  • Forty-seven letters and three cards written by Greenwold to his sister Nellie Greenwold Hindal in Kenosha, Wis., during his service in the U.S. Army during World War II. The letters begin on February 23, 1943 during Greenwold's training at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and continue through his transfer to Hawaii and later New Britain Island, the Philippine Islands, Paray Island, and Korea, covering such topics as the boredom and routine of military life, home, the future, and the frustrations of military censorship. Also included are two letters written by Greenwold to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Greenwold of Barron, Wis., and photocopies of four photographs, including two of the Andrew Greenwold family.
