In this photo of a letter from the collection of Patrick Lernout, dated Aug. 1918, and written by American World War One soldier Wesley Creech from the Western Front in Belgium. As if by premonition, Private Wesley Creech no longer hid the darkness of his soul from his wife Carzetta and five-month-old daughter Marie during the decisive weeks of World War One. “If I never see you and Marie any more, I hope to meet you in a Better Place,” he penned down in his best strokes on Aug. 24, 1918, when the American army was pushing the Germans back in Belgium. He signed off the letter with “good By.” One week later he was killed by an enemy bullet in the head. (AP Photo)
