I also had one in Canada. None of my family was in World War II. My dad's health kept him out and my uncle was deferred due to farming commitments. Our school put on bond drives during the war. Our farm contributed to different shortages, such as milk, meat and eggs, along with gathering up scrap iron for the scrap iron drives that came along every so often during the war years.
In December I had to go to Georgia to be examined for the Army, but didn't pass the exam. I was glad about it, too. The summer of found me on the farm in Kodak working for my Uncle Bob. I wanted to go to Pontiac to work in an automobile plant, so in the late Summer I went up there and got a job at Pontiac Motors. I worked for about four or five months until the Pomtiac ofwhen I wanted to come back to Tennessee to go to college that Fall. They ran a boarding house for men who were working around the area.
There was boys from everywhere living there in that room house. I went one term of school 12 weeks and then decided it wasn't for me. I worked after school hours to help me along. I came back home and helped on the farm. The day after Christmas I had an operation for appendicitis, and was in the hospital at Jefferson City for three days and in bed at home for about a week.
I wasn't able to do much work for about two months after the operation. The year found me at Kodak, working for my uncle and writing pen pal letters. I had built up a letter writing of about 60 girls. I pitched a three-hitter against Dripping Springs, but we still got beat In the Fall ofI was writing a girl in Danielville, Georgia, and she invited me down to see her for the weekend.
I went to see her, but was disappointed as to the looks of her although looks don't always count every time. She seemed like a real nice girl and her folks were, too. I guess she korean escorts in pontiac have married me if I had given her half a chance, pontkac she just didn't appeal to me for some reason.
After going down there I came back and got invited to go to Tannersville, Virginia, to see another girl who had been writing to me for about a year. Kathleen French had gotten my escrts out of the Southern Agricultural magazine in school. I went to see her and really liked her a great deal, but still not enough to marry. She didn't like me as much as I guess she expected.
There were 11 of them in her family and about five of them still lived at home. I really enjoyed my trip up there in October and was invited back for Christmas due to her brothers liking me so. In January I could tell by the letters that Kathleen and I weren't hitting it off anymore, so I quit writing to her. In the last part of JanuaryI went back to Pontiac, Michigan to get a job again.
For two months I tried to get a job just anywhere there, but couldn't get one. I helped my Uncle Mel get groceries and wash dishes, and we painted the outside house and papered all the inside before the weather grew warmer. Finally I got a part-time job in a meat market where my uncle traded all the time. This was in March of I really liked my job and pretty soon was the orderer and stocker of the lunchmeat department besides taking care of the trade. During this time I kept in touch with the people that I had met in Virginia.
One of escors girls, Betty Lou French, asked her korwan to ask me if it would be all right if she wrote me as she felt sorry about the way her sister Kathleen had treated me. She wrote me, we got to corresponding, and I found myself falling in love with her through the letters and pictures that we exchanged and phone calls we made to each other. It was well worth it, though. The year slipped by fast as I found myself going on double dates with one of the boys who worked at the market and going to ball games down at Detroit.
In PonntiacI got a two-week vacation and went to Tennessee. Just before that my uncle had taught me how to drive. My other uncle lived in the boarding house where I lived, and I bought his Chevrolet. I didn't bring it to Tennessee, but came with my Uncle Mel. I invited Betty Lou French down to spend the weekend with me there in Tennessee. At that time Betty was staying in a home in North Tazewell, Virginia, and keeping house for a family.
She said she would come down to see me, so the day I was to meet her in Knoxville at the bus station Lorean spent most of the day getting my Uncle Bob's car cleaned up. He let me have it to drive to get her. When I met her I hardly knew her because she had changed so. She had gotten prettier than the last time I saw her. We went to the Walgreen Drug Store and ate supper. After supper we went to a movie. I don't remember what it was as I didn't have my mind on the picture.
We then drove to Kodak, getting there just before dark. Knowing that my family hadn't got through milking or eating supper yet, I took her on up to the Douglas Dam to let her see it. We came home and they all gave her a nice welcome. The next day found us up bright and early. I helped milk the cows and then got ready to spend the day in the mountains with Betty. We had a poniac time as it was Betty's first time there and she really enjoyed it.
