      Thanks Sean.
      I really appreciate it.He was A good man but 94 is a long life.
      When your mind starts going and people have to take care of you.
      That is tough on a proud man.
      I personally think we keep people alive for our own benefit,not thinking about dignity and quality of life.

      What year? The letter isn't dated.

      The V-5 program started pre- WW2 (late 1930s), but based on content "V-5 for Victory" this dates from WW2.
