    Maynard talks about doing basic training in Texas then going to Air Police school in Florida. He travels to California, Japan, and then gets stationed in Korea. The base he is on operates an emergency landing strip for planes on the front lines. He transferred to Food Service when he hears there is a shortage of cooks and gets to eat all he wants. He mentions many of the places he has visited in Japan and Korea. He mentions that many Koreans seem to respect the American servicemen. This letter is part of the Jesse G. Dorsey Korean War Correspondence collection. Dorsey was the Director of Recreation and Welfare and editor of the Speed-O-Meter newsletter for the Louisville Cement Company. Dorsey began sending monthly letters and the Speed-O-Meter to local service personnel during WWII. He continued this through the Korean War and for sometime afterwards. less
