I have read many letters from soldiers in the field from that time period.
Not only is there a total absence of Cursing, but the handwriting is clean and legible, and the grammar is correct. A large vocabulary and an erudite means of self-expression seem to have been in abundance even in the simple, lonely thoughts of a common soldier.
While a man would have been less likely to curse in a letter to home, the general tone of the letters indicates a much higher plane of self-expression than what we have today.
I am convinced that there has been concerted and organized effort on the part of Hollywood to coarsen and debase our culture.
And it has succeeded.

This began in the 1960s when the hippies and anti=war traitors began to force crude language on the public. Beore this time anyone saying “F” or “S” or even worse, “m*****f*****” in front of women or in mixed company would have been taken out to the back alley and given an attitude adjustment.
And no, Cowboys did not dance and say “BULLS**T” at the same time.
