Jae Kwon on Getting Used to Military Life

StoryCorps was back in Austin in November, recording the stories of Central Texas veterans as part of their Military Voices Initiative.

Jae Kwon recently shared his story with StoryCorps facilitator Sylvie Lubow. Jae joined the navy after high school and became a hospital corpsman, a job better known to many as “medic.” He was stationed to 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, an infantry battalion, and was sent with them to Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004.  

This piece was produced for KUT by Michael Lee with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.
