Dick Waits – World War II Letter 2
Well I got your letter today both Vmail came right together, you said you received one of my letters I wrote three I hope you get the other two. I hope you never have to go back, I have spent a lot of time in the hospital an that is a good place to be. That inf. is rough I know only to well. I just hope my luck can hold out till this dam thing is over with. With Gods help an Russia this thing will be over before long. As for the lugers an P38s I have had a few but sold most of them to the Navy. I have a real little one that I am going to keep because it was made in Berlin. But if I can get my ass home I’ll be happy.
Take care of yourself an stay put. Well I don’t have a M1 but I am Gunner on the tank so I have a pretty good gun. It has made a lot of germans good ones.
Many thanks to Paul Hang for sending these letters. They are truly an invaluable piece of our family history.
