A bunch- from 1941-1975ish. This one was Harold K. Johnson. She also worked for Abrams. Grandma was hailed as "the best damn secretary in the Army" by more than a handful of 4- Stars.

I once worked with a woman who had been Patton's secretary before he went to Europe. She had a whole scrapbook full of letters and notes he sent during the war.

Neat items. Jan, that "Mission Accomplished" is a tough book to come by as I am sure you know. Below is probably one of my favorite paper items that I have. It was given to me by him a few years ago. Enjoy!

Damn that's one hell of a nice paper APO472 !
About the 'Mission Accomplished' : I had a little bit of luck since i could buy it with 'Buy it now' for 100€ (=120$ or something). Unfortunatly it's missing the dust cover.
