LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Dole Institute of Politics in Lawrence is exhibiting World War II letters between Bob Dole and his family for an online audience. The institute announced that the exhibit became available online Tuesday, marking the day Dole was wounded in the war. It shows correspondence between the former Republican senator and his family from September 1941, when he was a student at Kansas, through his military service until April 1947. Dole reported for duty in 1943 and was seriously wounded in Italy on April 14, 1945. He spent several years recovering from his injuries at Percy Jones Army Hospital in Michigan. Dole Institute archivist Audrey Coleman says the letters tell a story common to many on the home front and in the action of World War II.
