Sgt. Christopher Bonebrake of Portland, Ore., Oregon Army National Guard, Combined Joint Task Force-1, aims to throw a wooden arrow during a game of Tuho, a traditional Korean folk game widely played by Korean royalty as far back as 37 B.C. The celebration, held on Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, Sept. 28, 2012, also kicked off the Oct. 1 Korean holiday of Korean Armed Forces Day - the fateful day during the Korean War when South Korean forces pushed through the 38th parallel. Service members from various contingents participated in the celebration, which offered traditional Korean games played during the Korean autumn festival of "Chuseok," as well as traditional Korean foods.
