What’s important to remember, after all is said and done, are the many thousands of people who touched the face of South Korea including: the citizens of the communities who donated clothing; the students and faculty at the universities who collected, sorted, boxed and provided financial help; the transportation companies who donated their trucks and railroad cars; and especially the soldiers, both American and Korean, who distributed the clothing throughout the country for a decade.

Waves of Deja Vu transporting us to the 70’s, Thanksgiving in Korea

Contributor: Betty Krause

It was back in the 70’s in Korea…..it was snowing a LOT……Korean family from the little village area on the beach-this was the early 70’s, told us to come inside their home! We spent the night or two with them……Will we ever know who these people were? Do they remember that special time?…..We regret that we didn’t have room for the camera on this trip…….Thanking my lucky stars each and every day
