[KOREAN-WAR-L:11306] Re: (no subject)
I recall that my first day on the MLR ( my 2nd day in Korea ) it was 5 degrees , that was in early Dec 1951 . I recall that because my CO just sent me a copy of a book that he wrote and he mentioned that in the book . I guess he knew I just know it was dang cold .

I recall after they deloused us with DDT
They burned our cloths and we got our first shower in over four months . I was in Korea eight months and during that time I got
three showers and three changes of cloths .
Jerry, who did you guys know? You did better than my unit. We had to use a stream if it was warn enough.

That sounds pretty bad. I imagine the summers are hot and humid too. How cold did it get?
P.S. I guess I respond to an old thread here BTW, from about three weeks ago...
