”Lt. (jg) Roscoe S. Yegerlehner was a new arrival in Nouméa, New Caledonia, where he was a member of the Navy’s advanced base unit CUB-13. As a doctor, he was tasked with setting up a new base hospital as well as attending to the medical needs of the soldiers stationed there. Roscoe’s wife Gladys had just given birth to their youngest son. Both were anxious to hear and share the news, and with letters as their only form of communication, the couple wrote daily. Despite frustrating mail delays, they continued their correspondence, eventually penning over 1,300 letters from May 1942 to October 1945. This second volume contains letters written during the fall of 1942, in the months following the birth of baby David. Told through their own words, Lots of Love, Daddy reveals a personal perspective of World War II as experienced by two ordinary people who did their best to remain connected while performing their patriotic duty.”
