Monday, June 11, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I have never received any more mail since those letters a couple days ago. That must have been some sort of windfall. Now I’m getting nervous again. Maybe tomorrow. Went to Oslo yesterday and had a pretty good time. Sober too! There were four of us who went together. They haveContinue reading “Monday, June 11, 1945”

Friday, June 8, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I finally got some mail today. Got two swell letters from you and three packs of funnies. The letters were dated May 15 and 16th. Also got a v-mail from Mildred C. and one from Carrie. That should tide me over til tomorrow and then I”ll sweat it out all overContinue reading “Friday, June 8, 1945”

Thursday, June 7, 1945

Dearest Gee. No mail again today, honey, but maybe I’ll get some tomorrow. I sure am anxious to get some too. Seems like it’s been months. I went to town this afternoon. Man it sure was dead. They do have a little beer but that’s all. It’s a dark beer, and not bad as farContinue reading “Thursday, June 7, 1945”

Wednesday, June 6, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, Norway at last. Sure had a fine trip but was wishing to go west in place of north. I went by plane from Le Havre to here and really enjoyed it. Some of the guys got sick but, thank the Lord, I didn’t. Made one stop near Hamburg long enough toContinue reading “Wednesday, June 6, 1945”

Tuesday, May 29, 1945

Dearest Gee. Lord’s sakes, this month seems like it’s been six years long. Don’t know why but the days sure seem to hang on longer than they should. It doesn’t get dark until after ten and that doesn’t help matters any. I’ll sure be glad (I hope) when we get to Norway. At least itContinue reading “Tuesday, May 29, 1945”

Monday, May 28, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got three swell letters from you today, kid, and three from Mom. Sure was glad to get them too as they were the first I’ve received that were written after this war was over. Yours were of May 8, 9, and 18th. That ten-day one sure made good time, didn’t it? I wasContinue reading “Monday, May 28, 1945”

Sunday, May 27, 1945

Dearest Gee. Didn’t hear from you today, honey, but I got a v-mail from Coe dated May 14 so that is a pretty late one. I noticed she used the APO 4994, hasn’t anyone told her the latest one? I wrote her the other day and told her. I was kinda planning on going toContinue reading “Sunday, May 27, 1945”

Saturday, May 26, 1945

(Note: this letter and the one following tomorrow are dated the same, but only the following/tomorrow’s seems to have been written on the 27th. I believe this letter precedes the next one, but it is possible it follows instead). Dearest Gee. Got your May 2 jobby today and a swell package. It had candy bars,Continue reading “Saturday, May 26, 1945”

Friday, May 25, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got an old letter of March 28 from you today, but it was still welcome. Also got a nice v-mail from Coe. She sure has been a peach. She writes whether I do or not. In your letter you were telling me about being over to Kramers’ for Eloise’s party.Continue reading “Friday, May 25, 1945”
