      • On his guest appearance on the Bob Hope television show, General Dean said his experience of five Christmases in Korea made him hope there would "never again be a tragedy like Korea". He said he was "haunted by the fear that war is man's great sickness and that the epidemic will break out again and again". General Dean said he was afraid that "to so many of our own people the terrible holocaust that burned and ravaged Korea was a fire too far away to give them a sense of real danger." Describing the "almost total destruction" that afflicted the Korean people, he urged that something be done for them "while the spirit of Christmas is making its annual pilgrimage to our hearts."
