History Spotlight: Victory Mail
Posted 15 February 2013 - 12:45 AM
It wasn't always the weapons or ammo that kept our boys fighting in WWII. A soldier is only as strong as his resolve; a resolve derived from a connection to others.
Everywhere I look today I feel like I see an article about love letters, long lost or otherwise. While those tales are always quite incredible and heartwarming; they rarely make any mention of the machinations behind the delivery.
Take a look at our Victory Mail article, and do some additional reading if the spirit takes you, for a quick touch on the subject of mail delivery to the front lines during WWII.
If you've got an interesting tale to share, please feel free!

On a heavier note, he didn't get to see his first-born child until she was 3 years old...those letters were his only contact to his family for all that time. It's amazing to think about the kind of strain that would put on a family...that was truly a tough generation! I'm glad that so much effort was made to keep that line of communication open...it meant a lot to my grandparents, and I'm sure it saved many marriages and perhaps even lives.
