Since My phones camera doesn’t like low light situations, here’s the story behind this ubelieveably blurry photo.

So I was walking along, loooking for an adventure and enjoying the crisp pre-dawn air, and I saw these people doing a workout in the parking lot of the recreational center. So, I popped over and checked it out. I watched them for a second, then approached their instructor. His name is Julian Alcaraz, and he’s a pretty nice dude. He asked me to if I wanted to join them, so I did…for about 10 minutes. ^_~ Lets just say it’s been a LONG time since I’ve done any meaningful exercise.

Apparently they do this every day around 5:30 AM for about an hour. Monday through Firday. Thats intense. Still, I got his business card.

I’m not sure if I’d be able to keep up, but once my tuition money comes in, I’ll see if it fits in my budget.

***********************************************

Silly me: after the iPhone 3g had been out for a full week, I thought I could stroll right into the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue & 59th Street in mid-town Manhattan, and simply buy one without any muss, fuss, bother, or delay.

But when I arrived at 11 AM, I found a line of approximately 150 people waiting outside in the broiling sun, not seeming to move forward at all; it turned out that the Apple store "concierge" folks were letting them in in groups of ten, when the previous ten had been taken care of. When I asked the woman how long she had been waiting, she said, "Four hours" — she had arrived at 7 AM, having already determined that the AT&T stores were sold out throughout New Jersey and Connecticut.

Well, I’m a gadget freak and a Mac fan, but there’s a limit to my passion for such things; four hours was just too much. So instead, I decided to take a bunch of pictures of the people who were in the line. Of course, I have no idea whethere the people queued up in front of Apple stores in other cities (or at other stores here in NYC) are similar to this group … but I’m inclined to think that they are. And if that’s true, then the demographics of this group — in terms of age, gender, nationality, ethnic groups, etc. — is particularly intriguing. I saw only one guy dressed in a corporate uniform of suit and tie; Apple may be trying to break into the "enterprise" market, but that’s not who was standing in line for all those hours in the sun…

KATUSA program remains strong

By Walter Ham IV
Eighth Army Public Affairs

SEOUL — The Korean Augmentation to the United States Army, or KATUSA, program was initiated in July 1950 by an informal agreement between the South Korean President Rhee Syng-man and General of the Army Douglas MacArthur. Sixty years have passed since the agreement but the KATUSA program continues due to the commitment for freedom and democracy by both nations.

“Most Korean men choose to serve their mandatory military service as ROK Army Soldiers, while some choose to serve in the ROK Navy, Marines, or Air Force,” said 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command Republic of Korea Support Office commander Maj. Noh Gong-chool. “Yet others choose to apply to become a KATUSA and serve alongside U.S. Soldiers.”

Becoming a KATUSA is not easy though. It requires taking standardized English tests and most of all, luck.

“KATUSA applicants must score 780 or above out of 990 on the test of English for international communication, or over 690 out of 990 on the test of English proficiency developed by Seoul National University,” said Noh. “I know that students study hard to obtain these scores so they can apply to the program.”

A lottery is drawn from the qualified applicants with a competitive ratio of approximately 10.5 to 1. Once selected, each KATUSA trainee completes six weeks of ROK army basic training at Nonsan Training Academy and three weeks of KATUSA/U.S. training at the KATUSA Training Academy, or KTA, at Camp Jackson.

“We learn the basic military customs and courtesies at KTA,” said Pvt 2nd Class Nam Hyun-wook, 19th ESC G-1. “If Nonsan is about being a ROK soldier, KTA is about being a U.S. Soldier.”

During the last week at Camp Jackson, KATUSA trainees are classified into different method of services depending on their majors, English abilities and other certifications. After graduation, KATUSAs go to their respective Eighth Army units and start working alongside their peer Soldiers.

New KATUSAs normally come to a unit on a monthly basis. For two years, KATUSAs automatically rise in rank from private to sergeant.

“As a KATUSA, we need to understand both U.S. and ROK Army policies and cultures. For example, KATUSAs are automatically promoted but our American counterparts are not. We work, live and train with U.S. Soldiers, but we still abide by the basic rules of the ROK army,” said Cpl. Lee, Min-soo, 19th ESC Personal Administration Center. “We’re like hybrid soldiers, a mix of U.S. and ROK Army cultures.”

Lee believes that KATUSAs play a vital role in strengthening and maintaining the U.S.-ROK alliance.

“As KATUSAs, we represent South Korea by working hard and being on top of our games,” he said.

Most KATUSAs do not have battlefield experience, but like any U.S. Soldier, KATUSAs are willing to engage the enemy to protect their nation.

“Incentives or monetary compensation are unnecessary in the urge to defend our nation,” Noh said.
