John Hartup, Jr.

Bio

John Dewey Hartup, Jr. was born in Long Beach, California, on August 7, 1928. He moved around a lot as a kid and ended up attending five different grade schools. He attended high school in both Oregon and Arizona and graduated from North Phoenix High School in 1945. Before heading to Korea, he did know where it was on the map due to his interest in stamp collecting; however, he did not remember learning about Korea in school. He enlisted in the United Staes Army at age seventeen on August 7, 1945. He attended the U.S. Army program that allowed him to attend college for one year until he turned eighteen. Once of age, he attended basic training at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas.  He served in Korea as a driver for the Korea Base Command, Headquarters Company during the post-WWII occupation, from September 1946 to 1947. After Korea, he attended college at Washington State, studying civil engineering. He later returned to Korea as a 2nd Lieutenant in 1951, was stationed in both Busan and Incheon, and served as an engineer.

Korean Reaction to the American Soldiers

John Hartup, Jr., recalls the Koreans loving the American soldiers. The American soldiers operated the port of Incheon, so the Koreans depended on them to provide jobs. He recalls there were probably one thousand workers hired to operate the port. He remembers the presidential election of 1948 when Syngman Rhee was elected as the first president of the new Republic of Korea. He remembers being paid roughly fifty dollars a month, saving some of it in a U.S. bank and spending the rest in the base exchange (PX).

Stories from R&R in Japan

John Hartup, Jr., recalls going on Rest and Relaxation in Japan. He recounts how soldiers would sell cigarettes to make money and take advantage of the favorable exchange rate in Japan. He shares how he would live on the profits of cigarette carton sales in Japan for an entire week and adds that they afforded him a nice hotel room.

Stories of His Experience in Korea

John Hartup, Jr., recalls his experiences in and around Seoul when he and his friends had time away from work. He remembers USO (United Service Organizations) shows would happen about once a week. He recalls renting a jeep on the weekends for cheap to go sightseeing and mentions staying in a nice U.S. Army hotel in Songdo to get away from work. He remembers Songdo being very nice.

Mixed Emotions

John Hartup, Jr., discusses his mixed emotions about his time in Korea. While he shares that he did have some fond recollections of his time, he describes the living conditions as miserably cold during the winter. He remembers their heaters not working most of the time and feeling the need to try anything to get warm. He recounts his relief to leave Korea and return to college at Washington State in November 1947. He shares that he studied civil engineering.

Comparing Korea: Before, During, and After the War

John Hartup, Jr., compares the Korea he witnessed in 1946-1947 to the Korea he experienced in 1951. He recalls seeing many refugees going south in 1951. He remembers the city of Incheon as a bustling metropolis in 1947, and in 1951, it was completely leveled and destroyed. He remembers the same about Seoul. He recounts how there was no farming or agriculture taking place in 1951. He shares that he revisited Korea three times after the war and emphasizes that he was very impressed by modern Korea. He notes that it is difficult to compare modern Korea to the devastation he witnessed during the war.
