Japan & Korea 1953 - 1954

Martin Davis was drafted in August 1952 and sent to Fort Riley, Kansas. Some black and white pictures from basic training and Radio Operators school are included in this gallery. During February 1953, Martin & Edith were married and Martin left at once for the Far East. He arrived in Japan early March 1953, and joined the 24th Infantry Division, 26th AAA AW BN (SP) at Camp Younghans, Japan. Late June 1953, the unit left for Korea went to Pusan, then to Masan and finally moved to the front line area replacing the 45th Infantry. After 18 mos. in the Far East, Martin left for home in late July 1954. All photos taken with a Zeiss Ikon Contessa, 35mm camera with a wonderful f 2.8 Zeiss Tessar lens. The 35mm Kodachome slides were photographed using an Olympus 3020Z digital camera.
