The New York Giants Uncover Wellington Mara's WWII Letters

Giants release a video of World War II letters written by Wellington Mara.


Happy Veterans Day to all who have served our great country. Although we should give our thanks to those who have served every day, it's important to reflect on those who fought on the frontlines for our freedom.

The Mara family found letters from World War II that were written by Wellington Mara when he served. Wellington "Duke" Mara is one of the most iconic owners in NFL history. So iconic that the official game ball of the NFL is named after him.

The Giants released a video of Wellington's son and current owner of the Giants, John, reading his father's letters.

The letters consist of Wellington's journey fighting in the pacific war. It's a great first-hand look at what it was like fighting in World War II. It consists of rescue missions and what everyday life was like as an American soldier during the second world war.

If you're a history buff, I highly recommend this video. With raw footage along with narration, this is an A+ video. Listening to the letters, I don't know how these guys were able to stop their lives and fight in a war. I'm man enough to say I don't have the balls to do that.

Again, Happy Veterans Day to all who served.
