WITH 3RD DIV IN KOREA- Moe, a
little Korean boy left injured in the mud without parents or home, now
has a little more to look forward to because of SFC Fred C. Ford of
LaFollette, Tenn., and the men of the 3rd Signal Radio Relay Section.
Judged to be only about three years old by his benefactors,
Moe was first seen standing by the road crying by Ford and Lt. George
Warford, Nebury, Mass. Ford, who adopted a little German boy in similar
circumstances while on occupation duty in Germany, vowed to pick him
up if he was still there when they returned.
When they came back, "He was knee deep in mud, crying
at the top of his lungs, and with a bloody bruise over his eye," Ford
Back in the signalmen's' quarters, Moe was cleaned,
DDT'd, given new clothing and medical aid, and temporarily "adopted"
by the signal section.
Though he seems to be content now, the signalmen
hope to place Moe in some sort of home at the first opportunity.
