Easter, 1944

One of the most important things I do at estate sales is "rescue" war letters, cards and diaries from soldiers to their loved ones.  

This large vintage Easter card was sent by a soldier stationed in the South Pacific to his wife in Southern California, for Easter 1944.  She pasted it into a scrapbook, along with the other cards, letters and newspaper clippings they sent each other during World War II.

I sent the scrapbook to the military museum in New York State that keeps the records of Eddie's Army unit.
