August 28, 1945
Your letter was received here at the Community House and we were happy to hear from you and to know that after months of duty overseas you recall with pleasure your visit here in Speed. We are glad for any little thing we were able to do to help make the time spent at Fort Knox a bit more pleasant.
Though there have been many more, I am sure, who have made the supreme sacrifice, so far we know of only two men who were guests here who were later killed in action. Can you give me the names of any of the fellows who attended the party with you who were killed in action? We would like to write their folks.
I have pictures of you and all the other fellows who attended that party, you know, and if you would like copies of any of them I will be glad to send them to you.
Knowing that the other folks here who have been so good about helping with our parties would like to read your letter and know how you feel, I published it in our little Company paper. Enclosed you will find a copy of the issue in which it was printed.
If you are ever again near Speed, I hope you will come in and see us.
