Join in on Show and tell friday with Cindy at My Romantic Home.. I was going through some vintage cases that i have , some filled with photos from 1800's and early 1900's.. I cam across some photos(which you can click on to enlarge) and letters home , from my Uncle that was in the war in japan.. You may remember my post on the China i have of my grandmothers the he brought back with him after the war. Todays post is about my uncle.. He was in the Navy and was in the USS MOBILE 5th division. Here you can see his letter home to my grandparents on VJ DAY August 10th 1945...
The letter starts out saying Dear mom and dad and family, boy am i a happy boy tonight... I almost fainted when the boats in the water of the watch announced "The War being Over"... I can only imagine how they all felt.. In the photo my Uncle is the very young boy sitting on the left side of the photo with a ciggerett in his hand. Just look at how young he was. The other photo is the ship he was serving on..and then the letter home. Pray for our troops.. Keep them in your hearts and minds..
The crabapples of spring.
