This morning we had an informative conversation with Congressman Tom MacArthur, recently back from a diplomatic trip to South Korea.

He described his almost surreal experience at the DMZ as North Korean Troops peered through windows in the building he occupied. He also mentioned that the highest number of fallen heroes from the Korean war are from New Jersey.

The conversation got personal as I mentioned that my father-in-law Sal Lombardi served in the U.S. Army in Korea and the Congressman mentioned his adopted kids who are from the country.
