SEOUL (KMAG)-The man with the longest service in
the Provost Marshal Advisory Section of the U.S. Military Advisory Group
to the Republic of Korea is an 18 year old Korean youth named Seo Duk
Soo. The boy, better known as "Skoshi", started working in the office
of the KMAG PM advisor by accident six years ago. An orphan, he was
driven from his home in the village of Kyun-Buk when the North Koreans
invaded in 1950. He was found by ROK MP Patrol and put to work in the
office of the ROK Provost Marshal General.
A KMAG PM ADVISOR "took the boy under his wing" and
got him a job in his office. Members of the KMAG section took up collections
to send Skoshi to school, first in Taegu, then in Seoul when KMAG headquarters
Now Skoshi is scheduled to attend Chong Chi College
on funds collected by the PM advisory section.
