Italian-American, 1943

Description

Danny's letter is written on stationary with the header: "I've been so busy getting ready to whip the Japs, I haven't kept up my letter writing. He is so impressed by the photos she has sent. He says she is a Queen and he has showed them to everyone in his company. He suggests that they hint to their families to see their opinion of them marying on his furlough. He is cognizant that he will likely be sent overseas after his furlough. In the same envelope there is a letter from her cousin Roger Di Paolo. In his letter he asks her to explain to his dad that although he is in the hospital (recuperating from strenuous activity) that it is nothing serious.
