Brann, Clinton T., 1891-1961

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - It's a beautiful night and Clint has recovered his shoulder bag with Rhea's letters which he'd thought were lost. He assures her that he's not on the front or carrying a gun, since he's a doctor, and he wonders how he will adjust to life back home after the war is over. He asks her if she's saving his letters so that after the war they can better keep track of where he was. They all have fleas and lic... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint's visit with Llyod was cut short when he was ordered to Field Hospital 15 for temporary duty. He is now at Field Hospital 1 doing paperwork related to hospital records and reports, a big change from being a dentist. He assures her that her letters are the best part of his time overseas and she can never send too many. When he arrived at his current location, his shoulder bag with all his mail go... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Martha Brann

France - Clint hasn't received mail in so long that it's causing him to wonder and worry. He'll be leaving soon for Marseilles where they will board a ship and depart for home. He's glad they're going to Marseilles because it's a port he hasn't seen yet. He has to return his dental equipment to the medical depot before he leaves, which is a day's trip there and back. He ran into his friend "Hop" from Knoxville... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint misses Rhea and reassures her that she is first in his heart. Many things are uncertain now and unclear, but he plans to return her as soon as he is able. It's been almost a year since he arrived overseas, and one year has felt like five in terms of making him older and wiser. He applied for transfer to the regular Army Dental Corps from the Reserve Corps, but at this point he doesn't think it w... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint is writing from a field hospital operating room, where he has the night shift. There is a shortage of field surgeons so some of the dental surgeons have been called in to act as anaesthetists. The extra work leaves little time for food and rest, but at least one life has been saved by shortening the time it took to operate. He describes the wounded soldiers they have operated on, as well as the ... more

Brann, Clinton T., 1891-1961

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint received a letter from Llyod letting him know that he is in the base hospital with a wound to his arm. He'd tried looking for Lloyd at his own hospital, but when he couldn't find him he knew that Llyod's injury must not be serious since only the seriously wounded come to their hospital. He read an uncomfortable story in the paper titled "The Horror of Moonlight" by George Battillo which was a st... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint has returned to regimental headquarters and has a wonderful billet in a garden by a little castle, which he describes. He watched nearby villages being bombed last night, and he hopes to get leave soon to visit Paris. He asks her what she wants him to send her, and suggests he might send "some dainty lingerie." He asked Captain Stone if that would be proper and he seemed to think so, but he's ma... more

Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

France - Clint has arrived in France although he spent his first few days on shore with a terrible cold. The voyage was good and they stayed in port a few days unloading everything before taking a train to somewhere else. They had quite a party for the new year and he hopes many more years won't pass before he can see her again. They came at the worst time of year for sightseeing and it snowed nearly the whole... more
