Each month, The Kentucky
Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from
our faithful readers. Whenever possible, we try to publish as
many of them as possible in the 12 pages we have set aside for
"Letters to the Editor."
Here are actual letters from our September
Wants Info. On
I would like to hear from anyone who can provide any information
about my two brothers who served in WWII. Perhaps, there is someone
who served with them who is still alive and remembers them.
Glenn Thomas Holland (US Navy) was on the ship USS Howard Gilmore.
His nickname became "Hawkeye." I would like to know
why he was nicknamed "Hawkeye" and what happened to,
or where the ship might be. Perhaps, someone has pictures of
him and/or the ship. I believe he served at Pearl Harbor.
Joseph Wesley Holland (US Army Infantry, Front Lines) served
in Germany. He earned a medal for capturing several of the enemy.
Both brothers are now deceased.
Perhaps, readers can tell me more.

We had a lady from Ohio who brought two kinds of heirloom greasy
bean seeds to the reunion, just in case someone was looking for
some. She said she sees the letters in the magazine requesting

Regarding Graves County
I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation for all the
new information I received regarding a Graves County mystery
photo, which appeared in The Kentucky Explorer.
I was even connected with people who remembered the events, as
well as the stories.
