Letter Home – September 6, 1944

19440906-Lscan-600Dear Mother & Dad

It has been some time since my last letter but it can’t be helped. The Germans are retreating fast and we stay right behind them. I did have one lucky break. Our truck broke down and we stayed in a place for about 3 1/2 days. I met some swell people & a very nice girl. I think if I would have been there much longer I would have fallen in love, ha, ha. The people treated us like Kings. I could have ran for town mayor & won easily. Everyone in the village knew my name and they called me “Charley” as they spelled it. We went to mass and after mass the people followed us around like I don’t no what. The priest invited us in for a glass of wine and we ever drank the wine that was used in the mass. I’ll never for get that village as long as I live. Joe Pryz, Tony’s brother was with me. I must have really had the poor girl snowed under as she cried like a baby when I said good-bye to her and her folks.

Well I guess that’s all that I know to write about now. Say hello to everyone for me. Believe me I have never in my life seen country so beautiful. I can’t get over it. By By for now and don’t worry at the rate we’re going the war should end soon.

Your Son,
