Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976953900, Paperback)

Six Plates At The Table consists of over 150 letters, postcards, telegrams, holiday cards, v-mails and vintage photographs between Pvt. H. Bruce Parker and his family in Oklahoma and Kansas. The letters begin with Bruce's arrival in Boot Camp in Ft. Sill, OK, continue through his Basic Training at Camp McCoy, WI and finish with his march through Europe as a medic until the War's End. The title of the book came from a reference in a postcard from Bruce's youngest brother, Jim, shortly after Bruce left for boot camp, about their mother setting the table for six out of habit, forgetting that her son, Bruce, had already left for the Service.
