World War II Letters - 11 August 1943 - Written by Stan Cooper

Stan's new nephew, baby Jack, held by grand aunt, Piedad Piña Pape, 

with father, Bud, watching on in the background.

Stan writes home in answer to a family letter filling them in on how he is recovering from A.W.O.L. from his last visit home. He wishes he could join in the upcoming Family Reunion. He is thrilled for his sister's great birthday celebration. He also misses his new nephew and wishes for photos to witness his quick growth changes until Uncle Stan can cuddle the baby again. The above photo is later sent to Stan of "Jack, Jr." during the family reunion held on 29 August in Mt. Vernon, New York.

Stan also mentions his goal to be attending the U. S. Naval Academy within the year.
