A retired Iowa farmer receives a letter sent by his brother from California's Camp Roberts in 1943. Shortly later, the camp gets a missive postmarked in Alabama in 1944 and addressed to a woman who had worked at the Red Cross hospital there.

It was strange enough last month when an 85-year-old retired farmer in Iowa received a letter his brother had sent in 1943 when he was stationed at California's Camp Roberts. It was stranger still when, a few weeks later, Camp Roberts got a letter sent in 1944 to a woman who had worked at the Red Cross hospital there.
