Postcard mailed during WWII finally arrives at NY home
A postcard sent nearly 70 years ago has finally arrived at the former upstate New York home of the couple who sent it.
The postcard was sent on July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Illinois, to sisters Pauline and Theresa Leisenring in Elmira by their parents, Fox News reported.
Their brother, George, was posted at Rockford's Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant, an Army post during World War II.
Their parents were visiting him when they mailed the postcard to the sisters.
An excerpt from the postcard reads, "Dear Pauline and Theresa, We arrived safe, had a good trip, but we were good and tired."
According to Elmira's Star-Gazette newspaper, the postcard arrived last week at the family's former home, where a different family lives now, the news channel reported.
A postal official said that the postcard may have been found by someone outside the postal service and placed in the mail.
