Description

Presented are three bookplates autographed by two Korean War Veterans including Hank Buttlemann and Cecil Foster.

Hank Buttlemann is a retired fighter pilot of the United States Air Force in the Korean War and Vietnam War. He achieved seven victories over enemy aircraft in Korea, making him a flying ace. He gained his fifth kill on June 30, 1953, just after his 24th birthday, which made him the youngest ace of the war. He was sent to Korea in December 1952, flying as a wingman in the F-86 Sabre jet against MiG-15s in “MiG Alley.”, the area around the border between North Korea and China. He shot down his first plane on June 19 of the next year, and he scored his fifth victory eleven days later. He added two more in July, days before the end of hostilities. He served two tours during the Vietnam War, flying the F-105 Thuderchief and F-100 Super Sabre. He retired from the Air Force in 1979 after a career total of 286 combat missions.

Cecil Foster joined the Army Air Forces as an enlisted man in 1943. In 1950 he received his wings and commission, and became an F-86 fighter pilot in Korea. There he was credited with shooting down NINE enemy aircraft, becoming a Korean War ACE. He commanded the 390th Tactical Fighter Squadron in Vietnam, and subsequently retired in 1975 as a U.S. Air Force Colonel.
