Letter mailed in 1944 finally arrives at its destination

A California man who received a letter from Alabama postmarked Aug. 9, 1944, said he is hoping to track down the rightful owner.

Gary McMaster, volunteer curator for the Camp Roberts Historical Museum, said a letter arrived in the mail last week with the 1944 postmark and addressed to “Miss R.T. Fletcher, American Red Cross Station Hospital, Camp Roberts, California,” the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser reported Thursday.

McMaster said the postmark listed Montgomery as the letter’s place of origin, but the corner with the return address had been torn from the envelope.
