In December of 2014, I received 3 transcripts of letters related to Raymond Christensen from his great-niece, Karen.  Letters like this help current and future generations to better understand the war by seeing it thru the eyes of those who experienced it first hand.  I am so glad that Karen chose to share these letters with me and has provided permission to post them on this site for others to view.

The letters are posted, as links, on a new page called “Letters”.  This page is located under the Night Fighter History menu.  Or, you can just click on this link and head right to it.

I am interested in hearing from others who have letters that they would like to share on this website.  Please get in touch via the contact page!

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good Christmas break and New Year.  I have been away from the 417th site for about 3 months and it’s now time for me to get back to work!  Stay tuned for updates later in the month!

I noticed that a number of people posted comments to photographs and other items.  These comments were in my mailbox, pending approval.  I just got around to approving them.  Sorry for the delay.
