This is a large collection (135 +) of WWII Letters from Norwood McLauchlin and his family who lived in Allentown, PA. Norwood was assigned to the 882nd Signal Corp, Air Force. I have included a spreadsheet of the letters and comments on the contents of the letters. As I read the letters, I begame engrossed in the struggle this young married man and his wife were having in being separated from each other. War then was so differrent than now. At least our boys can come home occasionally and see their families. During WWII, they were gone for the duration. We also think that our government provides for the soldiers, but in WWII, the boys were missing many of the basics including good food. These letters give a rare opportunity to follow an ordinary American family from the beginning of the war to the end.
I have also enclosed Norwood and Helen's wedding picture and the obituary for Norwood. From my research, I do not think they ever had any children.
