Youngest 'Corporal' In Korea: Bonzo, 8

By SPS Steve Wareck

 S&S Korea Bureau

TAEGU, Korea - "Cpl." Bonzo is an 8-year-old Korean waif with big problems - he has no parents and speaks no Korean.

Bonzo's home is with the 19th Quartermaster Co. in Taegu but nobody knows much about him except that his mother and father were killed in the war.  He was living with an engineering outfit, where he learned to speak English, until it broke up about a year ago.

A short time later one of the 19th's water trucks was passing through town when Bonzo hailed it.  He's kept a bunk and footlocker with them ever since.
