The board's order stems from a recent $1.1-million settlement of a lawsuit by the wife of a deputy who had been assigned to the substation alongside the Golden State Freeway in the remote Tejon Pass.

It's 6 p.m., and one by one the women from all over the country begin to telephone in, joining the mass conference call. Most are strangers to one another, but there is an instant bond.

Yu Dong Son, 27, and his 80-year-old grandmother run a 2 1/2-acre farm in this area 72 miles south of Seoul. It is more than twice as big as neighboring farms, but it no longer produces enough to keep Yu out of debt, he said. Starting with a loan of $450 seven years ago, his debt has grown to $6,000, he said.

"My husband has been on other deployments, but this one obviously is a lot different," said Monika, a corporal's wife and the mother of a 4-year-old. "The danger this time is the one thing we always talk about. We don't really know exactly where our husbands are, but we know they went over there to fight."
