Misplaced Letter from 1953

Hello Readers,


I enjoyed this article about a young military man who wrote a letter to his wife when he was in boot camp in 1953. However, the letter did not arrive until recently. Hope you enjoy the post.


It was 1953 and then-Pvt. Bob Rodgers had just arrived at Fort Campbell, Ky.,  for basic training when he sat down to write a letter to his wife after the  post’s power went out.

Sixty years later, that letter finally turned up, when the U.S. Postal  Service gave it back to Rodgers, who’s now living in southwestern Michigan.Click here to read the entire article or watch the video clip.
