New Book - "Dearest Bert"

"Dearest Bert - A Collection of Letters from World War II Hero, Alvin Mueller, Jr."
By Roxolin Bose Krueger

Alvin J. Mueller, Jr. joined the U.S. Army Air Corps and eventually became a decorated B-17 bomber pilot in the war in the Southwest Pacific Area (SWPA).

In 1942, 31 year old Alvin J. Mueller wrote letters home from the war. He described his day to day life and his role in the USAAC. His loving wife Roberta Mueller kept Alvin's letters. She carefully folded them into envelopes and placed them in order into her scrapbooks.

When Roberta died in 1998, Roxolin Krueger took home her late aunty's scrapbooks containing the letters which had been kept in her attic.

Roxolin Krueger upon reading the letters, realised their importance and compiled this book "Dearest Bert" utilising the letters from Alvin.
