John Robb of Humboldt served in the Korean War

A few months after he began work for Monarch in 1959, John Robb found a surprise in the mail, a draft notice telling him when and where to report for induction to the U.S. Army.

That wasn’t what he had intended for the next two years. However, Robb took it in stride, hitched up his britches and went off to basic training.

Robb spent 13 months in Korea, stationed at an Army post about 50 miles north of Seoul and not far from the demilitarized zone that splits Korea into North and South.
