The Story Ends. Early in 2015, I will launch a new blog. It will chronicle my dad's service in the U.S. Navy from the time he volunteered for service. All the "Dearest Eleanor" letters will be published along with more photos, pertinent documents and memorabilia.
On the advice of a preservation librarian, I'm scanning the actual letters. I've completed the task for 180 of over 500 letters.
Thank you for reading and commenting on this blog. Posting has been a great pleasure. As a bonus, I have learned much about my parents and World War II.
