All Americans that have stood by and let this happen without voicing concerns years ago are to be ashamed.

It's not that uncommon for Marines on IRR to be recalled into active duty weather or not there is war. I knew plenty of guys that had been recalled when I was in.
But I'll throw this on the fire....A lady in one of my classes whose husband is stationed here at Kaneohe Bay told me the other day that her husband said there is lots of talk about Korea on base right now, and he said something big is about to happen. No more info than that. Take it with a grain of salt, but I'm paying attention to anything having to do with "Marines" and "Korea" for the moment.

You are correct... very little information, and he's basically clammed up. In my own observations, he acclimated to civilian life quite nicely, was settling down, and set up permanent roots. If his contract allowed for recall at any time, I guess that is just poor planning on his part. In addition, he hasn't quit yet, just put in notice that he's done prior to reporting to WV in May. Essentially it's two or three weeks, as he needs to get his household and family in order, but sudden and rapid.
