Letter Home – September 18, 1944

19440918-Lscan-600Dear Mother & Dad

Just a line to let you know I’m Okea. I had a letter from Eddie Hort the other day so maybe I’ll get to see him soon. Things are about the same except things are getting harder to get now as the Germans are taking everything. There is still plenty of potatoes though, so we are having potatoes cooked every way we can think of. These “C” rations & 10 in 1 rations just don’t agree with us, so most of us do our own cooking. We get bread once in awhile also meat, milk and eggs. You should taste some of my vegetable soup. It would just about compare with yours. We bought a piece of meat the other day about the size of a bowl or about 2 1/2 pounds and it cost us $4.00. But money is no good to us here anyway. Sorry that I have so little to say. Joe Waters is on his way back to the company from the hospital. He should be here in a few days. Goodbye & say hello to everyone as I have little time to write.

Your Son,
