My Dearest Rebecca,
I am writing to you today to tell you that if I make it back to the United States,I will never forget you nor cease to love you, be rest assured. Do not worry about me and all the ladies here in France. My heart is irrevocably locked and is yours forever. I appreciate the fact that you and the ladies from the Memorial Association were in our hometown erecting the Monument for Soldiers this past fortnight. I will always remain proud and loyal to you.
