This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice which technically ended the Korean War, though the US and ROK service members and South Korean civilians who lost their lives since the end of the Korean War on July 27, 1953 would beg to differ. There are still over 7,900 US service members […]
One of the highlights of the school year at the SolBridge International School of Business is the annual Multicultural Festival.

I normally don’t pat myself on the back for the photos I take, you know, let the photos speak for themselves (a picture’s worth a thousand words, that sort of thing) BUT this photo that I took during SolBridge International School of Business’s Spring 2013 Multicultural Festival, ROCKS!

Starting to feel like summer in Daejeon which means summer is just around the corner and the return of the Korean maemi (cicada). They are noisy little critters.
And I am in some great company. I know it’s only for a while (by now the book has probably slipped out of the Top Ten) but it was a good feeling while it lasted. I hope this exposure at the top of the charts will make more people interested in downloading a copy and […]

Reviews“In War Remains, Jeffrey Miller has penned a gripping story of the Korean War through the eyes and hearts of a soldier, his comrades in arms, and the family he left behind. Vivid and wrenching battle scenes provide counterpoint for the present-day search of a soldier's grandson for the grandfather he and his father never knew. With elegant and skillful prose, Miller brings home to the reader the chaos and terror of battle, the ache of loss, and the bittersweet cup of remembrance. This novel will give those three letters MIA new and deeper meaning to all who read it. In the end, War Remains is a deeply satisfying affirmation of the gratitude and regard due those who sacrificed so much in a war forgotten by too many.” - Steven Spruill, author of Ice Men
