Tomorrow I will start publishing my father's letters home to his mother, Frankie Joy Root Prime, during WWII. My intention is to post them on the anniversary of the day he wrote them, starting with his first, dated December 07, 1943, through the end of his service in the Navy.
Jimmie was 17 years old when he entered the Navy, and served in the Pacific, mostly on the LCI(G) 373, until the end of the war.
Thank you, Dad, for giving your permission to publish these letters. To readers, I hope you find them interesting. Please feel free to comment.
