Happy Memorial Day.

I’d like to share this letter my grandfather wrote my grandmother during World War II. We grew up hearing stories of battles he was in, buddies he lost, and the “SOBs” they fought. I’m so glad that we have this written record of his thoughts and emotions, showing his tenderness in the midst of horrors, and an even more of the human side of the war.
