About Letter 121

To Bill's utter amazement he is transferred to the Infantry. He now is slated to go through infantry basic training. Rather than fearing the possibility of combat, Bill is convinced that he will never see active service in the ETO saying, "at least you don't have to worry about me going into's very doubtful that this war will last as long as the training."


  1. Is letter 120 a double letter? They appear to have been written a week apart.

  2. Oop's,

    Good catch. No, I mislabeled the letter of Sept. 17, 1944. It is letter 121. Thank you for pointing it out to me. I will make the correction. This letter marks a real turning point for Bill in his army career. Heaven forbid it should be mislabeled!
