John Batchelder audio interview on experiences in World War II (transcript)
Creator: Batchelder, John
Date: 30 March 2007
John Batchelder enlisted in the Army in March 1946 and was sent to Camp Robinson in Little Rock, Arkansas, for basic training. Upon graduation, he was assigned to the 5250th Technical Intelligence Company and sent to Camp Pendleton, California, before being sent to Toyko, Japan. He served as the motor sergeant in charge of the motor pool for the 5250th General Headquarters Company and was also in charge of training and licensing military personnel to drive the Company's jeeps, automobiles, and trucks. The motor pool staff performed maintenance on General Headquarters Company vehicles but replacement parts were scarce. He was discharged from the Army in 1947. He was interviewed by Suzette McCord-Rogers on Mar 30, 2007. He was born on a farm south of Hiawatha on January 27, 1921. He graduated from Hiawatha High School and from Highland Junior College in 1941. He returned to farming near Denton, Kansas, after the war. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original audio copy of the interview is available through the Doniphan County Historical Society (Troy) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
