Can somebody tell me where this is or what unit might have been there?

 Considering the unit of the photographer, it is probably C Btry 2/71 ADA, Those are HAWk Missiles
on the launcher. I have been on that site, located east of Pobwon-ni but it was a long time ago to be
positive. The other battery's in the battalion that this guy might have run into were on steeper
hillsides and A Btry was near Kimpo

 It does look like the Hawk Missile site that I served on in 1966-1967. Our site was south of Seoul
about 6 miles on a mountain top. We could see Seoul and the Imjin river bridge from our site. I am not
sure if this is the correct site.  My unit was Battery D, 7th Battalion, 2nd Artillery, 38th Brigade.

  It may be Bravo Battery 2/71 ADA, it is either that or Charley Battery.

  The picture looks a lot like the unit I served with C 2/71 ADA tac site.  Looks like it was taken at the y
in the road just down from the gate .

  I think I can agree with SSG Nutter...I was also at C Btry, and that looks somewhat like what I
remember from the road; it has been a long, long time, though.  B Btry was on a lower hill, D Btry had
a steep concrete slab at about the point up the road shown in the picture, and A Btry's site was up the
hill right behind the admin area; I walked it on occasion, and you're always looking at the front (north)
side of the site on the way up.  If this is, in fact, 2/71, I'd say it has to be C Btry.

  I was in C Btry 2/71st from 68-69.  It looks an awful lot like our site TAC 36 which was a few clicks
east of Pobwon-ni.  If so, the picture is a little deceiving in that it was taken near the top of the road
leading up and nowhere near the valley floor.  Keep in mind my recollection is 43 years old.

  With so many replies pointing to the same TAC Site,
We can now identify it as having been taken at the TAC Site 36, east of Pobwon-ni.
