WWII Letter, Camp Forrest Tennessee 204th Field Artillery

Written by a soldier at Camp Forrest Tennessee, in February 1943. He was with Battery D 204th Field Artillery.From the letter…….

Darling you know the nice way Alfred and I have of answering people back if they try to put one over on you. Well when I have to ask an officer a question and he tries to put one over me, I come back with an answer that makes his face turn red. Boy am I a devil with them, but that's the way they like you to be, because then they know no one can put anything over you.

Its now about two o’clock Tennessee time the weather is very good today considering that it rained all last night…….From your one and only husband to his one and only wife.....

Was he ever at Fort Benning, Ga.?

I found a photo of a Ralph Wright that was undated at Fort Benning. It is at: http://www.33rdinfantrydivision.org/Photos%20from%20Richard%20Glenn/album/index2.html

Good luck with your search.
