Friday, October 15, 1943

Dearest Gee. Received your Tuesday letter this noon so will try answering it now. Got a few minutes before I have to turn in some clothes. I have to turn in my service shoes finally. Have been lugging them around for lo these many months and they are just now getting around to having themContinue reading “Friday, October 15, 1943”

Thursday, October 14, 1943 (second letter)

Dearest Gee. Just got that delovely letter at five o’clock. I had two bucks that I was hanging on to for dear life so I really wasn’t dead broke. I had visions for awhile of going to New York with Close. Thought maybe the Captain would give us a pass from Friday night till MondayContinue reading “Thursday, October 14, 1943 (second letter)”

Thursday, October 14, 1943

Dearest Gee. No letter from you yet today. Maybe I’ll get one tonight. Haven’t got much to write about so I’ll just have to ramble. It was windy than hell this morning and has been all day. This morning we had one calisthenics and a little oration and drill on guard duty. Had a lotContinue reading “Thursday, October 14, 1943”

Wednesday, October 13, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got the “combination” letter today, kid. Got quite a kick out of it. Even that Leanne wrote. I don’t know her of course but gee, kid, ain’t you jealous? Boy, this morning we really had a work-out. Had rifle calisthenics and that never is fun. Then we drilled and drilled till we wereContinue reading “Wednesday, October 13, 1943”

Tuesday, October 12, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, how do you feel today? Sure wish you’d quit having those bad old spells. Anytime you get sick you call the doctor. I got your nice donation yesterday, thank you. We’re all broke but happy. Nearly everyone has allotments or sent their money home because they thought they were leaving right awayContinue reading “Tuesday, October 12, 1943”

Monday, October 11, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Wed, Thursday, and Saturday letters today, kid. Also got one from Sis. What are you trying to do, ride the sick book to? Being sick to your stomach don’t sound like nerves to me. Why don’t you have the doctor anyway when you’re sick? Do you have to ask your motherContinue reading “Monday, October 11, 1943”

Saturday, October 9, 1943

Dearest Gee. Just finished eating — terrible on account it was fish again — and no butter. Guess we used all our points up. Thought I’d better write this noon as I want to go to town tonight. Think I’ll take in some shows over the week-end. This will be the first week-end that IContinue reading “Saturday, October 9, 1943”

Friday, October 8, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I really rated today. In this morning’s mail-call I got three packages, and a letter from you. Sis sent me a box of fudge and some candy bars (Hershey’s), and Claude + Mildred sent me some of those big Hershey’s, and Es + Harry sent some candy and a whole lotContinue reading “Friday, October 8, 1943”

Thursday, October 7, 1943

Dearest Gee. Thought I’d better start using some of this airmail stationary for a change. Got quite a bit on hand now. Finally got the other package of airmail envelopes and v-mail yesterday, that you sent. Got a whole raft of back mail again too, today. Didn’t you say you’d sent me some airmail stampsContinue reading “Thursday, October 7, 1943”

Wednesday, October 6, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Sunday letter yesterday but went to town with Close last night so didn’t write any. Also got an A.P.O. one from Mom dated August 21 and a letter from Sis. She wrote 4 pages type written which is a record for her, I believe. Am writing this at noon so IContinue reading “Wednesday, October 6, 1943”
