Chet Letters – June 20, 1952


Betty & June,

I’m here and all I can say is its no damn good for anything, you’ve got to see it to believe it. This mess is more senseless every day that I stay here and the g**k government is a itchiban(?) SOB same as that big Mo. mule in DC.

The last two weeks the 40th & 45th Div. have been catching number one hell up at Chowan & Kumsong so there may be more boys from home getting hurt if they are in those outfits.

I don’t know how long I’ll stay here as a carpenter but its only getting two points and I would rather take a change on 4 up on the line. No mail for a while so I don’t know what is going on in the states or at home with the “problem”.

Don’t forget to write and let me know how things are. Tell Wendy hello.

/s/ Chet
