There was no real secret to the v-mail process; in fact it was simple, the soldiers wrote their letters on a form provided and it was then photographed onto microfilm which was simply flown to the USA. A reel of 16mm microfilm could contain 18,000 letters and in terms of bulk and weight the roll of film took up only a fraction of what 18,000 real letters would take. Upon arrival in the USA the letters were printed from the film and then posted onward to the addressee.
This letter is written by my uncle Angelo Chlentzos.
The text reads:
Received your letter today and was very glad to hear from you again. I got to meet Philip a few days ago and we had quite a chat together. He was certainly glad to see me and I was likewise. The weather isn't bad at all here although we've quite some rain at times. I am feeling fine.
Philip also sends his regards. If you get a chance send me some gum or candy, other things I can get here ok. Best regards to you and Helen, also to the folks. Your brother, Angelo
