Greetings Red State Librarian!


(Christmas in Korea 1987)

I was recently informed by the author of the Pho Manifesto that an Army comrade of ours and frequent heckler here, Red State Librarian, has an active blog going. It's bad enough I am getting tag teamed on El Duderino's blog by reactionaries in the guise of libertarians back east. Now we have another rightwinger from the Mid Atlantic section of the country. Welcome to the fray.

My friend, Worm (who's real name is Dennis)was stationed in korea a long time ago. He once said that bringing your girlfriend to Korea was about as pointless as bringing beer to Germany. Is that still accurate or is it safer to take the 5th?

I can assure all that the establishment pictured above was a cultural institution of the highest regard. If memory serves, Red State was accepting that nation's equivalent of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (pursuit to the third clause for cultural endeavors).

Korea was a hardship tour which means the military will not pay for your family to go with you. Still some of the lifers did bring wives and kept on off base apartment. Our specific assignment required spending a lot of time in the field sometimes for up to a month. That said it was a diffcult place to maintain a relationship unless it was with some of women we were stationed with. There were other distractions as well.

Red State was too much of a butterfly

Hey, thanks for posting the pic. It was Christmas 1987 and church services had just let out. I only stopped in for some eggnog. Keeping with the spirit of things, I have posted a a photo of Dexter on my own site.

Not a reactionary and not a libertarian either (although I am against the drug war).
