In addition to all the letters, I also have this little personal journal that looks to be hard to decipher in some spots, given the small size of the paper (3″ x 5″). It’s only about half full but goes up to Walt and Ruth’s wedding day on Christmas Eve, 1942 or 43 in San Antonio and to the beginning of flight training. Hard to read dates in this journal.
“We were married at 3:00 today. I am one lucky guy. Everything is going to turn out O.K. I’m sure.”
But first the letters.
