October 9, 1918 – Full diary entry:
“Have been writing to Nora every day since I got here. Have several letters from her. I believe that I am a father now but have no definite news.”
Robert was correct. Nora gave birth to Robert Jr. on September 29, 1918, the day Robert reflected on the terrible things he had seen as a stretcher bearer in the Meuse-Argonne.
Where was Robert today? See the timeline.
