Last week I received one of those calls that instinct tells you will unleash an avalanche of meetings, ceremonies, dinners, speeches, and interviews. Not to mention international flights, rental cars, and hotel stays. After talking with a South Korean embassy official and being invited to Washington to attend ROK President Moon Jae-in’s speech at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on Wednesday, June 28th, I had a feeling I was in for an exciting few days.
I was right.
And as we used to say in the Marines, “Saddle up!"
Since last Monday, I’ve attended two ROK government ceremonies, made two speeches, met with military, government, and press officials, and interviewed Korean War veterans. It’s been non-stop action.
And now 6,600 miles later, I’m in Quantico, Virginia getting ready for Moon Jae-in’s speech.
