Auszug aus einem Brief nach Hause:
"Honey, this infantry sure is tough and I don't mean maybe. 

I've done things here that I never thought I could do. 

Only God and the soldier know what war is and what a man goes through. 

I have prayed more in a few minutes here than I have in all my life".

Gedicht für seine Tochter Joan:
Here's a hello from your Daddy a guy who's far away from home
But I'm thinking of you Baby no matter where I roam
Baby, how I long to see you safe there in your mother's arm
But I'm happy, dear, just knowing that you're there away from harm
I know you look just like your mother and have a smile just like hers too
If you'll be as grand a lady I'll be mighty proud of you...
It may be years before you see me because I have a job to do
Then when it's done we'll be together just three, Mother, Dad, and you
