Message from a Soldier: Bronen Brothers #4

The last Bronen card I posted was postmarked February 23, 1944 from Murry to his parents. Several days later, Murry’s brother Jack sent him a postcard from Greensboro, North Carolina.

“Dear Murry, nothing doing today, it seems we have the whole day to ourselves. Have you heard from Sid. yet. Jack”

Sid was the third Bronen brother in the service. Jack didn’t include his address or any contact info, but it can probably be assumed he was at the base within Greensboro; the front of this card shows chemical warfare instruction at Basic Training Center #10 in Greensboro. According to an article from WFMY News 2, the Army Air Force Base was for basic training center in 1943, then an overseas replacement depot in 1944. Also, during World War II “Greensboro was the only city to have a military base inside its city limits.”
