This Just In...

So I woke up this morning and found this waiting for me on's webpage. The print version will be in the Sunday Oregonian tomorrow, August 26, but there is also a video attachment on this link, which I am still working on posting here.

Navy wife's incredibly long letter a detailed glimpse into home-front life of World War II

I'd like to thank both Oregonian reporter Katy Muldoon and photographer/videographer Motoya Nakamura for taking three hours out of their busy schedules (and being a fellow journalist I know better than most) to sit down and listen to me ramble and wax poetic about this project and what I ultimately hope to achieve.

I have no idea if this will make things easier going forward in the process, but right now, I'm just happy the story is out there for people to know about.

Holy crap...I'm actually a news story. Now I know how the people I cover every week feel.

  1. Wow - what a great story and for you, a fabulous opportunity. I can't wait to read more about your Grandmother's life in that time. I have always been fascinated by what happened to the people who sent those they loved off to war. They had to be strong in their loneliness and fear. Keep on going - I'll be following you on your journey of discovery.
