Letters From Ray: A World War II Army Private's Letters Home - Pt 5

April 4, 1944
Dear Mom and Dad,

I lost my wallet in Palermo just two day before I left the ?dryyoue town and I really miss it…so had all the pictures your sent and plenty of cards.  Damn this war.
                                                                                                Love Ray.

 [SM1]Page 9.  Sounds like he is starting to get worn down a bit from the untimely loss of his wallet.

"Jesus Saves" either ironic or peace of mind, depending on how you look at it.

(end of letter)

Observations by Opa Fritz

1) Ray spoke of 'Angio' beach head which is of course 'Anzio'  beach head in Italy.
