Jason had the opportunity over his weekend to make a trek to an area that many are at least aware of, though it remains shrouded in mystery for most Americans from my generation and younger.
Jason left his base on Friday for the one-hour drive to Daegu, South Korea.
There, he and a few other military members boarded the bullet-train to Seoul, South Korea.
The train ride was approximately 4 hours long.
On arriving in Seoul, they were able to check into an Army Inn, and go out for dinner.
The next day was spent on a tour of the Demilitarized Zone [DMZ], the stretch of no-man's-land between North and South Korea.
The pictures below were from his trip.
