My grandfather was a SSGT in the US ARMY AIR FORCE and served in WWII. He was captured and was a POW for a period of time. I have a few pieces of memorabilia from this time/event.
The first is a newpaper clipping with his photo....I think he looks a little like Clark Gable.....
|its very old|
This is a photo of my grandmother--his wife. I knew my grandmother as a young child, but I never knew my grandfather. He passed before I was born. I loved this lady--Jordan is named after her. Jordan was her maiden name.
|She was so beautiful!|
I love this letter SO much.
April 15, 1944--"Somewhere in England"
" I could never in a million years tell you how much I love you and miss you but maybe some day you will know. I hope so. For I will never be completely happy while the biggest part of my life is missing and with all my heart I hope that this dam war will soon end for this is only one thing that would make me completely happy again and that is to be coming home to you...."
I love this tiny little piece of my family history that I have....its very special to me!
Hope you enjoyed it!
