Story 182
Peter Jennings - While stationed in Korea in 1989, I was with a small group of GIs on our way to tour the Demilitarized Zone. We had stopped at a small mall along the way. While standing in the parking lot, 2 cars pulled up wih "ABC News" signs on the side. Several people stepped out, including Peter Jennings, who was there to interview a South Korean general. One of the guys yelled, "Mr. Jennings can we take your picture?" He said "Why don't we get a group shot?" He gathered us around him and posed for several pictures. He shook each of our hands and asked us a little about ourselves. The encounter lasted 3 or 4 wonderful minutes, but then his crew emerged from the mall with the general. Mr. Jennings thanked us for our service to our country and apologized for having to leave so soon. We watched them drive away as he waved goodbye to us. I still have (and treasure) those pictures we took with him that day. What a terrific guy!
