Letters from Sailors


Have you visited the Naval History and Heritage Command website? It is FULL of history and pictures! We found some neat letters from James Wright and Charles W. "Bill" Cooper. Check it out!


"The Archives Branch maintains the personal papers of James Wright and Charles W. "Bill" Cooper, two Sailors who served in the Pacific during World War II. Both men wrote frequently to their families back home. The letters published here capture their thoughts and feelings about the end of the war, their activities following the cessation of hostilities, and their eagerness to return home. Some of the letters also describe the activities of their families on the homefront."
