Letter sent to my mother:

11 August 1970 Dearest Florence,

. . . . . Steve would have been 24 years old on Aug. 1.
. . . . . . Don Holder and his family drove over to see us. They were very nice. . . . . Actually, Don had no news that I didn't already know but I did appreciate their effort. They are very nice and I hope to see more of them one day.
. . . . I believe both your Bill and my Steve were due another medal as this would have made 4 trips into the war zone and 4 stars in battle. I plan to have Steve's framed but right now I just put them away. . . . . .

Sincerely,
Mabel Schaefer
