I was sleeping in the barracks at Osan AFB Korea when I got the news. Twenty minutes later I was issued an M2 carbine and three magazines and placed on a post on the base perimeter. The orders were anyone outside the perimeter we called halt three times in Englinsh and Korean. Improper response or no response, shoot.Fact of the matter was we didn't know if the Norks of Chicoms would be piling down our throats at any minute. Korea this time of year can get mighty chilly. Being scared stiff didn't help much.

22 November, 1963, I was pithing turkeys in the Agricultural Shop as we prepared turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners. The announcement came over a loud-speaker from the office that the President had been assassinated in Dallas. Unfortunately, we were under pressure to complete the butchering, so work continued throughout the afternoon.

Second grade, at school, Ft Wainwright Alaska. They sent us home from school, shortly dad came flying up in a Jeep. Told mom to get ready to “bug out” but we never did.
