WW II War Letters


Fortunately, my father (Vincent) and his two brothers wrote home infrequently enough to insure that my grandfather saved each of their letters. Click on the links below to read their transcribed letters. Transcribing was necessary due to the scrunched handwriting and fading ink, which makes reading and deciphering the original letters somewhat time-consuming.
