Dearest Mother,

    Just a few lines letting you know that I'm O.K. and hoping that everyone at home is in good health also.

   I'm still on the front lines mother, but still as yet having it pretty easy. We're still being molested with artillery shells once in a while but so far we've been pretty lucky.

   Mother, how is everyone at home? I haven't received any letters for a few days now and I've just been wondering if anything is wrong.

   As for me mother, I'm in perfect health, so please don't worry about anything, and tell daddy not to worry either mother.

   Mother, does daddy's arm ever bother him? I'm hoping and praying that it doesn't.

   Well mother, I guess this is all for now so I'll close with lots of love to you mother dear, daddy and the kids.

   Your loving Son,

Declassified Headquarters Reports, 350th Infantry, March 1944:

March 18 to 21. Enemy action was light.

March 21-23. One enemy aircraft strafed parts of the regimental area. Nebelwerfer fire was again received on our lines. Three converging azimuths were reported by OPs and artillery fire silenced the enemy gun.

March 24-27. The enemy has continued to place nebelwerfer fire on our lines at irregular intervals. Known casualties from nebelwerfer fire has been nil and such fire has not lowered the morale of the troops.

March 28-31. The 350th Infantry was relieved by the 339th Infantry to go to a rest area (vicinity of Cascano, Italy) during this period. The entire relief was made under the cover of darkness.
