A Two-Way Job On the Enemy

From an army evacuation hospital “somewhere in North Africa” Dr. and Mrs. Jos. Sharp of Kingsley received a letter from their son, Wyman Sharp. He says he is recovering nicely from his wounds, being hit three times in the leg and hip with bullets about the size of .30 caliber. He didn’t realize the extent of his injuries for about a week, and doesn’t know yet what did happen. Hill 609 was a terrific battle and “the Americans had to shoot the enemy going over, and bury ‘em a week later coming back,” the Kingsley News-Times reports.
