I just found this very interesting post on Mashable with the journal of a US soldier during WW2.

"These sketches trace Lundy’s journey from training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, to shipping out across the Atlantic, to front line duty in France before his wounding in combat in late 1944."

I did a search on WC, but please remove if this has already been posted.

Meandering through the forum I discovered this. Wonderful sketches, done at such an intense time. Thanks again for sharing this.

I'm also intrigued to learn that the Library of Congress keeps such materials and makes them available. I could get lost in their website.

I looked him up and it seems he became a successful architect later on. Those sketches are really amazing.
