"I had returned to camp about one week when the Red Cross called me to their office. They informed me that my brother was reported ‘killed in action‘ in St. Lo, France. He was in the Indian Head Division in the midst of the worst battles and probably didn´t have a chance to survive. According to their report, he had died of shrapnel wounds in the chest and shoulder in a field hospital. I broke down and could not stop crying. I was inconsolable. Where was this ‘merciful God‘ now? Death always came to others. At least I always pictured it this way and when death affected me directly it was unbearable tragedy," Herman S. Joslow, brother.
