At 9:30 Vice President Pence's blackhawk emerged from the gloomy skies above Camp Bonifas, South Korea -- a gateway to the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.
The VP is making an unnanouced visit to the DMZ this morning.
The landing zone is a baseball field -- inside the ROK-US-UN base -- that is dotted with an odd ensemble of bleachers, flags, windsocks and mortar pits.
The base is named after one of two soldiers who were killed in 1976 when the Korean People's Army took issue with the pruning of a poplar tree near its guard post.
Note --Your pool was preset at Camp Bonifas to witness the arrival. We missed a VPOTUS Embassy meet-and-greet to be there. Our pool motorcade, sans VPOTUS took an hour and a half from Seoul, following the path of the Han River. A smattering of barbed wire and raised sentry posts on the outskirts of Seoul became more heavy duty and more frequent as we approached the border.
We will be moving shortly inside the DMZ.
