    Dear Mom and Dad,

    I’m writing this letter to you from Normandy, France. We just got here a couple days ago. I have never been this far from home before. What a beautiful country, but filled with anger and sadness at the same time. Today is my birthday and I’m missing all of you so much. I’m especially missing mom’s homemade chocolate cake that I get each year on my birthday. It’s been horrible over here, so cold. I’m looking forward to the snow melting and the spring to arrive.I have made so many great friends along the way, people who I will be friends with forever I will never forget them. Some have been hurt badly, others passed. I hope you all are not worried about me. I am well and healthy and feel just fine. I always look forward to receiving letters and pictures from the family. It warms my heart during these cold days. What i have seen so far i will definitely never forget. More and more ships of troops keep pulling up to the shores carrying soldiers by the thousands. The sounds of planes dropping soldiers floating down from the skies with parachutes. It’s a different sight to see that’s for sure.

    How are you both doing? How are my sisters Sophia and Karla doing? I’ve been away so long, they must be getting so big now. Please if you are able try to send me more pictures of all of the family. How is our family farm doing? It must be hard now that I am gone and not able to help out dad with all of the chores. I’m hoping you and dad can get some more help on the farm soon, I know he will certainly need it. Since spring is coming and a lot of new animals will be born. Please tell my uncles, aunts and cousins that I also miss them terribly. Also, I am doing fine. I will send you another letter when I am able, I do really enjoy communicating with you all as much as I possibly can, it’s what gets me through these hard times. Love you all so much.

    Love always, Alex.

    Dear mom and dad,
    Right now i’m in the trenches muddy, wet and scared i’m wounded with a gunshot in my left knee im okay but still hurt and hurting that’s why i’m having a break in the trenches and hopefully safe for at least an hour or so. Hopefully I can come back home soon. how are you doing without me there? I miss you guys. Do you miss me? Are you guys doing well? How is grandma and nana doing? I’m doing okay with people that are nice and helping each other. This is not a fun time but i’m okay because we want freedom in this country.

    Dear Mom,

    How are things going on the farm? I hope my horses are behaving well for you and dad. I hope the weather is good for you this winter. How are you and dad doing? I’m doing ok, I’m missing being home and helping out with the chores around the farm and house. I am cold and wet. The trenches are muddy and cold. Some soldiers that I have become friends with, have lost some fingers and toes due to the extreme cold. Don’t worry I am bundling the best I can to stay warm. A couple of weeks ago I lost one of my closest friends during a battle. I’m scared that it will happen to me next and I won’t see you or dad again. That has been going through my mind a lot lately. I just want to come home.
    I noticed Christmas is just a few days away and it made me think of you and dad. I´m wishing you both a very Merry Christmas. I miss you both so much. I will write again as soon as I get a spare moment. Please take care of each other. I love you guys. Say hello to the rest of the family from me.

    Love,
    Your daughter Julie

    Dear DadI miss you all very much. How are mom and hunter doing. I wish i could come home to see all of you. How are Grama and Grampa doing?
    I am safe for now and doing all right. I get pretty scared sometimes but my buddies are feeling the same so we help each other. We were all very sad last week because we lost two of our friends in a batul

    How is work going for you and Mom? Are you really busy? Have you gone out fishing lately? I miss home with all of you so much.
    I need to go now so I can get this to the mail officer. I miss you all and love getting your letters

    Love to you all Tyler

    Dear Mom,
    I am writing you this letter to let you know that I’m a doing ok for now. The war has been difficult so far but we are starting to gain a bit of an advantage against the enemies. I can’t wait to be able to come home when this is done.
    I love you and if I survive I will see you when the war is over. I Love you so much
    Lily
