Letters to Wilma will trace the path of a WWII Army doctor from training on Cape Cod, to landing D-Day plus 6 in Normandy, and concluding 1400 miles later in Leipzig, Germany. Greg's path included the Battle of the Bulge and the liberation of the slave labor camp at Nordhausen, with the 438th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion. Wilma became his wife, and I their fourth child.
28 Months after Greg and Wilma met on a blind date they were married. Of the 28 months, 23 months were spent an ocean apart. Through these letters, they grew to know one another and felt the love that would last a lifetime.
Here are their formal wedding pictures.
And here's what happened next...
44 years later, in 1989, this picture was taken of their children. From left to right are Robert ("Buck"), Leslie, Susan ("Susie") and Richard ("Dick").
This blog has been brought to you by me, Susie, their Fourth Child.
