Shin's Visit to Seoul hosted by

ROK/US Marine Corps Friendship Association


I should make this into a better page, but this is just a information distribution.... I have been so busy lately. I still have photos from ROKMC B-day visit that I have not cut or sized well or finalized the webpage for... You can see that visit at this link.

Today we picked up Shin and gang in a ROKMC 9 passanger van with lights. She road the bus into town and had a direct ride they said. (SAT TRAFFIC is so bad because Koreans get off work at apx 1400 hrs and the roads are clogged.  The busses have priority lanes. I thought she was going to do a train, but bus was direct for them.)

We took her to the ROKMC museum. We presented her a plaque from both US and ROK Directors of the ROK/US Marine Friendship Asso. We did that in the CMC Seoul Office. Then took her to a fish restaurant. She did not seem to want to eat the live moving octopus. (See photo at restaurant.) I think she went away full. We took her back to Mr. Kang's Office. She received some presents from ROKMC and something for you. Her friend with a USMC son, also received a gift. Then she hopped bus back to her area. Good time was had by all.

I think she enjoyed it.

We treated Shin right... by Korean standards, we even got her live cut octopus...still wiggling. Plus she got the Gold drink.
