The telegram (below) was sent from Egypt. My parents didn't hear from me until they got this telegram. My last letter before leaving for overseas was written in November 1942. It was a long wait for my parents. They didn't hear from my brother during the same time period. He was in the first wave of the North African invasion, landing near Casablanca.
