“For my friend Larry Martin,
I gave him a copy of the only war picture of myself that survived the second world war, because he is so interested in WWII history. I have told him many things of my war life. In this picture, I was 18 years old. I had just finished officer’s boot camp in Oxbol, Denmark. I am the only survivor of the 75 trainees.
I hope you will give me a copy of your notes.

Your friend,
Leo Forster”
