Virginia Emory Letters

Identifier: SC 00267

  • Staff Only

Scope and Contents

Two letters to Miss Virginia Emory from Richmond, VA from a Joe and Joey.  They may be the same individual, but the envelope of one of the letters sheds some doubt.  The letters are informational in that they detail duty stations in Florida and highlight the importance of morale for the soldiers preparing to go to battle in World War II and the role correspondence had in maintaining high morale.


  • Creation: 1943, 1944
