Letters Home from Guam 1942-1946

250 pages of letters from an enlisted teenager in the US Marine Corp during WWII to his mother and father. She worked at Willow Run Ford Bomber plant in Belleville, Michigan and his father drilled oil rigs. These letters capture the lives of ordinary Americans as WWII uprooted families for work and service during the war.

At the end of the war, his parents moved from the city back to the family farm in western Kentucky. His sister graduated from Wesleyan College in 1946 and married. He went to Michigan State University on the GI Bill, obtaining two undergraduate degrees and one masters degree. He married my mother in 1950.
