World War II: Letters To and From a Young Soldier

September 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Brockton Library is pleased to welcome back Seema Kenney for another special presentation. Over three hundred letters found in her uncle’s attic tell a compelling story of his life as a young WWII soldier, as well as his family’s experiences back home. These letters document his service with the Fifth Army Headquarters, from registering at Fort Devens, training at two separate camps, then travelling overseas to Italy. He describes the work and the leisure, the rules, and the return trip. Letters from his family tell of their life at home during the war. Learn about or re-live the years 1943-45 as we travel through his time using the words of a 19-year-old country boy and his family!

This program will be presented over Zoom on Wednesday, September 6 at 7 PM. Register at bit.ly/seemakenneywwII.
