Dec 8, 1945 – In Marseille area on windy mountain with two divisions ahead of us. Hope I don’t have to write many more letters.

Listen to the letter
This was the last letter Ben wrote home. Tucked away in a box, the letters,
his YD insignia, dogtags, and memorabilia reappear in 2007. 
These materials now reside in the
National Museum of American Jewish History, Philadelphia, PA
