Token of Love
Sitting in the hangar with his eyes heavenward, he breathes a final sigh of relief. It is V Day, and all the boys are celebrating. All he can think of, as he holds her monogrammed handkerchief and lock of hair, is getting back home to his Dollie. In every mission, these 2 tokens were tucked into his jacket pocket, over his heart, a talisman against harm. One thing he knew for sure was that as soon as he was home, he was going to propose to his angel; and he had decided, as a wedding present, he would have a pendant made for her containing her monogram.
