World War II Vet Melvin Offerdahl remembers Letters written home

by Bob Harris

Another Veteran's Day has past and one of the more enjoyable interviews I've had in the past several years was with Melvin Offerdahl a distant relative who was stationed in the Pacific during World War II. I found some letters written to my Great-Grandmother from her "boys" in the war.  Well I tracked down Melvin a few years back and we had a chance to chat about the letters and a number of other things.
