Letter announcing death of Philip Chlentzos in WW2 combat

From: J.A. Ulio
To: Lulu Chlentzos
Date: 16.08.1944

This letter was sent to my grandmother Yanoula (Lulu) Chlentzos by the United States Army, confirming the death of her son Philip Chlentzos, who was killed in action in France on July 27, 1944.

Philip had received the Purple Heart medal for wounds sustained in the French invasion, and had recovered and returned to action.
