Submitted to The Union

“Letters from Dad!: Memoirs and World War II Letters of Arthur E. Sims,” a new book by Chris Sims, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

It was not until after his father’s death in 2001 that Chris Sims became aware of the treasure trove of documents left behind, including letters home from his dad while in his service to our country. Arthur Sims served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and also the Korean War. The letters had been hidden away in boxes for many years, until Chris recently discovered them and decided they needed to be shared with the world.
