This is Another Letter Written from Margie Poulson to Gene Farrow's Mother
June 21, 1944
Dear Mrs. Farrow,
Although you don't know me, I am acquainted with Gene, and Bud my husband is on the same crew. He is the radio-man. I received your address from Kay Andersen, when she spent last week with me.
I was at Tampa and Lakeland with Bud, and Gene came in quite after with him. He's such a nice kid.
I have been wondering if you have received word
that Gene is a German prisoner. I received a telegram June 8, but as yet I haven't received his address. So I have ________ to look forward to.
This morning I received a letter from one of the ground crew. He said they were coming from a raid when several engines were shot out and they "ditched" the plane. He also said they had received word that they were all prisoners and O.K.--except one--and one
of the crew was in the "Underground Farres". But I don't know how he would ever find that out. But I'm so glad to know their O.K. I really think--if the Germans treat them well--they are better off than flying on these missions every day.
"Mac", from Pittsburgh, is also a prisoner, and Saturday his folks received his address.
And they have heard that Stanley Gampel, the bombadier, is
also a prisoner.
I will be so glad when this thing is over, and they're all back--as is everyone else.
I will close now, hoping to hear from you soon.
Mrs. Deyrell Poulson
