Memorial Day With Donna Reed

Dear Donna - A Pinup So Swell She Kept G.I. Mail
This is a interesting and timely article about a shoe box full of touching letters from G.I.s to Donna Reed during WWII.  Whenever I think of Donna Reed, I always think of her role as Mary Hatch Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life.  Mary Bailey always represented a sort of idea woman for me. Also, I didn't know that later in life that she became an antiwar activist and supported Eugene McCarthy in 1972.  The picture below is from this wonderful Flickr set - Bathing Beauties, who had their share of letters from G.I.s too.
