Now Serving in Italy
A letter received by the Guy Haskells from their son, Pfc. Milford, says he is now serving with the quartermasters's corps in Italy. Milford said he was O.K. but his biggest kick was that mail from home was slow in reaching him. He received a whole bundle of Lowell Tribunes in one mail recently.
This Lowell Tribune article was found in the August 1, 1946, issue (page 5, column 4):
S/Sgt. Milford Haskell, who has been stationed at Camp Kilmer, N.J., is here visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Haskell. This is his first trip home in over three and one-half years. Milford was overseas for many months and saw service in Africa, Italy, France and Germany. He has re-enlisted for another year, and will report at Ft. Sheridan, Ill., when his furlough is completed.
