Herman's last letter home noted:
( submitted by : Al W. )

" War is an awful, miserable thing. I wish it had never started. Even as I write this letter in a fox hole, shells and bullets are whizzing all around. Some of the shells are falling pretty close. If I ever come home, I'll never want to talk about some of the stuff I've seen or done....."
