GENERAL MORTON: MY SHIP TO KOREA
FEB 02, 1957

DAY 1 OF 23 DAYS ACROSS THE PACIFIC OCEAN
DONALD KOBUS ONE OF HIS JOBS WAS MINE DISPOSAL-FIND/DISARM AND SOMETIME REPLANT.
KOBUS AND HENDERSON ON THE DMZ
I HAD TO LOOK LIKE AN MP BECAUSE WE HAD A JOB TO REMOVE A TRAIN CAR LOADED WITH DEISEL THAT BROKE AWAY AND ROLLED INTO THE DMZ MINE FIELD.
kobus said his prayers on this job; each mine I found and disarmed had two mines together, 44 lbs. of TNT. We did not know if they were booby-trapped. My concern was I had to have a truck drive down the track to put a cable on the train car and pull it out of the DMZ, was glad we didn't  miss any mines because the mine detector was picking up hits from the railroad tracks. It was weird seeing the North Korean soldiers looking at you and wondering what they were thinking.
TWO OF ABOUT 20 MINES WE TOOK OUT AND REPLACED AFTER WE GOT THE TRAIN CAR OUT

Their pay was $50 per month and a care box that had 4 cartons of smokes,  candy, soap and tooth power. My pay was $213 per month and that included my $50/mo. overseas duty pay.

Typical day at work

Imjim River".

Guess what!  It worked!