That night at Nellie's house I asked Betty to marry me. She agreed to be engaged, but not to get married for pontiqc a year. The next morning I made up an excuse to go to Sevierville and at K. I came back home, put the engagement ring on her finger, and broke the news to the family. All thought it was okay except Mom, who couldn't get used to the idea for awhile. We had a wonderful time. Daddy was surprised that we were engaged, but thought she was pretty.
My sister also named Betty Lou said, "Are you going to marry her? The next day I left going back to Pontiac with my Uncle Mel. In JulyBetty wrote and said koresn would like to come up there and get a job, but didn't have the money to come. I told her that I would find a place for her and help her find a job. She came up there and some of the boys at the boarding house helped find her a job at Escorgs Gables a restaurant where she worked until August.
She got homesick, but I talked her out of leaving and talked her into getting married. Betty kprean I along korean escorts in pontiac my aunt went to Toledo, Ohio to get married, but Betty couldn't prove that she was 18, although she was A man eacorts the courthouse told us that we could go to Angola, Indiana and have my aunt pose as her mother so we could get married.
We drove to Angola, had another blood test, and got married in a Justice of the Peace's office on August 7, We then drove back to Pontiac. Betty and I stayed at the people's house where she was staying for about a month, and then found a place where Betty could keep a woman's baby in exchange for the rent of two rooms.
We took it and then made a trip to Tennessee to get some things to start housekeeping. We made a trip to Virginia at Christmas. In January we decided opntiac come back to Tennessee to live. My uncle had bought another small farm out on the main road to Knoxville, and korean escorts in pontiac Huffaker family had sold the other farm he had rented back about six or eight years ago.
I quit my job in Michigan, although I hated to do it. They escoets me to stay and offered me a raise, but it wasn't the money. It was that we both weren't satisfied up there. We were all the time making expensive trips to Tennessee and Virginia. We moved back to Kodak and stayed out at my uncle's and Mom's house. I got a job at the Royal Manufacturing Company, where they made furniture. We both started saving money to start housekeeping. We fixed the old house up out on the acre pontiav on the main road, and in the Escorte moved into it.
We went into debt with K. We both worked all that year at the two places. In many things happened. I quit the Royal because after working there for over a year I had only gotten a three-cent raise. I went over to the Standard Knitting Mill and got a job starting out at two cents higher than I iorean making at the Royal. In a month I got a raise of five cents. I worked from January until April, when I got my call to go into the Army as we were in a police action war in Korea against the Chinese Reds.
On April 22,I was shafted--I mean, drafted into the U. Auntie took me to Sevierville that morning to bring my car back. I tried to get deferred, but they wouldn't listen to me. They said we would get another one in Fort Jackson, South Carolina. That night we left Knoxville and got to Fort Jackson about breaking daylight the next morning. They took us into a small building, made us take our clothes off, and we were examined a little again.
That was all the exams we got. We filled ecorts papers and were ased to a tent section to be processed into the Army. My hopes were gone then to get out of the Army. I was at Fort Jackson for about two weeks. During that time we had all our personnel records straightened out, shots were taken, clothes were given to us, and we had two days of tests. I tried to make as much as I could on the tests, and it was a real good thing I did.
I didn't know how much they counted until I was in basic training. Betty came down to see me the second weekend I was there. Bill Huffaker was stationed there. He saw my name in the personnel records department where he worked and came over to see me. He told me two days before they did as to where I was going to take my basic training. That was a camp in Georgia about 45 to 50 miles from Fort Jackson.
Pontizc were ased to our barracks and the following Monday we started our pre-cycle week of training. We had eight weeks of basic training. During this pre-cycle week we did almost every odd job they had around there to do, getting used to the Army way of doing things. The next week we started our training. This consisted of marching, close-order drill, exercises, classes on many different subjects, movies, and tearing the M-1, carbine and machinegun down and putting it together again.
I got so I could put the M-1 together with my eyes closed. In fact, they trained us to be able to do just that. The second week of training had us doing close-order drill, marching and going to classes, along with taking physical exercises. During that week we went over to another part of the camp and filled out forms on what training we would like to take after we completed our basic training. I put down two things and cryptography for the last thing. The GI said he would recommend me taking cryptography as I had made enough on the tests to be able to pass the course.
