    Dewey writes from North Korea and has been getting the Speed-O-Meter newsletter that Jesse writes. Dewey says the weather is very hot. For the past two years, he has been driving a truck. One of them was blown up near Masan and the other was caught in an artillery road block. He said during the second incident he got hit, but it went through his pocket and hit his billfold. He says people have misconceptions about the reality of their daily lives in Korea and that most of the soldiers are sick of Korea. This letter is part of the Jesse G. Dorsey Korean War Correspondence collection. Dorsey was the Director of Recreation and Welfare and editor of the Speed-O-Meter newsletter for the Louisville Cement Company. Dorsey began sending monthly letters and the Speed-O-Meter to local service personnel during WWII. He continued this through the Korean War and for sometime afterwards. less
