WWII Diary makes it home

Comments

Thanks for the link. A great story.

I have 2 or 3 diaries from World War I, I think. My dad used to go to auctions and buy boxes of miscellaneous stuff--old pipe cleaners, empty planters, crappy pocket knives--in hopes of finding overlooked treasure. As a teen, I was so intrigued by the journals, but haven't looked at the journals since I've been online. I bet I'd have a good shot at finding an owner or relative.