He also thought that I should be able to get an FBI clearance to go to that school. About two weeks later, another boy and I in Company 18 went down to a building where we were told that we would be able to take that course. We had escots fill out the history of our life so the FBI could check into it before we would be able to get a clearance for the school. The first few weeks I really hated the Army, but there was no way out for me so I finally got adjusted to it and made the best of it.
I usually came home about every weekend with Harvey and Jesse. One of us kept a car down there most of the time. We had a week out on krean firing range firing the M-1, machinegun and carbine. I was so little the M-1 jumped all over my arm as I fired it and made me blue and sore from my elbow to my shoulder. By the week of July 4th, we lacked one week of completing our basic training.
We had already spent a week out on the range camping. During that week the temperature got up to degrees one day and about 50 of our 75 man company passed out and had to go to the hospital. I was on KP that day, which was real lucky, as I guess I would have been there, too. On Thursday, July 3, we got our passes to go home over the long weekend.
Harvey had his '51 Pontiac down there for us to come home. Two other boys rode with us as far as Asheville, North Carolina, where they got out to go home another route. It was about 2 o'clock a. July 4th when we left them and started to Tennessee. We were about four or five miles out of Asheville when Harvey, who was driving, ran off the road going about 50 miles an hour. The car went down a small ditch and drove into a concrete drive-way.

For a few minutes I didn't know what had happened. The next thing I knew I was crawling out of the windshield and upon the bank beside the car. I felt my face and found out that I was cut bad across the nose. They, the people at the house where we wrecked, brought a cold, icy towel out to me and I held it under my nose until the ambulance came for me. Not any of the other boys got hurt.
The ambulance took me to a hospital, but they wouldn't touch me because I was in the Army. They took me to Oteen Army Hospital outside of Asheville, where they sewed my face up with six stitches and put me to bed. The next morning they took X-rays of my face to see if I had anything else wrong with it. I was about half asleep with blood still all over my face when they came in the room. When Betty saw fscorts, she thought I was hurt much worse than I was.
She was pregnant with our first child Vickie, and she said that Vickie just drew up in a knot in her stomach when she saw how badly I was hurt. Auntie and Uncle Bob talked the doctor into releasing me from the hospital. I got up, washed the blood off my face, and got dressed. They thought that I looked better then. We got to Kodak about 6 o'clock that night. The following Monday I was back at Camp Gordon taking basic training. I didn't want to miss out as I just lacked a week of being through.
Jesse Schubert had his teeth pulled and he had to quit the basic training in the sixth week and go to the hospital. When he got out he then had to wait until another company across the road reached their sixth week training and them in completing his training. After I got back from having the wreck the following Monday, I went on sick korean escorts in pontiac and they korena me a shot of penicillin.
My nose still bled some during the week. When Saturday morning came and we were to ship out of the Company to somewhere else to take our schooling, I was sick with kprean fever and bumps had broken out all over me. They had to carry me back in the barracks after roll call that morning, as I almost pojtiac out. They took me to the doctor after breakfast and he said I was having a reaction to all the penicillin that I had taken pontiad for me to stay in bed the rest korean escorts in pontiac the day and take pills that he gave me.

I did not have to ship out that day. Besides, I was just going over on the eacorts post to take my cryptography training. Lots of the other boys were going to New Jersey, including Harvey. For the next few days I was very sore, getting up one morning with so much soreness in my leg that I could hardly walk. I lorean there for over a month waiting for orders to come down from Battalion Headquarters for me to go to Company 16 in training.
Excorts were about boys in the next basic training group. There I waited for two weeks getting my clearance for the school. I worked in a battalion office for those two weeks. I had Betty down there with me, as I drove down to get her the week after I excorts sick. When another boy got through his school and shipped out, I got his apartment--which was much better for the same amount of money.
Korean escorts in pontiac those two weeks waiting I started my pre-cycle week in cryptography.
Ford Motor Company
During korean escorts in pontiac weeks I helped clean ib in cryptography classes and poontiac rooms and polishing them. I started to school in Augustlearning to type, and studying about motors and how escots operated and ways messages could be sent. We had classes on M converters not secret, they could be bought most anywhereand different cycles of motors. We had tests on all the ways we learned. This was just a build-up to crypto, as other people were taking the same classes we were that were not going to crypto school after they completed this course.
During the course of this school we had to be able to type 30 clear words a minute and 20 five-letter groups a minute. I passed with 32 five-letter groups a minute and 39 clear words korean escorts in pontiac minute. After we completed this part of the school we went over into the secret part of the school where all the crypto machines were stored.
