1944-1945 Letter Lot (43) WWII US Army 16th Infantry Belgium GermanyInteresting group of letters (32 handwritten/typed, 11 V-mail), written by a soldier in the US Army to a young lady friend in Brooklyn, NY. Very well written letters deal with army life and usually include a bit of humor. There is a bond of friendship more than romance, and he offers a lot of "big brother" advice to her. There are a couple letters in late 1944 from Fort Mead, but by late December 1944 he is in Belgium in a Replacement Company (apo 153) and by February 1945 he is in the 16th Infantry (apo 1). The 16th is a part of the 1st Army and they are moving through Germany, reaching Czechoslovakia at war's end in May 1945. He stays very positive for the most part, not saying anything to alarm his friend. In April there is a comment about "chasing the Hinkles" and FDR's death. About 12 letters are June 1945 to early 1946 where he is part of the early occupation force, performing as a vocalist with the 1st Army band! The letters all are attached by staple to their original envelopes, which have been opened flat. About 4 letters from late 1944 early 1945 in Belgium have some old water or weather stains...in most cases the writing is still legible. Vast majority of the letters are in very nice condition. The V mail letters (11) are all from Europe in December 1944 or early 1945.Free US Priority Mail shipping. Normal mailing dates are Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
