just how the heck to you deal with this level of jet lag, 12 hours whew!!!
But BOT Korea was a very clean and beautiful country full of polite English speaking people that are very grateful for the sacrifice of the over 30,000 Americans that gave their life to free them from the north (the DMZ was there and that is one scary place)! and for our freeing them from the Japanese in WWII again some real bad ass oppressors. They of coarse have their left wing vocal minority that hates all things American and that is the point of the tour we went on.

Korea has a rail / subway high speed transit system that any city in our county when be envious of, fast clean and efficient. when my brain gets back in gear I will post some photos of the trip, (I took over 3,000). Soul is a large very modern LA class city but unlike LA it is very clean with no grafitti or street gangs in evidence anywhere.

At first if felt absolutely naked with out my gun, knife or OCS, but apparently this country with close to a 0% unemployment rate has a very low tolerance for crime of any kind and actually treat criminals like criminals so badly that repeat offense is a very low problem, and the streets are very safe to walk at all hours.
 

Glad you're home safe & sound.

I recall when I left S. Korea for Frankfurt Germany. I left Seoul at exactly 12:05pm on 28 August 1989, and I arrived in Frankfurt after more than 25 hours in the air at exactly Noon on 28 August 1989!

25+ hours in the air to go backward in time 5 minutes... that jet lag kicked my butt for a few days.
 
Spent four tours in Korea myself. Glad to see you got out and saw the country and didn't become a barracks rat. Welcome back.

Sheldon glad your back safe and sound. Are you in the military or just visiting? I just got back myself Monday the 16th and I am all screwed up. I am a civilian who works for the US Navy and Her allies. I was doing some work on one of the ships when i heard the news about the conflict metween the 2 Koreas. I went back to Seoul Saturday before we left and wanted to do the DMZ tour and was talked out of it by one of the S. Korean sailors and then the missle swap between the 2 Koreas. Needless to say that ended my urge to visit the DMZ. My father was in the Korean war and he was dropped off there and wanted to see it.
 
Nope my daughter is though we went on a good will tour n visit partly sponsored by the Korean government. On the OH S### side my daughter was snagged to stand on stage behind BHO when he visited Dragon Lodge, yeah she did not vote for him but it is still a honor to be by your commander n chief...

edit just found this photo of the incident.....

I left Berlin in May, and was thinking how we 'just missed' seeing each other when I passed through Frankfurt on the way out, but then I realized I'd actually left in '69!! Man, I'm getting to be one old sumbitch!!

Opinions, in this case, vary.
