"Eniwetok, 2-24-44
Dear Folks:
Just a line to let you know that Herman is OK. A few more lines to tell you that he was outstanding in combat and an inspiration to his fellowmen. Many a dead Jap will remember Herm's determined look as he did the job. He is truly a credit to any organization and, thank God, he's in mine.
Richard M. Pfuhl, Lieutenant
