CORPORAL JOHNSON STATIONED OVEI~F_,AS The following are excerpts of let- ters received by Judge Albert W. Johnson of Lewlsburg from his son, Corporal Paul E. Johnson, farmer Mifflinburg Attorney, who is attach- ed to a Tank Destroyer Battalion in France: '~he battle of Normandy 'is over, and the battle of Brittany has be- gun. There is little that I can tell you, but you van get most of the news from the newspapers. We now are moving more rapidly as we gain more territory and have additional: troops to engage the enemy. "Brittany, unlike Normandy, is more favor~tble for offensive war- fare and ,having gained mtmentum, as welt as experience, we should roll along in more rapid fashion. "Brittany is quite nice country with large open fields, hills and ~alleys. It is rich in agriculture; all kinds of grain and vegetables as well as many apple orchards. Nor- mandy is worM-famous for cattle and dairy products. Brittany seems to have about everything. The wheat is a golden type and they are now in the process of cutting and shocking it. Much of the farm work is done by old men and young girls. '~Fhe people here are much more friendly and enthusiastic in the re- ception of the American soldiers. From a distance I hear the church bells ringing in a small town that we took this morning. The people crowd the streets throwing flowers at us and offering us wine and "cider as we pass by. The people in Nor- mandy seemed to be more friendly to the Germans than the people here. (Letter written August 15) "Now I may tell you ,that our out- fit took part in the battle of Caren- tan. This may not be news to you as it was some while back. Since then we have been participating con- stantly with but a few days rest in about six weeks. We are right in the thick of it all the time and doing a good job. That is about all I can tell you. I~ is really a rugged life. There is never a dull moment I can't say that it is v~ry interesting but it is very thrilling and exciting to say the least. It is now getting dark so I shall have to continue this later. Jerry will sOon be overhead and I must pepare. "Lots more has happened since I had to leave this letter. I hope I can complete it at this sitting. We may get a day of rest after a rather long and steady job well done. "1 miss atl of you so very much and am very anxious to get home. :I certainly hope we do not have to go to the Pacific from here." "1 often regret that I am unable to relate so little of my experiences in France ,as I know they would in- terest all of you to some degree, md to some of you they would be of especial interest and significance. I :hall have to postpone my narrative r.pon these subjects until a later and ;afer date. "I can say that the part of France n which I now find myself but per- haps not for long is a very beautiful country not unlike Pennsylvania with the exception that there are no mountains. The country is a green rich farmland capable of raising every sort of foodstuff. Here 1 might state thai the stories of starvation in France are absolutely false, even in the cities as la.rge as Paris. For the latter statement 1 refer you to Ernie Pyle the war correspondent who has not seen quite as much of France as I have but has ,been to Paris. Gen- erally the French people much to my amazement and contrary to my opin- ion before coming here, are a hand- some, well built, sturdy race. Nev- er have I seen so many beautiful girls in all my life. The same is true of the Children. With a poss- ible exception of the peasants in ~qormandy they are well fed, healthy and are exceedingly meticulous about their dress and appearance. Above all most of them are very friendly and overjoyed to see the American soldiers. Some few are Nazi sympa- thizers but for the most pa~t hate the Germans whom they have had to tolerate for the .past four years. "According to the home papers ~lhings are moving over here with great rapidity. This is true but there is a lot to be done yet and the end is not as near as you might tlMnk from the headlines." VISITING PA~ENTS ~Private Reed M. (Jack) Hoffman, who has completed basic training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, is visiting his parents, Mr. ,and Mrs. Melvin Hoff- man. The youth, who volunteered for Army duty, left with the Union County Contingent of Selectees April 25, 1944.
