July 28th, 1914 marked the beginning of World War I. The world was on edge enough that it sent ripples across the Atlantic Ocean that transformed into action with Kiffin and Paul Rockwell. They were compelled to join in on the preservation of freedoms. For them, and many of us, the support and defense of the dominated is at the core of being a citizen of the United States of America.
Kiffin and Paul made their way to the Great War and began to make an indelible mark on our family’s history that still inspires. Over the next two years, you will be able to read the letters Kiffin wrote while fighting in WWI. Paul published the letters in 1925 to join in the litany of other accounts from the war. If you can’t wait to read the letters, then acquire your copy and join in on this celebration of heroes.
August 6th is when the first letter was written. The letters are scattered over the coming months until 2016; 100 years after Kiffin’s final flight.
