Senior in history Jessica Herman looked into her family history and found something interesting: letters her great uncle, the twin brother of her grandfather, wrote home when he served in the military during World War II.

Recognizing the historical importance of the letters, she created a blog in honor of her great uncle, Arthur A. Hersh. To date, she has posted 42 of his letters and provided biographical information on her great uncle and general information about the unit with which he served. You can access the blog at the following link. Not only does it represent its creator’s passion for history, the letters are interesting reading and valuable primary sources.
