Today I was doing some copy work for my Mother in law. You see her Dad was in the war, and returned home just before her 5th birthday. Sadly, at the time of his return, it was known that he would not live long as a result of his injuries, he died a short time later. I got to read through some of the letters as I carefully laid out each piece, each letter, each medal, each token of remembrance that had been kept safely in a box. This is just one of the little personal notes, and a valentines card, sent from a little girl, to her Daddy in another country, there, to protect her freedom...and ours. A War Hero to more than one "Little Eleanor".