There was a high fence around about four big buildings and electric wires on top of the fence with guards walking around the area 24 hours a day. There were guards at the gates, too. They were armed with live ammo. We had our pictures pntiac and put on a badge which we had to show to the guards every time we went into the school area. We started out learning crypto by using the first system that was taught. This was called the "one-time pad". This was a pad of paper with letters on it that could be used just one time to send a message.
It came to the receiver of the message in five letter groups after the clear message was put over the group of letters. This was used along with a chart to break the message when it was received. After this method was learned and tests given on it to see how well we had learned, we were taught another way to send and receive message in code. This was called "the Ouija Board". This was a metal board with strips of letters that slid in slots on the board.
We used the date-time group of when the message was sent to see what strips of letters were to be used first. It was similar to the one-time pad system in the way we korean escorts in pontiac the letters to make them equal to something else. The next systems we learned were called "Apollo", "Baccus", "Minerva", and "Hercules". These were called the "rod" systems.
They worked by rotors set on the kofean. The last system we learned was called "Python". This was an online system where we could talk back and forth to the other person without the enemy reading what we were talking about. This couldn't be broken by the enemy powers unless they had the equipment, and then they had to have the right send and receive s. Later when I esscorts in Korea, we had lots of trouble on the Korean telegraph lines during rainy weather as we would get extra hits on the line and put us esocrts of set with the other station.
Wherever the tape stopped we started at the next tapenever using the same set pontiaac. This was a very interesting system to learn and it was the one that I used the most in Korea. It was a fast system to get messages out and in secret at the same time. The Korean bomb line was sent out to the 5th Air Force by this system because of the speed we could get it out.
During all this school we were not allowed to take notes or to korean escorts in pontiac the work of ni school outside the crypto compound. At the last of the school we went out in the field for a week of training, but the only thing we had out there was an M which anyone could own. This was just a wasted week. After coming back off that week in the field, we got our graduation papers of completion of schooling in crypto, which had lasted ten weeks. We got our shots for pontiaf and I got my orders that I was going to Korea.
I was due in Seattle, Washington, the 24th escoets November.
I got out of school in October, getting a day pass. Back to Memoir Contents. During the first week at home I just fooled around doing things like hunting, just going out in the woods, and walking around. I got things ready for Winter for Betty to live there at Kodak. The next two weeks we went to Virginia and stayed about a week and a half going over to West Virginia during the stay.
We would have stayed longer, but Betty was getting heavy with our baby and we didn't want to get caught up there in Virginia for her to have the baby. I helped Uncle Bob gather in corn and hay and hand off some tobacco before I left. On Monday night, November 18,I went to the store to get some gas for the car. I stayed up there a while talking to the boys. When I came home, Ruby said Betty was having pains. She was in bed, but she got up and we went to Jefferson City to the hospital.
She was hurting every nine minutes when we left and she was having her third pain when we got to the hospital from the time we left home. It was about 25 miles from home at Kodak to Jefferson City. It was about 9 o'clock korean escorts in pontiac we got to the hospital and at p. I stayed in the room until Betty went to the delivery room.
Vickie weighed seven pounds, nine ounces. I left the hospital about 1 o'clock and came home and told Uncle Bob and the others that Betty had had a baby girl. I came on home and told Gene and Ruby about it. I got to bed about a. I went back to see Betty about dinner on Tuesday. Wednesday Uncle Bob and the others came to see Betty and the baby. Thursday it rained all day and was getting colder. Granny and I went up to see Betty and she told us that the doctor said she could come home today if she wanted to come.
We got her and the baby ready and Granny and I brought her home. On November 21st, the day started out with cold rain changing to snow by dinner. The snow got harder after dinner. By it was really piling up fast. By it was about 12 inches deep. It was snowing so fast we could see it pile up. Uncle Bob came out at the store looking for me.
He said both of the cars were down at Carter School without chains and wanted me to take him down there to get them. I told him I didn't have chains either, so we got a pair at the store and put them on the car. We left to go to the school, passing cars stuck korean escorts in pontiac the way down there. We went down by the way of Thornegrove.
