当時の米軍従事者の証言

A sad article of a sad time in Korea. Yes, the women were enslaved in very much the same way that
Japan’s comfort women were enslaved, which was that they were enslaved by the use of debt and deception.

I was in the US navy stationed at Camp Humpheys, near Pyeongtaek, from 1977 to 1979. I was quite
an active barhopper and whoremonger at the time and knew a lot of the women who worked in the
ten or so large clubs outside the gates of Camp Humpheys. Here is what I remember:

Many of the girls at that time told me they were lured to the bars by ads in Korean magazines promising
high-paying jobs as waitresses in military clubs. I read the magazine ads, myself.

The girls were also promised furnished apartments, which was how the girls became enslaved to their
pimps, because, in addition to their rent, the girls were expected to make payments on the apartment
furniture at exorbitant interest rates. I do not know if the clubowners and pimps explained interest rates
to the girls or not, but I doubt that many did, and even if they did, I doubt that many of the girls knew
what they were getting themselves into. At the time, many of the girls were literally right off the farm
and were illiterate.

The girl’s salaries were not enough to pay all their expenses, so the girls had to start selling their bodies
just to keep their heads above water. They could not walk or run away from their debt because the pimps
and the police would hunt them down and bring them back after giving them a nice little beating.

The police, storeowners, and even other bargirls in the camptown were the watch dogs for the pimps, so it
was hard for the girls to simply slip out of town. Even when the new girls went to one of the local bathhouses,
they had to go with one of the pimp’s trusted girls to help make sure the girl did not run away.

Essentially, the only young women allowed in town were prostitutes and schoolgirls, and you could easily
tell them apart because the schoolgirls had to wear uniforms.

If the police spotted a woman on the street they did not recognize, and she was not wearing a school uniform,
they would stop her and demand that she show them her VD Card, which was a record of the woman’s visits
to the veneral disease clinic. If you were a young woman in the village outside Camp Humphey’s, you either
had to have a VD Card or a school ID showing that you attended one of the local schools. If you did not have
a VD card or a school ID, you were taken to the local police station, which was a place the girls did not want
to go because they were often abused there.

In other words, the only Korean women the American military were allowed to associate with in the village
outside Camp Humphey’s were prostitutes. If a Korean girlfriend from Seoul visited you and she did not have
a VD card, she would be hauled off to the police station and you would not be allowed to go with her.

US military police patroled with Korean military police, but I never saw them taking girls out of the clubs. I think
they were only patroling to make sure there were no fights. I am not sure, but I think it was the plain clothes
police who did all the dirty work.

I remember hearing about the “Monkey House,” which was basically a jail where the girls were treated for VD.
I also heard it was not a pleasant place.
Korea was a whoremonger’s heaven in the 1970s and ’80s thanks to government-sponored, debt-based sexual
slavery.

Yes, Koreans who complain about Japan’s World War II “comfort woman” system while ignoring their own
“comfort woman” systerm are hypocrites.
