This collection consists of letters written to Norman S. Nelson and his wife while he was stationed at the Base Weather Station, Chatham Field, near Savannah. Most of the letters are from family members in Oakland, California. Some are from Capt. Carl P. Nelson, a cousin stationed in Italy, and Capt. Louis W. Schmahl, stationed in the Pacific area. Most of the letters from the servicemen are censored V-Mail. The letters contain personal news, and do not contain news relating to World War II.
