Be careful when you write love letters! You never know who will find them. Then again, who writes letters these days?
A woman from Murrells Inlet, S.C., purchased a pile of paperbacks at a used bookstore and found a letter inside one of the books. The envelope was postmarked November 1951. With the help of a genealogist, the woman was able to locate the soldier, now a 83-year-old veteran in a suburb of Detroit. A phone call was made and now the letter has been returned to the ex-soldier.
