Part 8: Grandpa's Valentine World War II

A soldier mailed this to my Grandma in 1945. He was the most handsome man I ever saw. And what an artist! I think this is the sweetest Valentine card that ever there was. My Grandpa was a Staff Sergeant in the Trailblazers division during World War II.

Below (top right) is a photo of my Grandma taken on her wedding day. My grandpa carried it all through the war.
Think about the Veterans this Valentines Day and what they gave to win for their sweethearts back home.
Do you have any Valentines sent from WWI or II soldiers? They are so sweet to find.
