Dear John Letter

This 18-year old soldier that I knew received a letter from his unfaithful wife. He had a $10,000 life insurance policy with his wife as the beneficiary.  He asked me how to go about changing the life insurance into his parent’s name.  I told him he had to write a letter to the effect, and give it to our captain. He was killed the next day and the letter was never finished.

In the background is Lytell Christian, killed in action in Vietnam.   Also, Sergeant Sam Kay and Carl Lampers are shown.
