Backs Appeal for Adoptions


AN NYUNG HA SHIP NEKA - Col. Kenneth I. Curtis, Commanding Officer, Det R KMAG, speaks, in Korean, to an assembled group of orphans and their prospective parents at the Taegu Girl's Middle School on January 19.  Nearly 125 orphans were adopted in a mass ceremony, by benevolent Koreans through Kyong-san,  Bukto province.  The Korean Red Cross initiated the appeal and this ceremony was the first result of the program.