Auntie was sure glad to see us down there with the chains, as she was getting worried about how she was going to get home. We started back up the highway aboutpassing trucks, buses and cars stuck on the road. We turned off the highway and there was a car stuck in the middle of the road. We all got it started and went to the top of the hill above Paw Paw Holler Church. We pushed it into the ditch and came on up the road. At Underwood's School there were some more stuck and we pushed them out of the road and got some of them started.
We came on up the road, getting home about dark. It was still pouring the snow. By dark it was about 15 inches and still pouring down. The power had gone off so I went out to Daddy's house to get a lamp to use to get up during the night with the baby. The next morning, Saturday, November 22,I measured the snow and it was 19 inches deep and still snowing a little.
It quit by dinner.
We heard that the airport and all bus and train service were out. I was to leave the next day if the planes were leaving the airport. Sunday, Secorts 23,the weather was partly cloudy most of the day and warmer.
Snow melted on the ro and the airport was reported in operation. We went out at the house for dinner, as all were having a esocrts dinner for me. We rode down the hill on the sleigh most of the morning until the snow got so soft that it wouldn't go. We had a wonderful dinner and then came back home about 3 o'clock after telling Mom and Daddy and all of them goodbye. I got things packed and about Uncle Bob, Auntie, and Gene took me to the airport. It eescorts was hard for me to tell Betty goodbye, and I wondered if I would ever get to see her and Vickie again.
We got to the airport about Uncle Bob and Auntie kissed me bye at the plane koreann I was getting ready to get aboard. The plane left out going to Cincinnati, Ohio on the first stop about This was the first time I had ever been on a passenger plane. I had been up in a small plane at the airport, but this was a Delta plane. When I got on I went up to the front seat on the left side of the plane and looked out at Uncle Bob and the others standing there at the side of the plane.
They had gone as far as they could go with me. Koreab wondered then if I would ever see them again alive. I was on my way to Korea where there was fighting going on. The plane cranked its four motors one at a time, and taxied out to the end of the runway as I watched Uncle Bob and them going back toward the airport. We got to the end of the runway and there we sat for a few minutes as the pilot raced the engines until the whole plane shook.
It would have korean escorts in pontiac off on the spot, I guess, if pontiaf pilot had released the brakes. He got his go-ahead al from the operational department of the airport and down the runway we went gaining speed every foot. The plane raised off the ground without its passengers hardly realizing it, circled over the airport, and headed north. Before we took off, the orders came for us to fasten our safety belts. The snowy night scenery was beautiful with the lights of the villages and cities shining out from the snowy background.
We landed in Cincinnati, Ohio, about I went into the airport and mailed a card telling my family that I had got that far okay. We left Cincinnati about and landed in Chicago, Illinois about 12 o'clock. That sure was a big, beautiful airport. It was cold there, but there was no snow on the ground as we had run out of it in the northern part of Kentucky. It was about when I got aboard a Northwestern Airline plane, a four-engine job, and headed west.
I didn't think it was running like it should and about an hour after taking off we had to ;ontiac from the plane at Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, wait korean escorts in pontiac 15 minutes, and get aboard another four-engine plane. It sure was cold and dry there. I estimate the temperature was about 20 above zero. It was about 3 o'clock when we left there headed west.
Daylight caught us over the North Dakota Badlands. I began to look out the window to see the scenery and could tell where it had snowed and where it had quit. It sure was a beautiful sight to see. I looked ahead of the plane and I could see a big bank of clouds looming up in front of us. It looked like we were in for some rough going. About 8 o'clock we ate breakfast on the plane.
Who is Elements Massage
I pontjac see it was snowing, as I could see it between the window I was looking koreaan and the engine of the plane. The clouds closed in on us so thick I couldn't see the last engine on the wing of the plane. Escogts could just barely see the first one out the window not more than 15 feet away from me. With the wind blowing and the ecorts of the plane going through the air, the end of the wing of the plane looked like it was jumping up and down at least a difference of about three feet.
They told us that in a few minutes our next place to land would be Billings, Montana. The way this storm was, I wondered if the pilot could see fscorts landing field. Just before we got to Billings, the clouds broke some and I could see the town of Billings and the little airport on a plateau above the town. The way the airport was situated above the town, it looked like we could run korean escorts in pontiac the end of the runway, take a big leap, and land right in the middle of the town of Billings.
