Our second guests are Author Mark Heathco Call Sign Purple Three and his agent  Alfredo Garcia. Al helped Mark with marketing the book as both know what it is like and the dangers in serving on the DMZ in Korea. Mark and Al both served in the Army and were on the front lines in Korea.  With threats of North Korea threatening a Nuclear Holocaust this book will give the reader a true understanding to the dangers that are Military deals with everyday in serving at the DMZ in Korea.

Although a cease-fire agreement was signed in Panmunjeom on July 27, 1953, fighting between North and South Korea never stopped. The hot war was replaced by a low-intensity war. Terrorism, assassinations, infiltration of spies, and the like replaced tank battles and artillery duels. Until 1993, the United States patrolled its sector of the DMZ (demilitarized zone) in South Korea. In Call Sign: Purple Three, author Mark Heathco, who pulled 385 missions inside the DMZ during his military career, describes the preparation for a dangerous patrol in August 1985. This memoir follows the soldiers as they arrive at Warrior Base, refit for war, move to the tent area, prep their gear, receive a patrol operations order, study the patrol information, rehearse, undergo inspection, and finally execute the patrol itself. They encounter many dangers and obstacles-even a North Korean or two-as well as navigating the minefields that lace the patrol sector. With great detail, Call Sign: Purple Three provides keen insight into the Korean DMZ at a time when the world thought all was well in Korea, but in reality chaos was just a hair trigger away. This insider’s memoir offers an understanding of what these soldiers did and the sacrifices they made.
