Infantrymen's Life Described in Letter from Chestnut Man The following article was pub- lished in an area newspaper- Springfield or Decatur. The letter was dated December 30, 1944. Wilbur was the father of Walter, Greg; Curtis, and Jody Maus. Wilbur was the husband of Fern Maus. Pfc. Wilbur J. Maus, an infan- tryman serving with General Terry Allen in the 1042 infan- try division on the Westem front, has written an interesting description of the life of a foot soldier, in a recent letter to his parents, Mr. & Mrs. John C. Maus of Chestnut. He described eating his boun- tiful Thanksgiving dinner in a German building, which his group had captured. "We are sleeping in houses now, and beds out of the rain, snow and cold for a change we have a German stove going full blast and it is heaven to what is out- side. The electric lights don't work as we blew up every house and none of them are complete, not even the one we are in now. We have a German victrola playing with German records, a German alarm clock to wake us, and this paper I am writ- ing on is also German. We are lying here on mattresses by the fire, having a wonderful time drinking American grapefruit juice and smoking cigarettes and talking about home and the wonderful times we will all have again. The good Lord is at my side and I pray for you all and to come home safe and soon." "While I was in combat in Belgium and Holland, we slept in rain and mud for days at a time and were lucky to see the next daylight when those shells light so close to you when those shells light so close you shake up and down and pray they don't hit you. After the first week you get used to it, but you still hit the foxhole when they come close. I got your most delicious box the other night and we all ate it as we are brothers over here, when one gets a home box we split it up." "I have seen beautiful country and some absolutely vanished towns (from our bombing, artil- lery, and cannon). Brussels was a very beautiful city and really up to date in style - I went there on a pass. Germany has fine equipment in the homes, but nearly as nice and good-looking as ours." The most recent letter received from Pfc. Maus was dated December 30 and he was still in Germany.
