Soldier Ray Stone Writes Home

During WWII V-Mail (Victory Mail) was the primary way servicemen were able to communicate with their loved ones back home. In this note, Ray Stone writes to his wife "I think about you always Betty. The feeling and the love I have for you has grown into something much deeper than small talk & sayings." He wrote this from Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge.

DFO: The letter former Coeur d'Alene mayor Ray Stone sent home to his wife, Betty, during the Battle of the Bulge is one of the many items featured on Cindy Hval's "War Bonds: Love Stories from the Greatest Generation" Facebook page. You can become a follower of Cindy's page by clicking here.

Question: Do you have any World War II memorabilia that belonged to your parents?
