    Default German Letters from the GARBAGE! Need Help Translating!

    Hello, all!

    These letters were found quite some time ago at our recycling facility. If I remember correctly, I received a few positive comments on them but then they were quickly forgotten about because of all my other great finds.

    I recently re-discovered these and I'd love to learn as much as possible about them. I'd especially like for them to be translated!

    Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks! Unfortunately, I had enough trouble transcribing the diary I found that was written by an AMERICAN B24 Bombardier in ENGLISH! Translating this would be an exercise in futility for me!
