James A. Murray Vietnam War letters home, added to Digital Horizons

A series of 49 Vietnam War letters have been digitized, transcribed, and added to the North Dakota Historic Documents collection on Digital Horizons.  The letters were written by James A. Murray to his family back home in North Dakota.  The letters range from his time in basic training to his time on the front lines.  One really gets a sense of a scrappy young man, who grows and matures as he witnesses the realities of war.
