Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of one letter written by John F. Foltz and addressed to Dr. Lee Kennett, history professor at the University of Georgia. In the letter Foltz responds to a book written by Kennett concerning World War II. Foltz, a World War II veteran, states that contrary to Kennett's belief, the war was not over until December 31, 1946. Moreover, up until October 1946, the draft continued. As a 1945 draftee, Foltz does not want the late draftees to be left out of World War II history.
