Series 5, Clippings, 1941 August 1

 Series — Multiple Containers

Scope and Contents

This series contains one newspaper and one clipping. The clipping is a poem in English from a French paper sent to Hecht's mother, with handwritten notes. The newspaper is the Ninth Division Anniversary Edition paper from Fort Bragg August 1, 1941.

Of particular note is the newspaper's neglect of the war in Europe. From the articles, it is apparent some shifting and reorganization is occuring within the military but there is no mention of the war, rather with articles glorifying units from the First World War. Included are articles about the units and new weapons systems, birthday announcements, and various other articles and pictorial works or cartoons.
