WW II Letters Home

At the March 11, 2018 meeting, Linda Foster shared with us letters written by her father's cousin, Bob Lash, during World War II, 1942-1945. Through those letters we learned a first hand account of a soldier's life in the army and what was happening in the world at the time. Included were pictures, maps and other images from from his service as a combat engineer in the Pacific theatre of the war. Participants brought their own personal WW II family items, pictures and stories to share.
