If you are of an historical bent and interested in the human side of World War II, here is a set of letters from a cadet at the San Antonio Aviation Center ranging in date from 1943 to 1944. His name was Jim, and he sent a lot of letters home that were treasured by his family over the years. In addition to his training he also gives a sense of his travels after the aviation center. The letter heads of the stationary he wrote on are wonderful in of themselves and give one a sense of San Antonio at the time period. There are a total of eight letters in the packet, five of which were written from the aviation center, two others which show him in transit and then finally arriving in San Antonio, with the last letter after his training was finished written from Tampa detailing how he was shipped around to a variety of states. They were all addressed to his mother and are all in excellent condition and easy to read. They were obviously treasured by a worried mother! If you have an interest in World War II and ephemera, these letters provide a lot of information about the training of airforce personnel during the war.
