Sgt. Kojo Acquaye


Our Question: As you know, summer is considered pretty much over and just nine days from now it’ll officially be fall. Before you came to Korea had you heard anything about its summer weather? If so, what had you heard, and now that the summer’s about done, how did it compare with what you’d expected?

“My experience with the summer in Korea was way hotter and humid as compared to the stateside. I was actually born in Africa, I felt like it was even way hotter than Africa. I don’t know what to expect for the fall and after fall, but I am looking forward to fall and winter. The summer for this year was pretty hot. Hydration was the most key thing. Always have the water available all the times.”
