KIA WORLD WAR II
April 3, 1943
... A guy gets in some serious
thinking out here... Sometimes when I
happen to be walking along alone, say for
instance at night, I stop and say,"Well,
Bob, you are in a heck of a fix. What are
you doing here? Do you remember how
you laughed at the iea of ever bearing
arms...? It's the fellows that have gone
before us who make us willingly bear
our burdens. Dear God, spare our lives.
for we are young and love life so much.
This is just a short incident in a fellow's
life, I tell myself, and soon it will be
behind me an I will have forgotten it,
and settle own among you all again.
....This is one game I'm going to beat,
I know. When I played baseball I never
wanted to sit on the bench, always
wanted to play the whole game. And here
too, I'm going out every time, and while
I'm playing this game, I'm going to play
hard, and to win.
