Here is the truth about Captain America and the Howling Commandos that every World War II historian must come to accept at one point or another: we will never know everything. We won’t even come close.

So much was lost with the untimely death of Captain America. While the man beneath the uniform sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the myth lived on, only to grow bigger and more unwieldy as the years went by. Now, it is near impossible to tell fact from fiction, to separate out truth from propaganda.

In 1943, the Howling Commandos wrote goodbye letters to be given to their loved ones in the event of their deaths.

In 2014, Sharon Carter finds those letters in a tin can in an abandoned HYDRA base.

Things We Lost in the War (M | 31,648 | gwyneth rhys)

Tell me what is really true. Tell me if I belong to you the way I think I do, if these are not just lies someone put inside me to warp my mind. Tell me this pounding in my chest is what I feel for you and not fear.

Sincerely, Your Pal (M | 65,620 | lettered)

“[…] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history.” - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube

Hi,

So I wrote out some more lyrics and ukulele chords.

This one is Secondhand by debbyryan + The Never Ending.

It’s a really beautiful song.

I tried to match up the chords with what Debby had posted on tumblr and the live video on YouTube. Also, the strings tuning is F#, B, D#, G#

It’s not so often you meet someone while traveling that make you feel completely at home in a strange place and within yourself. I have to say goodbye to my best friend and UK travel buddy today - but I don’t think this is really goodbye, more of an “au revoir”, until we meet again. xxmk
