Navy Letters Of World War 2 Vol 1. Of Eugene Schmidt to Maxine O'Connell
Navy Letters of WW2. Letters of Maxine Clair O'Connell and Eugene Valentine Schmidt. How they fell in love during War miles away apart writing every other day for 3 years. Then a marriage that lasted a beautiful 50 years.
A developing story about my Grandfather and Grandmother during World War 2 1942-1944 and 440 pages of information of the daily lives of a Navy pilot. My grandparents only knew each other for only 3 weeks before the War started and talk not only about their own lives but others as well in the Bay Area, California. Rationing, plane fights, parties and clubs. My grandfather was a ladies man in the letters but my Grandma was number one and went on to marrying for 50 years.
I created this book in memory of my Grandparents Eugene & Maxine Schmidt. This is the first year of the letters he wrote to his then girlfriend. They met and knew each other for only 3 weeks and grew into a serious relationship turned marriage through all these letters. There are about a total of 3,000 pages of these letters that I have left to do. I am a 23 year old male in the Bay Area of California and I work full time helping and caring for seniors.
