Tsushima Strait

1950.  Enroute to Korea.  Over 50 percent of the U.S. Army troops committed to Korea during the summer of 1950 were age 19 or less.  These boys elected to stay on deck of the cargo ship that took them for a 15-hour cruise across the Tsushima Strait from Sasebo, the Kyushu (southern Japan) port.  They had no clue what awaited them in the Land of the Morning Calm.
