This exhibition explores the typical wartime experiences of four women who served in and alongside the American military. In letters shared with family and friends, these women recorded their work, daily lives, and hopes. Their words were shaped by their own personalities and relationships, as well as by social expectations and policies like military censorship of mail written by Americans serving overseas. The online exhibition highlights a single document from each of these four women; more correspondence, wartime ephemera, medals, and uniforms are on exhibit at the National Postal Museum.
