February 27, 1944 Continuation of No. 6 Palermo, Sicily Dear Folksies,             Our boys finally had their baseball game with our friends the rival hospital. The latter expected us to be easy pickings, and, after our pitcher walked the first three men purposely, they were even more convinced that it would be a cinch. Imagine […]

February 26, 1944 No. 6 Palermo, Sicily Dear Folksies,          Everything has been purty slow during this last week. Bill Kuzell and I had a rushing business for some days there, everything in that line has calmed down and we could consolidate our three wards into one if we so desired.          Have felt fine, […]

February 8, 1944 Conclusion of No. 2 Palermo, Sicily Dear Folksies,             You should have seen me the other night. Not having slept well, and having been up rather late for several nights in a row, I decided that I would take some sodium amytal and go to bed early and get a good sleep, […]

February 5, 1944 No. 2 Palermo, Sicily Dear Folksies,             Gee, I didn’t realize that so much time had elapsed since my last epistle to you, but I have really been kept plenty busy. Tho’ most of the hospital has been going along pretty much on an even keel, I, for some reason or other […]
