A LETTER FROM WILL CAMPBELL.
“Actually, I didn’t really want to go to Korea
because I’m not as brave and manly as I look.
But duty called,
and I gladly went after my government threatened to jail me If I didn’t.
My motto was…’Join the army, meet interesting people, and kill them.’
“There were three of us who went Into the army at the same time:
me and the two MP’s who were dragging me!
I was so excited.
“One of the first things I did in Korea was go for my physical checkup.
They wanted to find out If I was healthy enough to get shot and killed.
“My days in Korea were all about the same…Shoot somebody you didn’t know…
and they would shoot you In return, and say things like ‘Go Home Yankee.’
I would usually respond with ‘Oh, Yeah…Make Me.’
This would really make them mad.
“The commanding officer told me that I was being returned to the states
because none of the men liked my guitar playing or singing.
“When I finally got home from Korea,
I was totally ignored and dehumanized,
and made to feel unnecessary, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
AND NOTES FROM ME…
Hurricane Season is starting.
The only safe place is an interior room.
In a mobile home that would be the refrigerator.
I took a walk and was the only one on the street.
If the neighbors see me out
they’ll think we’re getting six more weeks of Winter.
The Leesburg riot has been cancelled due to a lack of interest.
I must be in Heaven.
Every day here is Sunday.
