Chapter 10 of the book Memoir
one hundred word nonfiction
"Christmas in Korea" by Bill Schott



In December of 1978, my company was training in the DMZ in South Korea.

It was sad to be deployed and as far from Christmas as a butt hole from the heart.

Trying to raise the mood, I chopped down a five-foot cedar tree and decorated it with empty soda cans and hemp twine. The general funk dissipated.

Soon though, a liaison from headquarters appeared to inform us that the trees in this area had been planted by the government; all were numbered and protected. A thousand-dollar fine was collected from the unit by the commanding officer. The funk returned.
