Here are some items from the collection of Harold G. Smith. He entered WWII as a Lieutenant with the Buffalo Soldiers of the 92nd Infantry. He eventually retired as a Major. Included in the collection below: pictures of Harold Smith (notice the old school selfie using a mirror!), a note from his mother, a letter home to his wife, some of his medals and patches, a map of Italy, some of his work for Military Intelligence, and a letter from President Truman thanking him for his service.
By the way, in case you were wondering, yes, he does have all the letters he wrote home and YES, he opens with “Darling”!
