Taylor Girl, United States, Letters to the fighting men in the 40's
I first learned to write letters, when, at the age of 9 or 10, I visited my Grandmother. She wrote weekly letters to her seven sons in the service overseas, and when I was there, she set a lined tablet and some envelopes in front of me, so I could write them,too. It was such a thrill when some of them answered me individually, telling what they could about what was happening to them. My grandmother later had a front-page article in the newspaper, with photos of all 7 sons surrounding her at her desk, writing letters. All of these sons returned from combat duty safely, with no injuries.
