World War II Air Force Veteran Remembers 'Kisses' Sweeter Than Wine
Date:5/7/2009

SEBRING, Ohio, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- John Fraser, a WWII bombardier on a B-17 Flying Fortress, is still thankful for the Hershey kisses that he and his United States Air Force crews received while serving in England during the "Battle of the Bulge."

In a recent letter to the Hershey Company, world famous for their chocolate, John, age 91, wrote:

"I flew 35 missions over enemy territory. I got hit twice, shot down twice, and crash landed three times. Things were really tough for all of us and we didn't know how things would come out."

John noted that sugar was tightly rationed during the war, and that the candy available in England was "terrible."

"We needed a boost. We missed the good old U.S.A. candy," recalled John.

At Christmas time in 1944, John's memories of home turned to the Hershey kisses he had always enjoyed as a kid. John said that he collected some English money from his fellow flyers and sent the English pounds to the Hershey company requesting them to send candy "until the money ran out."

John wrote in his recent thank you letter to Hershey: "Right away you sent two boxes of Hershey's bars. What a welcome sight. The guys were so happy. You continued to send two boxes of candy every week long after the money ran out. You were still sending candy when I left England for home."

"In 2009, 64 years later, I have not forgotten. Thank you once more."

To acknowledge his thoughtfulness, John's letter of appreciation was reprinted in the March 2009 edition of "One Hershey News," the company newsletter. Along with Hershey's acknowledgement, they also sent a 25 pound box of Hershey kisses and 5 pound Hershey chocolate candy bar.

John is sharing his Hershey chocolate with friends and staff at Copeland Oaks Retirement Community in Sebring, Ohio, where he has been a resident for seven
