MK note: Here is the "Merry Christmas" card mentioned by Msg Burke in "The Story" part of his Entry #30 into the Bunker on IBB Page Four. That entry is linked to below. MK.
It is Christmas and you are far from home, suffering from cold , not knowing when you will die.
The big shots are home enjoying themselves, eating good food and drinking good liquor. Why should you be here risking your life for their profits? The Koreans and Chinese don't want to be your enemies. Our enemies and yours are those who sent you here and destroyed your happiness.
Soldiers! Let's join hands! You belong back home with those who love you and want you back, safe and sound. So we wish you ...........
MK note: He also got this cheerful greeting card that Christmas. MK.
