Betty Corey was the childhood sweetheart of Penny Pennington. They grew up together and Betty developed a crush on the intelligent young man, but her father Colonel Corey did not approve of him. The two drifted apart when Penny enlisted in the military and ended up fighting in both World War II and the Korean War.

Following the ceasefire in Korea in 1953, Betty accompanied her father to that country in 1954. There she was reunited with Penny, but their reunion was rocky due to the intervention of Sargent Pulaski who was assigned to keep an eye on Betty on base by her father, and who was also trying to romance Betty. When the pair were captured by Chinese guerrilla soldiers still active despite the ceasefire, Penny rescued them using the contents of Betty's purse[1].

Betty remained on base for the remainder of the American occupation of South Korea and was regularly rescued by Penny whenever she got into trouble.
