WW2 Letters Home from the South Pacific by Angelo Buccino

WW2 Letters Home From The South Pacific

Nutley-Belleville Old Guard

8:30 a.m., June 14, 2019

Anthony Buccino will discuss his dad's book of letters home from the South Pacific during World War Two.

WW2 Letters Home from the South Pacific by Angelo Buccino is one GI’s view of the war amid the heat, bugs, carnage and noise in an artillery battalion supporting First Marine Division at Guadalcanal and other islands that never get mentioned.

Buccino wrote these long-lost letters to his best friend back in the states asking about the old gang.

They turned up nearly sixty years after they were mailed, censored, read by his buddy and then found again in a forgotten footlocker in his old friend’s attic.

Hear the whole story.
