Previous post here. In this photograph, one of them is being escorted by a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and a South Korean First Lieutenant — without the use of a Baby Bjorn, which is not authorized with the uniform. He looks thrilled to be on his way home, which is what you’d expect for a guy found adrift and near death on a raft in the Sea of Japan in December.
I’m sad that our Army had any part in this dubious transfer, notwithstanding the obvious value of the photo op.
