Lt. Col. Edward Taylor stands behind a wall of sandbags overlooking the North Korean landscape and a bank of trees along the most fortified border in the world. The trees obstruct the view, he explains. They need to come down. But this is the DMZ.
"We don't know what is going to happen in the next month or two months," said Lt. Col. David Rayman, commander of the 25th Fighter Squadron at Osan Air Base, 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the border. "We are always exercising. We're training to the worst-case scenario."
"The biggest unique thing is that if anything happens here it's going to be what we would term a major combat operation — it's not irregular warfare, it's not counterinsurgency," Rayman said. "The big deal is that if something happens here, it's going to be a big fight."
