The phone number of the Girl Scouts of America Office on Yongsan Army
Garrison (unless it has changed recently) is 738-6131 (if you are dialing
from off of the installation, but still in Seoul, dial 7918-6131). They are
open Wed, Thurs, & Friday at the location suggested by Mike Walton (Bldg
4205 on the North Post of Yongsan AG). You can also have her talk to
Rosemary Martin. She's a Junior Leader (sorry, I don't know the cadette
leader's name). Her number is 736-8180 (or from off-post 7916-8180). On
Yongsan Army Garrison (South Post) there is a Scout Hut located adjacent to
the Chosun Gift Shop, and the telephone number is (if anyone is there)
738-6132 (or 7918-6132). Hope this helps.
