"I completed basic training at San Antonio, Texas and went to Pennsylvania for 9 weeks of schooling for auto mechanics. My next assignment was in Tucson, Arizona at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base working in the Air Craft Refueling Section.

'Was promoted to Sergeant at this base before I got called for oversea duty. Spent 2 weeks in Kunsan, Korea and was transferred to Suwon, Korea with the 51st Fighter Wing. Worked on Air Craft Fuel and Oil Trucks there. We were one of the top fighter squads in Korea. We had some top pilots in there.

'After one year in Korea, I was sent home to Walker Air Force Base in Roswell, New Mexico. I was discharged from there and came home to Duluth. Our fighter squad has a reunion every year at different places in the States. We have one in July at Myrtle Beach this year.

'I hope you can read this note as I have a tough time writing. I'm 83 and my hands from frost bite have a hard time holding the pen because of very little feeling in the fingers. Thank you, Tom"
