Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

Item Information

Title:
Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer
Description:
Clint received Rhea's letters from late October, and has heard that those divisions sent over first will be first to return, so he is hopeful. He's put on weight since he left home, and he now weighs 140 lbs. He's living with two other men in a culvert under a road, one end of which they've blocked off with dirt and the other they have a canvas tarp over. He heard good news from home, that Frank returned for two weeks of leave and was able to donate blood to their father, who is doing much better. He saw Lloyd again, who wants Rhea to write to him if she has the time. Lloyd was glad that he made it out of the war in one piece, since the fighting was so bad on the second to last night that he thought he would die. Clint has bought her Christmas gift but he won't say what it is and will keep her in "suspenders" about it.
