World War II era- Part II

World War II Era- Part II

As I have written in an earlier blog, Headmaster Ted Eames wrote monthly letters to alumni serving in the military during World War II. These letters range from light and upbeat news of events on campus, to information obtained from other alumni in the military, to deeper, more philosophical letters on the day the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima as well as the day Japan surrendered. It seems clear that alumni did write back to Mr. Eames. Some of these rather dramatic adventures were published in the Archons of that era. Below is one such tale. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
