Her letter reminded me of another I had received from a woman who corresponded with Babe while he was in the service.
A stroll through some old documents that I've collected — and finally organized so I can find things easier — revealed some information I forgot I had.
How I complied with their requirements to make Babe's information part of the record.
An earlier letter from Babe references a movie he hadn't seen — but perhaps his parents have. Your Friendly Blogger stumbled on The New York Times' review of the picture "My Pal, Wolf," and it's definitely worth a look.
I have transcribed the 46 letters Babe wrote in 1944 to his parents or to his brother. It’s noteworthy because there were fewer letters in more time — a complete year, versus the 11 months in 1943. As usual, all of the letters include a link to a PDF so you can see a scanned version of the original.
