This is a recounting of how C. Gilbert Lowery, a US Navy Hospital Corpsman, was assigned to a US Marine Corps Reconnaissance Patrol Team during covert missions in Korea. Pyonggang Airfield, Kaesong, Sariwon & more.
A formal & well told slice of military life out beyond the DMZ with plenty of technical, material & topographic details, & few philosophical detours or
anachronistic Monday morning quarterbacking. A look into other areas less known that those in the military perform regularly then and now. An engaging, gentlemanly read about brothers of a forgotten war.
