At right is a photo with COLONEL LEE and ME, when COLONEL LEE hosted lunch on July 10, 2019 in a Korean Restaurant at the FORT in BGC by way of his bidding farewell following his one-year stint of service as such military attache to our country.]
Colonel LEE loves SOCCER and HIKING…
Those are his INTERESTS, and that’s INVIGORATING;
And SOCCER indeed increases MUSCLE and BONE STRENGTH,
That’s why Colonel LEE works so hard with much INTENSE!
Colonel LEE loves much HIKING TOO…
And it totally improves one’s MOOD though it’s tiring… WHEW!
That’s perhaps why Colonel LEE is so AMIABLE,
He always has a twinkled smile and is truly LIKEABLE!
As a SCORPION PERSON, that’s your ZODIAC SIGN…
You are considered as truly INTELLIGENT and so AGILE;
You are also deemed as a DIGNIFIED PERSON,
You can even pass as a true PIOUS PARSON!
He started his military stint in March NINETEEN NINETY ONE,
And at the NAVAL ACADEMY, TRUTH was their BECKON;
As SECOND LIEUTENANT, he has espoused POSITIVE LEADERSHIP,
That’s his aspiration as he cares for his buddies like KINSHIP!
With his hard work, he was commended by the South Korean Marine CORPS…
He received thus a COMMENDATION, for working with much FERVOR;
Another COMMENDATION was from SOKOR’s Joint Chiefs of STAFF,
Colonel LEE is really TOUGH and has always landed on TOP!
His leadership begun as company leader of the MARINE BRIGADE,
And was successively promoted for the talents he DISPLAYED…
Rose to the rank of COLONEL in TWO THOUSAND AND TEN,
He is indeed unique and am sure he’ll reach the TOP HELM!
For the assistance and aid that you’ve given our KOREAN WAR VETS,
We are truly thankful and we’ll consider them as DEBTS;
For in our country, we speak of a DEBT OF GRATITUDE…
For SOKOR’s fight for FREEDOM, we’ll support with VIM and FORTITUDE!
