Anne DeVico: Letters to the Troops
Anne DeVico talks about communicating with soldiers during the war.
Interview outtakes from THE WAR:
We wrote letters to all the boys we knew. And they loved getting the letters because they said at roll call they wanted their name to be called over and over because they said it was so wonderful. They loved these letters because we told them where we went last night. We went for a hotdog or something. You know, it wasn’t anything big, or we went to the USO dance and we saw so and so there. And at Christmas time, they got boxes galore. My whole kitchen table, my mother used to help, everybody helped. And we sent boxes to all of them.
