A postcard mailed in 1943 was delivered this year!

A family in Elmira, NY was surprised when they received a postcard sent from Rockford, IL that was dated July 4, 1943! The sisters that were supposed to have received the card are no longer alive.

The postcard was written by the sisters' parents who were visiting their brother at the Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant, near Rockford, IL.

Perhaps what's most surprising is that the card was delivered in mint condition, which has lead the people involved to believe that it was probably misplaced somewhere and found recently.
