They had only been married for about six weeks when her husband had to leave for war. Peggy Harris kissed her husband goodbye and thought she’d see him again in a few months. But that was the last kiss they’d ever share.
Billie disappeared and the military declared him Missing in Action. Then she was told he was alive, but got another letter saying he had been killed. She didn’t know what to believe.
