Cho Han Chul, a 12 year old Korean boy known as "Sukoshi Joe"
by the men of the 167th Transportation Truck Bn. At
Pusan Army Port.
"Dear Lt. Wheeler,
"I received, thankfully, what you sent me
on 2nd of October 1954. Thank you very much, Lieutenant.
When I got that from Lt. Anderson, I could not express how I
was glad. What I was happy, then, was beyond words.
"While you here, when you said you gonna
send some clothes for me, that would not be believed by me.
But now indeed, that was really proved you are number one man
the man whom I can respect more than any others.
"In that evening, when I got it I gave the
clothes to my younger sister. She was jumping with joy like
small birds, therein I felt deeply appreciation appear from
the bottom of my heart.
"By the way, how are you, Lt.? I think you
are quite well. Aren't you.
"I remember you now as if you were in front
o me. I recall clearly. You remind me of your figure, and
of (? ings), too
"I here enclose, hoping your good health
and good luck Lt."
