This isa soldier's an infantryman who was killed in action inNormandy three months later. This soldier died of wounds in France on the 11th of July, 1944,while serving in Company B, 1st Battalion, 60th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division.

*** This handwritten V-Mail letter sheet was written by PrivateCortland Kester, of Buffalo, New York, who died of wounds in Normandy on the 11th of July, 1944. Private Kester wrote this letter shortly before being assigned to the 60th Infantry Regiment.

There is interesting content in this letter, whichPrivate Kesterwrote to his mother on the 2nd of April, 1944. He explains that he had been ill and adds that the army was doing nothing to help. He had not been able to eat since he had been home (referring to his final leave beforedeparting for the Port of Embarkation).

"I don't feel so hot today. My heart hurts like heck from coughing so much, and I can't seem to stop coughing once I start... Gee, I feel lousy. I'm really sick and they don't do anything for me. I can't eat anything. Since I've been home I can't look a meal straight in the face. I don't know what the heck's the matter with me."

A scarce original WWIIletterwritten by an American infantryman who was killed in action in Normandy.

***Where I havequoted fromthe letter in this listing I havemade some minor corrections to spelling and grammar. I have taken care not to alter Private Kester's meaning in any way.

Onesmall section of the letter sheet has been cut out, probably by the censor.He removeda section marked "V-Mail", probably because this letter was being sent as regular mail.
