Legacies: Son meets Dad through long-lost World War II love letters.

“I’ve always had a lot of respect for him and being able to read his own words, has shown me why I respect him,” he says. “Even in the middle of war, he was always positive about making a life with his wife and son.

“He never expressed regret that he was in this war situation,” he says. “He knew he was headed to the hotbed Phillipines, but the knew that’s where he was supposed to be. To me that’s a real hero.”
