Bill's Letters Home
“A ‘rugged combat’ soldier guarding an entrance to a C.P.”
“Results of a day’s hunting, lined up at our battalion C.P. Just a few of the Master Racers who didn’t run fast enough.”
|France, September 1944|
"This is what made Jerry run."
|"The major's home. The clean doorway leads to the barn."|
|"Taken on the main street of ______, Luxenburg. All the animals live under the same|
roof with the family, but you notice there are different entrances. In the barn live
the chickens, horses, cows, pigs, and G.I.'s."
|"No, I didn't shoot the hole in the wall, but it was one of the minor bits of destruction|
before the Luxenbourg flag could be flown."
|"Typical Luxenbourg street scene taken from the door of a building where I once slept."|
|"The two most valuable weapons of the war- the jeep and the G.I., Just feed them both|
well and they'll go anyplace."
|"Hail the conquoring heroes came!"|
