"Letters From Bud" is a memoir of the Second World War; a collection of letters written by John "Bud" Brandenburg during his time serving as part of the US Army Air Corps in Europe in 1944 and as part of the Allied Air Transport Command in North Africa and the Middle East in 1945. The letters were originally edited by Bud's mother, Edith, and published in a magazine called "The North Dakota Farmer" in 1947. The letters, never seen since that time, have now been re-edited by his daughter, Molly Brandenburg, and are presented in book form for the first time. "Letters From Bud" is available for order on,  at, as  well as at personal appearances and readings by Molly and the "Bud" crew.
