Most of you boys v/ho know :me would
hardly remember >me as one who could write
a good letter. Yet no doubt, moist of you
do remember that I have always been a
pretty good talker, I am sure that under
normal conditions no'one could persuade
me to try and-write a letter to you boys, but these are unusual times, and a
lot of us^ ‘even, hero at’ home, are. trying hard, to do more every day than we. have .
ever done before;- Then, too, having, a son in the Armed. Forces, gives a Mother ,so
much more pride and enthusiasm than we feol in normal times.
Vfe Mothers! are so proud of you boys .in the Service that it has someirhat the
effect on us that if has on a man^s strength v/hen.he is .badly scared, I am sure .
that all of- you have se(jn men who- were excitcd or scared do something unusual,
and somethihg'that would seem ..almost impossible under normal conditions, . V/e are
certainly not afraid.or:scared, but to have a son fighting for this great Country
of ours is enough to make every Mother happy, proud and enthusiastic.
We are all very happy to hear of the plans our government is now laying for
our happiness and your happiness after the war. realize, however, that these .
plans cannot materialize were it not for' the sacrifice that-you boys are now ■. >
making. We want you to know that none of us back home v;ill ever forget, after the
war is over, the ones v;ho have been responsible for making a world at' Peace.,
We proud Mothers are longing-for the day when you boys can return home,
' ' Sincerely,
Mrs, Nan Caldwell
