Larry Skonie violated the Army's cardinal rule: Never volunteer for anything.
The obsolete, World War II-era Army truck John R. Rattray Sr. called home for a year in Korea was "the most important vehicle we had" because GIs like their chow, the Korean War veteran said.
Korean War veteran Manoly Traycoff didn't take a nationally known pop singer's vow seriously, but he took an induction center Army officer at his word.
