US officials recently announced that American troops will be withdrawn from the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, that narrow strip of land that separates North and South Korea. The troops will be repositioned south about 75 miles to 'hub bases'. 50 years ago in July, an armistice was signed which led to a cease fire in the Korean War. WNYC's Judith Kampfner visited South Korea recently. Her path to the DMZ starts in Brooklyn Heights.
