Description: 154 letters, 2 postcards, and a photograph, 1945–1946. The letters are from Cyril Buzek to his parents and sisters in Lane City, Texas. Buzek came to Camp Peary, near Williamsburg, Virginia, in January 1945 for basic training in the Navy. After short stints in Norfolk and Newport News, he was sent to Panama in July 1945, where he was posted at various sites. The nearly continuous stream of letters ended in late December 1945, but there were two additional ones from Panama written in May 1946, shortly before he was expecting to be discharged. There are 71 letters from Camp Peary, January 23 – June 7, 1945; 8 letters from Norfolk, Virginia, June 9 – June 22, 1945; 4 letters from Newport News, Virginia, June 25 – July 4, 1945; 2 letters from New York City, July 7 and 8, 1945; and 69 letters from Panama, July 20, 1945 – May 30, 1946. Buzek wrote to his family frequently, sometimes more than once on the same day.
