My uncle, Philip E. Bergquist, served the USA at 5th Army Headquarters from October 1943 until October 1945. These stories about his colleagues come from letters he sent home from Italy to his family.
Mentioned just briefly in a few letters, Pfc. Dallas L. Moore was from Western Pennsylvania, according to the list of ‘fellows in my office’ sent home on 11 May 1944. Dallas and Sgt Cratty had the afternoon off on 30 May 1945 (Memorial Day). Pfc. Moore was one of six men who were in the AG Section of Fifth Army Headquarters in June of 1945. He and Philip “do the typing, running messages and odd jobs around the office.”
