I just realized that this is the time of year that my dad started writing to my mom back home, so I’ve decided to start posting the letters on the day of the year they were actually written.  This means that when he wrote two in a day, two will be posted.  If he didn’t write for a week, it will be a week. For example, if he wrote the letter on Aug 27th, 1967, it will be posted here 41 years later on Aug 27th, 2008.

I don’t think that there will be many delays for a while, I’ve scanned forward in the book and I think 3 days is about the longest he’s gone without writing.  If there are major gaps I may eventually have to break this trend, but for now I’ll be posting at an accelerated rate until caught up.
