November 1942 Letters Transcribed ✅

Everything changes in November 1942 for Walt and Ruth’s Christmas wedding plans, when Walt is abruptly sent to San Antonio, Texas for pre-flight training in the middle of the month. Ruth had been planning to go out to Kansas for the wedding and then return home, and while she is now planning to go to Texas, Walt doesn’t think it’s feasible. But the announcement has already appeared in the paper and there are plans for a party at home. Walt thinks he is up against uncontrollable forces, but probably he has not figured on Ruth’s determination.
