Description

Ida continues to talk about the Champagne Campaign and the rest and relaxation they got, not needing to fight any real battles. He talks about going down to Leghorn and getting wounded a second time while in Carrara. He also talks about confiscating a German payroll truck and taking thousands of dollars, which they would cash in Switzerland. Shortly after getting his eardrums blown out by a shell, he would learn of the end of the war. Next, he talks about correspondence with family and politics in Hawaii. He would spend some time in Switzerland after the war and head back to the United States.
