Heartbreaking Letter From WWII Soldier To His Fellow GI And Love Of His Life

“The happiness when told we were going home — and the misery when we learned that we would not be going together.” And, let’s all have a cry.

1. Is there anything more heart-wrenchingly beautiful than men-in-uniform totally in love?

 

2. Doubtful. This letter serves as definitive proof:

3. Originally published in a 1961 issue of One magazine, WWII soldier Brian Keith recalls the love that changed everything:

*This is beautiful. Life is beautiful. Keep it together.*

*Love is real. It exists.*

*And we’ve lost it.*
