Elaine Noble Reas leans into her father, William Franklin Noble, in this photo from about 1940. Reas learned a lot about her dad from letters he wrote in 1918, when he was on the front lines of World War I. Reas, 87, recently wrote tributes about her father and two relatives who fought in World War II. She hopes other people will do the same to preserve the stories of veterans before the opportunity is lost.
