This essay traces the life of Kim Chun Cha from her birth in Japanese occupied Korea through the savageness of the Korean War; her father’s death six months after the subsequent cease-fire; her abandonment by the pitiless father of her first child; and her subsequent marriage and life with the author and the Christian faith that carried her through it all.
There was a darkly lighter side to military service during the Cold War, one seldom shared; hidden from the great majority of Americans. Yes, soldiers served honorably then as now, and they did do their duty and more, but there is more to it than that.
Punchy Company tells the tale with refreshingly candid revelations; shares their day-to-day lifestyle while serving in what was then a more remote South Korea. Recounted with directness, feeling and truth, the author addresses, head-on, the simple realities of soldierly behavior, both on and off duty, how it disregarded those common behavioral guardrails more scrupulously observed at home. With a frankness elsewhere unavailable, the tale is told just as it happened.
