Growing up poor in Middle America in the 1950s didn't give much opportunity for a boy to learn about different cultures. But a stint in the Navy opened up an entirely new vista for Richard. This is a personal story of a young man who traveled to the Far East and found love - love for a woman and love for a land, Korea, that was very different from the place he grew up. Separated by distance, a language barrier, and a lack of money, the author describes how he was able to overcome these obstacles and marry the girl that he loved. Following his marriage he went to work for the U.S. Army and returned to Korea three times over a thirty year career. In describing that career, the author offers an historical perspective on the political, social, and economic changes that have taken place in Korea and America since the Korean War, and provides some insights into their meaning for America and Korean relations.
