This is a letter from a lowly entry level Captain in the US Army during WWII.
It entails a trip on a General's converted B-17 from Tehran, Iran to Cairo, Egypt.
It was a 36 hour trip to see an American football game in Cairo for a priviledged few.
An interesting 2 1/2 page letter from February 1945.
This letter was written by my dad Chalmer Jaynes.
