Re: 16 December 1943
A letter to the editor in Sunday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch is the only mention of the start of the Battle of the Bulge. No mention of it appears anywhere else within this past weekend's or last week's editions of the paper. There is a memorial service at Jefferson Barracks Cemetery ( St. Louis) today at 10:00 which I'll attend. I fear that it won't be too many years before less than 1% of the public will have even heard of the battle or its significance. Hopefully I'm wrong.
