Abstract : Military transcultural marriages have occurred since the United States (U.S. or US) first established military installations overseas. It is estimated that such worldwide military operations have produced over one-half million transcultural unions between American servicemen and foreign nationals. One of the most active patterns of such marriages appears to be the Korean-American transcultural marriage which has steadily increased to over 60,000 marriages with an annual rate of approximately 3,000 marriages of this type. One of the major purposes of the TRITON study was to develop a handbook to be utilized by chaplains toward a more effective ministry to Korean-American transcultural couples. As a result, this handbook has been designed based on the findings of the TRITON effort with a particular emphasis on the counseling needs identified through interviews with chaplains and other professionals who work with Korean-American couples.
