The Rest of the Story
BOB LUDENS arrived in Korea for his tour of duty in 1952. Because of the static nature of the war at that time, Bob got a chance to see and experience the Korean culture. The American cooks had trouble with the local hungry children stealing food from the mess area. The adjacent companion South Korean allied army had less of a problem because of the way they handled it. When the South Korean cooks caught local hungry children stealing from the mess area, their throats were cut and they were hung by the legs from the camp gate for everyone to see to persuade others from trying the same thing.
