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”

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”

Wednesday, May 9, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, it looks like one of the days of all days arrived anyway, didn’t it? I sure am thankful to have pulled through this far at least without too much injury. Guess the V Day must have been a flop since it was such a long drawn out affair. Don’t start expectingContinue reading “Wednesday, May 9, 1945”

Sunday, May 6, 1945

Dearest Gee. I had a field day of field days today honey. What do you think — I got that Christmas package you sent so long ago, along with four more. One package was from Mom but the others were from you, kid, and I sure thank you. We’ve had a section leader meeting everyContinue reading “Sunday, May 6, 1945”

Saturday, May 5, 1945

Dearest Gee. Lordy, honey, I sure collected the mail in yesterday. I got your furloughs of March 8, April 11, 15, and 17th, and three from Mom, one being a v-mail, and a nice card (Easter) from Mrs. Nelson. Be sure and thank her for me. Your March 8 letter had the picture of AnnaContinue reading “Saturday, May 5, 1945”

Friday, May 4, 1945

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any letters yesterday or today, honey, but guess I shouldn’t kick after that gob I got the other day. The package is all gone now. We ate noodles and jelly, eggs, fried potatoes and just before the meal we each took a snort of ye olden Taylor. T’were in the neighborhoodContinue reading “Friday, May 4, 1945”

Thursday, May 3, 1945

Dearest Gee. Honey, I’m sure getting way behind on my correspondence. I just can’t find the time or opportunity it seems. I hit the jackpot again and got four letters from you. Nice long ones too. They were dated March 17, April 3, 8, and 10th. Also got one from Erv, and one from Mom,Continue reading “Thursday, May 3, 1945”

Saturday, April 28, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your delivery package yesterday of a half peanut (?) and coke and noodles. Boy, did that go good. The boys all said to write you again so I am. It went down right easy. I also got a package from Jack and Hilah of fudge and magazines. Sure wasContinue reading “Saturday, April 28, 1945”
