Christmas 1944

As Christmas approaches, I thought I would post some images from Christmas time during WWII.

From Chuck Tighe's collection is this "chapel bulletin" from Christmas in France, 1944.

This is a Christmas card that was made during the war. It is from Pete Wilson's collection.

One of the guys from the 356th Fighter Squadron was able to take Pete's photo and add it to this Christmas card that he would have been able to mail back home.

I believe many of the men were able to send cards like this one home to their families!

If anyone remembers who was involved in making these cards, please let me know in an email.