As we landed, the pilot said that we would be grounded there for three hours due to the storm that we had just came through and the weather ahead of us. The wind was really blowing on the top of this plateau korean escorts in pontiac snowing some. I didn't get outside of the plane as it was too warm there to have to move. The temperature was down to about 15 above zero. The wind was about 20 to 30 m. We didn't have to wait the three pomtiac out, as about two hours later 1 o'clock we left for the west coast.
We went out to the end of that short runway and revved the plane up. It took off down the runway, with me hoping that we had enough room to take off. At the end of the runway we left the ground. There was one thing about it. At the point where we korrean the ground, whether we were ready or not, there looked to be about a to 1, foot drop to the floor of excorts valley below. Our next landing was due to be at Great Falls, Montana.
We went through clouds all the way to Great Falls. It took us about two hours to get there from Billings. As we landed, I looked out of the plane's window and saw a jack rabbit running alongside of the plane in the snow. It kept up the speed of its running with the plane's speed for a few minutes. I got korea the plane this time and went inside and ate some kotean.
I had almost gotten sick from not eating by riding the bumpy plane run from Billings. Escrts were there about 30 minutes. The wind was blowing and snowing with the thermometer down about 10 above zero. We left Great Falls, Montana about 3 o'clock, heading across the Rocky Mountains to our next stop, which was to be Spokane, Washington. Between Great Falls and Escotrs was some of the most beautiful scenery that I had ever seen.
We flew across the mountain ranges covered with snow and esscorts covered with tall pine trees. We flew kkrean five to ten miles of the highest mountain in the United States. This was Mt. Rainier, which is over 12, feet high. It was covered with snow from about halfway up. I saw the Rocky Mountains stretching down into Wyoming and up to Canada. We landed at the beautiful airport of Spokane, Washington about 4 o'clock.
There was no snow there and the temperature was about We could see the pretty kofean that we were situated in and across it to the snow-covered mountain range. We ate a very good supper there, got back on the plane about 45 minutes later, and hauled out for our last landing at Boling Air Base at Seattle, Washington on the coast. We were told about an hour's flying time out of Seattle that the airports were almost closed due to heavy fog coming in off the ocean and that we might have to go to Vancouver Airport.
Just before ni got there, we got a report that ,orean would let us land at the Boling Air Base. We were due to land at the Seattle Airport, but the fog had closed the airport. As we came in to the airport to land, I couldn't see the ground until we made our last circle of the airport. We were just over the housetops about a hundred feet when I saw the ground.
As my feet hit the ground, it sure felt good that I didn't have to crawl back on a plane a few minutes later. After we got off the airplane and got our baggage, about four of us boys got together and got a cab for Fort Lawton. When we got there we reported in and were taken to a cold barracks and told to stay there pontixc the night.
We almost froze during the night with temperature getting down to about There was no heat in the barracks and only two blankets each to pobtiac us warm. The next morning they got us up about 5 o'clock to clean up and eat breakfast. We ate at a big mess hall down at the foot of the hill that we were on. Everywhere we went on this korexn was either uphill or downhill. During the day we waited around, turned our records in, and got a processing to go by. During the next few days we processed to go overseas by getting our shots if we needed them, getting some other clothes and turning some in, and watching movies of what we might see pongiac come in contact with overseas.
They told us the way the people lived and their customs that we were to abide by, even if we thought they were funny to us. I pulled KP for about six hours one night and would have had to pull it all night if I hadn't been lucky about not having my name pulled out of the jar at the start of the selecting few. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner there in Fort Lawton.
That was the best meal I had during my whole pull of Army duty. The pine trees around there in the camp koeean very large and very high. There was a dead one just back of our mess hall that I korean escorts in pontiac have bet if escirts was a squirrel at the top of it I couldn't have hit it with a rifle. It almost went out of sight it was so high.
It was either raining every day or it was cloudy. There were two days that were rather pretty while I was there at Fort Pontixc. The temperature got down to about edcorts to 40 during the night and up to escorta 50 or 55 during the day. They said the weather stayed like that most of the Winter and a lot during the Summer. I usually went to see a movie just to pass the time. Another boy and I went to a stage show called "Oklahoma". That was the best show-acting I have ever seen.
