About Bruce

My Uncle Bruce was in the army in 1944 and 1945.  He wrote home almost every single day.  Read his letters for a vivid, comical account of life for 19 year-old Pvt. D. Bruce Hirshorn as he is shuffled from base to base across the USA!

Today, Uncle Bruce is the same upbeat, funny guy .  He’s 87 and he loves syrup and ships!  If you love his letters as much as I do and you’d like to write to him, you can do so at lettersfromaprivate@gmail.com
