As part of Al’s collection of memorabilia, he kept some of the correspondence he received during and after wartime.  Rather than put letters in individual dated posts, they will be found under the Correspondence tab.

It is obvious as you read some that there are shortages.  One letter is written on the back of sheets of paper that had  been used to study about our government (citizenship test, maybe?).  Here and there are requests for needed items.  They all hark back to a time when correspondence was often in a lovely flowing script and not limited to 140 characters.

I have reached out for help in translating some of the letters and appreciate those who stepped in.
