This letter, from Fransico Moralez to Governor Schoeppel, details Moralez's experiences upon returning to Kansas after the end of World War II. Despite being a Mexican American U.S. Army veteran, Moralez faced a great deal of difficulty when attempting to readjust to civilian life due to the racism and discrimination that continued to exist at the end of the war.
