Freedom Pagoda

Description

A soldier discovers the cost of honor at the truce village of Panmunjom on the border of North Korea. An accurate day-by-day portrayal of what it was like to serve in an elite hand-picked force at Panmunjom in the 1970's. Freedom Pagoda is a story of bar girls and seedy nightclubs, perversion and taking advantage in a foreign country, of race hatred and intolerance. Tensions between American and North Korean fanatic soldiers existing in a decades-old winless military stalemate flare up. At Panmunjom the combat is face-to-face and hand-to-hand. Based on real events.

Reviews:

M.Valdez

Freedom Pagoda delivers the inside view of a young man's life inside the military, serving in a foreign country, and facing the challenges of life and love for the first time. While it gives you a good look inside the military and political workings of warring parties, it also is reflective of one man's life that is touching, raw and real. It's a boy becomes a man story that will leave you wondering when the sequel will be available.

Jim Mazour: I recommend this book to all JSA veterans. It will bring back lots of memories, especially for those who served in the unit during the early 1970's time period.

Latest Poem

I was alone

when I went searching

   for your face

in all the crowded bars

where love hides out

under an assumed name.

           

There were many other faces

decorated with whiskey smiles

   and anxious lips

ready to whisper

anything I wanted to hear

but never telling me

what I really

   needed to know.

 

Why do those faces

always look so desirable

   at night

and so terribly lonely

when the morning sun

invades my one-room world

and splashes across

   the tumbled bed?

 

I didn't know your name

   then

or even what you looked like.

But I recognized you

by the sadness

in your eyes.

   Or was it

the reflection

of my own

lonely stare?

(Excerpt from the “Sadness of Happy Times” by Lou Duro: www.louduro.com)
