I'm scanning my father's letters to my mother during WWII. My father shipped out in 1942. I'm now scanning letters dated September 9, 1944. This particular letter said that he had been in the hospital for battle fatigue. He realized later he had a shrapnel wound. D-Day was in June 1944. He wrote in a letter that when they said good bye at Union Station they had no idea he would be over seas for two years. Dad had been at the front for 55 days. My father didn't return home until January 1946. The letters talk about life in the field; what they ate; saw; life in general.
