Jenkins may become an English teacher

What a day for the profession. Charles Robert Jenkins, a deserter from the American Army in 1965 who now resides in Japan after a slap-on-the-wrist sentence for desertion, is back among the Japanese population. In an article, US army deserter begins new life in Japan, it says that one option for the future is to teach English

Soga already has a job as a health worker in Sado and Japanese officials have suggested that Jenkins could teach English, although he left school at 15 and has a heavy drawl.

I'm sure he would be very good at showing young learners in Japan how to appear in propaganda films and how to effectively give up sensitive military intelligence.
