Here are two photographs showing the 196th Field Artillery Battalion's helicopter pad. The ridge in the background contained the Kansas Line, a secondary defense line in case the North Koreans and Chinese broke through the front line. Minefields covered the hills leading to the ridge. These photographs were taken by Frank Darrell Timken of Cimarron, Kansas after the armistice was signed.
