HARPOLE Kester
The following V Mail letter from Cpl. Kester W. Harpole to the Nebo Victory Club will be of interest to everyone.
Nurenburg, Ger. August 9, 1945
Thanks for the gift. It arrived on my birthday and will be very useful. I cannot think of words to express my appreciation of all the gifts, letters and papers I have received from the Club, and of the Memorial park you are building for the men in service. It is wonderful to think of returning to a home where people are working together for a peaceful future. Prisoners are being released every day from our cage. They are going back and don't know if they have a home or family to return to or not. Quite a contrast, I think. I am O.K. and in the best of health. Of course I am like all the others, just wondering how soon I can return home. Seems ages since I saw Nebo last. We have plenty of food and everything, though conservation doesn't permit any waste over here. Thanks to all members and supporters of the Club. Keep the good work up.
Best Wishes, Ket
