Interesting Newspaper Article of letter written by Grandfather during WWI


Recommended Posts

This is pretty cool as I found this newspaper clipping of my Grandfather's letter to his parents while serving in France July 28th, 1918 Evidently my Great Grandmother found his letter home to be news worthy and she let the local newspaper print the letter. It's a great feeling to be part of what he felt over 100 years ago. Enjoy the read -

It's too bad that there is not a way to magnify the posted article when you click on it, Sorry if you cannot read due to being to small.

I was able to read the letter.

 

U r correct, pretty cool to read something, family-related, from so long ago.

 

Reminded me of my mom sending me super thick socks and lots of Kool Aid 50 years ago now.
