He states in one letter (January 14, 1941) that he was not happy to have been drafted, and frequently mentions throughout other letters that he desired to return home. Correspondence from overseas service reassures his parents that he is alright and that he hoped to be home soon. One letter (January 14, 1944) mentions having several letters returned due to censor violations, and another letter (December 25, 1944) describes his Christmas celebrations. A letter, dated August 6, 1944, is the only letter that describes combat; mentioning being caught in artillery fire and being strafed by German aircraft.
