Comments: I am currently active duty Air Force and my grandpa passed away
a few years ago and before he passed he said he served Postal
Operations while in Korea during the Korean War. I know it is a
longshot but I was wondering if anyone remembers or knew him.
If so I would love to hear from you! Thank you very much!

Comments: Twice some years ago I lived in Korea with my USAF husband at which time a man once known to "GI Company" as "Shorty" or "Johnny" worked in our quarters...now known as KC. For over thirty years after the Korean War he worked for Americans in Korea. He remembers the kindness of many Americans....and in particular of one Tom Cannon and his mother (from the States). I would like to hear from anyone who knew him...in particular would like to be in touch with Tom Cannon. The locations mentioned are approximate...from memory years after, but hopefully helpful. Thank you!!

Comments: I served in the US Army postoffice at Yong Dung Po from Dec 1946 to June 1947. This was "between the wars." We landed from the Gen Weigel transport ship at Inchon by landing craft, Dec. 3, 1947. Left via same method on Weigel June 29, 1947. We would take a large truck from YDP to Inchon every few weeks to get incoming mail. Also, took truckloads of mail to Kimpo airfield about twice a week. Korea was pretty poor and desolate then. Our little P.O. was in a small "house" next to a demolished factory with tall smoke stack, at edge of YDP. We slept in quonset huts a mile or so away.