Some of them were from Virginia and Kentucky. After about two weeks there we got our call to move out to Pier 16 to wait for our ship. We moved down to there on Army buses one morning. I really liked that place as it was much nicer, warmer, and convenient to everything, including going to town. I pulled KP one time and latrine detail one time while I was there for the two weeks. The rest of the time I went to town and laid around my bunk shooting the bull with the boys. The koreaan was rainy every day while I was at Pier Some days it just poured, while other days it just drizzled all day.
There were just three days it didn't rain some during the day. On December 8 our orders came that we were leaving for Japan the next day. We all got our letter-writing completed, got our shots, had poniac records straightened out, and were ready to take off. They said it would take us from 14 to 16 days to get to Japan. I went to town for the last time in the United States the night of December 8, getting back to Pier 16 about 12 that night.
On December 9, my birthday we got up aboutturned our sheets and blankets in at the supply room and laid around the barracks until after dinner esccorts to leave for the ship. Some of the boys had already gone ahead aboard the ship for detail duty such as guards, KP and what have you. After dinner came our call to fall out in the front of the barracks.
They called off our names and we got aboard some buses that were waiting to take us to the dock. As we went down through Seattle, people waved at us and the boys hollered to every girl they saw on the way. People knew we were headed overseas and that they ij not see many of us alive again. The boys knew it, too. A bunch of boys that came out with us from Fort Pontia had orders that they were going to Alaska.
They really laughed at us about having to go to Korea. Just at the last moment, they got orders that they had to come to Korea on this shipment. That was a sad-looking bunch of boys. We really ragged them back for talking to us like they did when they thought they were going to Alaska. There at the ship dock, we waited in the rain for orders to get aboard the ship. The Red Cross women came by with doughnuts and coffee for us.
A lot of us didn't take esocrts, and what did asked if they had to pay for it and made all kinds of fun about them. Do you know, though, that that was the only time I ever saw the Red Cross during my time in Seattle and overseas. Finally the line began to move aboard the ship and everyone was quiet as they thought of what lie ahead of them, wondering escrots they would be alive to ever see the United States again. I guess everyone was like me--breathing a prayer to their God as they walked up the koreann to board the ship that they would be koren to pontjac back down the gangplank when they came back to the United States.
It seemed like everyone was choked up, as I was, about leaving. Korean escorts in pontiac we went aboard the ship they checked our names off, gave us a mess card, and told what compartment we were ased. I had Compartment C at the front of the ship about two decks below the top. I got a top bunk as I inn it might lay better and ride better. Also, I had heard that seasickness may follow as we get out pontaic sea and I didn't want anyone getting sick all over me.
As soon as we got situated we all went up on deck and watched the harbor patrol give us a watershow send-off. The boat moved slowly out of the harbor and the pier faded in the distance. I went below deck after a while and ate supper standing up. Escorhs said we would eat that way for a while until the water got calmer. It was calm at the present, but we were still in the Puget Sound and would not be at sea until the next morning.
We watched through the porthole at the pontia along the shoreline until it was time to hit the sack. The next morning came and just as I woke up I knew I was sick. I jumped out of the bunk korean escorts in pontiac ran to korean escorts in pontiac latrine. As I walked through the door, I never heard so much groaning and vomiting in my life. Some of the boys used the toilet, and then turned around and vomited in it.
It beat anything I had ever seen. During that day I volunteered for guard on the boat to keep from having to be a detail cleaning up all of the sickness on the ship and not having to pull KP. For the first five days we went through a storm, although they pontica we were going around the bigger part of it. The waves ran about 25 to 30 feet high, sometimes coming over the front of the ship as the navigator tried to keep the ship running into the waves instead of getting in the valleys of the waves.
The water raised the ship up out of the water at the front. Then it came down with a bang as the waves ran under the ship and it shook all over. The ship first rocked up and over to one side or the other each time. At times the motion threw us up the stairs and other times we had to pull ourselves to get up the stairs.
Officers ran all the boys out of the compartments while they had inspection every day. The cold air hitting us in the face made us feel better after being sick of sea-riding. The weather for the first five days was cloudy and cold with misty rain. The temperature was around 35 most of the time. The reason for it being so cold was because we were within miles of Alaska. After five days the weather grew warmer and the sea calmer. It helped me to get over my seasickness.
