Stan & Mary: A Love Story In LettersThe Veterans Site
This story is the reason the word “sweet” was coined.
Remember the days before email and Skype? Well, those who fought in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War do. Sending letters to your special girl was sometimes the only way you could disconnect from your surroundings and express some feelings of hope and happiness to another person.
Watch this love story unfold in snail mail. Mary was still a high schooler when Stanley shipped off to Europe in 1944.
Two years of writing back and forth culminated in this love story!
Needless to say, the fact they have saved the letters over all these decades is amazing. It shows the commitment these two had for each other. These letters mattered to them and to their relationship, and their connection, to each other.
Such a beautiful story! Give it a watch.
