American Troops March Through Belfast

American Troops March Through Belfast

Dear Jean and Jerry,

I see you all had a nice Xmas and St Nick was good to you. I certainly miss all that good food you had over the holidays.

I just returned from Belfast and had a nice time. Most of it was spent sight seeing of both the city and the Colleens. There are some nice ones too and seem to be Americanized since the Yankees have been around. I went to a dance (all American swing) and they are marvelous dancers. Everyone dances the same and they have many variations of dances they do. It is quite different from our types.

The Red Cross is doing a magnificent job for the servicemen and they provide all eating and sleeping accommodations. Don’t fail to give to that organization.

I am feeling fine and hope both of you are. Naturally I miss everything and everyone but hope and faith still endures in us all.

Brother, Beany”
