This episode focuses on the correspondence from an U.S. Army Captain deployed in Germany to his wife in Three Oaks, Michigan.

Yesterday we went to Dachau and saw the concentration camp.  There is not much to see now.  Everything is all fixed up and it is now used to imprison S.S. troops.

Well when I found that out I really blew up.  I never stopped until I told Major Brown, Battalion Commander what I thought.  He did everything to cool me off.  I told him that I wasn’t doing one more thing that I have quit and he could send someone else to take over S4.
