WuiT #013: Andy Wolfer

Download this interview

Many years ago, Mr. Gary Wolfer once served in the US Air Force and was stationed in Taichung; the central region of Taiwan. Now his son Andy (left) has been living in for almost seven years. He teaches kindergarten in Taipei, and this photo was taken last summer when the Wolfers visited Danshuei, a very well known travel attraction that is packed full of history. We hope you enjoy Taiwan like the Wolfers did.

Andy(照片中左)來自紐澤西,在美國交了一位台灣女友後,便來台灣教英文並且定居,這是我們做了許多採訪後,認為最典型的“美國人來台灣”的故事之一;不過Andy的父親,年輕時服役於美國空軍,曾經駐防過台中的清泉崗機場,一家人與台灣都有緣份。Andy認為他在家鄉被認為優點的一些禮貌,例如幫女士服務,在台灣似乎不太受到歡迎。

Hah, being in the US Air Force, white and stationed in Taichung, the Las Vegas of Taiwan and banging all taiwanese chicks like you don't care...

I'm sure the boy couldnt resist to step in his fathers shoes.

Enjoy Mr. Wolfer.

I've been searching for my old USAF buddies, Bill Bennett & Gary Wolfer stationed at CCKAFB in the mid 60's for years. My name is Bill Mladenka and I live in Freeport, Tx. If you're the same Gary Wolfer, email me at bilkattxhotlx@webtv.net. If not, sorry I bothered you. If Bill Bennett reads this by some weird chance, email me!
