These are my grandfather's letters to my grandmother while serving in the US Army during WWII. New letters posted as long as they last (1942-1945). I also supplement with photos and songs from the period that relate to the letters as I find them.
Thanks to Shorty’s description of running into a bear I can be almost certain he was at Cold Bay in September of 1943. This is a B-24 Liberator photographed at Cold Bay in 1943 and is the same type of aircraft produced at the factory where Shorty’s brother Pat worked in Ft Worth during the war.
