First Mail on Saipan
Geoffrey Rocker provided us with this article documenting the first mail on Saipan.
There are a couple minor errors in the article which was more than likely originally handwritten. Sgt. Leon "Lee" Padelskas is listed at Paoelskas, it is easy to miss the stem on the "d" and his hometown is listed at East Granby VT rather than East Granby CT. The VT and CT are easy to confuse.
