Here is a sampling of the letters that my mother (then known as Carol Lynn Heggen) sent home to her parents in Oklahoma during WWII. When the war started she was finishing her degree at Northwestern University. In 1942 she married and moved to New York to work at Reader's Digest. Then she joined the Red Cross in 1945 and was sent to Saipan.
