YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea — The 6 p.m. services at Southwest Chapel will collect a special offering Sunday to help the Pearl S. Buck International group in Seoul.

The group helps Amerasian children, kids who have Korean mothers and American military fathers. The children live throughout South Korea with their mothers, who often have little education and few work skills.

Capt. Brian P. Crane with the 301st Signal Battalion, who is a chaplain, is helping to organize the collection.

“These are the ones we should really take care of,” Crane said. “These kids are half-American.”

Crane said it would be the first collection for the group during the 6 p.m. services. Crane also has helped the children during an annual rice drive in early fall run by the 524th Military Intelligence Battalion.
