|PVT. EDWARD HASKINS
Private Edward Garry Haskins is now in Germany, according to the latest news received by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Haskins, formerly of Eau Claire, now living in southern California.
He received training with the Infantry in California and Camp Hood, TX.
After going overseas, he landed first in England; then went to France, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
According to his parents, Private Haskins writes that cities, like Aachen in Germany, are total ruins. He writes that civilians' household belongings are scattered in mud and that they have no place to sleep; nothing to eat. He tells that the snow is about gone, but the mud is bad. Private Haskins hopes "it is soon over, so we can get back to the good old USA."
