Dearest Gee. Got your swell Aug 12 number yesterday after I had already wrote you, and today I got your Aug 2 one. So finally Chick hit the States! I’ll bet you all were excited. It’s a wonder Joannie hadn’t passed out. I don’t think Chick has changed in looks any only he looks older,Continue reading “Thursday, August 23, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got two nice long letters from you yesterday dated Aug 9 + 10th. Sure got a kick out of your birthday number. You sure sounded worried because you hit thirty. Honey, I’ve been thirty for the last two years. Don’t worry about it because in the pictures enclosed you lookedContinue reading “Wednesday, August 22, 1945”

Saturday, August 18, 1945

Dearest Gee. Was going to write you yesterday but got to feeling so tough that I didn’t quite make it. I had started one to the folks yesterday morning and I barely got that one done. Had a tooth yanked out yesterday morning and it sure knocked me out. Guess I waited too long toContinue reading “Saturday, August 18, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Might as well start writing while I’m sweating out a mail call. Should know in a few minutes whether I have any or not. When I do get some it generally is late mail. I think your letters are coming over airmail and mine are going by boat since it takes so longContinue reading “Thursday, August 16, 1945”

Wednesday, August 15, 1945

Dearest Gee. Gosh, honey, I sure have been neglecting you lately. But I think I had a good reason. Last Saturday I went into the P.X. bar to get a glass of beer and Lee and Close were there with a Merchant Marine officer. It was a guy from Lee’s hometown. Lee and Close hadContinue reading “Wednesday, August 15, 1945”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HONEY! Sure hope we spend that next one different from this. Have been thinking about you all day and wondering how and what you were doing. Are you going out and celebrate tonight? Hope you have a good time, kid, only take it easy on account your pappy may be coming to seeContinue reading “Friday, August 10, 1945”

Thursday, August 9, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, one more day and you’ll have another birthday. I won’t mention how young you are. Hope you have a swell day, honey, and I’ll be thinking special hard about you all day, if that’s possible. They have some fairly nice looking jewelry in town but it’s tabu to go in andContinue reading “Thursday, August 9, 1945”

Tuesday, August 7, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got three letters from you today, kid, and two packages. They sure hit the spot. They were nice long ones and had good news in them for a change. Sure am glad Chick is on his way — or should I say — home now? I’m looking forward to a letter from himContinue reading “Tuesday, August 7, 1945”

Sunday, August 5, 1945

Dearest Gee. Honey, I got your swell lil’ ol’ number of July 24 (2nd edition) today. Was mighty sweet. Also got one from my momma. I don’t have a hell of a lot to talk about today. Nothing new seems to happen. I’m sending you another edition of the Spearhead I case you’re interested. ItContinue reading “Sunday, August 5, 1945”
