(Korean history) Korean war photographs in Ohmynews

A reporter writing for Ohmynews has been visiting US, and he's been to the National Archives and Records Administration to dig up some photographs from the Korean War. I don't know if these have been published elsewhere because I haven't been reading much of that war, but at least for me they are new. There are now five pages (one, two, three, four, five) of pictures. I have linked below one picture from each page. The Korean texts are copied from the article, with some English added by me.

1950. 11. 2. 거리에 버려진 아이들이 트럭에 실려 고아원으로 가고 있다. 눈망울이 초롱한 아이는 그 후 어떻게 되었을까? (Abandoned children being taken to an orphanage)ⓒ2004 미국 문서기록보관청

1950. 7. 29. 마을 소년들이 주먹밥을 만들어 군인들에게 나눠주고 있다 (Village youngsters giving rice to soldiers.)ⓒ2004 미국 문서기록보관청

1950. 7. 29. 경남 진주 부근에서 생포한 빨치산(?). 원문은 포로로 되어 있다. (Capturing partisans [?] near Jinju, Gyeongnam.)ⓒ2004 미국국립문서기록보관청

1951. 1. 5. 한미 합작의 한국군 병사 장비. 신발, 겉옷 , 모자 : 한국제. 코트, 소총, 탄환 : 미제 (Korean-made shoes, coat, and hat; US-made coat, rifle, and ammunition.)

1951. 5. 28. 38선 부근 6마일 남쪽 마을에서 탱크의 포화소리에 귀를 막는 소년들. 이들의 누더기 바지 차림이 그 무렵 소년들의 대표적 옷차림이다. (Tank firing near the 38th parallel. The boys' rag pants were typical for that time.)ⓒ2004 미국국립문서기록보관청
