(Taken from a letter to Will Lundy)

August 17, 1982

Dear Mr. Lundy:

I don't remember any of the names of the crew that I was with the day we were shot down. I wish I could help you, but I can't.

I am sending you a check for the book. I would like to have it.

The pamphlet you sent me about WWII POW getting $1.50 per day. I took it to the Vet Adm. They didn't know anything about it. So far I have not heard anything.

My new address is: Jack p. Shepherd, Rt. 6, Box 137-D, Lancaster, So. Carolina 29720.

Thank you.

Dear Sir:

I have received all of your letters. I am sorry I cannot help you. I have been trying to put that experience out of my life for 40 years. I have had nightmares every night since then. The government has forgotten us POWs so why write a book of this experience?

I have been sick all of these years; of my stomach was removed in 1975 due to ulcers; 1/3 of my bladder was removed in 1983 due to cancer; I have COPD. All of these years. I Have a 40% disability, which is very little. I have tried to get my pension raised and they keep turning me down.

Mr. Jack Shepherd
