SAD SPECIMENS – A GI GRIPES ABOUT THE GRIPERS IN THE ARMY

Dear YANK:

I’ve often wondered where you get all your gripes and where the gripers found time to put their gripes on paper. Most of them are sad specimens in my opinion. In Africa, Sicily and from Normandy to Aachen I couldn’t find time to answer the correspondence of my family and friends. Now that I am no longer in combat, can sleep in a bed and eat off a table, I no longer have the face to gripe about anything—not even about not going home.
