Letters Home

At the height of World War II, La Crescent citizens created a community newsletter to bring the news of home to the town’s young men and women serving their country.  In turn, the service men and women wrote letters to the newsletter organizers, conveying appreciation for the hometown news, their military roles, and their hopes of returning home.
