Dear Husband,The end to the war has been an interesting one. Hitler commited suicide in his bunker. I guess the coward wanted to avoid what he had coming to him. Maybe it is better he did this though. Many in Eurpoe are now celebrating their liberation from concentration camps. How does somebody go back to a normal life after that? The last matter of the war we had to deal with was the dropping of the atomic bomb. We saw Enola Bay take off with our own eyes, loaded with the end to the war. Days later the Japanese called for surrender and the USS Missouri left for Tokoyo to be used a the site of the treaty signing. I will return home soon. I love you.
