A Letter Home
My mom has been going through old photographs and scrapbooks with the idea of trying to organize all the items. Unearthed, so to speak, once again, are letters home from my dad from his Navy days. I have scanned one of the longest...written on rice paper...that was composed while aboard the USS Alabama anchored in Tokyo Bay. Here are the first two pages of eleven total. Watch for the rest in the upcoming days. You will need to click to enlarge the images to read. Since this is the first attempt at publishing these on the blog, I'm hoping the enlargements will be legible. If not, I suppose I shall have to transcribe the letter.
