Daddy was an avid letter writer. I have hundreds of letters he wrote to his mom, siblings, and my mother during his 20 years of service in the United States Marine Corps.
In the letter I share here, he is professing his love to my mother about 6 weeks after they married. He is stationed at Camp Lejeune,
NC and she is back home in Raleigh waiting for him.
I have to warn this letter is a tad steamy. It reminds me that our parents are more than just parents; they were one another's best friend and lover. Just as it should be.
