Brann, Clinton T., 1891-1961

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint received Rhea's letters from late October, and has heard that those divisions sent over first will be first to return, so he is hopeful. He's put on weight since he left home, and he now weighs 140 lbs. He's living with two other men in a culvert under a road, one end of which they've blocked off with dirt and the other they have a canvas tarp over. He heard good news from home, that Frank retur... more

Brann, Clinton T., 1891-1961

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint attended his first Catholic church service at the request of his commanding officer because the local church invited the officers to attend. The French was very beautiful, although he could only understand a little of it. They had a Protestant service after the Catholic one, and some of the officers will be leaving for home in order to organize new regiments. He insists that he's not going to ru... more

Brann, Clinton T., 1891-1961

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

Ehrenbreitstein (Koblenz, Germany) - Clint has learned that the reason Rhea hadn't heard from him in so long was that all their mail from December was overlooked and remained undelivered until the new year. He worries that she will catch the flu since she spends so much time in schools, and urges her to be careful. He's been sick himself lately and the leave he and Captain Sampson requested has been delayed. He visited Koblenz the other ... more

Brann, Clinton T., 1891-1961

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

Bendorf (Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany) - Clint writes that he isn't bothered by Rhea spending time with other men because he's confident in their love for each other and wouldn't be swayed by any rumors he heard. She shouldn't base any of her plans on what he will be doing, since his own situation is so uncertain. There was a lapse in his letter-writing because he visited Koblenz and ran into a nurse he knew from a previous hospital he had w... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

Fort McCoy (Wis.) - Clint has just returned to camp from a trip where he saw Ben and Selma but not Pat's folks. Ben gave him her address and he hopes she is having a good time where she is or she "ought to be spanked." He's been stationed to Camp Robinson outside Sparta, Wisconsin with the 17th field artillery. She already knows that he's been commissioned first lieutenant, but he might not be here long so her letters mi... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

Bendorf (Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany) - Clint assures Rhea that her letters are always wanted and expresses concern over the grand image she has of him, which he feels does not reflect who he really is. He received good news from home, that he had sent enough money back to finish paying for the loans he'd taken out for school and equipment, and he is now "square with the world." He writes about many other topics, including a show they saw a... more

He reflects on the course of their romance and promises to send her photos as soon as he is able. The reverse side ... more
