Jan. 29, 1943
Sgt. John Clarys wrote this letter to his sister Anna while
still on Guadalcanal before being evacuated to Fiji for R & R in March 1943. He had to be circumspect in what he wrote, however, he does say it is warm there and wishes for some “cold weather that you get there in good old N. Dak.”
“All I can do is hope & pray that some day I will get back there”.
