The Grahams’ of Cochran County – Chapter 43 – Continued – Tour in Pre-War Korea

 

My Duties started as a clerk typist in G-3 section of 7th Infantry Division in May 1948.  This of course was before the North Koreans had invaded the South Korean part of the peninsula.  The narrative you see under the pictures was typed by me 70 years ago.image_55839780062962

Sturdy looking building.  They do have earthquakes there sometime.image_55839803227703

We were on alert with our combat gear near.  The North Korean leader was making threats about pushing us and the South Korean Army off the peninsula on a regular basis. image_558399850172891

In 1948 this was a primitive nation.  The Japanese had ruled the nation for 40 years and had robbed the resources so the could fight the war with China and the United States of America in WWII.  The next chapter will be about a week-end pass and some of the friends that I made in pre-war Korea.
