Nurse Ruth Beery: Correspondence with Next of Kin (Letter 56)

[Charlottesville, Va
21 February 1946]

Dear Mr. Masaonri [Masanori] Akimato,
Your name was
given as the nearest of
kin to PFC John Akimato.
No additional
information can be
given, but it may be
of some satisfaction
for you to know that
your son was cared

for by doctors and nurses
in a hospital, and that
everything possible was
done for his comfort
and care.

We felt that not
enough could be done
for those men who
fought so bravely and
gave so much.

Most sincerely,
Ruth Beery
Capt. anc.
