I guess all those books he read (to become an expert on warfare)
didn't tell him that NOBODY got to "choose" where they were
But it is true, isn't it, that you were so far to the rear that you were
in a different country from where the Korean conflict was taking place?
Of course. If Jimmie say it true, it must be true!
Japan was not DIRECTLY involved in the Korean WAR, true. The
Occupation was over when I was assigned there. Was I supposed
to break rules, go against the UCMJ, to go to the "front?"
The point being that you never served in a forward area, let alone
a combat area. Matter of fact, the only thing "forward" about you is
bad manners and a propensity to deceive.
The point is that a low-ranking Marine knew enough to call you out on
your military service lies.
