In the months preceding D-Day (June 6, 1944), Frank and Pauline Elliott exchange a series of poignant love letters. Frank, just 23 years old, had left Georgetown University to enlist with the Army in 1943. He left behind his wife, Pauline, 24 years old, and their daughter, DeRonda, just a toddler, in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Frank died in the D-Day invasion.
