Title:
Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer
Description:
Clint writes about their Christmas celebrations in Germany and laments his lack of mail from home. Harry Hoyt insisted on making them "milk punch," an alcoholic beverage with "a kick like a mule." One of the other lieutenants received news that he was being reassigned back to France, a cause for extra celebrations. He writes about their service chevrons and the inconsistency of their supplies.
