    WW2 Era Letter written by Soldier informing his mom that he was injured in combat.
    The letter reads:

    “Aug 22 1944, Monday

    Dear Mom.
    Well how goes everything
    with you all? Swell I hope.
    Im now in a nice little hospital
    as the result of a piece a shrapnel
    I tred to stop the other. I guess
    It was a little to tough for me.
    I got hit in the neck below the
    chin with a piece about the size
    of the end of my thumb. It’s all
    fixed up now and healing. Its a little
    sore but it will be back to normal
    in a little while. Im hoping
    this gets home before the notice
    from the W.D does. I knew if you
    received a notice that I was hurt
    you be nauseous not hearing from
    me so if you get this first disregard
    the other and please don't wory.

    Im getting plenty a sleep now
    and its sure good after getting only
    2 to 4 hours of sleep for more than
    a month. This morning we had
    a small lunch service and it was
    really good. This afternoon we
    had a u.s.o Show which wasn’t
    too bad. All in All I have had
    a busy day and now am a little
    tired so I think Ill try for some
    sleep. So long for now,

    love
    Bill”

    Nice letter. Shows a side of the war we don't see often.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
