Letter From A P-38 Pilot KIA over Luzon


Recommended Posts

I thought this letter deserved a post of its own. It was written by Ernest Nelson

stationed in the Philippines during the last few months of the war..

Its a letter to a friend and former instructor of his William Thomas in Pennsylvania.

Ernie was killed over Luzon in the Philippines a  month later after writing this letter.

His body was never recovered.
