On guard, at home and abroad
Like many high school seniors, Cliff Allen dreamed of leaving his hometown behind.
"I knew I'd have to leave to get a decent job," said Allen, who realized that his future would be found elsewhere.
A few short years after graduating from Red Wing High School in 2005, Allen found himself about as far from the city as possible - more than 6,000 miles away in South Korea.
And that was only the beginning of his travels.
