Dear Brian,

There is an interesting documentary, "Black Sergeant Kim returning
from Vietnam"(no.77, 2004) in "I can say now (Ijeneun Malhalsu Itda)"
series, produced by MBC in South Korea, for which I was an adviser.
According to interviews in the documentary, most of the Korean
soldiers in Vietnam were not volunteers, but were forcefully mobilized
in combat units. Of course, there were volunteers in Korean combat
divisions in Vietnam. I do not have any statistics, unfortunately.


Tae Gyun Park.