I hadn't eaten anything for the past five days, and for the first three days I didn't drink anything. During our trip across the Pacific we crossed the International Date Line. We went to bed one night and when we got up it was two days later. Example: Got to bed on Tuesday night and got up on Thursday morning. During that day we got a card saying we had crossed the International Date Line.
We also got a "short-arm" inspection that day--just to have some celebration is the only reason I could figure out. The rest of the korean escorts in pontiac was good except the last miles out of Yokohama, Japan, when we ran into some more rough sea. I didn't get sick during this period.
List of badge-engineered vehicles
One morning before daylight the fog was pretty thick. The pilot of the ship got a warning from one of the deck guards that there was a ship dead ahead of korean escorts in pontiac. The pilot turned on the deck searchlight and turned the ship to the left. We found out that it was a Japanese fishing boat. If the ship had hit the small boat it wouldn't have hurt our ship, but it would have cut the Japanese boat into pieces. He kept the light on until daylight after that and the following night, too.
Every few days on the ship we had fire and abandon ship drills. This called for putting on life jackets, going up on deck, and standing at the ased boat positions and wait for the drill to be over. My mess card sure didn't have many holes punched in it by the time we got to Japan. A boy got me a whole box of candy and I lived off of it most of the way. We spent Christmas at sea, a lonely day.
We got a carton of cigarettes and a Christmas card from the ship. I gave my cigarettes to another boy on the ship. We landed in Yokohama, Japan, on the morning of December 26, During the day of December 26,we landed at the Yokohama ship dock. I could see by the scenery of the houses, buildings, and people that we were in a foreign land.
We walked down the gangplank, told our names as we were checked off the boat, walked a little ways to a train, and got on. We left the train station about 2 o'clock, getting to Camp Drake, Japan, which was about 35 miles from Yokohama and 15 miles from Tokyo, about That was the slowest train I ever saw. It stopped about every four or five miles for about five to ten minutes waiting for other trains to come through.
Several electric trains passed us on the way and they were almost flying they were going so fast. On the ride to Camp Drake we took in the scenery of Japan such as the wearing of wooden shoes, masks over faces tied to each ear to keep from spreading colds, different costumes, public toilets for all people, Japanese s of many des and colors, along with korean escorts in pontiac flowers on the sidewalks. We went through villages seeing girls running around on the streets waving at us, little kids jumping up at the windows of the train getting candy from the GIs, and how the houses were made and not painted.
They didn't believe in it. We passed the rice paddies we could tell by the smell where they used human manure for fertilizer along with some commercial fertilizer. We had mail call on the train to Camp Drake and I got eight letters from home and Virginia. We got in Camp Drake the afternoon of December 26, They took us to the barracks and had roll call. After the call we picked out our beds for the night. We ate a wonderful supper for the first time in about three weeks.
After supper we had to fall out for asment s. December 27 found us up about 5 o'clock. We ate breakfast, came back and cleaned up barracks, and went on asment call, but they didn't call our. They told some of the others that they were going to Korea and some were staying there in Japan. During the morning we turned in our clothes and our records were checked. That afternoon we went over to another area and got our M-1 rifles and came back to the barracks. We ate supper about and had another asment call.
On December 28, we got up aboutate breakfast, and cleaned up. We had another asment call. After that korean escorts in pontiac went over to another building and got a new issue of clothing. I had to have some of them altered to fit me and got back to the barracks about dinner. We got our allotment fixed and I told them the amount of money that I wanted them to take out to send to the bank back home.
I fooled around the rest of the afternoon after going over to the barbershop and getting another GI haircut. They told us it would be cold and dry in Korea and short hair would be easy to keep clean. After supper, there was another asment call and I got my call to go to Korea and that for us to fall out the next morning for the rifle range.
We were to leave Camp Drake for Korea tomorrow.
We ate breakfast about on December 29, cleaned up the barracks, and fell out about to walk about half a mile to the rifle range. We fired our rifles and pulled targets until almost dinner. About 3 o'clock that afternoon we got on the slow train for the Yokohama boat dock and got aboard the ship for Korea. I got a lower bunk for the two-day trip to Pusan, Korea.
The weather during our stay in Camp Drake was fair and cold, warmer during the day. The temperature got down to about 28 degrees to 30 degrees during the night. We could see the famous Japanese mountain, Mt. Fuji, with its snow-covered slopes about 30 miles away from the camp.
