I still kick myself for not PCSing to Germany in '95. I was deployed to Panama, Republic of, at the time and my orders to Germany were deleted. Of course, once I returned to the States, there were fresh orders for South Korea, Republic of. Anyone who has spent time in the 2nd Infantry Division's area of operation will know the driving conditions in northern South Korea were appalling. The Koreans have a fatalistic view of traffic laws and driving. Red lights mean blow your horn as you speed through; a two lane road is actually four (also with cars parked at the curbside); potholes big enough to break suspension components; and he who has the bigger vehicle has the right of way! How I managed to survive 20 months of patrolling in my Military Police SUV without being involved in an accident was beyond my comprehension. In the 2ID A.O., soldiers were forbidden to own personal vehicles. Too dangerous they said. I never saw any real motorcycles in Korea, only 50 -150cc scooters and mopeds.
