Letter Home – August 24, 1944

19440824a-Lscan-600Dear Mother & Dad

Sorry for not writing more often but I’m afraid you will have to settle for a letter every now and then. The news papers should tell you that we are pretty busy.

This country is very nice. The people are clean the houses are kept up. Th the climate is swell. I just can’t describe it to you. In Italy everything was dirty. Here there is a clean fresh smell, more like home, out in the country.

The people are more fan and glad to see us and the Free French are doing a swell job of helping us along. 19440824b-Lscan-600They help in pointing out where the Germans are and also go up into the mountains and bring down prisoners themselves.

Ha, ha, I have to left one day I saw some French women shave the head of another French woman. I guess she was too friendly with the German to stop oh. It took quite a few women to hold her down, but they finally got it shaved off.

I know everyone is expecting a letter from me but tell them I will catch up as soon as I can. Like I said before I am kept busy and so far I have only wrote two letters and both of them have been to you and dad. At the rate we are moving this war should be over pretty soon.

Well I know that each day we move it brings us that much closer to home. I can’t understand why the Germans don’t give up and save a lot of lives. They know they are be it they keep bright on fighting.

I have received mail once since I have been here, so one of these days I should get an armful. I saw a kid from home yesterday. Brent Knoeicher. The last time I saw him was at Anzio. He was in a signal outfit. Well guess I had better quit for today. I’ll write again soon. Goodbye don’t worry, and I love you both very much.

Say hello to everyone for me.

Your Son,
