I was told by Pauline that his foot locker was misplaced for a time, and he came home wearing an enlisted mans overcoat.

The 1:25,000 Stolberg map is great.  For me tactical maps really establish a physical location where events took place for troops.

I just recently realized that the day Captain Morrison's capture flag was in the Pittsburgh Press was the day he was wounded.

A letter from Marie Doan to Pauline Morrison shortly before D-day.

It's a little hard to read due to bleed thru from the opposite page.
