Back in the spring of 1988, at the behest of Uncle Sam, I shipped out to Korea. I spent the next 2½ years in the 2nd Infantry Division; I have a lot of memories — some bad, most good — about those years.
I’ve no idea what brought this particular memory to mind….
Of my 2½ years in Korea, I spent about a year living under canvas or in holes in the ground up near the DMZ. As one might expect, the prospect of eventually getting a weekend pass was near and dear to my heart, as it was to everyone’s. The goal was nearly always to spend a weekend in the capitol city, Seoul.
And for some reason, this song always ran through my head:thumb
(Seoul City — get it?)
I may just be the only person I know who remembers that song. At least I remember it fondly.
