In 1996 I arrived in the Republic of South Korea for the first time. I was maybe twenty-five years old. Before then the only place I had been outside of the United States was Mexico, which I’m not sure that ever counts. Korea was a whole new world for me, and I was excited about it. I spent two New Years Eves there. Just a little history to get us started.

This being the inaugural post, I just want to give you a brief history of my life before the army and a basic outline of my years in service. This way we have an excellent base on who I am and how the hell I ended up in the Army. I was born in Chicago, Illinois in the early ‘70s. My parents divorced when I was young and both remarried once or twice.
