A-Frame

The USAF interdiction campaign struck targets as large as trains or as small as single communist soldiers with A-frame backpacks. Used as an effective means of transportation in Korea for centuries, the A-frame allowed its bearer to carry a tremendous load.

Lt. Robert C. Mikesh acquired the A-frame backpack on display during his tour in Korea in 1951-1952.
