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”

Saturday, August 4, 1945

Dearest Gee. Thought sure I had a letter and a half today but it turned out to be the anniversary cards you sent. They were all pretty swell weren’t they. And for some reason or other they all wanted me and you to be together for the next one. Little do they know that weContinue reading “Saturday, August 4, 1945”

Friday, August 3, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got two letters from you yesterday and one today. Sho like that. Yesterday’s letters were dated July 22 and 24 (anniversary day) and today’s was 26. Not bad time is it? I would have written last night but had a pass to Oslo. Really didn’t want to go but theContinue reading “Friday, August 3, 1945”

Wednesday, August 1, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your two packages of towels and wash rags, complete with cigarettes and razor blades. Now I can wash again. I got one yesterday and one today but no mail. Sure thank you for everything. Did you say they came out of Mom’s cedar chest? She also has the hankyContinue reading “Wednesday, August 1, 1945”

Monday, July 30, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got your two swell letters of the 16th and 19th today and two packages. One had shaving cream in it and the other funny papers and four packs of cigarettes. Sure thank you, honey, but you don’t need to send me cigarettes. You probably need them yourself, don’t you? I also got anotherContinue reading “Monday, July 30, 1945”
