Re: PVT Jerome W Miller
Thank you so much. I have been going over family info that my late father had collected and through letters that Jerome had written became interested in finding out more about his time in service. He was in the ATSP program at Drexel in PA they closed that down and he was sent back to the troops as he put it. went to camp Claiborn and so on. I have some photos but the letters are the most interesting. The last one home tells his mother to buy herself some flowers for the holidays. My father was also in Europe at the time and in communications. He got caught in the Bridge too far affair and the buldge among other things.
He never said much about his experiences but in a telling letter when my grandmother told him about
his brother being killed he said He felt bad of course but he lived with it everyday and he really did not feel much of anything.
Well thanks for the info and I have purchased the book. I know it is impossible to pinpoint every detail but at least I now have a very good idea of what happened. I only wish I could have shared this with my father who passed in 1983.
