Dear Ms. Edeker,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
It is very likely that the letters described were known as “Victory Mail” or V-mail during World War II. Please see the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum or V-mail for more background information about the military’s use of this special mailing operation.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
That is fascinating information. I had no idea of all the rigamarole they went through to get letters home. Thank you.
