|Doc Dreher Loses Nerve Over Dead Bodies 1945
Albert "Doc" Dreher, writing to relatives at Kennebec, stated
that he is in a hospital in England.
He drove a truck to the front lines and finally lost his
nerve and was taken to the hospital for a while. Driving over dead
bodies was too much for him in the battlefield in Belgium, he stated.
His brother, Francis, is a merchant marine and has made four
trips across the Atlantic taking food and soldiers across and can tell
of heart-rendering scenes of old men and children begging for food.
Another brother, Glen, is a Private in a Texas bombing plant.
