WaPo has a long article today about 4 brothers who wrote a lot of letters during the war. The letters were found in a storage locker in AZ and are available to listen to. Very interesting reading. Link to story is here.

If the moderator wants to move this to the History forum that's fine by me.

Yes. They are interesting to read and many have been collected into book form from many sources. Virtually no other way for soldiers to communicate back then. There was so much volume that there was a special V mail letter form that was microfilmed overseas and shipped back to the US and then printed to save space for other vital war supplies.
