    rps20200606_132731_565.jpg Hello from Seoul, Korea. Not military, but am a Glock 19 gen4 owner, originally from Iowa.

    I have my CCW for that 1 month a year when I return home. Sadly cannot come home this summer, due to the Wu-flu.

    Nice to be here.

    Well, the rules here make it tough. If I leave Korea without pre-approval, I am subject to loss of visa.

    In any case I must pay for a rapid test proving I am clean before being allowed back into Korea, and I still must quarantine for 2 weeks once I get here.

    They really discourage you from leaving the country and attempting to come back, at this point.

    Howdy from SE Iowa. I was in Seoul the summer of 1987. We landed in Inchon and after a short security detail, we were granted 5 days of basket leave. I was a Marine on detail to the USS Blue Ridge. We had a great time there!

    Hi.
    Thanks for the kind note. I arrived in 2002. Amazing changes, since then.

    Thanks for your service!
