The Postman does deliver,a bit late at times.....

Postcard mailed during World War II arrives at New York home

Published November 22, 2012

Associated Press

ELMIRA, N.Y. – A postcard mailed nearly 70 years ago has finally arrived at the former upstate New York home of the couple who sent it.

The postcard was sent July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Ill., to sisters Pauline and Theresa Leisenring in Elmira.

Their brother, George Leisenring, was stationed at Rockford's Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant, an Army post during World War II. Their parents were visiting him when they mailed the postcard home.

The postcard reads in part, "Dear Pauline and Theresa, We arrived safe, had a good trip, but we were good and tired."

Elmira's Star-Gazette newspaper reports the postcard arrived last week at the family's former home, where a different family now lives.

On a slightly different note, I have a postcard that was mailed to my house in the 1920s. Someone had put it in a window frame and it fell behind it into the wall. We found it when we were rehabbing the house.

I find that kind of stuff very cool. When I see handwriting from the 20's etc... I find it very interesting.

We had to send the house to a quiet place out in the country for a while, but it's okay now.

Yeah, it was kind of an exciting find for us. It was completely intact and had been preserved pretty well. One of the children of the residents had driven to a town about 30 miles east of here, which was apparently a big deal at that time, so they sent the postcard to say that they'd arrived safely, and only had to put water in the car a couple of times. It was a family that lived in the house from roughly 1925 to 1941.

That's heartening. Maybe all of those military ballots will eventually be delivered too.
