BENNETT REPORTED RECOVERING FROM WOUNDS - Corporal Bernard Bennett, son
of Wilbur Bennett of Quimby, was reported making normal improvement
following serious wounds received during the Italian campaign.
Bernard's father received an official letter from the War Department reporting this:
am pleased to inform you that a report has been received from the
theater operations that on Jan. 15, your son, Corporal Bernard L.
Bennett was making normal improvements. You have my assurance
that when additional information is received showing a change in his
condition, you will be notified immediately.
Adjutant General J.A. Ptio
terse messages were all too common during the war years. Anxious
families awaited additional information to confirm their worst fears or
to set their minds at rest.
