LAST LETTERS OF THE HERO OF THE SOVIET UNION, GUARDS GENERAL-Major IVAN PANFILOV TO THE WIFE: November 13, 1941.
“Hello, dear, Murochka! First, I hasten to share the joy with you. Mura, you've probably heard on the radio more than once, and they write a lot in the newspapers about the heroic deeds of soldiers, commanders, and about our unit in general. The trust that has been given to me, defending of our capital, Mosocw, was justified. You, Murochka, cannot imagine what good fighters and commanders I have, they are true patriots, they fight like lions, in everyone's heart there is one desire to prevent the enemy from reaching their native capital, to ruthlessly destroy the reptiles. Death to fascism! On November 17, 1941. Mura, today hundreds of soldiers, division commanders have been awarded the Orders of the Unionby by order of the front . Two days ago I was awarded the third Order of the Red Banner. This is still, Mura, just the beginning. I think soon my division should be guards, there are already three heroes. Our motto is to be all heroes. Moore, bye. Follow the newspapers, you will see about the deeds of the Bolsheviks. Now, Murochka, how do you live there, how are things in Kyrgyzstan, how do the guys study and, finally, how does my little Makushechka live? I miss you very much, but I think the end of fascism will soon be over, then we will again build the great cause of communism. I.V. Panfilov. Valya is feeling well, I think that soon she will be a bearer of the order, she was accepted into the party, and we are very satisfied with her work. Murochka, I have sent you 1000 rubles ... Dear Mura, you do not write at all. For all the time I received one letter from you. Write more often, I feel good when I receive news from home. Please, write. I kiss you and the children tightly: Zhenya, Viva, Galochka and my dear Makochka. Say hello to everyone ... Write, address: Army in the field, Division Headquarters. Kisses, yours I. Panfilov. Greetings from Valyushka.
