Writing to a fellow service member, a lieutenant describes his view of Pearl Harbor and reflections upon the events of December 1941.

“Victory Mail,” a temporary exhibition open at the National Postal Museum, showcases the museum’s collection of World War II V-Mail correspondence. “V” for “Victory,” a popular World War II symbol, was the inspiration for the name of this new-fangled correspondence style.
