KEYWORDS: reserve; skorea; specialforce; training
Special Force Reserve training conducted on Apr. 24. The reserve is made up of all volunteers and to be deployed to counter the attack of N. Korean special force if hostility breaks out.

Some of them are obviously over 50 years of age.

Interesting story about Special Operations Command reserve forces taking people in their 50s or older.

My father-in-law, who is in his late eighties, is healthier than me and turning our back yard into a farm now that he lives in rural America and not high-rise condos in Seoul. Maybe kimchi not only gives people fiery tempers but also helps them stay strong later in life? ;-)

And bingo to American in Tokyo for his comment about not picking on inner-city Korean store owners in the United States. You never know what kind of firepower they have under their counter. Imagine how tough South Korea could be if they had a Second Amendment and those people could train on their own instead of just relying on government-issued weapons...
