Utah Guardsmen Adopt Korean, 19

LOGAN, Utah (AP)- A Korean war orphan who was "adopted" by Utah National Guardsman from the Logan are has arrived here to begin his education at Utah State Agricultural College.

His arrival this week ended one phase of a long story which started in the early days of the Korean War.

Sedong Kim, 19, lost his parents in the initial Red invasion of South Korea. Units of the Utah National Guard from Logan, which were among the first to be sent to Korea, hired the boy to help in the military camp site for $10 a month and his food and lodging.

The National Guardsman at Logan decided to help and made a community project of it.
