Doughnuts, and a Witty Line of Chatter
Photos and Letters of Helen Stevenson Meyner in Japan and Korea, 1950-1952
Libby Turner, Woody Kintz, and
Helen Stevenson with four Puerto Rican patients.
Johnson Air Base, March 1951.
I do a little
bit of everything in the hospital. I talk to patients (incidentally the
majority of the patients are not in bed but hang around the lounge here
at the hospital)...drink gallons of coffee, wrap packages, take the patients
over to entertainment at the Special Services club. I arrange card games
& ping-pong tournaments. I'm even in charge of the birthday party for
all the patients this Friday. I'm arranging a talent show and musical games
for it. The boys are so cute, so young and most of them scared silly that
they will be sent back to Korea (and I'm afraid they will be).
