Sonny Boy says he has not visited a concentration camp, though some tankers from his outfit did. He tries responding to his mother's question about all that he has seen, but he says he has a hard time remembering as it's all run together. He asks to be sent pictures of home. He describes the family he stayed with in Luxembourg.
