Dearest Gee. Just saw a batch of mail go by with our mail orderly under it so we should get some letters today. Haven’t heard from Chick now for some time. He should be coming thru with one. I already owe Erv about four. Someday maybe I’ll catch up. How is the romance between BernadineContinue reading “Thursday, February 24, 1944”

Somewhere on the Anzio Beachhead Dearest Gee. Got that swell little Valentine from you. Sorry I couldn’t send you one. Also got Joannie’s nice card. Be sure and thank her and give her my regards. Got one from Jennie and Joe [Chick] too. Tell her thanks for me. As you can see my the headingContinue reading “Sunday, February 20, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Just showed Close your pictures. It is pretty well settled that the best picture of you is the one where you are sitting on the floor by the presents. From all that array of gifts spread out there, it looks like you did first rate. Sure enjoyed my candy and am still enjoyingContinue reading “Tuesday, February 15, 1944”

Monday, February 14, 1944 (Valentine’s Day)

Italy Dearest Gee. Well, I sure have hit the jack-pot the last few days. Got your two air-mails of Jan. 4th and Jan. 27. Also your four v-mails of the 12, 13, 14, and 15th. Then I got a letter from Erwin Hansons with their picture in it; one from Mae, one from Florence Nesler,Continue reading “Monday, February 14, 1944 (Valentine’s Day)”

(or possibly a second letter on February 10, 1944) Dearest Gee. Got your v-mail of January 17 yesterday. Also got a v-mail of Jan. 18 from Mildred C. And one from Sis of Jan. 21. The mail seems to be coming in pretty good now. Just hope it continues. That’s a good idea about keepingContinue reading “Friday, February 11, 1944”

Thursday, February 10, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I hit the jackpot last night on the letters, got your Jan. 8 and 11th air mail letters and the 18th and 10th v-mail letters. Also got a swell card from Mom that she completely filled with writing, and one from Erv, and one from Pauline Sedgewick. Was kinda surprised toContinue reading “Thursday, February 10, 1944”

Monday, February 7, 1944

Dearest Gee. Guess it’s about time I took my pen in hand and wrote you a few lines. You know somebody ought to make a different map of Italy because on every map it shows level places and there really isn’t any. All I can see is mountains. And what mountains! Sure would like toContinue reading “Monday, February 7, 1944”

Thursday, January 20, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I’m practically safe and sound for awhile anyway. Have a slight cold outside of that I’m as well as the next one. How are you and that flu epidemic coming along? Sure hope you don’t get that — any of you. The censor now tells us we can say a littleContinue reading “Thursday, January 20, 1944”

Friday, January 28, 1944

Dearest Gee. I’m having the same trouble with your mail as you are with mine. Namely, I just don’t get any from you. Get them from everybody else tho. Yesterday I got two packages, one from the Crofts and one from Dad. Es + Harry sent a box of chocolate and some package candy andContinue reading “Friday, January 28, 1944”
