Ulsan traveler writes on Korean trip

Jackie Walden, Ph.D., wrote a moving article about a recent trip to Portland's sister city, Ulsan, South Korea. Ulsan's Mayor Bak invited six US veterans of the Korean War to travel to Ulsan for a week to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Amistice and to thank the veterans for their service. Dr. Walden's companion, Drury Wood, was one of the six veterans invited to Ulsan. Another of the veterans, Hollis Hess, was joined by his wife Shirley. The other four veterans were Bruce Pence, Bruce Wickward, Arthur Hull, and Al Pule. Click on the jpeg to read Dr. Walden's report.
