Synopsis
Brigadier General Parker visits the Baker Company and his own son, Lieutenant Parker, and Private Cornelius Hoolihan [Weepy].

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here must be by someone else, as it is not like his credited inking on Johnny Cloud in DC's "All-American Men of War". Those are much more thin penlines than these heavier brushlines.

Indexer Notes

Dan DeCarlo is credited to both pencils and ink on The Yardbirds in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but Rudy Lapick is also credited as his personal inker, and the inking is not to be distinguished from other signed DeCarlo/Lapick stories in G.I. Joe.

Indexer Notes

Not an ordinary Letters page, but a continuing story told by means of letters from a G.I. to wife at home.

Synopsis
Lt. Parker saves the life of Pvt. Lawson.

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here must be by someone else. It could be Giacoia on all three stories, but uncertain.
Notice Lt. Parker has black hair in this story, but red hair in the first one...
