Frank Von Arx

Frank Gartz’s best buddy, Frank Von Arx, is at it again, sending greetings from his present post at Elmendorf Field in Alaska. He writes that some of his buddies are flying at altitudes where the temperature is 60 degrees below zero. That’s what these boys in the Army Air Corps will have to deal with regularly on bombing missions.

Frank Von Arx wants to know what happened with Frank Gartz’s classification. The answer will be posted in just a few days.

I think you’ll agree by the tone of this letter that the two Franks (Gartz & Von Arx) had personalities that made them born to be buddies.

This letter was started on December 30, 1943 and completed on New Year’s Day, 1944.
