What Was Going On?
Oh, we had newscasts from AFRTS or AFNT, and of course there was always the Stars and Stripes newspaper. But those certainly didn't compare to today's 24-hour news coverage, television programming and movies that are available to most of today's troops.
There's a fascinating website called Infoplease.com that bills itself as a combination encyclopedia, almanac, atlas. biography, dictionary, thesaurus, and all-around reference source. One of the features is a year-by-year review of noteworthy events from 1900 to the present. If you'd like to catch up with what was going on in the world during your years in Taiwan, you can visit that portion of the site HERE.
