Comments: I am in the process of reading through 200 letters written home by my father during his service from 1950 to 1952. He mentions many people, places and events. If you or a family member served with him, feel free to contact me.
He trained at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma and San Marcos, Texas. He was a helicoptor mechanic with the MASH unit. He shipped out from Seattle to Japan, then on to Korea in July of 1951.
His given name was Norman Neil Kesler, but he went by Neil or Toad
