Overview

Four women of diverse backgrounds form a bond while en route to join their Army officer husbands in Korea in 1946.

Their experiences in a far-flung military compound strengthen three of the women, but a fourth chooses to end her life there, and during a reunion twenty-five years later, long-held dark secrets and sorrows are revealed.

The Women of Camp Sobingo shares the story of four women; friends who share the life of army wives in a strange land, with husbands who serve. Raising children, making do, enduring hardships, these women survive - all but one...

There really was a Camp Sobingo, located outside the capitol city of Seoul, South Korea at the end of WWII. This military compound's cookie-cutter "quarters" was home to the women and children who joined their Army officer husbands during the US Occupation.

The camp had a school, a post exchange, a dispensary, a commissary, and even a movie theatre (think "MASH"). Ever-present, however, was the military presence, both Korean and our own US forces and the tyranny of the Russians located across the 38th parallel, who merely annoyed the dependents with their random denial of electricity to the American contingent.

Most of the Americans had deployed to other assignments before June 25, 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea. Those remaining escaped safely, but "The Land of the Morning Calm" would never be the same.
