Letters from Harold J. Dahl
[sometime in September 1945]
Dear Mom & Lou,
Well, tomorrow I go to Camp Shelby, Mississippi, darn it. That seems such a waste of transportation to send us all so far down south when it should be only a matter of weeks before we come back up again for discharge. I can’t understand the Army - never could.
Had a quiet week-end, mostly getting ready for the move. Best thing will be if you do not write until you get my new address. We are being sent to the 28th Infantry Division, probably temporary assignment.
I am enclosing an address list for you to save for me - I had it made up last week & gave a copy to each man.
There is no other news to give you - I’ll write again when I get down there -
