Again, here is another lot of amazing items found on Ebay, that the seller split up. I bid on every lot and won all the letters. The seller did not know what they were and had no idea they were from a Doctor in the 101st Airborne. Based on the prices I paid, neither did anyone else.
Dr. Stanley E. Morgan was the Surgeon of the 3rd Bn. 506th Parachute Infantry and saw action in both Normandy and in Holland. In Normandy he was fortunate to have been liberated a few days after D-Day before the Germans had a chance to send him to a POW camp. In Holland he was not quite so lucky. In both occasions he was captured while staying with wounded men. He received the Bronze Star for his actions in Holland. The man was a hero.
After he was captured in Holland, he was sent to work in a POW hospital at Obermassfeld which was part of Stalag IXC. All 7 letters he wrote are from there and his wife numbered them on the front as she received them 1-7. You can tell from his letters he missed her dearly.
Dr. Morgan passed away in 2002. Rest in Peace Doctor .
I would like to thank Jake Powers for pointing me to this pic of Dr. Morgan. it was in "Tonight We Die as Men" by Ian Gardner
