Postcard from Duke!

My dad, Luke “Duke” Erwin Doerr, was in the Navy from 1939 – 1946. Sometime after he passed in 2009, mom gave my brother a few documents, including his birth certificate, a couple of newspaper clippings, a couple of pictures and this postcard my dad sent to his parents while in the Navy during WWII.  My brother sent me copies of them a couple of days ago (as most of you genealogists know, getting them was like waking up on Christmas morning). 

I just had to share the postcard he sent to his ‘folks’ dated 30 Oct 1943.
