A letter to Gene's (Engineer) Mother from Bud's (Radio Operator) Wife
July 7. 1944
Dear Mrs. Farrow,
I have been wondering if you have received any more word from the War Dept. I hope you have heard that Gene is a prisoner or safe, but I know a lot of time it seems to take so long.
Last week I received a letter from Maj. General N.F. Twining Commander of the 15th Air Force. He informed me that Bud has been awarded the Air Medal and two oak leaf clusters. This letter contained quite a bit of information -- That on May 10--they were bombing aircraft factories at Weiner-Neustadt, Austria. last seen the ship
was under Central, although it was slowly losing altitude in the vicinity of Zagreb, Yugoslavia.
Clifford Smith's (Smitty's) folks have not yet received word that he is a prisoner either. But I know you won't give up.
I have not received Bud's address, so I have something to look forward to.
Please let me know any news you receive.
Mrs. D.F. Poulson
