I was drafted in the Army July 17, 1952. My basic training was in Fort Knox, Kentucky, trained to be a tank driver.

After training, I was on a ship to Korea.

I served in the U.S. tank company attached to the South Korea Army. We served on the 38th Parallel.

Our tanks were in slots at the top of hills. We slept in bunkers.

Now I am 90 years old and belong to the VFW and American Legion.
