Where Are You From?

[14]
Posted: Jun 15, 2018 4:41 PM
 

This AM I attended a special program at the Korean War Memorial in Greenville. Hannah Kim, a lady with a mission. was their to lay a wreath and thank all of those who served during the Koran War. She presented each one of us with a beautiful pin, a hug and a kiss. I returned to the line several times, not for the pin, but for the hug and kiss.


Most of you know I am a WW2 and Koran War vet and, contrary to what some of my friends would have you believe, I did not serve during WW1. With all of that aside, while sitting there during the program, one of my numerous memories surged to the front. The only reason I can think of was because it does have a connection to South Korea.


In 1992-93 I served as a consultant to the Cotton Export Corp. in Pakistan. The other engineer was also a Korean War veteran. Our headquarters was in Karachi and near the hotel, which was our home away from home, was a Korean restaurant. One evening we decided to visit the restaurant. Sitting in the restaurant enjoying our meal, we related some of our stories about the war. At the cash register was a young man whom we assumed owned the restaurant. We decided to ask him when we were checking out if he and his family had come from Korea to Karachi.


Well, we asked him if had come from South Korea. In very perfect English he responded, "no, I came from Toledo, Ohio". We had a big laugh and then he explained that he had remained in the states after finishing college and was in Karachi visiting his parents who owned the restaurant. He was helping his parents but said they had come from Seoul, South Korea, and had been in Karachi many years.

So, when you ask someone from whence they came, don't be surprised if they say. "I'm from Timbucktoo" you all".

I'll have to be more careful in the future re the title or subject of my posts. Any of you guys from Toledo? That's Toledo, Ohio, not Spain. I hope (there, their, they're) is no other Toledo.

Horror or horrors !!! On the second line in my post I have "their" instead of "there". I hereby announce the following self imposed penalty---- I promise to continue to make numerous mistakes in spelling, sentence structure, dangling participles, past tense when present or future tense is intended, intermingled nouns, verbs, adjectives & adverbs and definitely a lot of confusion.


Where am I from? About 75 miles behind the post office in Jacksonville, FL

Asking for a friend. But seriously, thanks for your service Joe. Sounds like you had some lipstick to wash off based on your multiple runs through the line. I am from Hampton, VA and moved to Savannah, GA after college where I married a remarkable UGA Bulldawg, raised two kids, and have worked for Gulfstream Aero many years. Sounds

Reminds me of a scene from an old TV show:

First lady asks, "Where are you from?"

2nd snooty lady says, "I am from a place where we put an object behind the preposition."

First lady responds, "OK. Where are you from b*tch?"
