Contains correspondence, 1942-1945, between Charlie A. Wilson and his wife Margot Wilson. The letters start in 1942 when Charlie first goes to training and track his trek through Europe during the War. As he is shipped overseas he and his wife write about how life is in their new realities, the war, and changes in their own personal relationship . Letters were shipped by V-mail, regular mail and airmail and several are stamped by the censor. There are a few newspaper clippings from the Stars 'n Stripes military newspaper and an interesting military cartoon that Charlie sent at Christmas.
