The opposing side would bear the photograph and signature of the soldier. Upon opening the inside flap, the full inside reveals two additional languages, in the center it reads: "AMERICAN TEXT" and below: "THE BEARER OF THIS PASS IS AN AMERICAN AIRMAN. HE IS FRIENDLY TOWARD YOU. HELP HIM TO RETURN TO AMERICAN OR SOUTH KOREAN FORCES AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED". The final section reads: "KOREAN TEXT" at the top followed by the passage in Korean.
