lss/gww WAR DEPARTMENT THE ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE WASHINGTON 25, D.C. In Reply Refer To: AG 201 Martin, Lawrence PC-N ET0027 6 February 1945 Mrs. Lora M. Martin Route #2 Ferrum, Virginia Dear Mrs. Martin: It is with profound regret that I confirm the recent telegram informing you of the death of your husband, Corporal Lawrence Martin, 33,530,508, Field Artillery, who was previously reported missing in action on 17 December 1944 in Belgium. An official message has now been received which states that he was killed in action on the date he was previously reported missing in action. Recently provisions were made whereby there will be sent directly to the emergency addressee or the next of kin a letter containing further information about each person who dies overseas in the service of our country, and if this letter has not already been received, it may be expected soon. I realize the burden of anxiety that has been yours since he was first reported missing in action and deeply regret the sorrow this later report brings you. May the knowledge that he made the supreme sacrifice for his home and country be a source of sustaining comfort. My sympathy is with you in this time of great sorrow. Sincerely yours, [signature J.A.Ulio] J.A. Ulio Major General The Adjutant General 1 Inclosure Bulletin of Information
