tiers high
5:01
a lot of people get seasick was not nice I spend as much time
5:04
on top upon a deck as I couldn’t have been done in the whole
5:08
because the smell and just the closeness and everyone
5:12
everybody’s or less
5:15
the weather wasn’t a great maybe that’s why it took so long
5:20
what was the reaction from you when you decide
5:23

5:28
well they didn’t say it was not a good idea they didn’t say was a good I’d
5:32
a bad idea they just went along with what I want to do
5:38
wall Europe
5:41
I have one sister I have one sister
5:45
and no brothers I’m I had my father was a druggist
5:49
a yet to drug stores in town here
5:55
I was extended family
5:58
so tocqueville well you
6:02
right well it was pretty
6:05
near the end of the war over there and you know it was kinda
6:09
all-time oriental times I guess who is a
6:12
nothing new like it is now a course was
6:16
people with a wooden shoes and
6:20
it was different to me you know it and I I enjoyed it
6:24
there was no fighting at the time you know it with a strictly occupation
6:27
ride know I was only there for your word
6:31
the southern island cooker southern
6:35
most violent in the town occur
6:39
at that time I was assigned as a recall on
6:43
a driver and the only thing that we did
6:47
already substance was we went to the different
6:51
coal mines like it should say just to see if there are any Japanese though
6:56
you know in that in the mines that didn’t want it surrender to the american
7:00
forces
7:02
so that was kind of interesting with your Weiner
7:06
anyway dangerous no not know
7:10
in fact the before I left there even building
7:14
coca-cola plants there so I would say you know it was the
7:18
not dangerous whatsoever
7:22
which it was twenty five dollars a month
7:28
your I think that was the pay scale at that time
7:31
I i’m not sure but I think it was that and there was nothing to spend money on
7:35
anyways
7:37

for cases we are you mission
19:28
well there was a lot of walking around to begin with a
19:31
we go down to company strength and that’s what
19:35
strength to go out to take pictures so
19:39
most photographers that I know of we’re always looking
19:43
the action pitches everybody wanted to get a panic attack
19:47
and there were very few of those over there but we took pictures of
19:52
everything that they were everything that was going on whether it was
19:57
if we were assigned to an eye to eye out for it we took pictures at the big
20:00
artillery guns firing a if we were
20:05
whatever was going on we took pictures of Israel amounted to
20:08
so there are many of you to
20:12
picture while lot
20:15
I mean real yes while the fighting was going on yes
20:19
years people were firing
20:24
they’re shooting each other so I guess that was if you I call it dangerous I
20:27
don’t know
20:28
for the moment that you might be you
20:33
I did they have one time the that really
20:37

20:54
and I was a whole and artillery shells came really close
20:59
everyone was in a whole and that lasted quite a few
21:03
quite a long time yet we perhaps it was sunny
21:06
course we were sending the same thing over them so
21:10
but I finally stopped and troops got an small assault boats
21:14
across the river and
21:18

what is your for right image
26:52
well it was kind of like a treeless landscape
26:55
I don’t remember many trees you know it was mostly
26:58
small scrubby things I think if occur at all
27:03
they call it that in the morning combat
27:08
I was impressed with your up
27:13
Cup hammer yeah research Speed Graphic it was a new Skype camera
27:18

27:24
was and how many pounds are it but we used to have
27:27
it was for a bite five-inch negative that we have
27:31
and I used the carrier in a pouco used to carry
27:34
but will call film packs they were films that
27:38
you have twelve to a pack you took a picture in the pole piece paper out
27:42
and the next film which show up you know and
27:46
henry give are exposed film
27:49
runners that would bring it back to work for a second and it said it on the Japan
27:53

28:40
I know that I never saw an infantryman
28:43
in a company size location
28:47
with a hammer that seems to be reasonable
28:50
this is should way was because it was
28:53
not pick you know it was war maybe today they could because be a very small
28:57
camera they could
28:59
sticking a pocket but in those days the smallest camera believe would be a
29:02
thirty five millimeter camera
29:04
because that would be pretty tricky dick
29:09
probably like that your Collingswood stick out to you know
29:15

mom more mmm
33:56
what do you think is the legacy Warren
34:00
all water
34:06
I think the Korean people really like the American soldier
34:10
I really believe that I mean every year they pay to
34:15
for use over there and they put us up over their fetus
34:19
I think they’re grateful to we did what we did
34:24
Americans but I know up I think france
