WONDERFUL: Family Receive Letters From Patriarch Fighting In Korean War After 70 Years
March. 05, 2021
Nothing beasts happiness in the earlier days when you receive a letter from your loved ones.
When that letter comes from your loved one who is defending the country on the front-lines, the message brings a feeling of release as our find out that your loved one is still alive and well enough to write to you.
This feeling came over seventy years late as a Pennsylvania war memorabilia collector was able to find the family of a man whose letters from the Korean War ended up for sale at an auction.
“This is history; this is something people live for. It shouldn’t be thrown away. It’s something that should be given back to whoever, because maybe the family doesn’t know that these exist.
“Within 10 minutes, I got an email saying they were relatives, and I’m like, I saw the number, didn’t waste any time I called right away,” Shupe said.
Waibel said his family is grateful to Shupe.
The war began on 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following clashes along the border and insurrections in the south.
The Soviets administered the northern-half and the Americans administered the southern-half.
