Anthony Deblasi (80) entered the Army in 1953, trained as a radio repairman, and was assigned to the 304th Signal Battalion in Korea. His basic training had been at Camp Gordon, GA and radio school at Fort Monmouth, NJ. In Korea, he was stationed in the village of Bupyong with the Radio Operation Company. He rotated home from Korea in January 1955, and was discharged upon arriving at Camp Kilmer, NJ. He then worked at the Brooklyn Army Terminal first as a supply clerk in the radio repair shop and then as a computer programmer. He now lives in Maine and writes about his experience (in Military magazine and KWVA’s Graybeards magazine), helping to keep the memory of the Korean war alive.
