Wednesday, January 12, 1944

Dearest Gee. Sho’ did hit the jackpot this time. Got eight letters this morning. Three from you, three from Mom (Dec. 11, 20, 25), one from Sis, Dec. 25, and one from Chick of Dec. 9. Yours were two v-mails of 22, 24 Dec. and an airmail of Dec. 16. My morale went up fiftyContinue reading “Wednesday, January 12, 1944”

Wednesday, January 12, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Dec. 12 jobby today. The one with the fancy Christmas stationary. Mighty fine writing paper there, kid. Where did you win it? Wish I could answer a few of your questions but of course I can’t. You needn’t worry about the dates as I’ll have those. I got a letter fromContinue reading “Wednesday, January 12, 1944”

Monday, January 10, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got a nice bunch of letters today. Got your Dec. 20th jobby, one from Dad, one from Mildred, and one from Esther. It was Mildred’s first v-mail at least she said it was. It was dated the 23, the latest one I’ve received from home yet. Kid, I sure don’t understand about theContinue reading “Monday, January 10, 1944”

Sunday, January 9, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got a letter from Erv again today. That makes two days in a row. New record. I wrote him one last night and wrote one to Chick. Guess Chick’s plans kinda got messed up a little. Hope you are appreciating these letters. I don’t have much I can write about but at leastContinue reading “Sunday, January 9, 1944”

Tuesday, January 4, 1944

Dearest Gee. Have been sweating out a letter from you for the past few days but no luck so far. Better be getting one soon as my morale is getting kinda low again. Just what in the hell is all this striking going on over there anyway. It’s about time somebody was wising up. AContinue reading “Tuesday, January 4, 1944”

Monday, January 3, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I’m still hanging around. Had a few narrow escapes but reckon I’m still supposed to come back to the States when this is over. The trouble is, this ain’t over yet, is it? I was sure glad to get those two letters from you yesterday. Then I got your Dec. 8Continue reading “Monday, January 3, 1944”

Sunday, January 2, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your swell Dec. 9 and 11th letters today. Sure am glad you got straightened out with the mail. I didn’t think I deserved that bawling out you gave me. Take it back? I try in every way to fulfill your requests but it doesn’t look like the prospects are very good. OneContinue reading “Sunday, January 2, 1944”

Saturday, January 1, 1944 (New Year’s Day)

Dearest Gee. Haven’t heard from you for quite a few days now. Should be getting another gob of them soon I hope. What did you do for New Years, kid? Have a good time? Sure hope we have a better one next year together. Personally, I think it’s about time we spent awhile together, don’tContinue reading “Saturday, January 1, 1944 (New Year’s Day)”
