians too, but still sometimes the gate guards denied a few people for not bringing legit identity card. We were only middle school students. The only ID cards we had was student ID card, which was not really effective. However, I had the official military ID card issued from the base. Well, yes I eventually brought my friends to the base, entering with my ID cards for three of us.

Now, I do not need to go into the base to feel the air of the U.S. anymore, because I am in the U.S. now. However, I still sometimes want to go into the base. The base has its own features and interests that are not in the homeland. I heard that I cannot no longer enter the base even with the ID card. Actually, my father took all the cards away and destroyed. Now inside of the base only remains in my memory. But, I am sincerely looking forward to work part time job in the base or serve Korean Air Force in this U.S. Air Force base.
I will look forward to enter this place again where all of my childhood memories remain.
