FUCHU AS, Japan (OIS)-The first Air Force couple
to fly to Korea together under a new "free transportation ruling to
adopt a Korean child have completed procedures to adopt five year
old Cho Eun Yung.
T/Sgt. and Mrs. Lindsey J. Sammon were the first
to take advantage of special orders by General L.L. Lemnitzer, UNC/FEC
commander, which authorized military personnel travel to and from
Korea to adopt an orphan. The couple renamed Cho "Timothy" and report
the youngster is rapidly taking to western ways.
THE SAMMONS went to Korea in July and visited several
orphanages before choosing Tim. Tim couldn't speak a word of English
when they met him but he is catching up quickly.
Next to eating, Tim likes new clothes and toys.
But best of all, he likes his new name.
