Stars and Stripes, 14 December 1953


FIFTH AIR FORCE, KOREA --- Lee Dia Koon smiles at his foster father, S/Sgt. William Freer of Toledo, Ohio, at the U.S. Air Force 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing base in Korea.  Lee Dia Koon, called "Tony", was adopted as a mascot by Sergeant Freer's squadron.  Then the sergeant's mother, who saw a picture of the boy, decided to adopt Tony and bring him to the United States.  Tony can recite the English alphabet, count to 100 and type in a "hunt and peck" fashion.
