This isan interestingand emotional original WWIIV-Mail letter, writtenon the front lines in Normandy, in July1944, by a soldier who served in combat in the 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, which landed at Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6th, 1944. There is content in this letter about the hardships and hazards of frontline service. This soldier. who was fighting in his third major campaign,writesthat he was tired ofdodging bullets, planes, and artillery, and of being unable to light a cigarette in the open for fear that the enemy might see it.Heexpresses resentmentthat hewas still fighting after two yearswhile millions of other men in the army had never yet been in combat. He adds that the people at home in the United States had noideawhat soldiers in combat had to endure:

"I still miss you sweetheart, and it hurts very much when you can't do anything about it.... 2 years over here is enough for anybody... I guess somebody has to be over here though. And then, I often wonder where the 8 million other men are they have in this army. I'm tired of this life over here, dodging bullets, planes, and artillery. I'd like to smoke a cigarette without having to hide so the enemy can't see it. If the people back there could only see the hell the men have to go through I think they would wake up."
