Coming Back

Coming Back — In September of ’71 we were returning to the U.S. after spending a year in Korea in the U.S.A.F. We landed at SeaTac around noon and a group of us wanting to get to the East Coast found out we’d have to wait till that evening to catch flights going that far. We had all heard the stories of the poor reception soldiers coming back from Asia had been getting and we were all apprehensive because we were in uniform. We walked into a bar in the airport and were stunned. We got a rousing reception from the folks there, our money was no good, and the cold beer we drank never tasted better.
