My dearest Eloise,
Seems like every day I'm stuck in the trenches. It's no luxury. Sometimes the only thing to look forward to is the newspaper. Charlie bit the dust Saturday. Walked right in front of our tank as we fired some test artillery.
Oh, well. He's a goner but it was an important reminder to us all.
You know, they have Coca Cola out here! I nearly wet my trousers when they told us.
How's your family? I know they always hated me, but this is my chance to prove myself once and for all.
All these men found a way to be comfortable with me and I with them. Move forward I must.
Whatever happens here, I trust you. I hear you bobbed your hair!!
Keep Blake by the fire...

|Comments:||Hello, I came about your website while in search of my great grandfather and his brother...what a wonderful wonderful site you have! Im 35, and obessed with family history! I tell my grandmother I think I was born in wrong time! Ive been looking so so long online, and Im about to conclude there is nothing!;) She is 88yrs old, and Ive been writing down every story she can think of, and, she dreams of finding a picture of her father, and his brother Douglas. Her father worked on the railroad her in La and died when she was yound. His brother died in WWI, and that is all she knows of him. Their parents died young and raised by their grandparents...and my grandmother as no idea their names. Just where born. I suppose you dont have any good information on websites I could search? I tell you I have a headache from search;) just no good records out there. I oh how Id love to surprise my grandmother but think Ive hit deadend! WWI is hard to research...Ive found of course tons of information on soldiers of WWII..which found more information of my great uncle who was the private pilot for president-elect eisenhower during the war! And found my other grandmothers brother who won medals in the Korean War for his mission he did, and sadly killed in action. If there is any website you could recommend Id be so greatful. Thank you and wonderful reading, I read them to my grandmother and she had tears! People just arent like that anymore! Well, thanks for letting me write and have a blessed weekend.

|Comments:||For my history class I had to write a letter that was being sent home from and officer serving in France. I wasn't sure where to start but then I searched for examples and found these. It helped me a lot because I wasn't sure how to put feeling into my letters. I want to say thank you! These are amazing to read, not only for learning purposes but just to gain a better understanding of how things used to be.|

Thoroughly enjoying reading the letters.

|Comments:||I haven't read all the letters as of yet.
However the few that I have I have found very interesting.
So I will be putting this site on my favourites so I can return and read at leisure.
My own grandfather was a sapper with the royal engineers and was serving in France In 1917.
Though I have no photographs, or letters of him during that time.
What a wonderful legacy your Grandfather left you.
How fortunate to be able to read such a human and personal account.
Best wishes Theresa Morrow.

|Comments:||How precious are the letters. It is wonderful to have the affirmation that those fighting in WW 1 were born again believers who understood the concept of strength through military victory.
I can see them all together again in heaven. Thanks for printing them. I am a 73 yr old college student. I am doing research for my final history project. It's called, "war though my eyes." I have chosen WW 1. I was trying to find information on a young man named Goff L Shroyer who died during the war. Not too much luck.

|Comments:||I love your website. The letters your grandfather wrote during WWI are a real treasure. Would you mind terribly if I reprinted some of them in my small newspaper? It's a country paper which advertises auctions in Ontario and has been going since 1935. Our readers are mostly elderly, and would feel such a connection to your grandfathers letters.
Let me know if this would be okay. I'd love to include a link to your website, so they may enjoy your entire collection.

|Comments:||I really enjoyed reading the letters and I appreciate you sharing them. After having been in the service for many years and with my husband still in the service, I can relate to the lonely feelings, writing many letters to feel in touch with back home (before computers). It's amazing what he went through and the enduring long distance love. A true love story!|
