My Dearest Mother Bro & Sis,
Just received your most welcome letter today and sure was pleased to get it as I was sure anxious to hear how good old Dad was, as soon as I got the letter I took it over to the Priest and he recommended me to see the O.C. of this Hospital. So I'll see him tomorrow morning at ten and see what's what. It hurt me a lot to hear of Dad's accident.
Jerry wrote and told me but for some reason or other I just couldn't believe it but I guess all we can do now is pray God real hard that he may recover real soon. I wrote him a few letter's from here and I do hope he'll get them alright. But I'll give you's a little tip as I know quite a bit about amputated limbs when Dad get's back home and it's healed fairly well get him to do a lot of exercising will help limb like moving his shoulder around, Much more than hope for the best. I'll write again soon after I see the O.C. and find out.
Till then may God bless you all dear ones and keep smiling this War will soon wind up to an end.
So here's wishing you all the best of luck
Your Son & Bro. Buck xxxx
